The type of fabric is usually listed but the nuances are hard to interpret.

Yes, not all silks, wools, cashmeres, cottons, even synthetics & blends are created equal :D

Not a huge selection here, but I just got this: http://www.bloomingdales.com/timedevents/index.ognc?cm_mmc=EML-_-Promo-_-Promo_051512_FlashSale-_-mainshopevent&EMAIL_ID=241465724

I think the basic problem with that black Grecian dress is that it is too big. They didn't have a 10 and i ordered a 12, more expensive lines often run smaller. I think it's bulking on top, making me look larger. But that's not the fault of how it looks online...

Unfortunately it looks fabulous from the back, a very ass-friendly dress. :D

Maybe they have the dress at another store. BTW, I just checked Saks, they have a 10 now.

:rofl: Who needs a personal shopper when I have you?

I want to see what the Anthro dress looks like, should be here any day.

:lol: My daughter keeps telling me I should write a fashion blog. What real Jersey women wear :lol:! I'm considering it.

You should go to the Saks site and put the dress in your shopping bag. I am fairly sure that it takes it out of the system for 48 hours if it's in someone's bag. That way, no one will "steal" it if the Anthro dress is not right.

Pretty. Those are some high heels! I need a platform for that high a heel!

Meanwhile, I am so pissed! I broke my little toe Saturday! You all will never believe how I did it. I jammed my toe into one of my dog' hard rubber toys. It stuck to the floor and my toe went back and I heard cracks. I've broken it before, and it feels the same as it did last time. I think I chipped the knuckle. Of course, this does not stop me from my daily 3 mile walk, I just do it in flip flops. So, now, I have a broken toe and blisters from the flip flop straps. And what's pissing me off - I have a shower to go to this Sunday, and I can't wear any of my fabulous shoes! I am such a putz! :lol:

My Anthro dress has arrived but I haven't tried it on yet. Should be fine since I'd tried the one in the store--the one with a burn.

Oh no, Cruisin, that sucks :( I hope your toe heals quickly.

Well, I've been walking around the living room in the nude Simpson pumps and I'm returning them. They hurt my feet and my heels are slipping out even with the heel grippers (thank goodness I didn't peel off the sticky cover!). So far the python Fergie's are keepers.

Post a photo, please. I don't know if I can find anything in this thread anymore.

Is it possible/worthwhile to have it altered?

She doesn't have to, she can return the larger one, Saks has her correct size now! YAY!

Sorry about your toe, cruisin. :(

This is the dress: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=24576688

mhh, those Jessica Simpsons are very pretty but can you walk in them?

honeyhoney - if your heels are slipping out, you likely have a combination last (narrower heel than ball of your foot). Have you ever tried a narrow width to see if that makes a difference?
