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?
