Are people still using this as an outlet?

If so, I'm looking for some advice. I'm looking to buy a new dress for faire and need some help deciding. I've narrowed it down to four dresses. If you're good at this kind of stuff I'd love your opinion!

Step one, imagine me in the dress not you. ;-)

No I would not wear white to faire. I'd buy this in a navy blue.

2. Photobucket

Possible con for this dress is it clashing with Jennifer's plaid.

Pro being that it is the cheapest dress I am considering.

3. Photobucket

4. Photobucket

I'm not sure about the hood on this dress. Also not sure how ties in the fronts will look with my colossal boobies.

Let me know peeps!

I like dress #3. I think it would work well on your figure, and it looks comfy.

I think #3 or #4.

I also like #4 and #3. I'm having a hard time seeing #1 on you, but it might work, just hard to visualize two changes at once (color and shape).

#2... is underwhelming. And yes, contrasting plaids may trigger epilepsy. :)

Plaids might clash, but tartans never do. Unless one of them is Campbell, but that's another story.

Regardless, I like three.

Campbells don't clash so much as it's like bringing a 250 Ninja to a Harley fest.

I'm not sure about the hood on the last one either, but the advantage of the front lacing is that it looks like you can lace it narrower in the middle, and that will emphasize your curves. The part where the lacing would cross your boobs ... yeah, I'm really not so sure about that. You might have to move the lacing down.

I think the second and third ones are both cute and perfectly serviceable. The third one looks really comfy.

I like the first one. Navy would look great on you, and I think the neckline and the shape would look boobie-tastic. So that's my pick, but I think any of them would work for you.

I think you'd look fabulous in dress #3.

I like #3.

Either two or three; I lean toward two because it's a more classic RenFest look. The others just scream "SCA Event" to me.

I agree with duane_kc. I like two. I wouldn't worry about the plaids clashing! I think you would look great in number two.

Interesting, because #2 screams Bad SCA Garb to me and #3 is Better SCA Garb. The other two are definitely varying degrees of Rennie Garb.

I like #3 because I'd love to see the cleavage... but I'm like that.

A more serious call would be #4 because it is the most likely to work WITH your curves rather than against them. #1 and #2 seem like they're best suited to C and below.

I like the idea of Blue as well!

I'm another voice for #3.
