So I'm thinking of buying this dress by Surface Spell (through Qutieland). It's a replica of Victorian Maiden's Fairy Chiffon Doll Dress, which I adore (if you look at both links you'll see every colour except the red). Victorian Maiden doesn't sell that dress any more, and the Surface Spell one costs about one third of the price. I'd love to buy it, but my problem is this:
What colour do I get???
It comes in white, offwhite, red, dark red, black, and pink. Out of those, I only like offwhite, dark red, and black. So out of those three colours, which one do I choose?
Should I buy one, see how I like it, and then buy the other two? That's a bit wasteful, and weird.
Offwhite could look a bit like a wedding dress, but it also is easy to coordinate. White goes with pretty much everything. But I am kind of pale, and it could wash me out.
Dark red is one of my favourite colours to wear. My favourite coat is dark red, my favourite hat is dark red. I wear red cardigans all the time. But a whole dress made of red... would that be a bit much?
Black would be gorgeous, but I don't know if I can pull it off. I have some black performance clothes and it looks weird if I wear them while I'm not performing. However, it would be fairly easy to coordinate... maybe.
I'm in a PICKLE.
