My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I've been searching for the perfect outfit. I fell completely in love with this Alice + Olivia dress that you've actually featured on your site before. The part I didn't love? The price tag and the fact that it's sold out everywhere I look! If you could find me something similar at a better price I would be thrilled! Thanks! My dress size is usually an 8 or 10 (I'm bigger on top) and the very top of my budget is $200. Can't wait to see what's out there! Vanessa M."
