    They are so similar, I couldn’t even see any difference except the colour, and white will always be timeless and classic. It looks great! Will you be getting it altered?

    You look gorgeous in your dress. It would be a crime to get rid of that dress.

    @Mimoza:  the photos of these two dresses are completely different in style. the first one of your dress (which is beautiful btw) seems very air brushed and computer generated? like it’s not as natural and realistic as the second one. The second one has a softer warmer more realistic background and is mor einviting in general. The actual dresses are very very similar. So similar that I think it would be silly to let yourself feel any regret, your first dress is lovely and I can’t see anything about the second one that a. looks super different, or b. would make me prefer it over the first.

    Trying on another dress will not make you happy. Focus on accessorizing it instead.

    The two dresses are really alike, however I think the first one is more flattering of the figure.

    I think if you look at it in terms of monetary value – if you buy a new dress, you need to ask ‘am I really buying the dress’, or am I buying the ‘extras’ that I didn’t like about the first dress? Seems like quite expensive ‘extras’.

    Are there any alterations that you could do to your dress, to play to the extras of the second one?

    I say stop the dress hunt! If you don’t look, you won’t know, and you won’t want…

    Style wise I love the ruffles of the first dress. If you love it (you probably do since you bought it) and you feel great in it I say keep the dress you already have. Unless (and this probbaly won’t help) you have fallen in love with the PINK of the 2nd dress.

    I bought a dress, it’s pretty and looks great on me, but even when I was buying it I wasn’t excited…I wasn’t smiling when I was handing over my card to the lady. Deep down I knew I wanted something “more”. Then I tried on a blush dress and I knew that’s it, I want a pink dress. Now that I’ve found my dream dress and it can be done in blush I can’t stop smiling. But, it is quite a hassel to sell my first dress. I feel like I’m only getting scammers trying to “buy” it and I’m at the point where I might just drop it off at a goodwill donation center. The point I’m trying to make, unless there is something about the 1st dress causing negative feelings about it, it’s not worth going through the hassel of getting a second dress. If you love the first one keep it…I think it’s the more wow dress between the two.

    FYI the second dress is available on the Baltimore/Annapolis Craigslist site for $300…. not sure of the size though. I think it is a 10.

    I normally don’t like the the dramatic skirts, but I LOVE yours! I wouldn’t change dresses. Your dress is a 1000 times prettier.

    @Mimoza:  I love your first dress. I too have been having dress regret. And the one I keep thinking about is also a kitty chen dress. It’s kitty chen aria. I tried on the one ur thinking about, ginger. It is a beautiful dress, but I think yours is better. I would not try it on. I think u will make it harder trying to decide. I’ve stuck with my original dress rather than going back and trying on the other one again.
