Crazy Kids

Say Yes to the (Homecoming) Dress

The big Homecoming dance is in just a few weeks, so Sabrina, Sophie, and I decided to go dress shopping. After roaming the mall wings for what seemed like days, I plopped down on the fitting room floor and decided to rest while Sabrina tried on some dresses.  I hadn't planned on taking photos, but I grabbed my little purse camera and tried to take some (from the floor, mind you – I was NOT about to stand up) in the very poorly-lit fitting room…

Sophie's job is usually to take out the rejected dresses and bring in some new ones, but this year she decided to have her own fun…

(Since short is in again this year, Sophie's dress would have been entirely too long!)

It looks like girl-style cummerbunds are all the rage… both of the girls loved this pink number…

If you'd care to find out which dress Sabrina chose, don't forget to check back around the 26th! Unless I'm too exhausted to blog about it, that is… I offered to host a pot-luck dinner before the dance, and I'm afraid all those kids might take me up on it!

    I like the pink, but I also like that first blue one with the silver sparklies….I’m a sucker for a blue dress… (in fact, I’m wearing one right now! However, I don’t think satin and silver sparkles would go over well at work – in a library, no less. Booo.)

    Oh they are all lovely, but my fave is the pink one. Looks gorgeous on her. Girls are so much fun. I have 3 grown girls myself and miss those days of shopping for dresses though I am sure at the time it made me crazy. LOL

    Sabrina makes all those dresses look good! My eye goes for the pink, but that may have more to do with having three boys and not getting to see much pink!
    What a cute dress on Sophie!! Did she try on any others?

    i LOVE the second to last one…the fringy ruffle one. she could totally get some rockstar shoes and come supaa flashy jewelry and make it look fabulisicious. the pink one is pretty and really cool but EVERYONE will have that dress… even sabrina could tell you that one! the white and black flower one makes her look supa skinny and marvelous very classy. the last one is also very very very nice if she gets ride of that orange band on her wrist 😛

    Oooh, love them all so she cannot go wrong. I hope she picked the one that makes her feel most beautiful and comfortable.
    From your commentary, it sounds like the pink one. That one and the top blue one are my absolute faves if I were picking for me. LOL

  • Natasha

    Ohh I just love dresses 🙂 I cant wait to see what she picked, I would wear that secod to last one with the tiered ruffles. I may have to do an online search and find that for myself.
    What a funtime the girls had 🙂

    I love the pink one!!! I remember those shopping trips with our daughters. So much fun. I can hardly wait to see which one she picks. Enjoy this time with your girls.
