Haute Homecoming

Hello Fashionistas!

    I am so excited to finally share with you more of everything that I experienced back in June onset the Homecoming photo shoot (check out my experience below)!

 

    When you look for a dress for a dance, you want more than just a dress that you will wear one time. That's why I love the dresses that Nordstrom has created because each one has meaning; they each tell a story. The three main stories that characterize these gorgeous dresses are Flapper Glam, Hollywood Chic, and Rocker Remix.

Flapper Glam:

    Most of you have probably studied the 1920s countless times or read the Great Gatsby in school. Well let's bring back the 20s this fall for Homecoming! I'm talking tons of sequins and big accessories. Try wearing a headband across your forehead. Then throw in some feathers or fringe and a strand of pearls and you're set! These dresses have such a unique vintage feel. Here's some inspiration...

Remember the dress I got to try on? This was my favorite Flapper Glam one!

    Want to step it up and be a trendsetter at your Homecoming? If so, then Flapper Glam is definitely the way to go. Remember to wear your dress with confidence because the flappers were the most confident women and trensetters of their time. In one of these dresses, you could be your school's own Golden Girl!

 

Hollywood Chic:

    From form-fitting styles to your favorite colors, these are the dresses that you know and love. You'll feel like a star walking the red carpet as you step into your Homecoming in one of these stunner designs.

    I could definitely see myself wearing any of the Hollywood Chic dresses that I saw on set to my own Homecoming. They're classic, bold, and fabulous!

Rocker Remix:

    This storyline pretty much speaks for itself. Give your Homecoming look a little bit of edge this fall! From a fascinator to leather jackets and gloves to a patterned blazer, the models at the shoot were styled so well for this category. Take a look...

    One thing I noticed at the shoot was that a lot of the dresses were styled by adding high dress socks with either heels or oxford-styled shoes. I love this unique twist on a dance look! Will you be daring enough to try it out?

 

XOXO,
