Free Prom Dress Update

For those of you that started following my Frugal Mom Prom Dress Dilemma , I just wanted to report back that my daughter did find a dress at Abby’s Closet in Portland.  It is beautiful.  I will get pictures up for you to see, if she ever stays home long enough to put it on.  Life of teenagers.

I am meeting my friend, Deanna, tomorrow from Recycled Lovelies to help me change it into a strapless and to help find the perfect ribbon to go in the back.

So far this dress has cost her nothing, that’s Bargain Bragging,  so she still has her $100.  I will keep you updated.  Also I have started my short series on teaching your kids the value of money.  This dress and her attitude towards the offer is what sparked the topic.

I will keep you posted and I will also post pictures of her on Prom Night.
