The list of needs is endless for the girl who wants to look like J-Lo and the her parents with the the budget of Homer Simpson. The money saving tips below will help you marry the two fabulously .
1. "Think Green-" Why not choose a dress that can be recycled? Who ever said that a teenage girl must wear a dress resembling a brides maid. Don't you realize that bridesmaid's dresses were created to make the bride look great at the expense of her best friends? Yet, year after year, young ladies wear these rejects of couture that often resemble fruits and vegetables! I say, pick a simple but elegant dress that you can accessorize to fit your personality. After all, isn't learning to be who you are what high school is all about anyway? Body Central (www.bodyc.com) and Victoria's Secret (www.victoriassecret.com) both have great ideas ranging from $25 - $100 and best of all you can wear them again!
