Weirdly, even though I was surrounded by a lot of beautiful people who were a lot better dressed, I felt pretty walking around Fashion’s Night Out last night. When all is said and done, I am happy about how I look. For now. But I’ve got my eye on you looks.
The best activity was actually in the Meat Market, not on Bleecker Street. This was some sort of Moulin Rouge set-up. I forget the vendor. In every case I forget the vendors, although I want to thank the following vendors for the free stuff: popchips (delicious, not just saying that because it was free, I’m addicted now, hey, wait a minute … thanks a heap popchip) Capezio (free tights) Maybelline (free mascara).
I wish I had gotten better shots that gave an overview of the activity. It was a madhouse. But I like the bustle-y feel of this shot. There were all these tall girls who must be models all over the place. Not fond of the Lady Gaga shoes.
People giving and getting free stuff.
11th Street was blocked off for the Teen Vogue party this year instead of Perry Street. The Perry Street residents are probably relieved except I thought they got money for putting up with it every year. Over all, Bleecker Street vendors didn’t make an effort this year. It looked like very little money was spent.
A little while after I got home they started testing the Tribute in Lights. They always do a test run before 9/11.
