I saved up the money and bought it myself. I’ve wanted it for a long time and plus I got 50% off the dress so it was originally £500. People keep telling me I’m stupid and it’s making me feel bad but I worked for this money?

yes. but it won't seem like a lot of money in 5 years time.

Because I said the price of my prom dress I’m showing off now? Who am I going to show off to at the TSR? You’re so sensitive

There's nothing wrong with working your way up and buying things that you like. My prom dress i wore 2 years back, was slightly on the expensive side too, but if it makes you happy, that should be all that matters. Have fun at prom x

Without knowing your personal financial circumstances, it's a rather pointless question. People can think whatever they like about how much you spend on something - it'll likely be based on their own financial situation, so I wouldn't put much weight on it.

Nope. Enjoy prom, you saved up for it yourself. I know someone that spent more than 2,000 £ on a prom dress (in my opinion that's way too far). You could also save it for future occasions where people haven't seen it. It's only "bad" if it came at the serious expense of something else.

Well... this comment is pointless as if the og poster doesn't already know. People act like she's assuming proms gonna be for 10 years or something. Answer the post or don't waste time.

Hello, If that is the dress YOU wanted for prom then 100% go for it. All those people judging can't afford a dress like that don't mind them. The fact that you even saved up AND got the dress on a bargain is commendable and such a nice way to know that you worked hard and deserve it. I don't know why some of the commenters here can't read but ignore people who miss the point. I went to my prom in a cheaper dress 1 year ago but trust me there were plenty of girls rocking dresses even higher than £500. Once the day comes you'll see what I mean. and now you'll have a dress for a once in a lifetime moment of your life and also for any future special occasions what's not to like?

Have fun at prom! It seems that your school is putting a lot of effort to make you and everyone else plan ahead so don't let any negativity take away from your moment x

No. You are not stupid. You wanted the dress for a long time and you decided to invest 270 for your happiness. If the investment is causing you some financial stress, you can always sell the dress!

Don't.
These peoples opinions are as irrelevant as those students acting like they have a say in YOUR life decisions. I would cherrish that dress until the day and start counting down. x

It’s this dress:

(It was a bit more expensive when I bought it because of exchange rates changing everyday! The dress is in AUD. but it’s beaded and I also have a video of a model wearing it where it looks better

You worked hard for it, and its a genuinely nice dress so I don't see the problem. Besides, you can easily sell it afterwards on depop or any other websites.
