keep or return: Topshop Peter Pan Tunic

keep or return: topshop peter pan tunickeep or return: topshop peter pan tunic
dress: topshop (£28)

Ok guys, another keep or return! Not the normal stylee though, Basically I need so advice on which colour of the dress to keep! Now trust me, I'm in love BIG time with this dress. At the moment anything peter pan collared is instantly put into my basket. I think they are just amazingly cool. Its little seethrough (WHY DO YOU DO THIS SO MUCH TOPSHOP!), so I am going to get a slip to go under the one I choose. In an ideal world I want to keep them both, But my heads telling me "Lily, You only REALLY need one colour"

The nude is absolutely dreamy. I feel so girly and sweet in it. I want to wear a flower in my hair and some polka dot tights or team it with my heart print cardigan and some socks and brouges. Then again the black is tougher and reminds me of the Adams family. I have these awesome puesdo goth fantasies of ways to style it up. Studded cuffs and big chunky boots, Layered up with grungy cardigans, thick tights and my Babooshka headband!

To me they have two very different feels to them, and in all honesty I like them both equally and I need some feedback on which to keep! What do you think? Shall I be naughty and keep them both, or shall I keep one over the other? Or do you totally hate the dress? Let me know in the comments!

PS. Who likes the new Topshop website layout? Personally I hate it. Its so hard to navigate and weird. The other one was much nicer aesthetically as well!

  6. I like both of them and i think both colours suit you. If you are choosing one though i would go with the nude.

    I like the new topshop layout. I think it will take a bit of getting used to though. I think because it is white it makes it look clean and fresh :) x

  7. Take the nude one! the peter pan collar stands out in the nude one and kinda gets lost in the black one!

  8. They are both so lovely but I would go with the nude. Everyone has an abundance of black dresses so the nude will stand out more in your wardrobe and the colour is perfect for summer plus the collar stand out more which is the all important feature

  9. The nude! It's gorgeous and I think the collor and detail at the top stands out more in the nude!! I'm defo getting one of them next time I'm in topshop :)

  10. I think you should keep both, they're so pretty and look really different from one another :)
    I used to have a really pretty short sleeved jumper type tops which I had in a deep purple and pastel pink as they both had such different looks :)

    but if you have to just keep one, then I'd say go for the nude one :)

  11. I like them both but overall i think the nude is nicer, it suits your skin tone much better and you notice the collar more :)

  12. I love them but i personally think the black is better. Maybe it's the lighting but the nude looks a bit of a weird colour.

  15. nude nude nude! i dont know why. i like black too, but it just looks so cute on you. and just think - how many black clothes do i have ?lets go for something different. definitely really cute though. nude for summer! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. i personally think the nude is the tastiest :)
    you got the dress for the collar after all, and you can it the most here! xx

  17. The way you have planned what to wear each colour makes it much harder to choose. I like how you have described to wear the black dress a tad more though! But to me I wear too much black and would prefer getting something different. So to be honest it's up to you, you already have both so why not keep them? Wear one take it back? Ha. X

  18. Tricky tricky! I personally like the black one more but I think if you're going to do something like a Peter Pan collar the lighter colour is a little more interesting and quirky, rather than the black which is cute but safe. Keep the light one :) (And the black one should you feel you've been very well behaved recently!) xo

  19. Definitely nude! It's pretty on your skin. Black is a little too harsh.


    Beautiful dress though.

  20. I love the nude. It's so pretty and vintage-looking. You must keep it! :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love BOTH but if you have to choose one then nude! The black is a classic but I love the nude and the collar stands out more on that one :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  22. the nude ones much prettier and suits you more :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Keep both!..Obviously

    Nude for day time, black for evenings.. Two totally different entities!

  24. I like the black more! Cute Cape u got.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I, myself, would go with the black.. BUT I'm a little biased since 98% of my wardrobe is black. They're both super cute tho, so any choice is a good choice. (:

    And I'm really bothered by Topshop's new layout, too! I liked the simplicity of it all before. I'm sure I'll manage to keep finding things to buy tho.

