Girls have to consider many things to find ‘that’ dress -- color, fit, style, and many more. Not to mention the range of prices.
You think you’ve found the perfect dress, but that price tag is not so pretty and definitely not worth the few hours you’ll actually be wearing it. Then there are the dresses that are so cheap you question how long it will stay together before the stitches fall out.
“I had a budget for my dress ‘cause I already knew prom dresses can be too expensive” said Perri Beach (‘15) “One day, I was online and fell in love with a dress. I checked the price and it was $1200! Like what?! No. Even if that was in my budget I wouldn’t pay that much. That’s crazy.”
So for the future prom goers, here are some wise words of advice to find that perfect dress -- know what you want, but also be open to new styles and ideas. You have to be picky. There are too many options for you to be unsure. At the same time, you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone. Can’t knock it till you try it (on)! if you’re struggling, know you’re not alone!
