Who: Hannah Saitta, a girl from the Californian desert who often dreams of shopping, her upcoming high school graduation, and her future life in the real world.

Where: The dress is from a charitable store in Palm Springs, California and the purse is from a local antique store in Yucca Valley, California.


How Much: $8 for the dress, $9 for the purse


When I use it: I wear this dress with a combination of stilettos, vending machine rings, lace gloves and an 80s up-do, I used these articles to rock my senior prom.

    I love that tip about not buying what everyone else has. I have to wear what my mom makes me buy, but when my dad takes me shopping, he lets me buy what i want. I usually buy things that have meaning to me and may look odd to other people. I love this outfit!

    “Don’t buy something because everyone else has it. Buy something because no one else has it.”

    My mom’s prom dress was weird, 80′s fashion was so weird. My mom was the Merry-Go-Round type of shopper, where all the populars go. I might actually dress up in an outfit that she still has from that store, I don’t know if she still has her prom dress, maybe, it was midnight blue with big poofy shoulders. That was like, 1990 more like, but still close!

    No wait, maybe that was her homecoming dress….she had me in her belly when it was her prom.
