Prom dress emergency...there will be blood.

My daughter ordered the prom dress of her dreams-and two days later we learned it was out of stock. Actually, I learned-haven't told her yet as trying to avoid the ensuing drama and more prom dress shopping. Attempting to find it online, or in another retail location, but no luck. Here's a not-great pic
of the dress. The tag says it's Fiesta, number 46001, Mint-and she needs an x-small.

I have attempted searching the Fiesta Formals website, and that model number brings up a completely different dress. I've googled my little heart out, and nothing. I went back to the store and asked them to call the factory-out of stock their and the owner couldn't help me with the issue re the model number being wrong nor would he ask if they carry it in other stores. There was a language barrier there, so I'm not sure he understood what I was asking.
Her face melted with love, you guys, when she tried the dress on, like when someone first sees their newborn. It's ridiculous, but that's 17 for you. I'm not looking for "tell her to suck it up and deal with disappointment" advice; I'm on that and will do it if I have to (plus, man do I not want to shop anymore). I do have the option of buying the small and getting it altered, but it's already more than I thought we'd be spending so not my first choice.
