    I wanted to update you all, since you've been so helpful.
    I finagled a 10-hour layover in Newark while I was flying last week, and I managed to pop into the store in Soho. They had the dress in a 44 — not a perfect fit, but certainly good enough to try on a bunch of jackets with it. Interestingly, the white jackets didn't look right. There was a pretty clear winner in the new low-neck biker.

    Thanks, Rider and AHN!
    I sent my mom a photo of the black dress last night, and she said, "it's beautiful, go for it."
    So, I am going to look for a different light (white, light grey, etc.) jacket to wear with it while trying to track down the white dress on sale in a 42. I have found it at full price on Farfetch. But I feel like the black one is staying here, regardless.

    Thanks for the tip on the store, Rider. Good call.

    I just love that Rick dress in both colors. I hope you find the white. Did you call the Rick Owens store? They will be able to track one down if another store has it.
    i wish the white jacket had worked because I think the black and white theme quells the norm but visa versa will be easier and more traditional.

    I ordered the dress in a 42, and I LOVE it.
    I am pretty sure it's the one... But it's black, and I promised my mom I'd not wear all black.

    So, a few thoughts...
    Has anyone seen this elsewhere?

    I think a 40 is going to be cutting it, and since I'm busty, I don't want to be spilling out anywhere. Would love to find it in a 42 or 44 if anyone has any leads...

    Otherwise — any thoughts on a jacket or something to wear with it that isn't black?
    I have a great Ann D jacket (gold and black) that I got in Antwerp that looks amazing, but it may be a bit much for the event...

    Any other ideas?

    Yeah, AHN, from the photos I've seen, I'd say our coloring is very similar.
    Stark white works well; off-whites, not so much.
    But I think your coloring is stronger than mine — mine is a bit soft, so I can't really wear pure or bright colors. That teal that Rick used in Mastodon suits me well, for instance.

    But yeah, the dress is in contention, if I can find something non black to wear it with. It's perfect and I love it.

    Ah I'm sorry to read that the jacket didn't work out. I possibly have similar colouring to you - I can't wear pastels - I look best in stark whites.

    Can you find a good alterations to make the adjustments to the dress? It could be worth it.

    Ooooh this is so exciting!!

    Quick update: I got the jacket in a 40 — I knew it would be too small, but I figured it was worth a try to see if I wanted to track once down in the right size. Beyond the sizing issue, it didn't really suit me. I think the biggest issue is that it's not "milk," it's "vanilla," and it has too much yellow in it for me to wear well next to my face (my coloring is very cool).

    I also picked up the dress in a 44. Honestly, a 42 would probably be a better fit, but I can certainly make it work. And holy cow — the dress feels like wearing a cashmere caftan. It's absurdly soft and nice. So, at this point, I'd say the dress is a definite maybe, if I can find something to wear with it that isn't black. :)

    Will do, and thanks for the help.
    Forward Elyse Walker has the dress in all sizes, though it's still full price... But if the 42 doesn't work, it's nice to have a backup plan. And I'll check Hotoveli. I've lost some weight this year, so I'm unlikely to be a 46, or even a 44, unless it is cut really small through the bust (I'm 30G these days). Also, I know what RONY is, but what is IF?

    Hotoveli has the jacket in 44 and worthwile does as well but in a 46.
    Perhaps IF or RONY has the 42?

    let us know how it goes.

    Thank you, Rider!
    I adore it, too. The bigger question is where can I find the jacket in the right size?
    The link you posted has the dress in a 42, which may work. Most of my Rick stuff is 42, including jackets, but I have things from 38-44, usually depending on the chest...

    When I first read your post last night that Rick Owens dress was my very first thought because I adore the cut and the texture. I secretly wished I had a reason to get it, so I completely concur that its a Great choice and definitely worth trying. I realize its black but with the white jacket it would be even better and elegant.

    Very exciting time in your life, Congrats.
