    It is a REALLY great dress!  Have you checked to see how much the other pre-owned ones are going for online? 

    It would help to know how much the dress costs originally.  I think on average, I would only pay about 30-40% of the original cost for a pre-owned dress.  Anything more expensive than that, I would probably consider buying it new.

    Ooh, it looks gorgeous on you. I still have a soft spot for Sophia though, I don’t know why, though, because you look radiant in this too… I really think it comes down to how it makes you feel. You can budget a little extra here and there (as a broke college student, I’m great at that, haha) but when it comes down to it, just make sure you’re wearing the dress that’s perfectly you.

    It looks great on you! I agree with lily that Sophia is still AMAZING on you, and it’s my personal favorite. BUT, if you like this one more, then I think it’s beautiful!!! You look REALLY good in it!

    @crebre – I just asked my fiance for his opinion, and he thinks Sophia looks better. Smile

    BUT! You should go with the one that you love. Because your opinion is really the only one that matters.

    But you loved Sophia!

    Everyone’s budget is different of course but to me it only makes sense to buy a used dress when the original is at least $4-5K, and it’s being resold for less than half of that price. If I’m only saving a few hundred dollars I’d rather buy new. Sorry ๐Ÿ™

    I am going against the grain… Again!

    I LOVE the Naja!!!!! I didn’t think a dress would beat Sophia but this one DOES!!!!!!

    I agree that it is more couture and I think it suits your personality better!!!!!

    I prefer the more dramatic sweetheart with the ruching over the bust and I prefer the smaller ruching on the Naja… I just LOVE IT!!!!!!!

    I am not going to touch the budget subject because only you can know whether you can splurge on the dress or not but dress for dress I love the Naja more!

    If you don’t think you love Sophia anymore, then I think you should go for this one. It really is an absolutely amazing dress!!!
