New Year’s Eve is a celebration of glamour and fashion. A big part of the fun of going out to a party in New Year’ Eve is to wear a wonderful outfit, because it makes us feel as princess for one night.
The fun starts earlier, days before the New Year’s Party, when we starts picturing the kind of outfit we’ll like to wear, and we check out the TV shows and the magazines to see what the fashion gurus are thinking about this year.
For me, as for many people, almost the best part of wearing a fantastic evening outfit in New Year’s Eve is the process of purchase it. Going around the stores hunting for the perfect dress or top is part of the Holidays tradition. After many evening outfit hunting expeditions, I have a list of the best places where you can find the perfect New Year’s dress, and I will share it with you.
Ross: This store is messy, the customer service is terribly bad and you better have all day to find one single item, but at the end, the ordeal of shopping at Ross is worth it the pain. Ross has a section of evening gowns, dresses and outfits, normally at the back of the store. They are organized by sizes, but you better check out all the racks, to don’t miss anything. The styles are for everybody; from shinny old fashion gowns to cute and fashionable cocktail little black dresses. And the prices are unbeatable; you can find a dress from 15.00 dollars that will cost much more in another store. Another advantage of buy evening dresses at Ross is that they have it displayed all year around, and many times they go on sale, so you can plan ahead and buy your New Year’s outfit when you see the one you like. So, be patient, and give Ross a try.
Kohl’s: This store is much more organized and clean than Ross, although the customer service is equally inexistent. They sell clothes from good designers, as Vera Yang, who has very cute evening outfits for New Year’s Eve parties. The best of Kohl’s are the accessories; you can buy little party purses or scarves for little money. The clothes are a little more expensive that in Ross, but the quality is also a little higher.
Macy’s: The good thing about Macy’s is the variety of evening clothes that display in the season, and the prices are not high. But you are in risk of go to a New Year’s Party and find three or four ladies with your same dress, because they focus in a couple of styles. The prices are not bad, and the accessories are the best part of shopping here.
Goodwill: Okay, don’t scream in horror. I found very cute evening dresses in Goodwill; it doesn’t hurt to check it out. Go to a Good will or resale shop sited in an expensive neighborhood of your town. Rich people buy new clothes all the time, and they donate them in a perfect shape. Go hunting, and don’t forget to do it just after New Year’s, when some people discard their dresses used only one time. Find something simple, as a quality little black dress, for around 10.00 dollars, and spend more money accessorizing.
I hope I gave you some ideas in where to find your perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve. Enjoy it.
