How to show purchases that were made on the last day of the month using SQL query.

I am trying to display all purchases made on the last day of the month in a calendar year. I know how to show purchases made on the 1st of every month but not the other way around. Here is my query for displaying all purchases made during the first of the month, anyone know how to show the last day of the month?

SELECT prod_id,
         purchase_id,
         purchase_date
FROM purchase_details
WHERE DAY(order_date) = 1

not a clever method,
but you can have a look..
select DAYFIELD
, dateadd(d,-1,dateadd(m,1,convert(datetime,cast(year(DAYFIELD)as varchar)+'/'+ cast(month(DAYFIELD) as varchar) + '/01')))
, dateadd(m,1,convert(datetime,cast(year(DAYFIELD)as varchar)+'/'+ cast(month(DAYFIELD) as varchar) + '/01')) 
from TABLE1 
where DAYFIELD 
between dateadd(d,-1,dateadd(m,1,convert(datetime,cast(year(DAYFIELD)as varchar)+'/'+ cast(month(DAYFIELD) as varchar) + '/01')))
and dateadd(m,1,convert(datetime,cast(year(DAYFIELD)as varchar)+'/'+ cast(month(DAYFIELD) as varchar) + '/01')) 
order by DAYFIELD
