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.

Help me find an appropriate dress for the mother of the bride!

I am trying to help a relative find a dress for her daughter's wedding, a dress that has very specific parameters. Where do the awesome ladies in their 70's shop for special occasion outfits that are, as my relative puts it, "suitable for someone over the age of 20"? [more inside]

Help me find a bridesmaid's dress!

I'm going to be in my best friend's wedding this fall, and I get to pick my own dress. It needs to be a neutral color (blush/nude/champagne tones are all okay), and either floor length or tea length. I've found two dresses that I really like, but both have small things that take them out of the running. I'd love to find a dress that is similar to either of them. [more inside]

Silly question re: dress shopping in Boston

I live in Boston/Cambridge, late twenties of average height and weight. I usually go dress shopping in the sales rack at Banana or Ann Taylor or, for more casual wear, places like Marshall's or Macy's. But I'm looking to go on a special-occasion shopping trip for a special-occasion dress (the event being a spring wedding in London and the excuse being to reward myself for when/if I lose 10+ straggler lbs.)

How do I shop for a nice dress for someone else online?

How do I shop online for a nice dress that someone else (my wife) will wear without notifying her? Since we started dating in college, and for a couple of years after that while we were doing what we were doing, we were never really making enough money to splurge on nice evening wear and so forth. Now, we're finally pretty financially stable, and this year for Christmas I want to get her a very nice evening gown (and some jewelry, but that's easy) for special events and so forth. The kicker is that I live pretty far away from any sort of store that could help me out with this, and any time I do get to any sort of civilization, I'm with my lovely wife and can't exactly do any surreptitious shopping. That leaves the Internet. [more inside]

Would sell kidney for wedding dress like this one:

This dress is absolutely stunning, but it appears to have gone 'out of print' a few years ago at J.Crew. Does anyone know of a similar one anywhere out in the cosmos? I'm aiming for a size 4, 6 or 8.
