Shopping for prom dresses is a very fun and exciting event until you show up at prom and are wearing the same dress as another girl. It is an unfortunate situation that is becoming less common these days with the rising popularity of vintage dresses. The cookie-cutter “traditional” appearance is fading out as more and more girls purchase one-of-a-kind dresses at vintage boutiques around the country.
Queen of Rags boutique in Louisville has a great selection of dresses from the 1920s to 1980s. You will also find all kinds of accessories and shoes to complete your unique prom look. The prices are affordable for most budgets; I personally found and purchased dresses around $30.00 that are beautiful and would look perfect for prom. Visit them at 1382 Bardstown Road; Mon-Sat 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sun 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.
