do you suppose i could get the medium and have it taken in? it's on sale but it's still a lot of $ to screw upThey usually only have a subset of their merchandise online. Call a store (any store - doesn't have to be in your area) and see if they can track it down for you in your size.

Yes, Saks is really good at that. There was a sweater I wanted, which was not sold in the store near me (only in the NY store, which I won't go to and pay sales tax, gas costs, tunnel costs, and parking costs - basically add $50 to the cost of the garment). The skew number for the online garment was different from the store skew. The sales person in the Saks, near me, found the skew number, looked up the vendor number and did a companywide search for me. She was unable to locate it, in my size, but she did everything possible to try. I wound up finding it on Piperlime and got it there.

Just got this in an email, Bloomingdales is having a 25% off sale on select dresses. I haven't gone through it yet, but here it is: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/womens/sale/dresses?id=21871&EMAIL_ID=#!fn=DRESS_OCCASION%3DParty%26sortBy%3DOR IGINAL%26productsPerPage%3D96&!qvp=iqvp

whimper It's saying that this dress (http://images.bloomingdales.com/is/image/BLM/products/9/optimized/1112819_fpx.tif?bgc=255,255,255&wid=236&qlt=90,0&layer=comp&op_sharpen=0&resMode=bicub&op_usm=0.7,1.0,0.5,0&fmt=jpeg) is currently unavailable. It could've been my LBD. :(

I posted that too, up two posts. Then I went through it, very limited, but some nice dresses.

:duh: Clearly, I am not fully awake yet! I haven't checked it out, I don't NEED another dress.


But it doesn't hurt to look. :shuffle: :EVILLE:

ETA: OK, I looked. There is nothing whatsoever remotely interesting in my size.

In addition to calling a store and asking for a salesperson to help you, here are a few other tips for tracking down an item:

- Very few articles of clothing are truly exclusive (unless it's private label), so you can often find a different store that might carry the same piece just by doing a search. Sometimes items are described differently by different retailers, so if that fails....

- Go to each major retailer's website and search by manufacturer, or

- Go to discount outlets like yoox.com and bluefly.com and check by manufacturer, or.....

- Go to the manufacturer's website itself. Many of them sell direct as well. (For example, you can pretty much find anything by Lafayette 148 directly on their own web site.)

So, are you suggesting I return mine? :lol: Even scarier than someone buying that dress - someone designed it and thought someone would want to wear it!

http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/187816:yikes: That is so awful they couldn't even bribe a model to wear it -- even the drawing of a model refused to have her full face shown wearing that. :lol: "Embellished by hand, Easton Pearson's exotic printed cotton dress makes a sensational sunshine style. To inject the tribal-inspired trend with a dose of glamour, team this statement piece with a bright cocktail ring and towering wedges." :rolleyes: Since they call it a "sea urchin dress" I'm surprised they didn't design a sea urchin (http://marissamarinescience.synthasite.com/resources/Purple-sea-urchin.jpg) hat to go with it -- to REALLY make a statement. :P

It's like a 50's house coat, but for $1,200.
