    Do it. 

    I’m also terrible with decisions, so I completely understand. 

    But holy WOW that dress looks like it was made for you.

    You don’t sound completly sold on the dress and you don’t want to make such an important purchase based on a time pressured situation. You still have plenty of time to find one! I would keep looking until you find one that you *know* is the right dress.

    Personally, I hate the tulle on the bottom. I think it looks weird the way it comes down from a bunch of different points.

    The dress looks beautiful on you.  Normally, I’d say if you don’t automatically feel like “this is the one” then move on.  There will always be other dresses and you should check out the replica/reproduction boards and see if that is an option for you as well.  

    That being said the dress looks incredible on you. You have an additional option to purchase the dress and sell it later if you change your mind.

    I think the dress is beautiful and looks amazing but if you’re not in love then don’t do it.

    endlessjj :  As lovely as the dress is, I voted to keep looking.  Right now you have a combination of self-described indecisiveness and pressure of the store closing.   The dress is not so unique that you cannot find another dress with similar elements – and not be under pressure to choose.   And, let’s face it, with a figure like you have, you’d look stunning in a thousand dresses.   Find the one that takes your breath away.

    You said you must purchase by tomorrow – I’m assuming the store is closing imminently? What was the original price of the dress, and what is the sale/clearance price? If the actual savings aren’t that great and you aren’t completely sold on it, I’d keep looking. You have a figure that will look great in any dress! 

    Keep in mind at 1 year away, you will have to make a choice soon no matter where you buy your dress, especially if you need to order it.

    I would say buy it. (Haggle price if it’s a store closing) worst case scenario you could re-sell later (granted probably at a loss if it’s second hand) but it is really beautiful and you look amazing in it.

    I personally dislike the illusion panel down your navel, which is way too low cut for my taste. You clearly have an amazing figure and you’re going to look good in everything, though. If you love it, it’s definitely flattering, so you can’t really go wrong.

    Take a decision with this time pressure it’s not good at all. It’s a beautiful dress, looks stunning on you, but I don’t think it’s the right decision. You will find other dresses on the same style that you will maybe love more, and evrn at a better price point. It’s an important decision, and you should take your time. Otherwise the risks of regretting it are quite high, believe me, I’ve been there before…

    endlessjj :  I love the dress, color its very subtle, the tulle godets make the bottom more interesting. but you dont seem convinced, I end up with 3 dresses and still cant say i found the one. I settle with the last one cos it was getting  crazy, so instead of thinking of the huge savings, (like i did the first time). think in what you really want. good luck bee

    endlessjj :  at 80% discounted I think it’s worth buying even if you keep looking. It’s a popular style at the moment and I think you’ll have no trouble selling if it doesn’t work out – and possibly even making a small profit on it if you sell at the usual sample price.
