fashion’s night out (and a few steals)!

Fashion’s Night Out tote, $50

Welcome to Fashion’s Night Out, friends! As usual, I’m blue as a pair of overdyed jeans about not being in NYC to celebrate, but luckily most major cities (and even a fair share of minor ones) are hosting great FNO events these days.

To find out what’s going on in your neck of the woods, check out the official FNO website, which links to all of the cities participating. In Portland, for example, most of the downtown retail shops are hosting special in-store events (free booze is often involved) and the Downtown Business Alliance is teaming up with all of the most fashion-forward stores in town to put on a fashion show in Director’s Park, which is always stellar. Also, swag bags! A minimum purchase gets you free parking and loads of awesome goodies – I got a sneak peek, and it’s pretty fab (think free eats, discounts at some of my favorite shops and free parking for the night!). If you see me out and about tonight, come say hi!

Or, if you’re a lazy homebody, fret not – plenty of Fashion’s Night In awesomeness happening too. The one-night-only discount codes are starting to roll into my inbox already, so check back here periodically today and I’ll update the list with all of the best! And of course, if you find a goodie, share it in the comments – shopping should always be a team sport.

  • London Sole: Finally splurge on those ballet flats you’ve been coveting. Use code FNO from 4-8 pm (EST) for a very rare 15% discount.
  • LAMade: One of my all-time favorite tee brands is offering 30% off, plus a free tee & free shipping with orders over $150. Use code FNOLA.
  • Kate Spade: Extra markdowns in a “Surprise Sale” happening today only.

So, tell me…are you headed out to partake of the FNO excitement tonight?

So exciting…it’s Fashion’s Night Out! Are you ready to party?

I’ll be checking out the festivities in Portland, where I have it on good authority there are some sweet swag bags (!) to be had, packed with goodies like American Express gift cards, beauty samples, and serious discounts at a bevy of local shops, including Mercantile, Radish Underground and Pendleton. I’m looking forward to taking full advantage – particularly since Pendleton will also be showing their new (and much-anticipated) Portland collection for the first time tonight!

{I heart swag!}

I’m so feeling the FNO vibe this year…it’s like a big fashion party in celebration of my birthday! (What? That’s not it?) In fact, I may even treat myself to some souvenir swag. This year’s tees are actually pretty fantastic – I’d love to layer one under a leather blazer, or pair it with a sweet flared skirt. Leave it to the always-impeccable Anna Wintour to mastermind a souvenir tee that looks like something from Proenza Schouler…albeit circa 1987. Still pretty sure that makes this the most stylish souvenir tee in history.

If you’re in town, stop by and say hi – I’ll keep you posted on my vantage point via Twitter, but will most likely be camped out at Nordstrom, after a pre-game champagne cocktail at Brasserie Montmartre.  If you’re not in the City of Roses, I hope you’ve found the FNO events going on in your city…they’re happening just about everywhere this year! Or, stay home and shop online – I’ve seen one-night-only online specials racing through my inbox at record speeds, so there are goodies to be had just about anywhere.

Do you have FNO plans this year?
