Check out places that sell prom dresses. Alot of mall stores carry them. Otherwise, dept stores are her only option at this point. You may be surprised with what you find.

JCrew isn’t the cheapest options, but they have some great dresses and I am sure they would have something in purple.  Often you can get different styles in the same color.   It isn’t the same as dresses in different shades of purple, but your sister might like it.

I think you should definitely hit up a nordstrom or if her color scheme allows White House Black Market- they have TONS of cocktail dresses in the same color pallate (aka black and white)

I looked on Nordstroms just a little bit ago for dresses (for the heck of it) and they have a ton of gorgeous purple dresses!  Try looking online at nordstroms.com, they have a bridal line too that you can order online and I think the shipping is the same as any other retail store (not like a bridal store which can take up to 3 months)

i would recommend going to http://www.shopstyle.com , http://www.bluefly.com , or http://www.modcloth.com and searching by color.  It will narrow down your choices considerably and make it easier to focus on exactly what your sis wants. When she says that she wants them to be in different shades of purple, does she mean that she wants all their dresses to be the exact same one, but just in different shades, or is she okay with completely different dreses?  If it’s the latter, I would recommend those three websites I mentioned.  If it’s the former…uh….I got nothing.   Also, there’s always good ol’ j.crew!

Try Nordstrom, Dillards, and maybe J. Crew? I haven’t ordered anything from J. Crew, so I don’t know what the wait time is.

Wow. Well, I think if you don’t luck out in the next week your sister may have to loosen up the restrictions and go with black, perhaps with purple shawls and purple bouquets or purple shoes. Time is of the essence!

In the meantime, how many bridesmaids do you have? Is anyone crafty enough to sew them? I know it feels like I ALWAYS mention this, but this is what I’d do at this point!

Here’s one: http://www.promgirl.com/shop/dresses/viewitem-PD457911

Here’s another: http://www.promgirl.com/shop/dresses/viewitem-IV477898

I actually REALLY like the second one, if gold is a color she can go with. For $199 it’s not too bad and they have plenty of sizes.

I’ll keep looking though!
