I went with the red dress posted below because I hardly ever wear red!

Bottom right: H&M crochet dress – post here (God that was a great weekend).
ps. I still keep looking at the cream one below most of you voted for, but I think I need the variety?

    Then you made the right decision. I was having a hard time telling you which to keep. But your post answered the #1 question I was wondering. Do you have anything red? Happy wearing. It’s a fabulous piece!

    The pure red dress, with your complexion was exquisite! great choice.

  3. Emm says:

    a difficult but good decision!

    I saw your post yesterday but honestly i was undecided (both so lovely) so i didnt post a comment haha. I do love the red, its very bold!
    Can’t wait to see you wearing it!

    Woohoo! You will look gorgeous in either & since you already have 4 cream colored dresses you made the right choice! :)smiles, gina

    HA well good decision. While it’s obvious that ivory looks amazing with your skin tone; the red looked just as lovely and it’s always nice to step out of the box!

    You definitely made the right decision, I love the way the red looks on you! Plus it’s going to be super fun playing around and making outfits with it

    So glad you picked the red, I just loved that rose detail with such a fierce color. It looked fantastic in the changing room, but I can’t wait to see you it on your post πŸ™‚

    I’m so indecisive it must be awesome having so much input when making the tough decisions.

  9. Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! says:

    So hard to decide, but I think red is a good choice πŸ˜‰ You have a lot of nice white dresses, why not add a red to the collection. hope you had a nice weekend! xoxo

  10. Lainey says:

    Yeah, that definitely makes a lot of sense. You look great in both colors anyway. πŸ™‚

    I love love love your curls! Which makes the crochet dress post my ultimate favorite out of this four! πŸ™‚

    I like the cream one better on you and the reason you own so many white/cream dresses is because they look fantastic on your skin! However, if you are looking in your closet and don’t find any red dresses then by all means, get a red one =) xo


  13. Rebekah says:

    good choice! Both look fab, so really, it’s hard to choose. I have so many black and navy dresses that I’m refusing to buy anymore. With that, I think you made the right choice!

  14. Anonymous says:

    πŸ™ you should have just kept both. heh

  15. Goodle. says:

    Cream looked so good on you though!
    I agree that you should have variety of colours and etc. But if you feel more comfortable in one colour, you will probably wear it more often! AND the cream suits your dark skin tone so well πŸ™‚ Anyway, both of them were gorgeous πŸ˜‰


  16. Maria@chicisimo says:

    You made a good decision! You looked great with both of them!! So both were going to be great decisions. You look amazing with these 4 cream dresses. You are lucky, girl!!!

  17. emilypanda says:

    i picked red first… but when I saw everyone elses post I second guessed myself and picked ivory too!! I think you are right to pick the red. I’m sure you will be happier with the variety!

    Hi Karen,
    I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now, but tonight is my first time leaving a comment! I guess I was too shy to comment before but have decided to stop lurking and start commenting on your blog (and my other favourite bloggers!)
    I love that dress, and think you made a smart choice with the colour. Realizing that you hardly ever wear red made me wonder what you would look like in a red lipstick! Anyway, I can’t wait to see how you style your new dress!

  19. Sjaar says:

    something different, but it does suit you!

  20. | Tex | Fashion Butter says:

    Good choice! This post inspired me to look in my closet and see what color dress dominates. Strangely enough, it’s red.

  21. Martha says:

    taking these 4 reasons into account i think the red was a good choice. Looking forward to seeing it in an outfit post πŸ™‚ <3

    Although you don’t wear red, often, you may want to go with the white dress because the red one may end up sitting in your closet unworn. Go with what you know and like because it will get the most wear out of it.

    Love these outfits, you look beautiful, white is gorgeous on you.
