    Navy Ball Dress Help

    Advertisements
    DB and I are going to the Navy ball next month, and I'm trying to decide what to wear.
    I remembered these two cool vintage formal dresses my mom had at her house that we'd found at my grandma's, and asked her to send them to me. I can't decide which one to wear, or whether I should just look for something else?

    I know there's been a lot of debate lately about short vs. long dresses for the balls, and that's not really what I'm debating here, I'm comfortable wearing a shorter dress as long as it's appropriate, and to me these are as they are formal dresses. (Although you can always argue with me if you want! ). I just want to know which one you like better!

    TIA!

    Option 1:





    Option 2:





    Thoughts?

    Definitely the black. The white is cute, but it's too springy/summery.

    It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

    if you're already going with a shorter hem-line, i'd definitely go with the more formal color. (#2)

    It's strange - when I saw them today my vote was the white, but after seeing them on you I think I've changed my mind! The black looks awesome!

    For this time of year, I would def. go with the black. I also think the black shows off your hourglass shape more.
