Need opinions, please!

I'm in the planning stages of sewing a custom evening gown for myself and I just recently got my custom dyed silk fabric in the mail. I had originally wanted to go for a deep plum color, but was politely notified in advance that it will be slightly lighter than the swatch I had sent them. I figured, "okay, sure." Results are below:

Shot under daylight

Shot during overcast day

I'm kind of on the fence on whether I like this or if I should send it back for re-dyeing. Part of me finds this shade of purple rather pretty, but then there's that nagging feeling that the color screams "PIMP PURPLE!" A couple of friends kept reassuring me that it looks fine, but I still need more opinions. I don't want to be sporting an evening gown at the opera with the possibility of people jokingly ask if I'm gonna pimp slap some hoes. :P Thoughts.

It's plenty cute, but if you're not in love, don't settle! I you think there's a chance that you'll be less than in love with the finished product, don't risk it.

I think that fabric is pretty and so would any dress made from it. I don't think it screams pimp at all.
