It is well known that every woman should have an LBD (little black dress) in her wardrobe. Most people agree while others may disagree, but it is quite appropriate that women should have a good dress to use for any occasion. Whether it’s a birthday party, a soiree, a piano recital, or a wedding, every girl has the right to look her best and stand out in her dress. Many argue that having a dress or two is just an unnecessary expense since most dresses are basically expensive. There is no need to panic as there are a lot of ways on how you can have that perfect budget friendly dresses for any occasion.

Recycle – Some girls want to have a new gown for each occasion, me included. The gown used the other month for a friend’s bridal party may not look so appropriate for a friend’s birthday party next week. Girls would want to buy dresses each year. These might sound good, but these moves are totally expensive, especially if you buy it from department stores and boutiques. However, you can definitely cut down expenses by using the same dress again for another event. For one, it’s just a one-time event and your friends will not notice that you used the same gown last month or last year because they’ll be too busy to mingle and socialize with other people. Secondly, the party will only last for a few hours and not for a few days where there is a dire need to really change dresses. Conversely, you can make the gown look different by customizing it. Adding tulle, laces, sequins and beads; cutting its hem short; taking out its cap sleeves; and adding ribbons; are some of the most basic creative moves that you can do to make the dress look different. You can check out online or browse from your favorite fashion magazines to get inspirations in salvaging an old gown. Some ways include cutting a floor-length gown and replace its skirt with knee-length tulle or adding ribbon and beads to boring areas of the gown. Customize your old anyhow you want it and you’ll be wearing a perfect dress without eating into your savings.

An alternative option would be renting a gown which is another way of acquiring a beautiful dress at budget-friendly prices. Rental shops that offer a wide array of dresses for different occasions are apparently growing in number worldwide since people these days are more aware of its benefits.. Obviously, a rental shop can offer more than one or two dresses to choose from, giving you ideas on how you would like to look on the event. Apart from that, bigger number of selections means bigger chances of being able to pick the gown that one may be dreaming about; not to mention that most rental shops may have designer dresses at very cheap rates. 

Another option is to scout the cheap stores.  Whether you are looking for a beautiful dress or casual attire for an upcoming event, visiting these stores is always a good option, although it may not be applicable to all shoppers. First of all, shopping at places like these require enough time, strength, and creativity. One would probably feel lost or out of place shopping in a deluge of sizes and styles, but one would be looking into a long line of dresses and clothes that have minor flaws. So you need to have plenty of time to double check the items that you may pick.  Apart from that, most of these shops sell tons of items from house supplies, decors, clothes, footwear, and to just about anything under the sun. The thing is that you might end up buying more than one dress attracted by the cheap prices on offer. Despite all these, it is worth the celebration when you are able to pick a beautiful piece as most of these shops sell Valentino’s, Wang’s, and many other designer dresses at heavily discounted prices.
