Daily Diary: Fun, Fizz and Flair with Diet Pepsi during Fashion Night Out – Day 1, Part 2

OK… I was giddy to be heading out tonight to celebrate Fashion Night Out with Diet Pepsi.

Literally, I was GIDDY! I have never truly celebrated a Fashion Night Out before and I just couldn’t wait to get “out there” and have some fashion fun!

My 1 MISSION of the night… find the perfect dress for tomorrow.

The W Hotel was hosting Rent the Runway Pop-up stores tonight. I’m a HUGE Rent the Runway fan, so I was excited to actually see a pop-up store in action!  It was like waiting for a magic closet to open… I couldn’t wait to see what kind of fabulousness was inside!




Immediately I started pulling dresses to see what would be the best fit for me for tomorrow’s shows.  I’ll be attending Rebecca Minkoff’s and Nicole Miller’s shows, so I was on the hunt for some beauties from either one of them.




I ended up ordering a gorgeous Nicole Miller dress through Rent the Runway’s online service, and it will be sent to me tomorrow before the shows! I can’t wait to show it off for you. It’s for some definite FLAIR! 🙂


After Rent the Runway… we were off to DKNY!


DKNY holds a very special place in my heart because I worked for Donna Karan when I first moved to NYC in 2000. I worked at the corporate offices in mid-town, but I spent many days and nights shopping around the DKNY store for some must-have items. It was awesome heading back there with Diet Pepsi to have some FUN!

The cool thing about their Fashion Night Out event was that they had the men of NYFD who starred in the famous calendar there to take photos and sign autographs! It was awesome!




Love this photo of me and the lovely Gillian!


And then the AMAZING PepsiCo TEAM! 🙂


I had a blast having so much fun at DKNY and really seeing so much flair and so much glitz and glamour!


After DKNY’s Fashion Night Out… off to Bloomingdales for their Fashion Night Out!  The store was ROCKING!  It was packed with activities and events and tons of fun things for everyone to do.


Celebrity Mission tonight accomplished.

Meet Rob Thomas from Matchbox Twenty.


Done! 🙂 He was super sweet and was so nice when I asked him if I could grab a photo with him.


And just walking around and seeing the gorgeous flair!  It was so much fun and so absolutely cool!


Fashion Night Out was a true SUCCESS!

I’m heading to bed to get ready for tomorrow!  It’s a jam-packed fun-filled day with fashion shows and shopping!

Stay tuned everyone… !
