As for me - I like the third one, so tender and feminine. Really perfect for a women-oriented blog. Though all of them are quite nice.

This would not give your website a new look, just different from the one you already have. The look of these templates is not 2009. More like 2000. Well, except for MixxMag, but that’s way too crowded.

I really like the Lunar Eclipse template. It has a red feel to it which is quite the eye catcher.

I totally agree, why take so much care in choosing a great CMS like joomla for your online presence, just to slap a crappy free joomla template on it.
Do yourself a favour a buy a premium template.

Great choice of templates here, congrats.
I’ll check them out in detail.
