Thoughts on life, fashion, fabulousness, and (oh yeah) dressing up from a full-time male who's a part-time female

Dazzling or traditional?


I thought I’d get away from the summer fashion emphasis of the blog entry I just posted and sidetrack to a couple of dresses I spotted at JCPenney.  While there yesterday, I tweeted this photo and informally put out this question:

Well, people of the blogosphere, what say you?  Which of these two dresses do you prefer?  Do you like the razzle dazzle and geometric patterns of the dress on the left, or do you prefer the formal presentation of the dress on the right?

Personally speaking, I myself like both of these dresses.  The dress on the left, the one with the “dazzling pattern,” looks tight, smooth, and so very sleek, probably thanks to the fabric (no runs or pleats there); the layout of geometric shapes will surely turn gazes and heads towards the wearer.  The “two-tone” dress on the right (this dress, by the way) looks oh so classy and elegant, but it does add its own playfulness through its fluttery sleeves and shutter-pleats on the skirt.

If you have a preference or a thought on either of these dresses, please comment below.  Thanks!

  1. Both outfits look good! I would say that the patterned dress (on the left) would make for a lovely time at a dinner party, while the one on the right would pair nicely for a casual time with friends. 🙂

  2. I think I’d go with the dazzle. Show off and have fun.
