Jason and I are getting married in Paris (France, not Texas!) in November. I found *my dress*, made by Demetrios, at a sample store in Chandler, AZ, but it is a size too small (I’m a bit busty, so I need a size 16 so I can alter all but the bust…the one in the store was a 14) and the only thing on the label is an RN number, which I took down, and when I look it up online, it brings up an entirely different dress. The store does not order dresses…what’s on the rack is what you get.
I’ve been looking high and low for the dress…my eyes are strained from looking it up online until 3AM in the morning. I found something so similar that I think it may be in the same collection (linked below), so I’m thinking it was in the 2006 collection.
The one I want has the same style skirt bottom, layered with the flower, except instead of chiffon it is made of lace that I can only describe as "soft Madonna ala 1980s lace". It’s ivory. And the bodice is different: more of a gold threaded bodice.
I actually like the one posted but, again, wrong size!
Any help would be appreciated. I need my sleep!

I think this might actually be from the Fall 05 line (per the person who is selling that dress linked above.)

Okay, no replies. 🙁
Well, I went back to the store and found an additional tag on the inside of the dress. From that I can deduce that it is the following:
Demetrios "Young Sophisticates", Fall 2005 Collection, Style #2688
Still can’t find it anywhere online. So, with that said, I guess I need to ask everyone:
Where can I go to find discontinued dresses? ARe there sites online that specialize in discontinued dresses?
Please let me know. I appreciate all of your responses.

Just by googling the Designer and style number I came up with this site:
I would try that as a first route.
Then of course there is always searching for a used dress via craigslist, ebay, etc.

Thanks, I did find that site, but none of the pictures show up and when you click on the links (particularly the e-mail), it says the links have been removed. Are you seeing photos when you go to that page? I’m only seeing a box with an "x" in it.

have you tried contacting demetrios directly and asking them about the dress?
they might be your best bet on getting this dress. they actually have stores around the country so there may be a few in your area. if you haven’t done so already, call their headquarters in NY 212.967.5222. they might be able to help you track down this dress. after that, i would call some of the demetrios stores and see if they have it in stock or can order it for you.
