Ideas/ Suggestions for next year:
Here are 7 tips that I formulated based on my experience at FNO and what I plan to incorporate into and consider for next year's plans:
1. Go out to eat before or after the event
Make a night of it! This year, I cooked and ate at home. Eating out would cost money, but if planned ahead of time it would really make the night fun. It would also keep you from devouring the refreshment platters!
2. Plan your outfit ahead of time
Try on various outfits and consider the following:
a. It's an evening event so incorporate colors/fabrics/patterns that are appropriate for night
b. What will the weather be like?
c. What styles are in for fall?
d. What do I feel most stylish & comfortable in?
3. Wear comfy shoes (I suggest wedge heels) or pack a pair of flats in your purse.
Keep in mind that no matter where you're spending your night, you are guaranteed to be doing a lot of walking.
4. Review the event calendar of the venue that you will be going to.
Select the top stores/ events that you want to attend and find out where they are located. This will save you a lot of time during the evening and ensure that you do the things that you really want to do.
Depending on where you're going, there may be a lot of traffic and difficulty parking, not to mention the possible parking fees! You're not always guaranteed parking spots near each other so this will make things so much easier, plus it's good for the environment! Turn up your favorite car tunes, sing and dance, and make the car ride one of the funnest parts of your night!
6. Arrive at your venue early.
Consider the fact that you may need to park far away and walk to the events. Give yourself time to attend the events at ease without rushing.
7. Have fun!
Take pictures! Get your makeup done! Buy a cute top if you see one! Just have fun.
So, how did you participate in FNO in your area? Do you have any suggestions for next year's Fashion's Night Out? I'd love to know! Share your thoughts below!
