FNO LOOK BACK…
As I continue recuperating from a wonderful fast-paced week of fashion, I think fondly of the highlights starting with with the Fashion Night Out kickoff. In it’s fourth year, that event was so well done…worldwide. From Milan to Australia to historic Alexandria, Virginia (a first) – boutiques became party central for shoppers. I had a blast at Manhattan’s FNO going from store to store with my gang of friends. One of my favorite experiences was stopping at Henri Bendel (see pic of fab draq queen performing at the store’s entrance) and the Milly store (where my friends and I took photobooth pics). However, I hated missing the FNO action back home. I asked my dear photog friend Vic to shoot me a video, so I’d be up to date. That event was emceed by television celebrity Monte Durham of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress – Atlanta”. How cute is that?! Check out Vic’s video and my NYC photos (more are coming up). Shout out to Jody from the famed Bittersweet Catering and PR extraordinaire Maurisa Potts (she’s the runway announcer in the video) for doing an amazing job with Alexandria’s FNO. OH…and special thanks to ESPION Atelier for allowing me to wear the super cool femme fatale jumpsuit. I think it would be fashion night out every night with a piece from that collection!:)

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
