Don't you hate it when you're torn between two nearly-identical dresses? I've been admiring Metamorphose temps de fille's Lace Up Doll series for a while, it is SUCH a good deal for what you get, not to mention, an absolutely charming print.
I just have no idea what to pick because there are different things I love and hate about each style! I'll be honest, I'm leaning right, but my mind can definitely be changed!
About the style on the left: This is the mini-length style, which I prefer. I REALLY like the old-school headdress with that print, and I like how the bow on the front of the blouse is detachable, as well as the bows on the waist. Although I feel like Peter Pan collars are more flattering on me, I think the blouse here is a little too big for my liking. I also am not sure how to feel about the front lacing--I think it's a bit much for a dress that I was hoping would be a bit more simple in terms of cut and style.
About the style on the right: I adore the dress as-is. The single ribbon in the middle is just so darling. However, I really am not feeling the big head-eating bow. I've never been a huge fan of how they look on me, and requires a more over-the-top hairstyle, when I was hoping to kind of do more toned-down coordinates with this. However, I think I do have a headdress I purchased recently that I can interchange with the headbow that's a bit more bearable. The high-neck collar on the blouse is another cause of wariness--I have a shorter neck so I tend to look like a stuffed sausage in those kinds of collars.
Help me choose! Left or right??
