I actually got my prom dress from a charity shop
I think it was 100% silk or something, really great dress, got it for £25 (They were gonna sell it for like £90, but I was volunteering there on weekends, and my boss loved me )
Not sure why you got negged for this I got mine from a charity shop too, about £20 I think. I never actually went to the prom in the end, so thank goodness I got it cheap
I did volunteer work in a charity shop before, and while I never found anything for myself, there were some amazing baby clothes that I got for my little cousin. A brand new GORGEOUS Ralph Lauren dress for her for €2... my god. I can't imagine that people actually throw stuff like that away when it's not even worn.
The women who worked there said that it happened quite a bit regularly before the recession hit and a lot of people obviously became much more careful with their money. I don't really shop in charity shops though, to be honest, just for me I don't like rooting, because I work in retail part-time and I don't enjoy shopping as much anymore.
