FNO NYC 2012

My first NYC Fashion's Night Out experience was an accident. Jeffrey and I had gone to dinner in the city, and he asked me if I wanted to go anywhere while we were in the city. I knew a kate spade store was a few blocks away (because I know where every kate spade store is...) and they had sent me an email about a limited edition NYC tote bag that I needed wanted. So we stopped by the store after dinner and my oh my what a party! I was secretly hooked on Fashion's Night Out after that night. 

So the next year I had it on my calendar so that I wouldn't miss it. I read through all of the events listed and one was screaming at me to go. Joss Stone singing at 9 West. Yes, I got to see my favorite singer Joss Stone do a mini concert at the Nine West store. The store was smaller than my tiny Hoboken apartment and I was standing with VIP's who included Nigel Barker, Jay Manual, Paulina Porizkova and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola. It was amazing to hear Joss sing in such a small space and the free appetizers and cocktails didn't disappoint either.

It's FNO time again so I thought I would share some of the events that look interesting to me...

Saks Fifth Avenue is definitely bringing it this year! One of my very favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta, will be at the store at 6pm.  Saks will also have a ponytail bar with Rebecca Minkoff and Glee star Darren Criss will be there to meet and greet. Yes Gleeks... Darren Criss will be at Saks, so go say hello! 

L.K. Bennent has perhaps the most interesting use of a celeb at their FNO event in Columbus Circle... Gordon Ramsey will be riding (and perhaps shouting?) on a double decker bus that will transport shoppers between L.K. Bennent and The London NYC every 30 minutes. Love these crazy Brits!

Victoria's Secret If you are having a hard time convincing your guy to accompany you to FNO just tell him VS will have their models in the house and will be taking photographs with customers. This has to be aimed more at the guys because what woman would ever want their picture taken with one of these freakishly gorgeous women?!

If you need to convince your man further... Dwayne Wade will be signing autographs at Calvin Klein on Madison Ave. and Amare Stoudemire will be at Saks

And what events won't I be at? Scott Desick's Cigar Smoking event at Macy's and any event featuring a Kardashian (I'm looking at you Lord & Taylor).

Just about every store in NYC will have something to offer that night. Free gifts, celebrity appearances, and make up clinics galore! Look to see what your favorite stores will be up to here. Fashion's Night Out NYC is on Thursday, September 6th.

Happy Fashion's Night Out, NYC! Cheers!
