Is it too early to find a Homecoming dress?!

The title says it all folks...we are about 13 weeks into deployment, not even halfway yet, and I am thinking about what I am going to wear for homecoming! 

Why am I already planning so far ahead? Well, I won a giveaway over at No Model Lady and its for a free item at eShakti! If you haven't checked out her blog, you are missing out. She is a Marine wife, mother, and she is hilarious! Plus she dresses super cute, I love seeing what outfits she is wearing.

Okay back to my problem: Is it too early for me to find a homecoming dress? Well, since I won this giveaway I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to pick out "the dress". I have a photographer this time since it will be our last homecoming. I want to make sure I won't look back at these photos and cringe so the dress must be perfect, okay maybe not perfect but dang near close to it! I am at/near my goal size (if only I could get bigger boobs, HA!) so I'm not worried about the dress not fitting if I get it now. I know the weather may be a factor, but that is what they make cardigans for :)

Here are the possibilities:

The Admiralty Blue Dress: I would have it customized to knee-length
Go Red Strapless Dress: I would definitely pair this with a belt, I love the coral color
Her Fifties Colorblock Sundress: I am not too sure that I could keep the cream color clean...but I love the top part!
Contrast Trim Knit Maxi: I think I would get it customized to knee length, I love long dresses but Hubs likes to see my legs LOL
Passementarie Trim Poplin Dress: Perhaps with the deep-v neckline, I love this bright color!

Here is the great thing about eShaki: they offer free customization! That means on certain items you can have the length altered, the sleeve type changed, or even change the neckline!

I guess the best thing for me to do is to "sleep on it" and look at all the dresses tomorrow to see which one I really want!

What do you all think? Am I crazy to think about a Homecoming dress so early?



  1. First of all, it is never too early! I've already bought my daughter's dress, and I'm looking for my own as well!

    Personally I like the second one (red strapless) and the last (Passementarie Trim Poplin Dress). I like dressing my daughter up in Navy themed outfits, but I avoid it for myself just because it seems like everyone does it.

    Whichever one you pick though, they're all lovely!

  2. I vote for number 2 the red strapless! It's never too early to pick the dress. Plus that dress is super cute and can be worn several times.
