Every teenage girl dreams of her first prom. She imagines who her date will be, what she will wear and how she will look. Every mother knows that everything including the dress, the shoes, the jewelry and the hair have to be perfect. The prom may only be one night, but the memories and the pictures will last a lifetime. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans spent an estimated $4 billion on prom in 2007.
Those type of figures typically excite retailers, but due to the economic recession, many aren’t expecting those kinds of numbers this year but it doesn’t mean that young girls are forgoing the big event. In fact, many American women of all ages are becoming what industry insiders are calling “recessionistas”, meaning they are learning how to shop for what they want at the best prices. Joolwe.com understands that in these harsh economic times money can be tight for some; but we also know how important the prom is to budding young adults. So, we have some jewelry suggestions for those that are shopping for prom on a budget.
The big night is almost here. Most girls have probably picked out their dress, but the accessories are usually the last items that consumers purchase and for good reason. Jewelry has the power to make and/or break an ensemble. So it is important to purchase pieces that compliment the overall theme, not just one aspect of your look. We’ve selected a few items that, depending on your taste, would make gorgeous additions to your prom ensemble without “breaking the bank”. Enjoy.
The important thing about your signature look at prom is to have fun with it. The memories and the images from this magical night will last forever. Whatever your style, always be true to it and shop smart. Remember, just because you are spending on a budget doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
