Fashionistas, here’s one event that you cannot miss, especially if you consider yourself a fashion hardcore. Celebrating their 3rd anniversary, this is the right time to do your shopping. But of course shopping isn’t the only reason why you should come out, it’s the fun of meeting new people, dressing up nice and finding new style icons to be your next inspirations. You can find new locations, goodies to get straight from their website. Here are some tips on how to prepare yourself for a fun FNO!
1. Get Off Work Early (if possible ; )
Although FNO is held after hours, you sure need time to get ready! So if you think your boss is in a good mood, try to ask permission to leave work early so you can have enough time to doll up.
2. Dress Up Stylish and Comfortable
1. Erin Fetherston Cotton Silk Blend Dress. US$195.
2. Stila Eye Shadow Oasis. US$18.
3. Anne Klein Worn Gold White Pearl Bracelet. US$46.
4. Rebecca Minkoff Zipper Crossbody Bag. US$195.
5. Enzo Angiolini Rennes Shoes. US$79.20.
I made a mix and match idea a while ago and you can see them here. That works when you feel like going casual and trendy, but I decided to make another option in case you feel a bit feminine and high-class ; )
3. Go With the Girls
There’s nothing more fun and adventurous than go shopping with your girl buddies, so make sure you give them a holler and have a fashionable girls night out!
4. Control Yourself
I know how we can get out of control when we’re in an event full of great fashion, one tip I can definitely give you is to just bring one credit card. You are allowed to splurge but you also need to control yourself ; ) Give yourself a preview by having virtual tour on the site and ask Barbie for more “what to get/what to do” advice! Another good thing is that you can also purchase the FNO’s merchandise and at the same time helping the NYC AIDS fund. More info here.
5. Have Fun
Go out there, make new friends, enjoy good fashion and snap lots of pictures because that’s what FNO is all about!
