I'm so very, very excited because my homecoming dress came today!!! I was straightening my hair at around 10:30 when I heard the doorbell ring and I just knew that it was my dress. Man, I cannot tell you how fast I ripped open the package to get to my dress...
It's everything I wanted it to be and even more. It's just as romantic, girly, soft, and feminine as I thought it would be from the pictures online. The color was not exactly the same as the picture online, but I already knew it was going to be different because of the reviews I read. Online the dress is a more peachy color, and in real life it's more of a creamy color. For the oddest reason in the pictures I took the skirt portion looks light pink while the top half appears to look cream. That is certaintly not the case. Both are a creamy color and I have no idea why the dress appears two toned in the pictures!
I am seriously SO excited guys! I think I love the dress even more than when I saw it online... It's perfect for me and fits my style to an exact T. Thank you all so much for encouraging me to get the dress. It was a good investment and something I'll love even for years to come because it is classic and will never go out of style! :)
My homecoming is usually the second Saturday in October, so jeez right around the corner almost! I'm a little stumped on what I should have Matt wear, so maybe you all could help. I feel like just a white shirt next to the dress would make it look dirty because I tried white pearl jewelery on with the dress and it looked strange. Do you think Matt should wear a cream shirt? For Pete's sake, do they even make cream dress shirts?! And what about a tie? What color of tie...? I can dress myself,but dressing a guy is a whole different level I'm unfamiliar with!
Hope everyone is doing great! Tonight I'm watching To Have and Have Not starring Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. The super couple of old Hollywood! I don't know if I ever told you guys, but I'm actually named after Lauren Bacall! It's funny how she's like... my style icon and my parents named me after her! It's like they knew I was going to love vintage things!How weird :)
