The dress looks great on you.
I would go with the first, the shorter lacy one, or, for a bit more of a tame choice number two, the longer one with the crocheted look. I am not a fan of the furry one, even if it makes you taller :-) .


I would go with #3. It screams holiday attire and with the right necklace, it will make your outfit glamorous and appropriate for a work party. I love the dress. I am in shock that you found it at Marshall's. I may head there to see what I can find. Whatever choice you make, you will look beautiful with your wonderful smile.


#2 is my favorite, but I think that all of them look good with the dress. The purple is a beautiful choice! Have fun at your party. You're a knockout!


I perfer 3, judging by the photo. I agree fur seems more festive, too.

Jen on the Edge

1 or 3.

Love the dress. You look smashing.


I like 1 or 2.

unmitigated me

The silhouette in the first picture is really flattering. I'd have gone with black or metallic!


GUG is a smart aleck (wonder where she gets that?). I like #2. I like that there is a bit more coverage. This may be your mother talking.


I love #2! Very holiday appropriate.


I mean two in the pictures of you. The Fuzzy one

Jenn @ Juggling Life

Looked high low for gold. Nothing flattering in black.

I like the lacy one best. Yes, the furry one is more festive yet I wasn't thrilled with the bulk. The other one looks too much like a regular sweater to my eye.

Oh how I love Marshall's! That's a fantastic dress!!


I like #1 the best but I also think black would look better. But the dress is fabulous! And I understand the need to change it up. My daughter told me I only wear black & white dresses. I didn't believe her until I looked in my closet & counted 8 of them!

I think the furry one is a bit bulky. I like both the others, but think the lacy one is a bit more fancy/festive.

You are rocking that dress! A beautiful color on you!


I like #1 the best :-)


I like Number One, for this reason: The sleeves are look a bit longer--sleeves that come a little closer to elbow are more flattering than ones that stop mid-bicep. Let me add that I don't actually think your arms need slimming--but in general, that's something to consider.

The furry one is the most fun--but I agree that it might be a tad bulky. And I think the purple dress is sensational! Eleven dollars? Even better! You'll look perfect.

And finally--great shoes! Promise us you'll take a picture of the whole outfit before you leave (ghost of prom dates past...) Have fun!


Lacy number 1 is first choice, furry festive number 3 is second choice, number 2 is too everyday. The dress is smashing. I am going to Marshalls.

1 or 3. You look cute!


My favorite is #2, like #3 as well.

The Zadge

Number 3 for sure. Much more fashionable and festive.


I really wanted to like the furry one but it looks like a fur collar with sleeves when you have it on.

I like #1 best because it looks more festive. #3 is just a sweater.

You look fantastic, btw!

My gut instinct is the furry one. It's more festive and formal. Or the one on the left, which is delicate. The one on the right is too long and caszhs the whole thing down. Also: I would probably throw on some black tights with a cool pattern and black heels (not peep toe), or opaque back tights and some purple heels (again, not peep toe).

LOVE the purple dress -- what a deal! -- and I vote for the lacy shrug. If you lived in a cooler climate, I might be tempted by the furry one, but since you don't... the lace reminds me of snowflakes.
No matter which one you choose, you are going to look fabulous!

Jenn @ Juggling Life

If The Zadge approves, thats my pick as well. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt looking like I was trying to look too young.

Did you see my message on Facebook that I will be in Colorado May 19 20?

I like #1, which shocks me, since I'm not usually a lace kind of gal, but it looks great on you! I love that you are being daring. Have fun!


Love the dress and I go with what was behind door #1!

gary rith

men know better than to EVER comment on a woman's outfit other than to smile and say "that looks great!" ;)

Susan Walker

I'd say #1 or #3, as well. I love the furry one...looks very dressy & fun!

You look gorgeous, Jenn. LOVE your hair.


not the furry one.

Busy Bee Suz

I think they all look great...and the dress is just smashing. If someone were to hold a gun to my head to choose one. {please don't let that happen} I'd go with #2, I like the way it cuts at your waistline.
yippie for a party!


Lacy is top choice, followed by furry. Lacy is more flattering but furry would do. Love the dress!

Shrug #2 (the 3rd pic on far right) is my fave. Something about the sleeves is more flattering overall. Purple is a great variation on the little black dress and what a steal at $11 !! Classic and understated is my personal style too.


#1 or #3. Have a great time! :-)

Nell Jean

No. 1 looks more partyish. The furry one will get hot before the evening ends, I bet. The other one just looks like a sweater, less festive.


I write to you from the future, and I know how this turns out: with the best possible decision and you making Angie Dickinson in her POLICE WOMAN years look like a hag in comparison.

I have no idea why that reference popped up just now.

But, trust me: you look amazing.


I like 2 and 3. The fur one is best for the party. Number 2 looks good on your so buy it as well, save it for a fun night out this summer with a tank and skirt.
