You scored the perfect date, so let the dress hunting begin. Or maybe it’s in the reverse order? It’s really all about the dress, isn’t it? Prom season is just around the corner, and Overland Park is the perfect shopping destination. With so many options to pick from, we wanted to give you a break-down of the best places to find that perfect dress.

Camille La Vie

Truly a gown store to behold, it could be your one stop shop for all things fancy. They carry hundreds of high-end designer dresses that have quality fabric and details, but without the couture type of price tag that makes your eyes widen as you delicately put the dress back on the rack and carefully step away. They typically range around $120 - $500 and are always getting new styles. You can have some fun here trying things on in their nice dressing rooms as you seek out your perfect look. They also carry shoes, purses and jewelry.


There are so many options at Dillard’s. It is definitely the department store with the most variety and quality. From high end to more affordable, long trains to short skirts, to cut-outs and everything in between. There is a massive area of the store dedicated to dresses, and of course you can head to the glorious shoe section once you’ve made your selection.


Nordstrom is of course upscale fashion. They don’t carry the same volume of options as Camille La Vie or Dillard’s, but you know you will walk away with a luxurious and well-made piece, likely from a name brand designer.
