Dueling Stylists: Ashley's College Graduation Dress

Sometimes, more than one editor wants to get their hands on an especially juicy Personal Shopper Request. Usually, the person who gets in their dibs first takes the cake, but this time it. is. ON! Carlota and Mitchy are battling it out to see who can dress Ashley the bestest. Outblush Readers: Determine who wins the styling contest by voting for your favorite look!

Ashley writes: "I think this question might fall under Mitchy or Carlota's jurisdiction, but I'll take all the help I can get. I'm graduating from college in May and need help looking for the perfect frock to wear. I think I'm looking for a tiered dress like the Indigo Bunting Dress from ModCloth. I love the color and shape but HATE the back panel. I'm open to other color options, but I'm a bit pale so I was thinking of sticking with a rich jewel tone. I'm graduating from Michigan State so whatever I find it must coordinate with my emerald green gown."
