Whether you're looking one for a gala or your daughter's looking for one for prom, finding an affordable formal dress in Boise is a nearly impossible task!
Rewind back to January 2020 when we were still allowed to have large gathering in crowded venues. The Governor's Ball was quickly approaching and I kept prodding to husband to tell me weather or not we had plans to go. If we were, I needed at least a week's notice so I could rent a formal gown from Rent the Runway and get it delivered on time. He told me we weren't, so I didn't order one. Well, the night before the ball, he accepted an invitation for us from a friend and I stared at him like "what did you just do?!"
I didn't have a formal gown just laying around in the closet that I could pull out and wear, so I had to scramble Saturday morning to come up with something. That lead to an incredibly frustrating THREE hour long trip at Boise Town Square Mall. Just when I was about to give up, I found a dress in the petite's section at Dillard's that fit just right. What wasn't just right? The price tag. I shelled out almost $200 for a dress that I've never worn again.
This DOESN'T have to to happen to you as you prepare for your next gala or holiday party! Dress for Success is holding a formal Dress Sale this Saturday, April 24 at the Capital Christian Center in Meridian from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. All of the dresses are brand new and only cost $25 a piece! Not only is a great opportunity for adult women to easily find formal wear, it's an opportunity for teens to grab an affordable prom dress!
The best part? 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Dress for Success Boise Valley! Their mission is to equip women who've recently completed job training or skills development to re-enter the workforce with the clothes they need to rock a job interview and soar once they land the gig. Many times these women are coming to Dress for Success after overcoming difficult situations domestic violence, incarceration or having to rely on welfare to provide for their families. This is a way to treat yourself while playing it forward to women who are trying to get back on their feet.
