My anticipation had been building all day as I anxiously awaited 6 p.m. –the official start time of Fashion’s Night Out on Rodeo Drive. Upon arrival, a towering Ferris wheel, rows of food trucks and performers on stilts crowded the street and set the tone for the carnival theme that awaited me at the GUESS store.
As servers in top hats greeted would-be-carnival-goers with mini cupcakes, cheesecake pops and HPNOTIQ Harmonie cocktails, guests received complimentary manicures and makeovers while the line for the photo booth snaked endlessly through the store.
If you’re looking for a girl’s night out, Fashion Night Out is it! Gaggles of gal pals surrounded me sipping and shopping. A shame it’s only one night a year, but that’s also what makes it so special. It’s fashion’s unofficial anniversary.
With my pretty purple drink in hand, I perused the fall fashions being presented by gorgeous models and danced to the tunes of a super stylish DJ. It was still early, but this was exactly what I needed to start the night off right.
Stay tuned to read all about my next stop of the night at the Kendra Scott jewelry boutique.
