"PRETTY" GRAD LOOK RE-CREATE

It's almost here..I have babies young men graduating from high school! What's a mama to wear? A couple weeks ago, I asked you all your opinion on one of the 6 Dresses I was deciding between. This Pretty Woman Fav of mine is not the dress, but it will give you a hint which one I chose and saving it for a future post. This Prompt from the The Blended Blog could not be more perfect. Make sure you check Sheila's grad style. 3 of us have kids graduating and I am sure so many of you have friends and family doing the same. For the first time, our schools graduation is outside on the football field so send me all your good weather vibes on June 5th!!
Now, this dress that would sure be perfect for graduations. I showcased it last year on the blog for Pretty Woman's 25th movie anniversary. 
I got this dress at a garage sale a few years back for $2!! 
I looked it up and it retailed for $198!! Right away I knew I'd have to do a 
"Pretty Woman: Re-Create" since it is one of my all time favorite movies. I watched it again recently for like the 10th time simply because she sings Prince in the tub and I was saddened by his death. Such a classic Cinderella story.

Twirl factor is important for any special function!
And of course a beverage to celebrate!!

  2. You look so gorgeous and I cannot wait to see the "real" dress. I cannot believe you have a son old enough to graduate... You look barely old enough to have your own graduation! Hope you're having an excellent week! XO - Kim

  5. I love this look on your for so many reasons!!! Pretty Woman is my mom's favorite movie and because I watched it with her so many times when I was younger, it's now my favorite movie--we can both quote the whole thing haha! And my mom used to have a brown dress with white polka dots that we called her PW dress. This looks so, so good on you and I cannot believe you got it for only $2!!!!! I can't believe someone let that beautiful dress go! Love it, Andrea!!!

  24. I love Pretty Woman! And I was obsessed with that dress! I ended up getting a different colored polka dot dress at the time just because of the movie! Can't believe that was 26 years ago...

    You are indeed a very pretty woman, Andrea! And what a deal you got on the dress!

    Looking forward to seeing the graduation look!

  45. You do Pretty Woman better than Julia. I have always loved her polka dot dress but now that I see yours, hers pales in comparison. Yours is so rich, milk-chocolaty. If I am reading your hint correctly, you chose my fav of your six grad dress possibilities. Can't wait for the reveal.
