Fashion’s Night Out took place around the world last night and I for one wasn’t about to miss an opportunity to catch fashion shows, beauty bars, fall collection debuts, giveaways and special shopping discounts. We headed straight for the Beverly Center to catch the opening ceremony and fashion show. It was jam packed with excited fashionistas and the people watching in the crowd was almost as interesting as what was happening on stage. After the first of two fashion shows that featured looks available in some of the mall’s stores, we hit the shops in search of great fashion and great deals. Though we wanted to make it to the happenings on Robertson and Melrose, the traffic was so bad just to get to the Beverly Center, we decided to stay there for the second fashion show from Forever XXI and it was worth it as they showed some inspiring looks for fall – it’s all about patterns and layers ladies!
While my taste leans more towards unique vintage than mainstream mall looks, I do like to mix it up with some trendy pieces. My pal Fabby found a cute mini skirt and mod jacket (with a free goodie bag!) and I found a few cute accessories (with an FNO discount!) and plenty of photo ops in the creative outfits people wore for the night. In trend spotting news, the short-in-the-front-long-in-the-back dresses (also known as the “mullet dress“) seem to be all the rage and it does look mighty chic with a pair of stilettos! I also saw a lot of big, and I mean BIG, chunky earrings.
