I found my dream dress, BUT...

but now I can't find it anywhere! I tried on a dress today and loved it. The very bitchy sales lady finally wrote the designer and number on a card for me, but I can not find it anywhere! Please help. It is supposedly by Allure, style number 264. Most of the Allure dresses have a 4 digit number, so I tried putting an 8 in front of the 264 but that is not the dress.  Please help me find a picture of my dream dress. I need to find another bridal store that carries it because I refuse to give my $$$ to the bitchy store I was at today.

Combes2Be,


I could call and ask someone else at the store to get the correct information for you as the sales lady wrote down the wrong information. As a planner this may get you the information you are looking for...

I would go back/ call back etc. until you find out- even if you have to act like you will buy it from then- I tried on my dress a bunch. Look at the tags- there catalog, etc.  Then once you have the info call everywhere to see who has it for cheaper, better customer service, etc.  I did this and saved a couple hundred on my dress and have had a good experience so far. 


- HMM :)

Yes I called them back a little while ago. They say that it is a limited line style so that is why the numbers are differnt and that I can not find a picture. I also called another salon that I have been to and they are checking into it also. Actually, they just called me back and they too are haveing trouble finding it but they are going to do some more research and call me back on monday. Cross your fingers for me. I also hope another salon can get me a better price because the dress is WAY more than I wanted to spend.

You could attempt to contact the designer to see which styles that store carries.  They will have a list of the styles that have been sent to that store, and they maybe be able to help you narrow it down.


GOOD LUCK!

whats the dress look like??? is it this season?? Cause I saw that a few of the Spring 2006 dresses were 3 digit numbers...and it might be possible the dress shop lied to you so you couldn't find it anywhere else...go back, pretend to try it on...and take down the info and snap a picture with your phone...then post it i'm sure one of us can find it then.

I have worked in bridal for almost 4 years and from my own experience dealing with other stores...


1. Stores will give you their "store style number" not the designer style number, because they hope to keep you from shopping else where.


2. Stores will intentionally give you fake numbers.


3. Stores will tell you that the dress is exclusive to them and you will not be able to find it any where, when often that is a lie.


4. Stores will take out takes of dresses and try to sell them as a higher end designer.


My suggestions would be to go back to the store and try to have a friend take a picture of you in the dress (if they will not let you do it and they let you get dressed yourself take a picture of it in the dressing room behind curtains), look at the tag on the inside of the dress for the designer and possibly a style number printed or written on the inside of the tag. If you get a picture send it to me and I may be able to help you out.

This happened to me... had a biitchy store sales lady, asked for the maggie sottero number b/c I loved the dress and she wrote it all down WRONG.  I went to the maggie website and found it, went to a different, FRIENDLIER store and the lady told me to come back in 3 weeks to catch the maggie sottero trunk show to get an additional 20% off.  I did, but they didn't have this exact dress there so they just ordered it for me.


BTW - I get to pick it up at lunch today.  YIPEE!  (I was too sunburn to pick it up yesterday...that's how sunburn I am!!)
