Personal Shopper: Kim's Hall Pass to Style

Kim writes: "Hi Outblush! I was hoping you could help me find something. I saw Hall Pass last weekend and Nicky Whelan's character "Leigh" was wearing the cutest dress in the party scene. Can you help me track it down?! I wear a size S or 4 to 6 and I'd say my budget is around $60ish. Thanks for your help!"

Kim, I'm breaking up with you after this. I spent SO much time trying to find the exact dress that I even went and stalked Nicky Whelan's FB page to ask her (click the link to see our lengthy conversation). Thank goodness she has as much of a life as I do and actually responded to my question. While I did find out that the dress is no longer offered ANYWHERE, Milly did come out with a very similar dress that it is nearly sold out, only comes in a size 0 and cost $316. Sooooooooooo, with that dress out of the question, I found 8 more. And you better like them because I worked ridiculously hard on this. And if you don't like them, then poo on you. (JK, you're allowed to hate.) - Magzilla

PS I did figure out through another FB post from someone else that the Milly dress she wore in the movie was originally long, just like the dress I linked above has a long counterpart. So if you like the dresses shown here but want the length shorter, cut and sew, baby!

1. Catch My I Feather Print Maxi ($29)
2. Aqua Twist V-Neck Maxi ($88)
3. Chevron Racer Back Maxi ($50)
4. Billabong Artest Zip Front Dress ($27)
5. Element Ameri Printed Halter Dress ($30)
6. Zig Zag Dress ($89)
7. Zig Zag Knit Dress ($73)
8. Daytrip Striped Dress ($30)

It's supposed to be linked to my Tumblr account but I think the signature keeps expiring. I fixed the link AGAIN to just pull up my Tumblr (which I never update because I'm too boring) so you can see it. As to why you can't find Ms. Whelan, on facebook...I knows not. I can't even find her now. Curious.
