With the Homecoming dance approaching on Sept. 30, girls are struggling to find formal dresses that are both fashionable and budget-friendly.
Many students are opting for the affordable dresses at Celebrate, a formal consignment store in downtown Rock Island. Celebrate sells Homecoming, prom, wedding, and special occasion dresses at a discounted price.
Blush Dress Shoppe is a formal wear boutique in downtown Davenport. The store carries a large variety of high-end dresses from notable brands like Sherri Hill, Rachel Allan, and Hannah S.
Special Effects is a pricier option for those who want a “one stop shop” for a dress, shoes, and accessories. The store, located in Moline, also offers tuxedos.
Another special occasion store in the Metro is Little Black Dress. The Moline-based store offers a large range of sizes, from zero to 30.
Hope’s Bridal is a bridal store in the Village of East Davenport that offers a selection of Prom and Homecoming dresses. Hope’s Bridal offers not only mainstream designer brands, but also less well-known brands.
Students scrambling to find unique and trendy Homecoming dresses can find their dream dress at any of these stores.
