As the Prom Committee's Money Expert, I'm always looking for a bargain! Prom dresses can be expensive, which is exactly why shopping online for discounts is usually a great idea. But recently I discovered something while shopping online that I had to share:
Did you know there are counterfeit sites out there that use the real manufacturer's dress shots to lure you into thinking you're purchasing the same dress for a fraction of the cost? OMG, I had no idea these fake websites existed! There are so many horror stories about girls who have bought dresses from them-the dresses arrive and look nothing like the picture, but there is no way to return the dress or get a refund! That's why I want to encourage all of you to shop at a retailer or online store that is authorized by the designer you're interested in. Before you buy, just check out the "store locator" on the designer's website for a list of trusted, authorized retailers and online stores.
Remember: If a deal seems too good to be true, it actually might be! Never give out your credit card info to a company that doesn't seem legit. Trying to save some money isn't worth getting scammed!
