Homecoming Dress

Homecoming at my school is not a formal affair unless you are a senior girl. One thing that I absolutely love about my school is that all of the girls in the senior class get to be a part of the Homecoming Court.  My school is pretty small so there are only about 25 girls but I love the tradition of participation by all. Because of that, I am on the Homecoming Court and had to look for a dress to wear out on the field during half time. Oddly enough, I will only wear this for the game and change into something more casual and related to the theme of our Homecoming dance that follows. 

I found this dress at nordstroms.com and was obsessed from the minute I laid eyes on it. Sadly, it was out of my size in every color. Fortunately, my mom found it in our local Dillards and we couldn't have been more excited. The price was great, it looks great on, and I can wear it for years to come!

It is navy lace with a boatneck and I love it.
The bottom has lace detailing that extends past the slip in a scalloped design.


The back has a metallic gold zipper with a deepish v neck.


The funny thing about this dress is it works forwards or backwards. I don't think it is necessarily made to but it works!

Now I am having to look for shoes and would love suggestions. Heels won't work on the field (I would sink) so I am thinking formal wedges would be the best bet in a metallic color. Link any shoes you think would work below or any suggestions for hair.

Also don't forget about my Polka Dot Swap!

  2. So cute! I'm a sucker for anything lace and anything navy, so put them together and you've got my perfect dress! I agree that metallic wedges would be really cute to coordinate with the metallic zipper color.
