Abbott's Homecoming Dresses 2015

homecomingblog2015

Homecoming is the best part of the beginning of a school year. You’re back in school with all your friends, football season starts, and the first dance of the year is around the corner. Shopping for a dress is part of all the fun, trying on different styles and picking the perfect one for you. Every school is a little different when it comes to style, some do long dresses, and some do short dresses. Another thing to keep in mind is if your school has a dress code pertaining to formalwear.

Here at Abbott’s we find there is an even balance of schools that do long versus short dresses. Something a little more simple or understated is usually the style girls look for when going long for homecoming. Most parents think spending a little less on a homecoming dress is appropriate, especially if they will be paying for a prom dress in the same year. Girls, going simpler for homecoming may result in getting the prom dress of your dreams!

Short homecoming dresses tend to be a little fancier. Poufy short tulle skirts adorned with heavily beaded tops. These styles normally come at a higher price point, but make for a very fun party dress! Abbott’s loves the Sticks & Stones line from Mori Lee. They have so many different styles to choose from and are always trendy for our girls!

Also remember when shopping for your perfect homecoming dress, some stores may have dresses left from previous proms and homecomings at discounted prices. If you happen to find a long dress you love, don’t forget that hemming it knee length may be a great option! This will give you that short flirty dress you were looking for with a custom flair. Some of our favorite homecoming designers are Mori Lee Sticks & Stones and Faviana New York.

Most of all when heading out shopping HAVE FUN! This is a very exciting time in your life and you deserve to look beautiful!

Perfect Shoe for the Perfect Price

It’s a known fact: Women love shoes! However, when it comes to finding thee shoe, we tend to forget our savvy shopping ways. “Where can I find my wedding shoes? I’ve looked everywhere!” are frequent statements we hear at Abbott’s. Since there are so many different options for wedding shoes, brides tend question where to start. For many brides Pinterest becomes a go to for inspiration. Some turn to the obvious department stores like Nordstrom, Saks, Macy’s, and Dillard’s. Others turn to online options such as Zappos.com and Etsy. The best place to start would be your local bridal shop. Most of the time, bridal shops such as Abbott’s carry various heel heights and styles that will cover most of the styles out there. Not to mention, usually there is an option to dye your shoes any color you could think of! There are so many options out there; you just need to nail down what exactly you are looking for, how much you would like to spend, and where to start your shopping.

Let’s say you are the fancy black tie bride. Your gown WILL be the highlight of the night, and your shoes need to measure up to the rest of the ensemble. Formal brides tend to turn to the high end department stores like Nordstrom or Saks Fifth Avenue for their perfect shoe. Designers like Sarah Jessica Parker, Manolo Blahnik, and Christian Louboutin provide the fashion these brides are looking for. These prices can range anywhere from $350-$1,000+ which reflects in their attention to detail and quality materials.

Most brides may think that those prices are a little high or not in the budget for their big day. When shopping on a budget, starting at your local shop where you found your gown is ideal. When you ordered your gown, did you have a custom measurement done for your hemline? How great would it be if you found the perfect shoe at the time of measuring, knowing when your dress came in the length would be perfect! A popular shoe trend we see here at Abbott’s Bridal, are shoes to match the color of their bridesmaid dresses. What better way than to find your shoes the day you find your dress, and pick your custom shoe color for your special day? Custom shoes! Prices will be dramatically lower starting around $29-$150. Also at Abbott’s, when you purchase a dress with us, the shoe dyeing is completely complimentary.

Here are some popular wedding shoes, showing you can get a very similar style for every budget! Happy shopping!
