UPDATE: All FNO posts are linked in this post. No need to hunt for them now
Hey there ladies. I’m finally up and out of the bed (10am) after a long night out in NYC for Fashion’s Night Out. I have so much to share I don’t even know where to begin! Stick with me though because yall know that I don’t typically do Fashion posts. I’m strictly skin and hair. But last night was special…
For starters, Barbie actually had a complimentary Fashion’s Night Out bus available (along with Volkswagen and H&M) that commuted shoppers around Manhattan. It was soooo cute. I downloaded an app to my phone that allowed me to scan the Barbie bar codes I found around town to be entered to win some of the Barbie Fashion’s available (many of them tre chic!).
I didn’t catch a glimpse of the actual bus though until the end of the evening when I was on my way home. That was a bummer because I really wanted to ride it but the subway was just faster. When I finally did see the bus, it went by so fast that I didn’t get the best pic (better pics further down. Keep reading!):
Because I have so much to share (videos, photos, stories!), I’m going to break the events of Fashion’s Night Out into more than one post (probably 6!) to give you all the night’s details.
The Initial Plan
So, my initial plan for Fashion’s Night Out was a bit sketchy. I was supposed to meet up with a few other bloggers but the rain deterred most of them. The kicker was it wound up NOT raining and the night was BEAUTIFUL. Yes, in all caps. It was warm, humid and the streets of NYC were packed!
What I Wound Up Doing
My mom and I always have a good time together. We usually go to church functions and not much else but last night, she joined me and did Fashion’s Night Out like a couple of kids! I didn’t get pics of us together but I did get pics of us separately:
Places We Visited
There was so much to do with so little time. The events were taking place from 6-11pm and if you know New York, you know that’s not nearly enough time to go from place to place uptown, midtown and downtown. So, before working our way to midtown we started out downtown beginning with Bloomingdales in SoHo:
While at Bloomingdales, I had the pleasure of interviewing an Amika representative hairstylist. I’ll share it in a future post.
After leaving Bloomingdales, we went to QVC’s event (still in SoHo). QVC was live and it was packed up in there! Designers showcased everything that you see on TV including everything from jewelry to handbags to fur coats to beauty items galore (more in the exclusive QVC post – yet to come!).
While in SoHo, I came across some interesting people and window displays (see a future post where I’ll share images of all the interesting window displays I came across. For now, here’s a pic of a group of models who were showcasing outfits for Eminent Fash:

Moving On Up
When it was time to head uptown, we looked high and low for the Barbie Bus but it was nowhere to be found! So, we hopped on the subway to head up to midtown where we went to Bare Escentuals for complimentary makeovers, followed by a quick “drive” by (more like a stroll by LOL) of Henri Bendel and Tiffany & Co.
So, this was just a summary of the things that we did for Fashion’s Night Out. Stay tuned for individual posts where I’ll share more details with photos and additional video footage of the night. I’m going to attempt to post everything today and you can just read in succession. If I don’t get to it all today, the rest will post by tomorrow.
P.S. Did you attend Fashion’s Night Out anywhere? If so, please share your footage (pics, posts etc) in the comments section!
