Help me find the right sweater (or jacket)

I'm looking for a black, long sleeve cardigan that I can wear over a black lace dress to a semi-formal ("black tie optional," although people's dress tends to run the gamut from party/cocktail to full gowns) work event. I'd like it to be cropped or hit at/above the natural waist so it doesn't ruin the lines of a fit and flare dress. [more inside]

Unique Victorian Bat Wedding Dress - where to start?

I am getting married on Halloween this year and after a few months of trying to find a unique dress for the occasion and kept coming back to one that I love, both for the personal touch (I have always loved bats since my childhood), appropriate for the elaborate-ness I was wanting to go for, and perfect for the vintage Halloween theme I had in mind. Where do I start? Many questions from someone with very little experience in the seamstress / costume industry. The original image that inspires the look is here. More below the fold of what I've found online. [more inside]

Can you help me find this dress, or one like it?

I waited too long to bite the bullet on this dress and now it's out of stock. Any ideas on where else to buy out-of-stock ASOS dresses, or ideas for online stores that are stocking similarly shaped and printed dresses for tall ladies? I'm looking for sleeved, slim cut/tailored, midi or below-the-knee length (but not a maxi), preferably in a dark floral, in a US 16.

Or something related to the way our brains process information? [more inside]
