okay I have tried on Abilene, and I am 90% sure I will choose that for my dress. I find it sooo much more romantic and unique than maura. Maura is simpler. abilene felt like a DREAM.Thing I loved most about Maura is the balance of the bigger flower belt. But I found it to be a bit more of a typical lace,  A-Line dress with gorgeous trimming and layering. So…I say if you want something a bit simpler and yet soo elegent go for Maura…if you want the big bow in the back (which i LOVE) and all those fun soft flowers go for Abilene. Top of my dress looks off because it was the Abilene Rosa I originally tried, but the strapts dont suit me. If you like the deeper sweetheart get the Rosa, and get them to take off the straps. It is a hundred more the the Rosa. I found the Abilne in Toronto for $1780 I think.

I couldn’t get Abilene out of my head either so I got it! I’m going to have the neckline changed to a sweetheart and the flower at the waist removed. So I say get the Abilene! πŸ™‚

@LouLou513: haha you are like me! though now im second guessing…I showed it to my good friend…she said it isnt her favorite….I know it’s a dress I will wear but i cant help second guessing!! I am now looking at Raeleigh. and I love the bow on Desia (but not enough craziness to it!). I’m jealous that you made your decision haha. AHHHHHH If you have any tips on how you decided, do let me know.

I really am glad I was able to help you! Please update me when you try on the Abilene…tell me if you felt as marvelous!

@LouLou513: hahah I see what you mean about Desia!

oh man, I am running out of time too! I didn’t think it was going to take this long at all. I guess I was hoping I would find theeeee dress after a couple of shops! and I know EXACTLY what you mean about top/bottom mixing!! I have thought of that sooo muchhh. That is the reason why I haven’t gone with Abilene as of yet. I am in love with it but I was hoping for something like THAT in drop waist (that cut is the most flattering on me since I am so top heavy and no hips! It balances me out and makes me look thinner πŸ˜› )

Well if you tried on 10 before and it was fine…I am thinking this one will be too! plus I am SURE you will love it just by the first glance. lol. I am suuure you have nothing to worry about!! πŸ™‚

sigh…friends are annoying. Good of you not to doubt yourself after that comment. I will be stronger!!!

@LouLou513:

 

omg hon, you look absoloutly STUNNING! This dress looks breathtaking on your body. You have the perfect body shape for an A-Line! Wow…i love it soo much I cant stop looking!! hahaha. I would say complain and try to get the $300 back…theyre cheaters and liers and they pushed you into a bad sale. I say go with the new store… you will have to deal with them for alterations etc. and it seems as though they are better run and you are more comfertable with them. I’m worried that you will buy it at the older store, and then lose out on a whole $2000 if they screw up.

 

anyways…. I LOVE THIS DRESSSSSS ON YOUUUU!!!!! Laughing

You cried!! hehe. I am SO happy for you!!

P.S. I ended up going with a dres almost exactly the same (without the belt) but it is a drop waist which is exactly what I wanted.
