    I know the feeling.  It’s like going to a shoe store and asking for a size 7 and the assistant coming out and saying “we have it in a 6” what use is that to someone who takes a 7?

    doesn’t bother me. what does is when i called and asked for a specific dress, they assured me they had it and when i drove over an hour to get there, they didn’t have the dress.

    I called and asked about a dress and was told they have something similar.  I went in, tried a few on, and fell in love with “the dress.”

    So I guess I’m just not picky.  It’s the cut/style of the dress that I love.  I couldn’t care less about the designer.  But that’s how I am whenever I buy anything, so I’m not a good example.

    I hope you find your dress!

    I get annoyed when they say they have the dress, i explain that i am plus size- they assure me the have one i can try on and i get there and they are all oblivious to the call and tell me “They have something similar so i can get an idea”… its like Geesh, i drove 2 hours to try THAT dress on, not the “idea” dress.

    End Rant!

    I think they are just trying to be helpful!

    I know what you mean. I was looking for a particular dress and tried on a few of the “similar” styles but still really wanted to try on that one dress. I haven’t found a place that has it yet but I haven’t given up my search. These similiar styles look good two but are often compromises of the dress you want. They are trying to be helpful so it is good to try similar styles but if that dress is all you want then I would keep searching.
