The following is only an opinion, and I am only speaking generally, not addressing anyone specific, aside from my mom.
Girls and dresses, I never understood why girls always had to buy a new dress for events such as prom, homecoming, and other formal dances, only to wear them once. Don't get me wrong, I understand to not wear the same dress from homecoming as prom. But I'm speaking generally, girls, especially my mom, always buy new dresses for special occasions. I don't get it, what compels women to go out and spend money on things that they will only wear once.
The materials and the labor required to produce the new dress far outweigh the reason to wear the dress, especially if only worn once. Although, buying a new dress does refuel the economy since a person is willing to put their money back into the economy to keep it fueled, but that's a side point. It's just that the reasons for buying a new dress to wear only once far outweigh the fact that a girl will look nice in it.
For the girls out there, what are your opinions on why other girls buy dresses to wear only once? Don't hate on me for this post. I only do it out of the fact that my blog is random thoughts, and somehow my thoughts lead to this.
