LONG *but informative* POST ALERT!
Holding out on buying Prom of the Decade tickets because you think you won't find attire? We've put together a diverse list of places to look that won't break the bank and have large selections. Remember, you can make this event as casual or as extravagant as you prefer! We want you to have fun with it and be mindful that the end result is supporting Downtown Odessa Inc and our revitalization efforts. maid of honor wearings backtracking to 1920
Start by looking in your parent's or friend's closets! So many people keep those bridesmaid and prom dresses around for decades! Get them out and bring them back to life!
Our obvious first choice in purchasing would be to swing by P Pickers - Odessa Mo right in our own downtown! One of their vendors, as you may have seen, has a great selection of dresses on hand (that are currently 50% off)! Or don't forget the Clothes Closet at the outlet mall. Dudes, you may find something there, as well.
For those of you who want to go pre-owned/retro try some of these gems...
**Retro Vixen on 39th Street in KC.
** Mary Margaret's Clothing Store in Lees Summit
**Donna's Dress Shop on 39th Street in KC (New and used, enormous selection)
**ReRuns on Broadway in KC For the Men and the Ladies!
**Vintage Vogue 40 Highway in Independence
Have you ever considered renting?! Check this out..
**KC Costume Company on Raytown Rd in KC
**Rent the Runway
An online shop that sends you multiple sizes in the style you chose. You pay for the one you want and send it back after the event.
For buying new off the rack may we suggest...
Cargo Largo on Noland Rd. in Independence. This time of year they start receiving a large inventory of formal dress ware.
And, lastly we have heard several ladies have found something fun off the sale rack at Dillards if you want to try the mall route.
So, as you can see there are many options when it comes to finding that perfect outfit! We cannot wait to see what you chose!
