Fashion’s Night Out Was A Hit!

7 Sep

The global fashion party known as fashion’s night out celebrated its fourth year last night. From Los Angeles to New york to Milan fashionistas, retailers and designers came together for the festivities.  Besides shopping and socializing, crowds were treated to fashion shows, performances and parades.  I celebrated in Los Angeles at the Beverly Center and the “lil Melrose” area of West Hollywood and had an absolute blast! Here are some pictures from the night.

 

 

 

Let’s just start by saying my feet were killing me by the end of the night but it was so worth it.  I also keep getting questions about the dress. I was obsessed with this dress when I saw SJP wearing it on the Elle Jan 2011 coverapparently I wasn’t the only one interested as the dress sold out FAST!  I told my favorite Saks girl to keep an eye out for me and sure enough a dress in my size was found about 6 months later!!!!!!!!!  So that’s the story of the dress….

 

Outfit details:

I had to embrace this white paper wristband, it was my ticket into the nights events, even though it completely clashed with my ensemble.

Draped silk dress, Halston Heritage. Skull box clutch, Alexander McQueen. Patent leather platform pumps, Christian Louboutin. Earrings, Le fashion truck. Bamboo bangles, Gucci. Black faceted jewel cutout cuff, Gojane.

 

Fashion’s Night Out around the globe

 

Until next year………..

Last year I stopped by Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Alexander McQueen on Melrose in LA, then was off to Beverly Hills where the streets were literally shut down( complete with food trucks and a ferris wheel) and stopped by Saks, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. I had the best time and am very excited to do it all over again!   Where will you be on September 6th?
