So I have two and a half weeks until my wedding and I thought I had found the perfect rehearsal dinner dress. It was from jcrew — pink with white polka-dots. Cute and preppy and flirty and just formal enough.
Sadly, it doesn’t quite fit. It fits everywhere in body, but one of my boobs (which is slightly bigger than the other one) does not fit right (it bulges over the top, ugh). And it can’t be altered. Argh! Does anyone have a recommendation for a cute party dress preferably under $200? I am getting down to the wire so all help appreciated! I like cute preppy dresses, no strapless, preferably in a color other than black. I know this is a lot to ask, but any of you fashion-mavens’ help would be SOOOOO appreciated!!!

An 8 or a 10. And I’m short. And big-boobed (that’s why no strapless).

OK wow I will totally admit that I pride myself on my shopping ability but I can’t find a thing. I say grab a friend and hit the stores. There must be something on a sale rack near you that will work!
ps Nordstrom.com had a lot of very lovely things but I wouldn’t classify them as "preppy". Take a look there and see if you can find anything that you might like.
also Jcrew’s website was down when I looked but what about picking up one of their other dresses. They are having a big sale now…

Have you looked at Anthropologie? After a .2 second search, here is the link (some are a bit out of your pricerange…but keep looking!):
Some styles that fit your description are (maybe just do Ctrl+F and search for the words):
Familiar Places Dress
Softshape Dress (LOVE this…and I think one of the bees has it!)
You could also try Bluefly.com (I used the color swatches on the left to narrow the selection down to pink dresses, since that’s the color of your original dress):
I *LOVE* this one: http://www.bluefly.com/YAYA-AFLALO-coral-bird-chiffon-Orsay-necklace-dress/cat60019/210602000/detail.fly
Hope that helps! But I agree that you might want to think about going shopping in person, so you don’t have to deal with returns if your choices don’t fit. Macy’s and Nordstrom are always my go-to places for party dresses.
