Can anyone help me find this dress?

It's the J. Crew cotton interlock cross-back jumper item 92674 from Spring 2008. I love the color (coral? persimmon? orange? or whatever they were calling it that season?) but haven't been able to find it anywhere! Not on eBay, not on the J. Crew Aficionada Great (Weekly) Exchange, not on the J. Crew website, not anywhere....

I really appreciate your tips, leads, offers, suggestions!

On my brain today

This is what I do when I've spent my weekly/monthly/quarterly clothing budget....Polyvore becomes my weapon of choice and I live out my outfit fantasies! It's a little bit of stuff I've got mixed with a little bit of stuff I wish I had...
The above and below sets feature the J. Crew Cotton Interlock cross-back jumper, which I'm pretty sure came out in Spring '08. I was lucky enough to snag the sour lemon (yellow) color on J. Crew's Final Sale back in March. The navy I tracked down on eBay :) What I love about the dress is that it's:
  • Perfect for spring and summertime in Florida.
  • Totally versatile. So far I've worn the navy to dinner at one of my fave restaurants. I also wore it this past week for a boat tour of Ft Lauderdale.
  • The x-back is pretty deep (think mid-back).
  • The fabric is a heavyweight cotton interlock (drapes beautifully).

Redundant much? I'm such a creature of habit :) Happy May Day everyone!
