Missing the Size Mark on this See by Chloe dress

A while back, when Chick Downtown had a retail store in Pittsburgh, I tried on this adorable but too-small See by Chloe dress that I discovered was a size 2. So no wonder it was too small!
The really weird thing was, it kind of almost fit. That *should* have clued me in that I would not need my usual size in this particular dress, once I found it for a reasonable price from Yoox. But it didn't.
My usual size 8 is billowy and the sleeves poof like no other!
Back it goes which is a shame because it is extremely well made. Fully lined, beautifully printed, fine silk. I can't even make it work with a cardigan.
And I am left feeling as particular and picky as Goldilocks!

What a shame, Jess. That print is so pretty. Perhaps if you stalk yoox, a better size will turn up.

This is tragic because the dress is gorgeous. Those colors and that pattern are perfect on you.

Thanks for commenting on my blog :) It is indeed an exciting time! I am planning to wear the Wright dress for part of my engagement photos and am waiting for my order to arrive so I can decide on the other pieces that I've ordered--all dresses though. Anthro makes such beautiful dresses! Your engagement photos are so cute--thanks for sharing! (especially love the chalkboard save the date sign, such a cute touch!)

Aw! I love it and I love it on you. I agree with Carole, maybe it will pop up in a smaller size. It's really a gorgeous print.

Thank you, Carole, Cat, Desert Flower, Brianna, and Little Miss Plump! I hope I find the right size for a good price someday!

Tres Tippy, the Wright will make a darling engagement photo dress! I hope you will share some of the pics with your readers! Thank you for the compliment.
