Save or Splurge: Prom
Prom is a major fashion moment for most high school girls. I remember being really excited about shopping for prom dresses. I wanted the perfect dress, but I knew my mom wasn't going to spend a ton of money. My choice first dress was actually a really cheap clearance find, but it sold out in my size before I could get it. This left me with slightly more expensive dresses just to find a good fit. (I also had to struggle to find something other than those bedazzled two-piece horrors that were popular then).
I've never worn that dress again. It's pretty, but my style has certainly evolved so it seems a little silly now. I also never again wore the shoes or even the silly prom jewelry I bought. Prom is a save in hindsight even if it seemed like a splurge then.
Will you or did you save or splurge on your prom?
Floral Print Dress, JC Penny, $149.99
I can't decide if that floral dress is quirky or ugly.
Junior prom I spent $150 for a $600 dress on sale. It was light pink with sequins on the bodice and petals covering the entire skirt. so pretty.
Senior ball I bought a $200 dress from Anthropologie. It was rainbow striped. Sounds kind of crazy but it was actually awesome. But I found this $600 Nicole Miller dress that I absolutely fell in love with. champagne with a burnt orange top. it reminded me of egypt.
An Anthropologie dress for prom? Not only am I jealous, but you were soooo far ahead of where I was on the style curve.
Ditto the Anthropologie comment.
and i looked better last year, and ill look better htis year too. :)
