Are these too dressy for my shower?

Shower is supposed to be a surprise, but my FI slipped, so now I know..which is fine, I just totally have to play it off for my  mom and sister, they would be upset if I knew.

Anyways, my FI is going to lure me by telling me that it's our friends Jack and Jill bridal shower..so then I can at least me dressed nicely.

I found these 2 great dresses I love,  was thinking of wearing one of them. The black one is actually shorts. What do you think.

    Truthfully- I think they are "hot" for a club scene, not a shower, but I dont know you or your style.

    Cache!!! We are going to Greece for our Honeymoon and they just launched a whole new line that is geared towards it, so I figured they will be great for the HM too! Sadly no sales! ugh!

    I prefer the first one, I agree that the 2nd one looks like it'd be for a club

    Oh I disagree!  Haha... I think the fact that it has shorts makes it more casual.

    And I think that the choice of shoes and accessories will make a big difference regarding how dressy or "clubby" the outfit is.

    I love both!  :-)  I think they are a nice change from the typical summer dresses that so many girls wear to their showers.

    I like the blue one! They are a little clubby, but if they make you feel like a hottie -go for it :)

    I think they're both very cute, but would go with #1. I also agree they lean towards the going out/club scene though...

    I'd go with the first one. The second one is way too short IMO.

    If it were only up to those two, I would choose the blue & buy the other for your honeymoon.

    However, I would look for something a little more conservative for the shower, but that's just me.

    Out of the two, I would go with the first one, it's very pretty and more appropriate. I agree, the second one makes it look like you're ready to go clubbing, not a shower.

    I like the first one better for a shower.    I plan on getting the second one for my honeymoon!  Cache has coupons that they send in the mail!!! ie $25 off $100 purchase.

    i like them both, but are you really tall?  either way - i wouldnt wear heels with either on of them.  like PP said...its too club-y.  go with flat sandals or some flat boots (depending on the weather) to make it not so flashy.  then on your h-moon - flash it up!!!

    <div>I agree with this.  Particularly about the second one -- WAY too short for a shower, and black does not strike me as a shower color.  But I'm sure if you buy one you'll get good use out of it -- bachelorette party? fancy night out over the summer?  And the blue one particularly isn't so "now" that you won't be able to wear it next year.</div>

    Way too revealing for a shower full of women... not really appropriate, but maybe in your crowd they are... Summer honeymoon in Greece- totally great for clubbing there, u will love Greece..

    I really don't like the second one and don't think it looks like an outfit for a bridal shower.


    I think the first one is ok though.  I personally wouldn't wear something like that to my shower, but it's better than the second.
