Fashion Emergency

Seeing the blogging world functions like a family with relatives that adore you and those that loathe you, where better for one to ask for help if not from their dis-functional family?!

FourMe needs fashion help.. I need two items that seem impossible to find or maybe I am just a tad picky :/ See I have the worlds best shopping capital at my disposal yet I can't seem to find what I want in it!

1. I need OTK's (for those who don't know the fashion lingo..Over the knee boots) asap! You might think with boots being a hit this season it is easy to find a pair.. WRONG! See my problem (or blessing) is I have slim thighs so any pair doesn't really hold. I'm looking for something either in a stretchy material or preferably leather but a slim fit.. But not lace ups like the ones below as it will take a century to lace them.. Oh and the more over the knee the better..

2. It is a classic piece that every lady MUST-have yet not any shape would flatter a body as it is in black.. I am in desperate need of a LBD (little black dress).. The ones I have are on the shorter end and I need one of a decent length i.e. knee length with a low neck-line but not too low..
Now ladies and gents ( yes I value men's opinion when it comes to fashion) could you all be fabulous darlings and suggest any pieces that you've come across lately.. and if you are super darlings you'd leave a link as well and make a girl happy.. Just out of curiosity..
Are there any pieces that you cannot find?

Much Appreciated..

p.s. Single: I kept an eye out for those Marc Jacob boots you wanted.. couldn't find them anywhere!
p.p.s. If memory serves me right I heard somewhere that Audrey Hepburn's LBD was auctioned off for near $400,000 or so..

i searched on neiman marcus, although i'm pretty sure you can find many of the in lovely london..

i love this LBD at by donna karen, its conservative with cap sleeves, a sort of boat neck, and a just below the knee pencil skirt,,

http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod90110043&parentId=cat14210750&masterId=cat13590732&index=18&cmCat=cat000000cat000001cat17740747cat000127cat13590732cat14210750

i had a lot of finds for the boots, not sure if you'll be able to find them all,, but since i wasn't sure if you wanted flat or heels i'm including both...

flat and stretchy
http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod86060011&parentId=cat22500737&masterId=cat17850768&index=7&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat13030734cat17850768cat22500737

platform heel, it has a buckle at the thigh which i guess you can tighten...
http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod89590002&parentId=cat22500737&masterId=cat17850768&index=17&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat13030734cat17850768cat22500737

heel, cinched leather with a tie at the thigh (lol ryhmes)
http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod88760005&parentId=cat22500737&masterId=cat17850768&index=19&cmCat=cat000000cat000141cat13030734cat17850768cat22500737
