If its almost June, itҒs time for the annual how-much-do-teens-spend-to-go-to-proms stories. This year, The Associated Press zeroes in on, natch, Westport. The lucky teen Staples senior Raquel Lucas.
The AP informs readers across the country (and the world): ֓Raquel Lucas is spending a small fortune on her senior prom.
Her dress cost $250; her shoes were $100; and there was $60 for a bottle of Christian Dior’s J’adore, her favorite perfume. A trip to the beauty salon will cost $70, the limo is $50 a person, and it will cost $90 just to get in the door.
ӓLucas, 18, who attends Staples High School in Westport, expects to spend more than $700 by the time the evening is over.
ӒWe’re going all out this year because it’s our last prom,’ said Lucas, who got a part-time job at a clothing store to help pay for the event.
