Gearing Up for Fashion’s Night Out at Macy’s (Sneak Peek Included)


The countdown to Fashion’s Night Out has officially begun!

In preparation for FNO at Macy’s State Street, I headed to the store to pull looks for the fashion presentation. I had an amazing time selecting the wardrobe for the models. And as I ran around the store like a madwoman, attempting to find the specific items I wanted (translation: needed), I developed a newfound respect for stylists. Creating multiple head-to-toe looks for a fashion presentation is NO JOKE!

The overall focus is on Fall trends. However, I made a conscious effort to select items that were both “of the moment” yet versatile and timeless. Now that means you have to come out on Thursday to let me know if I accomplished my goal!

Here’s a peek at some of the items I chose.

Clearly, I am obsessed with colors and prints.

I look forward to seeing what my fellow bloggers, Shae and Hallie, picked for their looks. We all have different aesthetics, which will make for an interesting presentation of varying styles. Plus, with Nzimiro Oputa hosting, it will be a guaranteed fun time.

If you are attending the 6PM presentation (and I hope you will), be sure to stop by my Fashion Closet  afterwards, in the Impulse Department on the 3rd Floor, around 7PM to chat about the show, fashion, or anything your heart desires. The closet will also allow you to get an up close look at everything I selected for the show as well as a few other key items in the store that I am currently loving. And just for stopping by, you’ll receive a special Fashion’s Night Out gift, exclusive from Macy’s. Pretty good deal, right?

Now for the burning question: Will I be seeing you on Thursday??!
