For those of you keeping track, I did go to Nordstrom to try out dresses, and I thought I wasn't going to get any as they either didn't fit right or just was blah. But then the very last dress I tried, a red silk number, looked rather good on me. I think it does at least... So I got it. I did have to return a handbag I purchased there that I barely used (nordstrom has one of the best return policies, like REI) so I just had to pay the difference.
