Supposedly, fall is here. While I’m writing this it’s 79 degrees and sunny, so… maybe? However, I’m told it will eventually start to cool down, and when that time comes, you might find yourself having to dig into the back of the closet or the bottom of your storage bins to find your favorite staples from years past.
…Or, you could shop some of the latest styles in the city and refresh your wardrobe to have your most fashionable fall ever! Pittsburgh’s boutique owners have spent months getting ready to bring you looks that are on trend, in budget and beautifully unique, and now’s the time to browse their collections just in time for that first crisp fall day.
