We all know the crunch of having to get a homecoming dress that checks all the boxes: looks good, within a budget, and fits us well. So, we decided to help you out by visiting different shops at different price ranges to try and find the perfect dress.

First up, thrift stores!

We visited three different Goodwills — Perry Highway, McKnight, and Cranberry — to find the best dresses.  So whether you’re shopping on a budget or like to help the environment, here’s our take on thrifting for Homecoming.

In conclusion, thrift shopping for a homecoming dress could totally work if you’re willing to put in the time and effort. Goodwill offers some great deals, especially for a dress you’ll only wear one night. You won’t be able to pop into your local thrift shop and be hoco ready in an hour, but with some alterations and some statement accessories, this could totally work!

Whether you choose Goodwill or not, happy dress hunting!
