Prom Dress on a Budget from ebay

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

My daughter and I were shopping for a prom dress and they were all above our budget. We don't have any discount or outlet malls near us and can't wait for the dresses to go on sale. My daughter thinks that I'm being too cheap. So, how much should a prom dress cost?


On a budget

Dear On a budget,

There are so many styles and prices that the determining factor for a dress should be within budget. Instead of shopping at the mall, try shopping online.

An Internet auction site such as ebay has many prom dresses from which to choose, ranging in price from a few dollars to hundreds. Prom or evening dresses being auctioned run the gamut from new to vintage. Be sure to read ebay's precautions when purchasing online.
