FNO with LVF

NYFW has past, but FNO will always a memory of craziness.

Although it was my first time venture out for Fashion's Night Out, I was not alone - Dalin from La Vida Frills decided to team up and find out what all the insanity was all about.

I do mean insanity.

Four hours to get into the Missoni @Target Pop-up Shop in Bryant Park. Kim Kardashian and Pauly D shut down DASH.  We were at none of these.

Our adventure took us to Sephora to (attempt to) see Kristen Bauer from True Blood. The store was packed to maximum capacity with four different lines (three for free hair and makeup sessions and one for celebrity photo-ops) snaking around the entire store and meshed together.

Next stop was Opening Ceremony, where Manila Luzon was DJing. Again more lines, but plenty of carnival games. Opening Ceremony held another carnival, this time Argentinian theme (last year was Paris), with Muppets everywhere.  We couldn't resist the call of a water gun race.
So good at this game she doesn't need to look.
The night ended in SoHo hoping to find something that was not so line intensive and do some actually shopping.  Betsey Johnson started the night out with cupcakes and champagne and ended with champagne.  Tried on a bustle jacket that was instantly bought, and for my troubles the store offered me a free makeover.

The only advice I have for next year (If there is a next year.) is to plan ahead and keep to schedule.  (The people at Vogue are rumoring that it's one giant party where nobody is carded and people aren't shopping as much as expected, to be worth it.)

Nike MAGs were debuted to be auctioned off for charity.
Were you at FNO? Was it crazy where you were?

Special thanks goes out to Dalin who helped me take pictures at Betsey Johnson.

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
