Green proms are possible

Most prom dresses are costly and worn once.

I am not promoting green dresses as in the color green, but new-for-you and affordable dresses that are recycled from a former owner. The guys get to rent a tux. So why not the girls?

The clever writers at Grist have done it again. Click here to read their great Paul Simon rewrite, "Fifty Ways to Share your Sweater."

There are always local consignment shops where you might get lucky. Or check out Rent the Runway and Lending Luxury. You can even get designer purses from Bag Borrow or Steal.

You can trade clothing at Rehash or  SwapStyle. Try out thredUP for kids clothing.
