The Talbot's dress is a size pp and the Ann Taylor is a size xsp.
The feel of the sweater material is quite different in each dress. The Talbot dress feels much softer than the Ann Taylor, and the cowl neck falls much easier on the Talbot dress as well. The hem is a bit longer on the Talbot's which I think would be more versatile making it appropriate for multiple occasions. The color of the Ann Taylor one is really special though.
Overall, I'm thinking the fit of the Talbot's is more flattering and I think I'll probably get more wear out of it, but I'm wondering which one you guys prefer? Any preference one way or another?
