School has barely started and the football schedules are out.. yes.. Football is just as important as the first day of school, especially in the south where its possibly a wee bit more important, as evidenced in the TV show "Friday Night Lights."

And with the football season comes Homecoming.. the parade, the pep rally and the all -important Homecoming dance.

The last few years the trends have been short dresses.. with some girls opting for a more long formal gown as well.. Each of us chooses what looks best on us, and what we are more comfortable in.

Are you going in a limo, and want a more elegant experience? Then a long floor length gown should be an consideration. Going with a group of your best girl friends together, and plan on dancing till you drop? A short dress would probably be more comfortable.

Do you want to look and feel like a princess in a pink full ball gown? Are you shy and modest, so prefer straps on your dress to strapless? Then a peek-back dress would be cute. Is your favorite color blue? Does peach flatter your hair coloring? Does green make your eyes sparkle and pop?

There are so many things to consider for this important event.. and you want to make sure you get the most perfect dress to flatter you and suit your personality and be the dress of your dreams.

Most of all, we're sure your parents would appreciate if you saved them a little money and considered vintage. Vintage has style, is unique, incredible fabrics and superior construction.

You are sure to find the perfect dress in vintage way more inexpensive than at a store. And, you can be sure you and your arch enemy will not show up in the most popular seller, same dress from a chain store.

Here is just a small sampling of fabulous vintage gowns available in every style imaginable, perfect for your Homecoming to make you feel absolutely beautiful for that special night!
