    Thanks! I love the flowiness too – swishiness was one of my absolutely essential criteria. It’s by Anna Schimmel, an Auckland-based designer who’s at the upper end of the NZ price scale but just makes everything so perfectly.

    It’s a shame Astra is the only Maggie stockist in NZ, with only a very small range. I visited Abbey Bridal in Sydney and they had over 200 Maggie dresses on the floor at any one time – it’s incredible!

    Oops, I meant to write “dotted Swiss,” not “Swiss dots.” I kept thinking that something sounded off, but I was tired and feeling fuzzy. Ha!

    You’re welcome. I think we have similar taste! Kitty Chen is a little more expensive than Casablanca, but less expensive than Claire. Her dresses are lovely, but a little harder to find.

    I may be wrong, but I thought you said that you were going to the States in the summer for a business trip..? If so, could you place an order (once you have tried on the dress and know what size you want) with a boutique in the U.S., and have it shipped? (Or with customs and the exchange rate into NZD, will it work out to be the same amt. that the NZ stores are charging?)

    Great taste! I really love them all.  I voted #3 because it makes your waist look teenie tiny and I love the flow of the skirt.  #2 is my second favourite cause I really love the neckline.  All are beautiful though!

    #1 is pretty but it does nothing for you imo. #2 and #3 are both beautiful and look fantastic on you. You really can’t go wrong with either. Between the two, I think #2 shows your figure a little better, but I’m like 51/49% on them so I think both are awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like number two the most and number three second.  I don’t think the high-ish waist on number one is as flattering as the other two.  But they’re all beautiful!  Good luck choosing!

    Yes, I’ve already ordered mine!  It’s supposed to come in any day now…I’m going mad waiting for it! I got mine while visiting family in Texas.

    Ohh..I see. I can understand not wanting him to see your dress! It’s really to hard to work out customs, currency conversion, duties, and international shipping costs…let me know what you decide!

    The third one. It makes you look slim and in good shape. Simple but beautiful!
