Wow, I don't think I knew what spring1onu looked like! You have great hair and a lovely smile. I like the long dress too and pretty much agree with the consensus on everything else.

I'm jealous of the people who have good enough weather to wear spring dresses! I cannot wait for it to warm up and enough baby weight to come off that I can wear and shop for summer dresses. That's probably what I will be wearing to work all summer because they are so cute and comfortable. I want more people to post pics for sure!

I agree you have a lovely smile and beautiful hair . . .

I like both dresses, but not fond of the cardigan. It's kind of dumpy with the waist detail (thickening!) and ruffle. A slimmer cut, no ruffle, longer OR shorter (I forget what that's called, but not a shrug) even a slightly longer sleeve, would be more flattering, with the second.

I'm not sure the first (shorter) one should have a sweater . . .

For the first one, too, you might consider a lighter-weight or lighter color (NOT WHITE!!!!!!) sandal. The ones you are wearing are cute, but they kind of jump out -- they seem more the style to wear with jeans or shorts, or a heavier, longer skirt.

I like both dresses! Very cute - but I agree that you seem more comfortable in the longer dress.

I recently bought two cute dresses, but I don't have any pictures of me wearing either one, yet! I wore one to my sister's graduation yesterday, but it was hardly very 'springy' looking as I paired it with a long sleeve shirt and leggings underneath, due to a surprise drop in temperature!

I'm trying to stock up on fun dresses for my trip, as it would be easier to throw one of those on than have to worry about making outfits.

Anywho, this is one dress, which is what I wore yesterday (once my brother gives me pictures, maybe I'll post them ):
Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Kimono Sleeve Dress - Avalon Sea : Target

And this is one that I have yet to wear, because it's a bit too short to wear, yet! (And due to my height, it's not even quite as short as it is on the model... Thank goodness for short legs! )

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Knit-To-Woven 2Fer Dress - Navy/Cream : Target

I can't find any long dresses I like. I mean long as in right above the knee. All the dresses I find are way too short for my legs. I guess thats what I get for shopping in the junior's dept. The women department costs more though, but maybe I can find something worth it.
Try American Eagle clearance racks. They have tons of what they call "Mini Maxi" dresses this spring/summer. They hit me right below the knee, and I'm 5'10''-11''. I've picked up a dress and a skirt already, and I'll check back in a few more weeks to try and find more. They fit really nicely too.
Hmm I'm going to look! Thanks!

I like the shorter dress; you have great legs! But, you do look more comfortable in the longer dress.

I'm definitely more comfortable in the longer dress. I don't feel like I'm going to flash my bits to everyone if a strong breeze comes along.

SCG, those dresses are adorable!

Thank you RCC.

Webbie, that link won't work for me for some reason.

I LOVE this! It would look great on you! I want it too - am picturing it in the office with a jacket or cardigan and on weekends by itself....

Sadly, I have to return it. I was hoping it was the bra I was wearing, but the dress isn't friendly to my type of boobage.

I agree with the majority of others that say the dresses are keepers, the cardigan should be given to a 6-year old or her great-grandma.

Here's a dress I bought but I haven't worn yet because it's not warm enough. The dress in person is much longer on me, probably about 4-6 inches! It goes right to the knee. I plan to wear it with neutral heels.

If you call or email customer service they may refund you the difference.

Okay, I like many others...love the short dress and shoes on you spring! You have great legs...everyone's are white when summer starts (mine especially).

Definitely ditch the cardigan...or go with something longer in a color that's not white. I like the idea of the dusty blue or maybe a heather gray? I might like the longer dress on you without the cardi and some wedges. I think you need wedges to make the long dress not look too long for you.

Can you post pics of you in the dresses without the cardi? I'd love to see the top of the dresses.

As for spring dresses...I have been shopping like crazy..I have 2 weddings..one outside (casual) and the other in a church...little dressier. I'm hoping to kill 2 birds one stone with a switch of shoes and jewelry.

I'll post when I find one or 2.

Webbie...that dress is gorgeous..I'm so sad it didn't work. Can you try taking it to a store to find a bra that will work? I love the Kimono dress from Target. I bought one similar to that back after I had Chas...I still wear it. Hubby hates it but I love it..even looks good with jeans. Might have to get me another one.

I'm definitely going to try a longer cardigan, I see now that a short one isn't going to look right with it.

Both dresses are sleeveless and the shorter one I can get away w/o being covered (finally, something with good bra coverage!), but the longer one I have to wear something because the straps will always show my bra. There may be a way for me to fix that if I take it to a tailor though.

I'll try to get a few pics of the tops of them on a hanger.

Good luck with your dress shopping, can't wait to see what you find!
