There were five dresses in the hallway closet still in their garment bags. Two I kept...one that I could possibly wear again (what can I say, I was a prude in high school so that dress is still age appropriate!) and the other held sentimental value since I wore it to Junior Prom - the dance I went to with The Hubs. The third looked a little old, so I put in the give away pile.
The other two, however, I thought looked in good condition, so I started researching the possibility of donating them to an organization that gives prom dresses to girls who can't afford them.
I headed over to Donate My Dress (link found in Better Homes and Garden) and found an organization fairly close by that takes dresses.
The organization is Becca's Closet and they have a high school in Tracy and one in Modesto that will take dresses. Only problem is, they say the dresses need to be from 2005 to present so that they are "current styles". (Ugh! Makes me feel SO OLD!)
Anyways, I looked at the dresses I again and I really don't think they look that out of date!
See for yourself...

|Detail at the top and better idea of color. It's like a shimmer blue/black.|
|Black strapless dress with flower detail. Can't even remember what I wore it to!|
I really hope these are donation worthy! I'd love to make a difference in the life of teenager by giving them a fun dress to wear to Homecoming or a Prom!
What do you think?
Do you think these dresses are donation worthy?
