After browsing through one of my favorite blogs The Man Repeller I realized just how close FNO was. Of course, I had already started preparing, but I was doing my best to be blissfully ignorant about the dreaded end of summer. But the truth is, the days of lounging around in the sun are coming to an end. Fashion's Night Out has long been a dream of mine. That's right, a dream. I don't live in New York (Ooh now you know I don't live in NY, there's only 49 other states and I don't know how many other countries to choose from. Happy guessing) and I certainly don't plan to fly there for a one night sale. Nope plain old me is going to use the internet that I've been so neglecting these past few months (see previous post). Now I have always been hesitant about internet shopping, especially in bulk because I just don't know how it will look on my body (why I haven't participated in FNO before, I've merely been a spectator of the sales) so this time it may take some courage. But I'm determined to at least shop a little this year. Want to join me in my internet adventures or find shops that are participating in NYC or beyond? Simply go to this site, and planning a spectacular shopping spree could never have been easier. To get you psyched for the big day (September 6th) here are some clothes from participating online stores.
BCBG is just an example of the beautiful gowns and regular street clothes that will be yours for the taking if you win the $1000 BCBGMAXAZRIA wardrobe. How to enter? tag an outfit to #BCBGFNO on Instagram for your chance to win! (bcbg.com, $298.00)
Blowfish Shoes? Well they are currently selling for only $79. Find shoes this price and even less in the sale section of this amazing online haven.
Habit of Urban, you perfect piece for fall. How I long to place you in my closet an feel your warmth on the coldest of days. And look, if I buy you on September 6th between 6-11pm, you come along with a reversible blouse! The joys of FNO. (shop-habitofurban.com, $139.26)
Maybelline New York, I plan to give it all I got. (Volume Express, The Falsies, Black Drama Mascara, no price listed)
Messes of Dresses for only $95.00? Then you should know there are tons more just like it.
In addition to these great finds, there are the likes of Sperry Top-Sider, my fave shoe brand for their preppy designs, and Rent the Runway, the equivalent of Netflix with clothes, to shop online. The stores above are, in my opinion, your best bets for FNO. They are the most affordable, yet still unbelievably chic online places in the line up, and trust me, I looked through them all (well mostly, I got tired towards the end of the alphabet and skipped to my go-to stores but come on, there are hundreds). Decide for yourself from the full list of participating stores here.
Until next time.
