New Year's Eve is the best time to fancy things up more than usual. Even if your night dead ends around 2 a.m. at Denny's, your fellow grand slammers will nod knowingly at your fluttering dress as you make your way to the booth. No matter where you started your evening, a late-night, syrup-soaked breakfast is the right call for ringing in the new year. And secretly I love being way over dressed for my environs. Why not? It's very Hilary Swank housing a burger in her Oscar gown.
Luckily for us folks in Pittsburgh, we have Luna Boutique to fulfill all of our fantasies. There is a perfect dress for whoever you want to be. From Nicki Minaj at the VMAs to Betty Draper hosting a house party, Luna has just the ensemble you've been looking for. Fringe, sparkle, lace, velvet sequins (I DID NOT FORGET A COMMA. VELVET SEQUINS ARE REAL LIFE.), cutouts, structure, draping, complicated, simple, maxi, midi. I could have spent days trying everything on at Luna. But this is a sampling of the first four dresses I fell in love with.
Pricing is reasonable (every dress I tried on was less that $450), especially for unique and quality pieces that you'll wear many times. Plus, Luna offers alterations in house. So you don't have to go far to get the perfect fit.
Whatever your plans for this New Year's Eve, treat yourself to a Luna Boutique visit.
