It’s Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan! My daughter went to her first homecoming dance at Stoney Creek High School. I thought I’d share a few tips I learned along the way!
Besides dress shopping don’t forget to make your hair and nail appointments. For dress shopping I thought Nordstrom had good prices. My daughter’s dress was around $100. Of course, you could spend a lot more if you have the budget. Another spot is Camille La Vie at Great Lakes Crossing. From what I hear seniors tend more towards long dresses and young girls tend to wear shorter dresses, but of course it may trend differently at your school. Don’t hesitate to try on something you think might not work, as you might be pleasantly surprised. Don’t forget to wear it around the dressing room a bit and make sure it’s comfortable to sit in. Move around and make sure it doesn’t just look good when you are standing straight. No one wants to be tugging at their dress all night. Don’t forget a simple clutch. We found ours at DSW. A long strap is nice for when you want to be hands free. The strap on the one we bought tucked away easily. For shoes don’t go too high. And be prepared to go barefoot in the gym so bringing a nice pair of low socks that just cover the bottom of your feet is a great idea.
Clear your homecoming day and relax and have fun! Hair appointments can take more time than you think so leave plenty of time in your schedule. A stressed and rushed day is no fun! A good choice right in Rochester is Ruby and Clover. Freshly manicured nails are a nice treat for feeling really special too!
Before you know it, it will time to dress up and enjoy Homecoming. Don’t forget to leave time for photographs. You don’t want to forget the special details of the day! You will enjoy the special photographs for years to come! Now you are ready for a memorable high school night! Make Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan your own! Dance and have fun!
