A few weeks ago there was another milestone event for my family- my youngest Gracie attended her first Homecoming dance at her school. This year she has decided she wants to hang out more with her friends. So what was my shy daughter has turned into a social butterfly.
The homecoming dance is a huge deal at her school besides Prom (that only juniors and seniors can attend) this is the only other dance that her school has. If I haven’t mentioned it before Gracie is the pickiest of the girls. She likes her clothes to be a certain fit and style. Heck, she just started wearing jeans last year. So finding a dress for her homecoming dance was not an easy task. She had gone shopping with her sister when she was visiting her in Greensboro and bought a dress, but I think it was more because she was afraid she wouldn’t find one. We even ordered a few online for her as backups.
But finally, after a trip to Ross, we found the dress of her dreams. Now I know, you probably think you already spent money on other dresses. By while other girls were paying $100 or more on one dress, Gracie got 4 for less than $100. ( And don’t worry she already has plans for the other ones.)
When it came to taking pictures of her in the dress, I looked no further than Odom Farming. While everyone else’s Homecoming dance pictures looked the same, Gracie’s was different. Not only did Allie get in the picture but who else would have pictures with Clementine, the goat?
And of course, everyone knows Cinderella had to pick out the perfect pumpkin to take her to the ball or rather the homecoming dance. Homecoming was an event that Gracie will never forget.
So you can still look like million bucks without spending a million dollars. So tell me what do you think of my girl in her Cinderella Homecoming dance dress?
