Just back from dress shopping with my 13 year old for her “graduation” outfit thus I thought it timely to share some Semi-Formal, Prom, Grad Fashion Tips. Check out these cost-saving tips…

Yes, I do look at price. Not being cheap but she will grow out of this dress by next season. Do I want to invest a fortune in a grad dress? No thanks. Visa Canada recently released a survey showing thrifty Canadians spend 26% less than Americans on Prom (so I’m not alone in my prom planning philosophies).
I also look at functionality and fashion. Can she dress it up or dress it down? Can she wear it again? (we do have a few weddings coming up).
