Desperate to find this in a size 8

I started a thread last night which sadly remained unanswered sad asking for help accessorising a Fenn Wright Manson dress.

I haven't got the dress yet but am keeping my options open because my brothers wedding for which I need the dress is only weeks away and I haven't had much luck yet.

So I've also seen this dress but the size 8 is sold out everywhere.

Next UK do have it but I can't register to buy as I'm in Ireland and Next Ireland don't have the dress.

Please please please can someone find this dress for me in a size 8? I'm getting desperate to get something at this stage and this dress could really fit the bill. I live 1.5 hours away from any decent shops and have a 6 month old so shopping online would be much easier for me.

I magnanimously forgive you all for ignoring last nights thread if anyone please helps me with this one smile Thanks!

Can you order it from the UK site and parcel motel it??

Greengardenpixie Sun 21-Jun-15 23:50:34

Or could you not get someone you know to order it for you? I have browsed online and its the only place where there is an 8 that i can find. You could also try emailing next?

Have you tried ringing Brown Thomas and BT2? I was looking for something that I couldn't find in my size. Brown Thomas in Cork took an order over the phone and posted it to Dublin.

Otherwise, as Silly sausage said, order it from next uk and Parcel Motel it.

Love the dress smile

Thanks for the replies!
Sillysausage2 - the Next UK site forces me to register in order to checkout and in order to do that they require the house number and postal code for the billing address and from that they deduce the address and it says you have to be a UK resident. 'Tis fierce annoying!! Thanks for the suggestion though!

Greengardenpixie-unfortunately I don't really know anyone in the UK well enough to ask them to order something for me. Most of the people I do know I know professionally. I will definitely email Next and thanks so much for looking!

BurnishedSilver - Thanks, am definitely going to do this on the morning! Fingers crossed one of them has an 8 left. It's lovely isn't it! And the stupid thing was I saw it a couple of months ago and thought how lovely it was but reckoned I'd have millions of other lovely dresses to choose from. I was wrong!!!

Brown Thomas in Grafton St and BT2 in blanchardstown definately have Phase Eight. I'm not sure what other branches do. BT2 Dundrum and Grafton St. don't. . I believe that Debenhams in the Ilac Centre are also stocking it now. Fingers crossed..

I haven't tried Next UK but on other sites I've managed to get around the UK billing address thing by paying with PayPal instead.

burnishedsilver Mon 22-Jun-15 00:37:35

Actually, I'm wrong. I vaguely remember I did manage to use Parcel Motel and Next UK by paying with PayPal instead of a credit card. Give it a go.

BT in Limerick do Phase Eight too, if that's any use.

I agree that the Next UK & Ireland sites are very annoying. I've had the same problem with them.

desperatehousewife2 Mon 22-Jun-15 00:41:43

Oooh thanks Burnished, will try! Excuse my ignorance but I'm pretty new to the work of PayPal believe it or not. How would that work, do I just contact customer services and suggest paying by PayPal as a workaround? I use Parcel Motel quite a bit so I'm ok with that part of it!

desperatehousewife2 Mon 22-Jun-15 00:55:57

Thanks DramaAlpaca, will try there too. Yeah it's seriously annoying the way they don't have the same stock and then you can't purchase from the UK site

DramaAlpaca Mon 22-Jun-15 00:59:14

I know! I spotted a stunning dress on the Next UK site recently, then found out I couldn't get it here.

Greenstone Mon 22-Jun-15 10:21:32

I think BTs in Galway have Phase Eight too, so do try ringing them up. Lovely dress by the way.

SaveOurBogBrushes Mon 22-Jun-15 10:46:28,default,pd.html house of fraser has it in an eight if that helps? and they take paypal.

SaveOurBogBrushes Mon 22-Jun-15 10:47:38

There's only one left so be careful;)

desperatehousewife2 Mon 22-Jun-15 11:07:14

Saveourbogbrushes -will you marry me?

I had phoned several stores here in Ireland who all told me this dress had only been sent to flagship stores in the UK and I phoned Next who told me there was nothing I could do about getting it from the UK website so I had given up all hope.

And then I just happened to check in to MN and saw your message and managed to nab the last one!!! HoF definitely didn't show a size 8 last night so their inventory must have updated with returns in the meantime. Thank you so much and to everyone else who helped flowers

DramaAlpaca Mon 22-Jun-15 11:09:30

So glad you've found your dress!

SaveOurBogBrushes Mon 22-Jun-15 11:37:32

Haha no problems, I was HUNTING something down like a madwoman the other day and had an assistant in monsoon hand it to me after looking through the shop for it as a return so thought I'd see if I could pass on the good luck.

Hope it fits and suits yousmile Also please tell me it was you that bought it as it's now out of stock?

SaveOurBogBrushes Mon 22-Jun-15 11:38:01

Oh hah nvm just re-read your message. Awesome.

burnishedsilver Mon 22-Jun-15 12:45:23

Oh well done! They must have had one returned this morning.

desperatehousewife2 Mon 22-Jun-15 12:59:33

I'm really chuffed! Hope it looks ok after all this.

Picachew Mon 22-Jun-15 13:15:03

Brilliant! Hope you love it! smile

desperatehousewife2 Sat 27-Jun-15 16:19:26

Just a quick update - got the dress and LOVE it!! Will be returning the 6 blush other dresses I got and will be sticking with this. Thanks to everyone who helped!

Picachew Sat 27-Jun-15 17:13:11

Yay! Thrilled for you! Enjoy smile
