Night Out: Fashion's Night Out

This past Friday was Fashion's Night Out, as I'm sure you know, and there were so many options for events to attend/places to shop! Did you attend any of the festivities? I opted to avoid the sheer insanity of the Manhattan events and instead attended Re/Dress NYC's Count My Curves Event in Brooklyn! If you didn't know, Re/Dress is is a premiere vintage & resale clothing boutique specializing in sizes 14+ (vintage: 10+). It’s also a buy/sell/trade establishment allowing women to sell clothing for cash or store credit, which is an environmental and recession friendly way to refresh a wardrobe.

I thought of wearing an outfit in the morning that might transition well from day to evening but, because everything has been so hectic at work I figured a clean slate for the night was in order! There's no fun to be had when you are feeling grimy or reminded of the stresses of the day...
  • Top: silver color block tank top, Simply Vera by Vera Wang via Kohl's; gray flyaway cardigan, New York and Company
  • Bottom: black really skinny pants, GAP/gift from BF
  • Shoes and Accessories: black pumps, Candies via Kohl's; my abuela's vintage silver hoop earrings; silver sequins embellished clutch, French Connection UK

Here are some more pictures of the evening and the goody bag swag! Please excuse the crappy quality they were taken with my Droid:

Re/Dress was offering 10% off your purchase when you filled out a card petitioning some select big name designers to start making clothing for the average woman so I couldn't help but, take advantage and pick something out... The clothing selection was immense but, I ended up with this adorable pair of teal flats originally from ALDO. It was the color that initally attracted me to them but, the comfort that made me pick them up! It's like walking on clouds... I found the same shoes in black for more than 3x what I paid so I'm feeling pretty good about that!


  1. You are so lucky you ARE IN NY AND CAN GO to Fashion's Night out !
    I would have LOVED to go, but only saw it on tv....
    I am looking forward to continue reading about it in other blogs.
    I had not idea that FNO also included vintage shops like the one you mention. You learn something new everyday :) thanks for sharing.

  2. You look fantastic! I agree, while it's nice to be able to wear a day-to-evening outfit, sometimes it's even nicer to just completely change into something fresh with no reminder of the day you've had!

    You look really great in that silver top and I love those teal flats you scored!

  3. Fabulous shoes! The teal flats are a great pop of color. Bonus of getting them at a great price.


Thanks for your feedback! I really look forward to hearing from you...
