Dress for less

Hunting for the perfect dress, a grueling, pain-staking and frustrating process it may be, doesn’t matter because that one dress has to be perfect for that one night. Pieces of fabric, sewn together, creating a flawless flow of gown that captures girls’ daydreams — but it’s worn once.

For one night, with one pair of blister-causing heels, the dress is showcased.

Instead of letting that $100-dress collect dust in the back corner of a closet, the girls softball team urges students to donate their used or new prom and Homecoming dresses.

“Prom or Homecoming is usually a one-time event,” Madeline Krumery, varsity softball player, said, “So why not donate the dress instead of letting it sit?”

In order to prepare for their upcoming season, the Wildcats welcome donations of any price range.

“The funding for softball might be reduced,” Jamie Fowle, varsity softball player, said. “Which means we are trying to raise money for our out of town trips.”

The contributions will be re-sold at the very low cost of $30 for any dress.

If the unbelievably frugal deal entices students and their wallets, they can join others in the EHS Commons from 12:30 to 4 p.m., Feb. 9. Cash as well as checks are accepted.

To donate their dresses, students should call 314-761-8921.

To either clean a closet of the cache of dresses or add to a collection, the dress resale is sure to be a homerun.
