ok, update!

i found a store in the pilsen neighborhood that carries the dress usually but just sold their sample recently. they have ordered a new one but it hasnt shipped yet and she isnt positive when it will arrive. so she said if i want to go try it on somewhere else to just see how it will fit, and i come back to her dress shop, she will not only MATCH the lowest price i can find from another authorized retailer, but she will INCLUDE the alterations in the price of my dress! so far the lowest price ive found from another authorized retailer is $420! woohoo! she said to order it in the ivory with ivory sash will take 6 to 8 weeks.
i must have called at least 20 salons today after her trying to find somewhere that has one i can try on.

eva's bridal out in oak lawn (yes i am seriously driving an hour away from where i live to go try it on) has a sample in stock and i made an appointment to try it on at 1 pm on Saturday, so by Saturday night i should be able to show you some pics!! woooo!

    Wow! What a bargain. I hope you love it just as much when you try it on. Free alterations! That's incredible.

      Just an FYI...i tried on some Jim Hjelm dresses at Eva's Bridal in Oak Lawn and the owner was SOOOO pushy. I was excited going there and on the way home I felt so terrible b/c I couldn't make up my mind. She was trying to get me so desperately to buy a dress but I wasn't ready. She made me feel terrible. So brace yourself. The sales woman there who actually helped me in and out of dresses was wonderful. Just the owner was so pushy it wasn't a great experience. I'm telling you this, just to give you a heads up. It sounds like you know you like this dress so I think you'll be fine. I wasn't sure what I was after at that time and she made me feel even more unsure. Needless to say, I didn't buy from her. Good Luck, not trying to scare you, just giving you a heads up so you are prepared. :)

        actually, there's a dress shop in pilsen that offered to match the lowest price of another authorized dealer when i mentioned that another shop in NY was selling the dress for $420. and she offered to include alterations on the dress for that price too! i def dont wanna drive all the way out to oak lawn for alterations, but if she will beat the low price, include alterations AND get my dress in 6 weeks, i'll do it!
