Prom is approaching faster than ever, which means students are rushing to find their perfect dress or suit. The first step is to pick a store you want to shop, and even then, you never know what you’re going to find or how it will look on you.

¨My mom and I went to Z Couture in Austin to shop for my dress,¨ senior Sara Ferguson said. ¨A lot of people I know go there, especially because they have Sherri Hill. They have a lot really pretty dresses, so it was hard to pick one but I narrowed it down to one I really love.¨

Senior Carly Hall found her dress at the Dress Shop at Lakeline Mall in Austin.

¨The store I went to in Lakeline had a lot of Quinceanera and wedding dresses, so it was a little bit hard,¨ Hall said. ¨I still managed to find one, although they had to order it, so I´m waiting for it to arrive and get it altered.¨

Even though there are a number of stores nearby, many girls opt for convenience by ordering their dresses online. Promgirl, Simply Dresses, and RaeLynn’s Boutique just to name a few.

¨I found about 3 dresses from Promgirl, so I still need to pick which one I want,¨ senior Kayla Appleton said. ¨I ordered my dress from there last year, so I´m not worried. I really like Promgirl because they offer free alterations if your dress doesn’t work for your body.¨
