Before we depart Seattle for Brazil, my wife wants to buy a white, "sparkly" dress, size 16, for her 97 year-old aunt, who will celebrate her birthday later this month.
Is there anyplace in downtown Seattle ideally near light rail where she'd likely find such a dress? We looked at Ross and a mall in Silverdale yesteday, but no luck. Nordstrombut they're not known for sparkly. There are some Latina owned stores that really have the sparkles but I don't know of them in Seattle.
The one in Snohomish is called Hermosa Bridal Boutique. In addition to brides they do quinceanera dresses, so they know their way around a sequin.
Nordstrom is not going to have sparkly dresses in a size Especially the downtown store. You might want to call around to bridal shops and find out about mother of the bride dresses. They would probably have sparkle, be white or silver, and be appropriate for an 97 year old woman. Happy birthday to her!
I would try Macys. They have a large selection of plus size dresses and mother of the bride type items. Nordstroms does have some of the Alex Evening line and it can get quite sparkly but they were remodeling their plus size department a month or so ago and stock was really low.
When are you leaving?
You might consider going online and having it rush shipped directly to the store or your hotel. I would check both Macy's and Nordstrom.
Seattle hotels and places to stay
They will have much more inventory for your unique criteria online. I quickly checked Nordstrom. Nordstrom, in particular, is very accommodating if you are willing to pay speedy delivery. If the dress arrives and doesn't work, just return it.
You could try a bridal shop, but generally they stock a limited selection of sizes, and many items are order to size. Thanks, all, should be a nice birthday party.
