Help tracking down the dress...

Hi all,


I found a dress with the exact bodice that I want yesterday but could use some help.  It was strapless (although that was not a requirement) and draped/ruched, extremely fitted all the way down past my hips and partway down my thighs.  The 2 issues...it was a trumpet dress, so once that part ended, the rest of the skirt was far too wide for me (lots of crinoline, etc), and it was also way more expensive than I'm looking for.  Does anyone have any ideas/pictures of where I might be able to find a similar bodice but on a dress that only flares out a very slight bit at the very bottom? I am only 5' tall and petite, so I want to keep the dress very slim and sleek.  The draping helps keep it from being boring (I'm not much of a lace/beading/etc person).  Any pictures or recommendations on designers, stores, styles that fit the bill would be great.  Thank you!!!

One more thing to give a better sense of what I'm talking about...  If you ignore the very top of this dress, the rest of the bodice (down through the thighs) is exactly what I'm going for.  Again, it goes out much more from that point on than I can really pull off though...  The link is to Mia Solano 8949.  http://www.miasolano.com/gallerydetails.asp?main_id=185&sname=&cname=Couture&cat_id=27&subcat_id=0

Thanks so much for those ideas!  Do you know who the designer of the last dress is?  Thanks!

Kimk, where are you located? My dress shop is a mori lee and casablanca retailer and their prices are affordable. They're located in Southern Cal.

Just to let you know about imbedding pictures.  When you find a picture you want, right click on it and go to properties.  Copy the web address that comes up when you go to properties.  Then when you are typing your message, there is a little tree icon at the top of your text box.  Click on that and paste the url you copied on the blank.  Click insert and wha-la! (Or however you spell it!)
