I think if you love it and you feel deep down that it’s the one, it might worth the expense to have it shipped over to try. Can you try on a gown with a similar silhouette in the meantime, to be sure you will actually like it on you?

Though you DO have plenty of time to wait on the trunk show. Can your mom just visit again by then?

My suggestion is to wait for the trunk show since you have the time.  I bought my Jim Hjelm at a trunk show, too.  P.S. That dress is beautiful!

I would wait…you have plenty of time and none of the other dresses you are considering are old styles, so they aren’t going anywhere.  If you are anxious to try it on sooner, spend the 100 dollars.  You aren’t looking at inexpensive dresses, so 100$ in the scheme of things is nothing- plus if you buy the dress they don’t make you pay usually.

I tried on that dress (in your last post), too.  I loved the fabric, but it wasn’t for me.

P.S.  I was able to save about 20% when I got my dress at the trunk show.  Definitely worth the wait!!!

Perhaps you don’t like those other ones as much because you’re set on that last one. I would suggest trying it on somehow because as we all know, dresses look much different on then hanging on the rack or on a model. If you try it on and love it then awesome. Maybe you might try it on and decide the one of the other ones was much better.

Totally agree with Lindsay05.  First off, you’ve got time, so don’t worry too much about timing!
