    @glacier_gal:  Get the new one and if the original one comes in the mail, return to the seller. That way you won’t have to stress about not having that dress as an option anymore.

    Something similar happened to me. The post office kept saying they couldn’t find my package adn the tracking information just stopped updating. I left it alone for a few more days. I received my pacakage about a week later than I should have. I would just wait it out a bit more if you have the time. Then think about ordering a new dress if necessary.

    The tracking information that they give is often not updated/accurate, unfortunately. Go to your local PO with the tracking number and see if they can sort it out. If not, order a new dress and take the refund.

    I would wait until today’s mail.  But then if you still don’t have it, get the refund and order the new dress.

    So is the sender the Post Office?  (Not FedEx or UPS?)

    This is so wrong, we pay extra money to “track” packages because they are important.   Don’t these companies have any liability to provide the service that was paid for?!

    I suppose this is why they sell insurance at the Post Office… >:(

    I voted to give ti a week. I have learned to never trust the post office. They are always slow with things, even when I have tracking and it says it’ll be delivered a certain date, it comes a few days after that.

    @glacier_gal:  this dress will not show up. trust me, i just went through this with the post office for a lands end dress (not as expensive as yours I am sure) and its been a month and it has not shown up. They dont know what happened. Lands end replaced it and sent me another one and it got here in 3 days, just fine…

    I suggest buying another dress and getting a refund

    I voted to order a new dress. At least you’ll have a dress if the first dress doesn’t turn up and get a refund.

    If it does turn up, well then… return one of the dresses. 🙂 Sometimes the tracking number doesn’t work. I’ve ordered online with expedited shipping and tracking… well it did eventually turn up, but the tracking never worked.

    Get a new dress, save yourself the worry.

    @glacier_gal:  OMG! WTF??? That definitely deserves a ding in seller rating. If you paid for UPS, you should have gotten UPS.

    @glacier_gal:  Just a bit of info to calm your nerves, USPS never gives detailed tracking info the way FedEx and UPS do. You really only find out that they have the package and that it’s been delived. You don’t find out that it’s in such a city or out for delivery or any of that. So your new dress is probably fine and the old dress will show up eventually.
