Default Ladies, where do you buy your formal dresses?

You were all so helpful to me the last time I asked a question, so I'm back asking again.

A friend of mine has a daughter that needs to buy a dress for her prom. Naturally I thought it would be pretty much the same as a formal cruise dress.

So, ladies, please tell me - do you order online or buy in person? Either way, where do you shop? BTW my friend lives in the States.

Thanks again!!

Kim

hi! it depends. sometimes im reluctant to buy online becuase you never know what it really looks like or how the sizes run. i usuaully buy mine at nordstroms, nemian marcus and some juniors stores in our mall. nordstroms has a really good juniors selection for girls so i would def try there. also idk no the style your daughters friend has but theres also dress stores in malls such as jessica mcklintok and besty johnson!

Okay for this cruise I have 5 dresses sooo (I love dresses what can I say?)
I got one of them from Windsor, they have really cute dresses for Prom and Homecoming.
I got two from Deb's, it is a store that has so many gorgeous dresses and you can usually catch them on sale for great deals.
I got one on sale from Macy's.
And then my prom type dress I got from www.loralie.com

David's Brial & Prom Girl also have pretty dresses[/url]


ETA: Usually I buy in person, but my loralie dress I did get without trying it on... If you're doing it via Online, try to have atleast a good idea of your measurements/size and figure out their exchange policy before hand!

BCBG is nice

there's a lot of other stores i have in mind but i know they dont have it in the states... so i dont have as many suggestions!

you can get some good deals on Ebay actually. i got my black jessica mcclintock dress for $10!!!
and department stores in the mall...like Sears or JCPenny have REALLY good deals on dresses right after homecoming and prom!! since thats when they want to get rid of the leftover dresses!! i got two at JCP for about $20 each in May.
good luck on finding dresses!
