I'm trying to find this dress, but not sure of the site that I found it on. I don't want it to come from china! Anybody have any ideas on how to find it? I have searched other bridal sites, but no luck.

I believe it looks to be from the House of Mooshki, 2014 fall collection.
I Googled a description of the dress and after a bit of searching found this screenshot. I put in a link to their site and it looks like the "Charlotte" style to me. The link isn't working on my tablet, so I'll screenshot the page in my next post. Good Luck!

Sorry, you should be fine I think. I have Kapersky installed on mom's laptop and everything opened fine.
Don't know if it was the first or second website that caused you trouble. I copied the info from the second one.

"As Strictly Weddings prepares for the much anticipated United Kingdom launch, we’ve discovered a hidden gem we had to share! For our high style brides with a penchant for vintage glamour, we introduce you to House of Mooshki, an England-based salon offering an exquisite array of bespoke gowns. “Although most will take inspiration from a specific design in our collection, each bride personalizes her dress so that it is truly unique,” says Owner Vikki McCarthy. Tailored with the finest chiffons, silks and satins from around the world, Mooshki dresses are made to measure and finished at the highest standard. In our daily pursuit of the utmost best in bridal fashion, we at Strictly Weddings are both enchanted and refreshed by their take on an elegant yet positively seductive, mid-century style.
Inspired by the old couture houses of Givenchy, Balenciaga, Dior and Chanel, Head Designer Olivia Wright says her designs draw on the 1950’s and early 60’s, an era of revelation and rebellion where young women stepped out of their mother’s shadows. “Hemlines were on the up, and as women’s confidence grew, so did their personal style – something I feel echoes the brides of today,” explains Olivia. One of their most popular looks, the Mooshki tea length dress, offers a classic A-line silhouette that is as sophisticated as it is sexy. But perhaps the most defining feature of their dress collection is the exquisite beauty of the back of their gowns. Whether a plunging backline, a semi-bare style, or a perfectly fitting silk lace overlay, these designs are made to impress at absolutely every angle during your walk down the aisle."

I think it was called Twilight. It looked like a dark purple or blue. It was different. The black would have suited me better as they say black is slimming, but I wanted something different. I hope it looks somewhat good on my body. If not, back it goes!

The dress was beautiful and fit me well. HOWEVER, it wasn't until I tried it on that I remembered that I will be pushing a wheelchair on my upcoming cruise. I can see how easily this long dress (which will have to be altered, if I keep it) could quickly get caught on the wheels of the wheelchair, or trip me up by wrapping around my legs. There's not much time left to decide to keep it or not. I wasn't thinking <sigh>

It would be a shame if you have to send this beautiful dress back. I think in your situation I would plan to wear a flat or very low heel. It would give you more stability when pushing the wheel chair. Good luck and have a wonderful cruise.
