Help finding a dress like this...

I bought this dress off Nordstrom.com. I love it on the model, I don't like it in person! Granted it was too big for me, but even bringing it in, I don't think it would look right. But I love the vintage style to it, and I really love the off white color and mix of materials (it's lace and tulle). Any ideas on where I can look for gowns like this? 

I've been browsing lots of sites but I can't find anything like this.

Thanks in advance!

    Have you taken it to a seamstress to have it pinned on you so you can get an idea of how it will look? Just holding it in doesn't really give them same effect.

    This is why most of us encourage brides to make sure you try on dresses before you buy.

    </div><div>Yes, I never would have bought it but they have free shipping and free returns! So I thought I'd take the chance.</div><div>
    </div><div>To the other poster - I haven't taken it to a seamstress yet. I plan to. But I just don't like something else about the dress...I can't really pinpoint what it is. Just isn't jaw dropping to me like it was online!</div>
