E-Pic Help!

It is true that you get by with a little help from your friends. So, I'm asking you all for a little (more) help. After Sunday's post about my engagement picture clothing I decided to reevaluate my outfit and bring the options back to you.

First, here is what Jus will be wearing.
I might be biased, but he's really hot, isn't he?

And here are my options.

Jus is convinced that the reason I looked so bad in the yellow dress is because I wasn't smiling, I tried it on again and I've gotta tell you, I feel better about this dress today. It doesn't look quite so shiny outside.

I got this black & white dress at a boutique in our town a couple of weeks ago, I think it'll be great for a bridal shower, but the white doesn't match my cream shoes.

I wore this red dress for Valentine's Day two years ago but the red isn't exactly the same color as the hearts on my shoes.

This is my go to summer wedding dress, the coral color looks great when I'm tan but again, the color just isn't the same as the hearts on my shoes.

And then I caught wind of the Zac Posen line for Target and saw this gorgeous number.

So like any normal person I made Jus take me to Target ASAP so I could try this beaut on. Unfortunately none of the Targets around us have the red version of this dress, but they did have the black & navy version.

The skirt is removable so this dress is a 3 in 1, which is kind of cool.

The only thing I wasn't sure of was the volume of the skirt, especially without the ruffly over skirt the dress makes my bottom half look rather wide.

I think the red version will be at our Target later in the week, so I might have to make a trip back.
While I was at Target I tried on another Zac Posen dress but it had a funny slip which made it bunch up unattractively.

That's where I stand, I need some help deciding what to wear, or if none of these options are good I can try to hit up the mall later in the week. I promise I won't get offended with your opinion, unless it's something like "You are an ugly troll that should wear a rain jacket and hood so as not to distract from Jus's good looks," but I have a feeling you're too nice to say such things. :)
Pretty please with sugar on top help me out.
Thanks in advance darlings and don't forget to sign up for my giveaway if you haven't already!

I like the yellow! I totally want that Zac Psen dress in the navy, too. He did a line for Target Australia once and it sold out in a few days even though it was really ugly and no one in Australia has heard of Zac Posen. I never saw anyone wearing any of it. I guess they just bought it to re-sell on eBay.

Hi Cole! I have to be so bold to tell you that the yellow dress is my choice. It's the most flattering on you (always a bonus!! :), and super-springy to go with your man's outfit. Also, which I know you'll like this, it totally compliments your heart shoes!! So, that's my choice. Next in line would be the Zac Posen with the frills...super cute! Have fun with your pictures!

I pretty much have to agree with the 2 before me. Outside the yellow looks much better and definitely compliments your form. However I do also really really love the Zac Posen frilly one, with the frills is just so fun and looks great on you cause you can totally pull that fun-ness off and even without the frills looks really classy and cute :) And I like the color but thats just me, and the red would look great with your shoes. Jus looks very cute btw, how come boys are so much easier to dress?? Good luck!!

I still like the yellow dress i have the whole time ha. the summer wedding dress just isnt fun enough and nothing special. I do like the valentines dress but i think because the shoes are farther down you cant tell they arnt the same color. Also i do love the red zac posen one and think that would be super fun. I wouldnt take the skirt off though because it isnt the most flattering from the side! Well thats the MOH oppinion! good luck choosing!

I completley think you should go with the black and Navy Zac Posen dress WITH the ruffly skirt on it! It looks UH-MAZING LOVE IT! Plus it will go super well with his blue shirt!

the yellow. loveeee the yellow on you!!! but it depends, are you wearing something over it? cause I think you look AMAZING in just dress + shoes, but if there was a jacket or something I might pick a different dress choice...

Okay, I take back what I said on your previous post, it doesn't look like a prom dress when you're outside. I really like the yellow!

I like the reds also! They too look great on you. I can't tell in the pics that the reds aren't the same color as your shoes, however, I think the yellow looks better than reds with what your man is wearing.

You look great!

I'm stuck between 1 and 3. I like 1 because it's such a warm color and you look like a total babe in that dress, but 3... 3 is so romantic, with the roseate bodice and the flowing skirt. Plus it makes you look like you stepped out of a different time. Never mind, I just made up my mind -- I say go for the third dress. :D

I love the yellow dress. It's so cute! I also really like the dress from Target. You must get it just for the fact that you can wear it many different ways.

I like the yellow dress, but I don't like it with the shoes (and I LOVE the shoes) :( I like the strapless dress with the shoes (if the color differs, I really can't tell) and I LOVE the Zac Posen dress- I'm crossing my fingers you find it in red soon!

I personally love the yellow dress, but not with those shoes.
If you're planning on wearing the shoes, I'd go with the coral dress.
