The verdict is in!! The net-a-porter package was there, too. I felt like a million bucks opening that one! They do a great job w/ packing. So, here's the run down:

1) Balenciaga - Superb!! The hands down winner. And very versatile.
2) Marni - the wrong size, but I think it would have been really beautiful in the correct size...
3) Capucci - not at all what I expected. The color was a bit brighter than I expected. It was also much more voluminous than I expected. It looked nice reined in with a belt, but I think it should stand out on its own, so it will go back...
4) The CN shoes - undecided . There a bit more lavender than the picture shows. They don't really go with the dress as I expected, but I think they'd be stunning w/ a pencil skirt w/ or w/out tights. What do you think?

5) The Choos - I felt extremely gaudy when I put them on...
6) Antik Batiks - just didn't like them. weren't flattering

So, I want to wear my red suede Louboutin Mary Jane stilettos w/ the dress tonight, but they're forecasting rain . Their treated, but I don't know if they'll hold up...

Thanks for your thoughts and ideas. I'm so pleased w/ the Balenciaga dress!!!

curious...very nice choices...congrats...!!
i like all the dresses but agree with helena on the shoes...only sort of like the costume nationals...

question-did the marni dress run bigger or smaller than you thought it would...curious becuase i was thinking of a similar one i saw somewhere recently...thanks

ps-and pls be careful with suede in the rain...really risky...

Thanks, Softgrey! Yep, I've opted to ditch the suede shoes. I'd be really upset w/ myself if I ruined them

The Marni ran larger. I'm surprised b/c I went by the Yoox conversion size in all 3 dresses, but this one seemed like it was two sizes too large I'd say order down (based on my limited experience, of course )

This seemed like a good thread. So does anyone have a question?
