hey all! aren’t you glad it’s not a haul post for once? ;D
so my homecoming week is the week before halloween, aka october 24-29 (29th is the actual dance).
i’m super excited for it and i’m going to go as all out as i can, and plus halloween is the following monday! whoopiee.
but i’m having a really hard time picking out an outfit. i have two ideas in mind and i can’t settle on one or the other.
so it would be awesome if my readers could help me!! :D
outfit number 1:
free people // casual dinner night outfit
i call this the dinner night outfit because i wore a similar outfit (the dress and purse, which i already own) to a fancy japanese restaurant a few weeks ago with my aunt and mom, and it was really comfortable and cute. however, i feel like it’s too fancy for school but too casual for the most important dance of the year, you know?
i would wear it almost the same as the girl on the right, obviously not the same accessories because it’s expensive but maybe with a thin pearl necklace and a bangle of some sort, with black tights and possibly the same shoes? or at least black suede wedges of some sort :)
outfit rundown (all from free people; the model on the left is wearing all of these except the shoes)
dress - floral lace flit and flare dress
necklace - ethiopian double cross necklace
bracelet - engraved river cuff
tail - faux coon bag charm
bag - madame c clutch (they don’t have the same one in the pic online for some reason, hmm!)
outfit number 2:
tibi // girls night out outfit
so this outfit i really like, it’s very simple yet spunky. the only downside is i don’t have this dress at the moment.
i tried on the same brand and similar styled dress [which was pretty but...a little too orange!] when i went to loehmann’s in union square the other day, and i know what size i am and that the dress will fit, but it’s just a matter of if it’s worth buying or not, since i don’t think i would wear it anywhere else besides homecoming. i don’t go to a lot of classy parties (or PARTIES in general) but i dunno.
i would definitely pair this with leopard wedges or pumps, OR nude pumps [not pictured]. nude would help me look taller, but my friends think that nude would be too boring since the jewelry is minimal (3 thin silver bangles.)
nonetheless, i really like this outfit and i think it would work on me.
dress - tibi [i found it being sold for cheaper elsewhere--dont' worry, i wouldn't buy a $500 dress just for homecoming LOL]
wedges - steve madden
bangles - anna beck [i would probably just wear the silver bangles my brother brought for me from when he went to india :D]
now, i know i edited the free people outfit way better than the tibi one but i dunno. i know it sounds like i’m leaning towards the tibi outfit but i’m really stuck between the two.
SO! please vote for which one you like better, and/or leave a comment below! <3