  26. You look gorgeous in both, but for me personally, I like the nude best :)

  27. I like your suggestion to grunge up the black dress in a Wednesday from the Addams family style, however I think i prefer the nude dress, as Michelle said the collar is more noticeable :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think you should keep the nude version. The black is really nice, but there are loads of black tops with that shape out there and the collar detail doesn't stand out much. The nude is more individual, more versatile and could be styled so many different ways - if you want to do the goth thing you could still do it with this if you layered with lots of black and tons of silver jewellery! x

  29. Personally, I would keep the black one because I have always been a black person and it slims me down. You look great in both but I reckon nude would be a better choice :D

  30. You should keep the nude one, it is very cute. And I actually like the new topshop layout

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like them both. They really are very different from each other, even though it's the same dress. I would go for the black one, but that is just because I am always playing it safe when I have to decide something like this..

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the nude one! It's versitile so you can wear it in the winter with a cardigan, or in the summer by itself. Also, it gives the look a bit of color instead of just plain black.

    ReplyDelete
  33. if you had to choose one, i would say the black one .

    ReplyDelete
  34. Shiz... I was totally thinking the peachy one was best (it matches your Rosy cheeks!) before reading all the way, but then I heard your vision for the black one and you sold it to me... If you can afford it, I'd say keep both because they serve completely different visual purposes!
    But if you HAD to choose, the peach one suits you down to the ground. xo

    ReplyDelete
  35. keep them both! And what a wonderful price!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really love the nude one, I feel as though it looks so unique and absolutely lovely with your skin tone!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The nude looks good on you! If the black had a white collar then it would be perfect but as it is now it doesn't really stand out x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Keep both, you know you'll regret it if you don't!
    xo

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would keep the nude one, it's gorgeous! It could easily be styled in a cute, girly way or toughened up with black accessories and chunky shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  40. BOTH!! It looks like everyone is choosing the nude and it is super cute but I love your thoughts on the black one being a bit Adams Family.
    Keep them both!

  41. Oh Gosh, i wouldn't never call that a dress :$ sorry, too short for me; but you look gorgeous i both colors. But i prefer the nude, to be a little bit different.

    ReplyDelete
  42. both colors look sooo good on you so I say, keep em both! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. hello
    this is the first time ive visited your blog and the first post i find had me hooked.
    firstly keep or return? thats totally me, i can never make decisions on what i should keep.
    also i absolutely love your dress in both colours, but i think the nude looks great on you. I havent seen this in my local topshop, im so jealous. I'd grab one without a second thought! x

    ReplyDelete
  44. they both look awesome on you!!! whatever one you like best keep!! i personally love the nude one on you, the black one is super pretty but the design of the dress looks so beautiful with the lighter colour!! it would look great with your heart cardigan for sure!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. Peach for sure. But that's just me.

  48. honestly, i think you should keep the black one because it's way more easier to style and you can basically wear it with anything. On the other hand the nude one doesn't seem to clash well with your skin tone (unless you edited it, by any chance).
    Keep the black, return the nude :)
    hope i helped.

  54. i'm a massive fan of both.
    hmm although black may get you through more seasons as essentially black never goes out of fashion! yet the way you plan to style the nude version is so cute. KEEP BOTH, you only live once.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love them both! I prefer the black a little more tho as I think you could make that have different looks, whereas the nude one is always going to just be girlie :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  56. BOTH!
    You clearly have an ideavof what you'll wear them with; and both look sound like they'll be totally different!

  58. They both look GREAT and all of your ideas for ways to style sound killer. And if you don't keep both, I have to say go for the Nude, b/c it just looks like it belongs on you :0)

    ReplyDelete
  59. GOsh, they both look so great on you, I totally understand your predicament! I would go with the nude though, it's a much more girlie romantic choice:)
