Sartorial emergency! I accidentally put my wife's new summer dress in the dryer, and it shrunk. (D'oh!) I would like to buy her a replacement, but the online store says that her size/color is out of stock ...
So, I am an idiot who does not know how to read laundry tags. I accept this. But my wife really likes this dress and I feel terrible about having messed it up, and I would like to replace it if I can.
The trouble is that this dress, in her size and preferred color, is listed as out of stock by Boden, the manufacturer. Frantic googling turns up no other sites selling this dress; they all just link back to Boden's site.
I'm wondering if anyone knows any way to circumvent the "all sold out" message on Boden's website. I don't know what this method might be; I know this is a long shot, but it's worth a try, as I feel awful about this. Bribing a Boden employee? Commissioning a knock-off? Back-alley warehouse transactions? I'm open to anything.
Maybe there are brick-and-mortar Boden stores? (I'm in NYC.) I have no idea. Anything, really, will work.
The dress in question is Boden's blue "weekender" dress, size 6-regular. Here's a link to it on Boden's site
Any help or creative ideas are extremely welcome.
