mmm both dresses are very busy, for my opinion I would have to know your height,? is this for a special occasion ? Visually I like the DVF a little, just not wild about the color blocking . MJ visually is a no for me.

Well, I am about 5'3" and I am trying to get out of my comfort zone in terms of color and print (I usually wear solids or blacks). It isn't for a particular occassion...just feel like this will be the year of the dress for me...hehe. I like the shape of the DVF, but I think the Marc would be more fun to wear in the summer.

Oh, I didn't even think about the bag for the Marc dress. I have a really pretty turquoise leather tote from Kate Spade. Maybe that's too much color. Hmm....need to think about that one....maybe a cute straw bag.

Then I would suggest the MJ at your height (which is very cute ) you can do with out all the fuss, the DVF will over power you.

I hope this helps you Suli

Good luck !
