Fashion’s Night Out a la Santa Monica

Last year was my first time to experience Fashion’s Night Out, and I dragged my more than willing husband (yah, he’s that good) to the Beverly Center where we braved the onslaught of folks trying to get a glimpse of some fall fashion (and a celeb or two). It was well worth it just for the sales alone – where and when else can you get a $20 pair of cork wedges!

This year, since I already knew what to expect at the Beverly Center (and I’d just hit up their labor day sales the weekend before), I was up for something new this time around. Lucky for me, Santa Monica Place partnered with Los Angeles magazine for FNO, complete with a fashion show hosted by none other than Fashion Editor Linda Immediato – check out her Haute List blog for some entertaining Fashion Editor Problems from FNO.

American Idol finalist Stefano performed and started things up before the show with his debut single “I’m On A Roll”.

Some candid shots of Linda and me chattin’ it up after the show – she did amazing!

Evan Picone tweed jacket from Jet Rag‘s $1 Sunday Yard Sale (see Graffiti Artist). AQUA sleeveless blouse purchased at Bloomingdales Sherman Oaks fall fashion event (similar here). Gap 1969 legging jeans. Guess snakeskin point toe heels from Felines in NY, miss that place (just bought these, on sale of course). Messenger Bag: Kristen Bell for Erica Anenberg. Jewelry is a mix of Forever21, Michael Kors, and BCBG.

Had to snap a cute pic of my co-worker Liz wearing Forever21 blouse and skirt, Wasteland necklace, and Deena and Ozzy shoes from Urban Outfitters (not pictured). Check out her tumblr that’s as hip as she is at Liz Rennie. 21. (I’m turning into one of those people who uses the word “hip” to describe someone younger than me…and you can add 10 to that).

Played personal shopper with a friend, and spotted these Badgley Mischka peep toe pumps that at first glance look silver, but in certain lighting shift to gold. I’ve seen this iridescent shoe trend now with several brands, and have to say I’m a fan – how fun would these be with cigarette jeans and a chic blazer? just sayin’

“Good enough to eat” has never meant more to me than when I spied these Sam Edelman blue suede shoes at Bloomingdales – Moni would even agree, she wore these Dior pumps at her wedding…

Check out more photos from the fashion show with styles from Bloomingdales, Kitson, Kenneth Cole, Ted Baker London, Nordstroms, and more!
