There might be something similar on Dress911  I’m pretty sure that’s what its called, its like the Canadian version of Modcloth. Way less selection but cheap shipping and no duty!

I also really like Ruche. They have really great shipping and I’ve never had to pay duties on their stuff.

I ordered my prom dress from Unique Vintage and it shipped quickly and without duties (: It’s actually pretty uncommon (at least in my experience and my family/friends’ experiences) to have to pay duties, so if you really love the dress and can’t find it somewhere else then you should get it! 😉 Plus, that dress is only $96.. I’d be extremely surprised if you had to pay duties/taxes on it! Just make sure it ships through USPS/Canada Post to decrease the chance of having to pay duties.

@Zenostar:  Oh yeah, I see where you’re coming from then. Ordering four of them will definitely be a lot more noticeable at the border 😉

I guess other than Dress911, the only other thing I can suggest is going to a bridal shop with a photo of that dress and try to find something similar. It’s annoying, but most online shops/clothing websites are based in the States 🙁 I can’t think of a Canadian site (besides Dress911) that I can recommend that would have something like the dress you posted.

Can you have them shipped to a package service in the nearest large US city? ?Watertown, N. Y then go pick them up there?

This site has the  dress and uses USPS so no brokerage fee (that’s the fee you want to avoid with UPS or Fedex.) There is no duty and the taxes will be the same as you pay in Ontario at the most.
