    Check to see if your base has an Operation Ballgown or a similarly named program to rent free formal attire for events!
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Here's a list of a bunch of long dresses on Amazon for under $40. Not all of these would be appropriate, but many would. Some are $25 or less.

    I actually by chance found a couple ladies on Facebook will to trade dresses because I have the size and type they need and vice versa. And if those don't work I did find two dresses for 25 each. Just got super discouraged yesterday as not only was yesterday a bad day it was an entire bad week. Lots of added stress I am not used to dealing with.

    I found one of my dresses at Ross and the other at a consignment store. They don't have to be expensive!

    I'm sure there are plenty of wives/girlfriends on Facebook groups that would be willing to let you borrow one, too!
