Heelllooo everyone!

I'm so very, very excited because my homecoming dress came today!!! I was straightening my hair at around 10:30 when I heard the doorbell ring and I just knew that it was my dress. Man, I cannot tell you how fast I ripped open the package to get to my dress...

It's everything I wanted it to be and even more. It's just as romantic, girly, soft, and feminine as I thought it would be from the pictures online. The color was not exactly the same as the picture online, but I already knew it was going to be different because of the reviews I read. Online the dress is a more peachy color, and in real life it's more of a creamy color. For the oddest reason in the pictures I took the skirt portion looks light pink while the top half appears to look cream. That is certaintly not the case. Both are a creamy color and I have no idea why the dress appears two toned in the pictures!

I am seriously SO excited guys! I think I love the dress even more than when I saw it online... It's perfect for me and fits my style to an exact T. Thank you all so much for encouraging me to get the dress. It was a good investment and something I'll love even for years to come because it is classic and will never go out of style! :)

My homecoming is usually the second Saturday in October, so jeez right around the corner almost! I'm a little stumped on what I should have Matt wear, so maybe you all could help. I feel like just a white shirt next to the dress would make it look dirty because I tried white pearl jewelery on with the dress and it looked strange. Do you think Matt should wear a cream shirt? For Pete's sake, do they even make cream dress shirts?! And what about a tie? What color of tie...? I can dress myself,but dressing a guy is a whole different level I'm unfamiliar with!

Hope everyone is doing great! Tonight I'm watching To Have and Have Not starring Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. The super couple of old Hollywood! I don't know if I ever told you guys, but I'm actually named after Lauren Bacall! It's funny how she's like... my style icon and my parents named me after her! It's like they knew I was going to love vintage things!How weird :)

P.S. TO ALL ANONYMOUS READERS: I am just highly curious and want to do a little test to see how many people are actually reading my blog. To ANYONE who I have given out my blog address to (or even if I haven't and you found it some other way) and are reading this RIGHT now, please leave a comment! Friends, family, acquaintances, everyone! I just am curious to see who is actually reading my blog because I've given the address out to so many people! Not sure how to leave a comment? It's easy! At the end of the post there's a little button that says "(blank) lovely comments." Just click on that and leave your name and perhaps a little note! I'd really appreciate it! Thanks :)

Last night, I was surfing UndergradFab's blog and she linked you from some award thing. I've been going nuts over how awesome your outfits are! I wish I was as cool as you when I was in high school, lol! I'm in my 3rd yr of college now, and I just this past year started discovering the joys of heels, dresses, skirts, and all things vintage. I know it must feel out of place; high school is the age of endless amounts of people looking like fashion clones, wearing Hollister and A&F all over the place. But you're doin' it up in your awesome clothes, being an individual! =)

I don't have a blog, but I loooove to look at them for daily inspiration. I especially love the blogs where the users never/rarely wear pants (I'm strictly a dress/skirt wearer loll). Anyway, I'm loving your blog! Keep up the great work! =)

Also I wish the thrift stores around my city were as awesome as yours! Hah!

Hello, My name is Megan and I read your blog daily. I found it as one blog leads to another and from Chictopia. It's very cute and I love your outfits! Keep up the good work!

I'm so excited for you...the dress came in just at the right time. I Love It! I can't wait to see it on you. By the way, your name is beautiful. I was named after Jacqueline Kennedy, my mama loved everything about her, so she named me after her. I think our mom's knew us before we were born.
xo, Jacqueline

Whoa love that dress!!!! It's perfect!!!!!! Maybe Matt should wear a cream tie... do they make those? Or would that look too weird? Maybe we can have a creamy-ish white rose in his jacket pocket or something.

Hello! I've just found your blog through the lovely comments you left for my dear friend Reva. You're adorable!
Being an ignorant Brit I have to admit to having no idea what "homecoming" is, but the dress is beautiful and your man should definately get a matching cream shirt to compliment your frock.

I can't wait to see it on you! I bet it looks adorable!!!
How are you going to accessorize it? I think it would look amazing with a fabric head band and a your hair big at the crown and strait- like Pricilla Presley. Just a thought

Hi! I'm Christine and I found your blog when Mary (Undergrad Fab) featured you. I don't have a blog, but I follow you & a couple other blogs through Google Reader. I go to school in Columbus (OSU) so I enjoyed your post about your shopping trip up there. Was it Easton? I lived 5 minutes away from Easton over the summer.

love your homecoming dress & your blog!
