The school year is winding down and prom is just around the corner. Due to the poor economic conditions, you might think that you'll have to tell your daughter she can't go because you can't afford a dress. However, there are a number of places to find used prom dresses at a fraction of the cost. There are even some places that others don't think to look at. Here are just four unique places to find used prom dresses.
Facebook isn't just a place to connect with your high school friends. There are actually pages on Facebook devoted to local sales. Many of these pages are called yard sales pages and feature everything from trucks to prom dresses. You can even post requests of what you're looking for. As you find used dresses, have your daughter look them over to see if they're something she might want.
Your closet may seem a bit outdated, but grandma's closet might hold a few awesome treasures. Ask your mother if she has any dresses that your daughter might wear to the prom. If your grandmother is still alive, ask her as well. Older fashion is huge right now and that dress in grandma's closet might be so out that it's in.
Websites Devoted to Resale
There are a number of websites devoted to selling used prom dresses. A quick search for used prom dresses will bring up sites like SellMyPromDress.com. The idea of these sites is to connect buyers and sellers. This can be a great way to save hundreds of dollars off your daughter's prom dress.
Last, but not least, sample sales are an excellent place to find used prom dresses. By used, I mean dresses that have been tried on or were displayed on store mannequins. You have to be in the know to find these deals. Signing up with local fashion and sale websites can help you get the jump on the next sale. Do be prepared to fight the crowds to get your daughter the perfect dress though.
