Damnit! I was just thinking it was about time for the yearly Fashion’s Night Out. This is when my neighborhood and all other fashion-oriented areas in the City throw great big fashion parties. Many stores serve wine (which I can’t drink, alas) and there are always give-aways, which is fun. The best part for me is all the people walking around, dressed to the nines. I love checking out everyone’s outfits! It’s all very glittery, with lights and cameras flashing—a fashion carnival.
Every year though, it’s gotten smaller and smaller. The first year Perry Street was blocked off and there were bands and booths and lots of stars. Nothing like that happens now, and not all the stores participate. I was already wondering if it had turned out to be not worth the expense. Sure enough, when I tried to find out what night it was going to be I read that there won’t be a Fashion’s Night Out this year. SO SAD.
Even though it’s been nine years (how can that be, how can that be??) since the last Sex and the City episode, people still crowd around the apartment where all the outdoor shots for Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment were filmed.
