    It is the same dress!! I remember it being an Essence of Australia and i loved that designer. I don't have any pictures of that one because of the don't buy no pictures thing. I can tell you it's a gorgoreous dress though, really light and airy. My hesitation was with the straps, they are jeweled and were pretty itchy for just the few minutes I had it on but that's also because they were really long and loose on me.
    I wish I could take you to NC so you could try it on, it's really such a lovely dress!

      I don't recommend buying online when you haven't tried on and the reason I say that is the dress or style of dress that I "thought" I would look good on me were terrible! I ended up getting something that was not at all what I had in mind. Shopping by pictures and actually trying them on were two totally different things for me. However, I would say that if you know what style to stay away from and what looks good then that would minimize your chances of getting something and not liking it.
      That dress is gorgeous though....very tempting. I guess if its returnable and you can't resist then you have nothing to lose.

        I bought my dress without trying it on. I saw it online and just knew that I had to have it. I did try on a whole bunch of dresses first though and knew the style that I wanted before I placed the order.

        My dress isn't in yet, so I can't tell you how it turned out! I'll let you know if I still love it when it gets here.

        The store that I bought it from gave me a great deal though - They said that if I order it and I hate it when it comes in they will let me purchase another dress from the store. I know this isn't a very common policy but you could call around and see if anyone is willing to do this for you.

        Good luck! I say go for it!

          I love the dress. I say buy it and if it doesn't fit you can always sell it. I am sure one of the brides on this site would buy it if didn't fit. I love the way it hangs...BTW I can't wear Maggies either. I really like them but they don't look good on me.

            Ok so I found a store in Palm Springs (about 3 hours away) that has the dress and another one that I love! I wish I could leave work right now any drive out there and put it on. I am a very instant gratification person

              Congrats on finding the dress! I guess it doesn't matter know, but I was going to ask what the return policy is. If it is a no hassel policy, just buy the dress and if you don't love it, return it.

              I know the dress I was in love with for months ended up looking so blah on me, and I ended up getting a dress that I was not in love with in the pics, but it looked fabulous on me!
