If you aren’t familiar with the illustrious world of fashion, allow me to get you acquainted with one of the most exciting weeks in the biz! Last Friday also know as Fashion Night Out wrapped up Fashion Week New York. 2011’s Hautest trends and most amazing Spring Collections were showcased.
Ok so that has nothing to do with this article! The honors for this piece without doubt go to the infamous Fashion Night Out. This Vogue inspired day of fashion mayhem being held on the last Friday of Fashion Week, is almost solely responsible for jump starting the consumer confidence (for retail that is) after a horrific financial downturn just 3 years ago. Though it’s only in it’s 2nd annual phase, this year’s Fashion Night Out was HUGE and “HUGE” made it’s way all the way south to Dallas, TX!
Being the fashionista that I tend to be, I was flooded with coveted invitations to over 12 private high-end retailer soirees. Inundation has become a permanent fixture in my life it seems. So there was only room for ONE (Major BOMBER!) due to my crazy schedule. After careful consideration (and I mean VERY careful), I chose to attend the Christian Louboutin Store in Highland Park Village (in Dallas) for their Grand Opening Party and Extravaganza. It was THE BOMB! I absolutely LOVED the store, the decor, and of course the management team. Mark and Whitney will definitely be my go to people there (How You Doin’??).
Walking it Out in My Little Red Soles would be the phrase for the night. As I was strongly encouraged by other party goers to strut my stuff down the black carpet, I drooled over this Patriotic looking display with some A-MA-ZING 8 inch gold heeled stilettos. Hummmphh…and then there was silence. So not knowing that those were the shoes that I would have to work it out in as apart of the contest, I quickly decided to enter my name. “GA-GA GAGA GA-GA…” Blared throughout the building. I downed my second glass of champagne and headed for the start line. Last but not least, I worked those Miss America, Patriotic looking platform pumps O-U-T out! And down the black carpet it went. The blinding bulbs were flashing and people were cheering and the champagne…….. well “you know”! HA!
The rest was history! I brought home that Crown, Sash, Flowers, oh and of course those DAMN red soled shoes! That’s right! Your favorite fashionista brought home the title of Miss Louboutin and a pair of FREE “Miss America” platform pumps (aka the Patriot Pump). That’s cute!
