I like this dress but honestly when I think october clothing it is overall warmer, not only to wear but in design and colors. The birthstone for october is opal for 90% of birthstone sets. in a few others it is jasper or topaz. so to me that would suggest a more pinkish or amber tone. I also picture things like pumpkins, apples, and harvest, which are all warmer colored items (usually). As beutiful as this dress is, it does not convey October to me. This dress instead conveys the month February to me, or if teken out of the month dress set it seems to express a young innocent love.
