As you can see from the previous post, Fashion’s Night Out in NYC was mayhem–people streaming in and out of shops, celebs out of context, and most importantly, endless champagne! Our correspondent in NYC was able to rub elbows (almost) with Karl Lagerfeld, buy cutesy Marc Jacobs accessories out of a truck and generally participate in the NYC-as-a-shopping-block-party festivities.
Unfortunately, the same or even vaguely similar cannot be said for San Diego, where I was stuck. I had hopes for at least a semblance of what I experienced in NYC the prior year. Not to be had. Based on the Fashion’s Night Out website, Neiman Marcus seemed the most promising, so when my companion and I arrived, we were flummoxed when the woman manning the door informed us we were supposed to RSVP because they were at capacity. Huh? After she didn’t let us in, we changed our strategy and hit up another entrance and acted confused when we weren’t on the RSVP list. After we got in, there were some passed trays and some champagne and a half-hearted fashion show. Snooze.
What about other shops? How about Henri Bendel or Hermes or Betsey Johnson? We hit them all and no one was there, save for a few cute shop boys in horse heads at Hermes and some mini-cupcakes at Betsey Johnson. Check out the photos below and try not to develop narcolepsy.

Fashion’s Night Out in New York City was another crazy night filled with celebs, parties, free champagne and shopping!
Here are our champagne-fueled shots from the evening–from Karl Lagerfeld’s arrival at the Chanel Soho boutique to traffic shutdown in front of Sephora, courtesy of Gwen Stefani.
The masses waiting for Victoria’s Secret Angels Doutzen Kroes, Chanel Iman and Adriana Lima to flap their wings (or sign autographs).
Prada, Michael Kors shop exteriors and live models at Agent Provocateur and Y-3. Where do you apply for that job?
We just died and went to Chanel heaven. Chanel Soho shop exterior, interior, makeup counter (where the new Les Khakis de Chanel was flying off the shelves and onto New Yorkers’ nails) and KARL LAGERFELD’S arrival!
The fashionable at D&G and Betsey Johnson.
Gwen Stefani shutting down traffic in front of Sephora on Broadway to promote Harajuku Lovers’ newest fragrance collection.
And our vote for the cutest idea of the evening–the custom Marc Jacobs accessories pop-up truck outside Bloomingdales Soho!

Not interested in stalking Jessica Simpson at Macy’s or getting help posing for the red carpet (that you will likely never grace) at Henri Bendel from Olivia Palermo on Fashion’s Night Out? Then check out the Non-Fashion People’s Fashion’s Night Out at Partners & Spade where Vena Cava and Subports are selling one-of-a-kind creations handmade by people with no connection to the fashion industry, including a police officer, a toddler, an Oklahoma farmer, some prisoners and designer Lisa Mayock’s dad.

. . . And Pink Floyd and AC/DC tees. We thought we’d crop out the bras in the back, but we left them there for your enjoyment!
Who knew? We went to pick up some body wash and unwaxed floss and happened upon these cool burnout sleep tees. With a loose fit and casual v-neck, these “vintage” tees were a steal at only $9. Of course, visions of child labor dance in our heads every time we even contemplate buying something at Walmart (especially since it’s Labor Day today).
At any rate (and with the disclaimer that we DO NOT support child labor) $9 seems like a helluva deal compared to some over-priced fake vintage rock tees we’ve seen elsewhere.
And if a tee shirt isn’t enough, you can snag the matching cropped sweats. (You have to admit, they ARE cute for working out.)

This adorable dress from Kensie, featuring the oh-so-current-for-fall neutral tone and utility details like an asymmetrical snap placket, vertical exposed zippers, and drawstring ties is on sale for only $32.99 at Lord & Taylor, with an additional 20% off!
Wear it bare-legged through the end of summer, then wear with tights, boots and a cardi for fall. Tres cheap, yet tres chic!

The Olsens’ and Charlotte Ronson’s collections for the masses at JC Penney, Olsenboye and I Heart Ronson, respectively, are now even cheaper than dirt. Marked to half off (and more), you can grab a little Olsen or a little Ronson for around $20.
I think this purple ethnic print skirt from I Heart Ronson is adorable and tres current. When fall rolls around, slap on some tights and a cardigan and you’re good to go.
For those of you who are still OK with the idea of grown women wearing rompers, I present the Olsenboye floral romper, with a darling mini-floral print and cuffed legs.
