Help my Mom choose the best dress!

Next week my Brother is getting married, and my Mom had no idea what to wear to the rehearsal dinner, so she went on a bit of a shopping spree and came home with five new dresses. But she is even thriftier than I am and didn't pay more than $25 for any of them!
In need of an objective eye, she asked if I could take photos of each, and put it to a vote.
So, what dress looks the best?

Which Dress Is Best?

Thanks for your help!
My regularly scheduled outfit post will be up later tonight!


  1. I voted for the black with pink bow! But the Black and White print was a close second!! :D
    They all look great on her :)

  2. I'm partial to black so I picked the first! Also I love the dog in the foreground. So cute!

  3. I think the purple one has the most flattering fit on her, but the black and white print is my 2nd choice, its flattering too! The solid black one would be my 3rd choice.

    In my humble opinion, I don't think the other two are as flattering, but that's just me!

  4. AWWWW SHUCKS. Happy early marriage to your brother! (Is that what you say? No, I highly doubt it.)

    Anyways, your mum is gorgeous - as are all these dresses. You honestly can't go wrong with any of them! But as you probably know, I'm a sucker for colour, so I totally swooneddddd at the purple sheath. GORGEOUS.

  5. I voted, but have to say that your mom looks great in all of those dresses, the lucky lady!

  6. black with pink ribbon! Very classy and it flatters her figure. Besides, it makes her look younger than the other ones

  7. I say the purple, it looks great on her! Are you sure she's not your older sister? Just kidding, your mom looks great, if not the purple than the first black one but by far the purple!

  8. Firstly all these are pretty great choices. But you know I love a black and white print anyday :)

  9. They are all lovely, but I like the purple sheath the best.

  10. I voted for the purple sheath - the cut and color look so great on her and it seemed like more of a fun. romantic look for a rehearsal dinner.

  12. I voted for the pink bow, but I also love the black and white. Both give a chic, classy yet fun look...they also are youthful dresses...sorry, purple didn't hit me as youthful! Tell her I have been going through the same things and show her my post with the floral dress...that is what I am wearing to our rehearsal dinner!!

  13. I picked the black with the pink bow because I think in 10 years when she looks at photos she'll think "damn I was hot!" The purple does fit nicely but I don't think it's quite right for her skin tone ... maybe it's just the photo though. The black and white is also nice but a bit more daytime/office-y.

  14. I had a hard time deciding between the black and white one and the purple dress. She looks good in both!

  15. As a Mom (and stepmom) I've gotta say the black with the bow is absolutely perfect. I wore black (a Nicole Miller number) to my daughter's wedding and I found it to be perfect for the occasion. Subtle and sexy. Love the bow and how it accentuates your mom's beautiful curves.

  16. Black with pink belt. Your mom.looks chic and young in that dress.

  17. How gorgeous is your mom?! I like the purple sheath best - but was torn between that and the black polka-dotted.

  18. Wow, tough call! I liked the first couple, but then when I got to the purple one - wow! It's such a fun, vibrant color, and it looks fantastic on your mom! Also, how cool is it that she asked for your/our help on this? :)

  19. I'm voting for the B&W graphic print dress, but I think she should keep that lace one and get it shortened to her knee, it's a great fit but a little too long. Also can she take me dress shopping, how did she find such good deals on these?! hahaha ;)

  20. I voted for the black and white print, but I think they are all beautiful!

  21. I love the purple, but before I vote quick question, what time is the wedding? And Weston Wear for under $25 is an amazing deal... where?

  22. You got a good looking mommie !
    I am thinking its a day time wedding right ?
    Well, I am all for the black and pink dress. It's gorgeous !!! and she totally rocks it- tell her I said so.
    Oh, what is Chloe wearing ?
