TFI25: Which Greta to Wear?

Toronto Fashion Incubator, an award-winning organization that promotes and supports up-and-coming fashion entrepreneurs celebrates its 25th anniversary on May 3 (yes, THIS THURSDAY!).  They will be holding their annual New Labels fashion show, where emerging designers compete for a coveted $25,000 to help them further their line as well as a networking reception and post-party.  I will, of course, be wearing something by a Canadian designer to the event (pretty much unofficially mandatory to wear SOMETHING Canadian – LOL).  I’ve already decided to wear Greta Constantine (one of the jersey dresses), but the question is WHICH ONE?!

Option 1: Salmon/coral maxi, purchased at their sample sale:

  •  Shoes: STUART (Stuart Weitzman), size 5
  • Bag: 442 McAdam

Option 2: Teal maxi, purchased at TNT

  •  Shoes: Stuart Weitzman, size 4 1/2

Apparently Option 1 was a sample that never went into production in that form, so if that’s the case, it’s one of a kind.  Option 2 is an absolutely gorgeous colour.  It’s also a dress I don’t want to make any changes to – Option 1 could look good shorter

  • Shoes: The Odd Slipper (Ilona), size 4 1/2
  • Bag: 442 McAdam

The dress code is “black tie optional,” so I guess the third Greta jersey dress (above, also from the sample sale) I have would not work as it’s short (originally of a similar length, but cut shorter so I’d have something different) and probably a bit too casual.

So Team Coral or Team Teal?  Maybe even Team Blue?
