And I mean literally, because the crowds were out in high numbers Thursday night! I mainly stuck to Manhattan and Soho as thats where most of the action was happening, and when I got in to Manhattan I thought the crowd size was as expected but I certainly got a huuuuuuuge shock as soon as I stepped out to Soho. Thousands of amazingly dressed people running around trying to score the best deals or waiting to catch their favourite performer at the favourite stores. It was so insane but definitely one of the best experience. Imagine Splendour In The Grass type crowds but concentrating on fulfilling their sartorial needs.
So, I ended up only visiting two (out of my planned four) places due to a few wrong turns here and there but also because you literally couldnt get in to any of the stores unless of course you wanted to stand in line waiting for hours. And I wasnt about to waste my first ever Fashion Night Out waiting in lines.
Yes, a complete failure of all my plans but I still had a ball of a time! A lot of the times I just enjoyed sitting back (or standing on a ledge at Bloomingdales) just people watching and making small talk with other FNO goers. We ended the night with some drinks at the Soho Room and came home to our laptops to catch the final minutes of Solestruck's massive sale where I bought these beauties.
It was a great experience to finally explore FNO NYC and I can honestly say that despite the crowds, waiting in lines and disappointments, I would most probably do it all over again.
My outfit for the night and my DIY Embellished Clutch keeping me company.
How was your FNO night? Did you get some bargains???
And, if you managed to make it through all that, kudos.
Talk soon! - xoxo-
