Another fashion decision

Hm. I need to ask for your opinions again, people. I shouldn't really mention what I chose out of the skirts last time, in case people get offended... but I went with the orange. Which was doing me a bit of a disservice, going with what I thought was more typically "me" than what I really liked (but that's what happens, isn't it? You go for something you like and can't pull off, it's a waste) but then again, the orange has been popular with everyone who's seen it.

I'm getting this dress and I don't know which colour to go with.

Click the link, have a look at the pictures, tell me what you think. Here, I'll even put a picture of the dress and the colour choices under a cut for the lazy people (but do click the link, you get to see if from different angles and worn different ways).

The colours are black, white and those below (in the listing as well) -

1. pale sakura pink
2. burgundy
3. light blue
4. coffee brown
5. off white/cream
6. soft dusted lotus root red
7. gray
8. olive green
9. pale mint

I think the black would look great but I'm kinda hoping to get a dress that ISN'T black (though, to be fair, I don't think I actually have a black dress I can just wear casually and formally... I have the one I wore to my formal but it's heavy and not so fabulous, just because Princess Di had one, and the other I wore to my year 10 formal and is a elvish/vampire type fantasy, can't just wear around the place... and I don't have a LBD, not that this is a LBD... so it would actually be great in black but, for some reason, I don't want black) and the white would just be too WHITE. I look odd in white, I think it's just because it's so counter intuitive (definitely never wearing a white wedding dress... MAYBE cream but probably red :P)
Pale sakura pink makes me think of zombie skin and I think it would make my skin look weird. Burgundy is too heavy, I think. Light blue is VERY light and bright, think it would wash me out. EVen with the satin underneath, keeping it a light colour. Coffee brown is again, very heavy. Off white/cream looks nice, but I worry about what it'd do with my skin and if it would seem too close to white/wedding. Soft dusted lotus root red, besides being an awesome name, would come out too pink.... worried against my skin. The grey would be very smokey and priestessy, I think. Not too into that. Plus I don't really do grey, especially darker grey. Olive green looks lovely and is my first choice but I'm getting a different green dress and I think two would be a bit much. Pale mint... worried about how it would go with my skin, again.

So tell me what you think. I'll remind you that I am pale as bloody whitewash but I have a lot of freckles on my arms (and everywhere else) and I think my skin comes up more yellowish in undertone than pink. And I've got largely black hair right now (with varying colours - by way of extensions :P) If you like the green best, give me your second choice as well.
