Fashion's Night Out

As a fashion obsessed, I've obviously always wanted to go to fashion week in New York or London or Paris or anywhere.. and I've always been intrigued by New York's Fashion's Night Out. Well lucky me because Portland had their very own FNO! FNO started in NY as a way to kick off Fashion Week. In Portland there were free pedi cab rides, chalk art, trunk shows, gift bags, lots of entertainment and light food and refreshments.

I went with two of my good friends (and roommates from college in Eugene) Ashley and Amy. First we came across live parkour sponsored by the new CITY Collection from Columbia Sportswear. Next we ate dinner at Violetta in Director's Park.
Caesar salad & sweet potato fries. Next time I'll try the seasonal fruit (peaches!) and goat cheese salad.

After eating we watched the Pendleton Fashion Show. Yes, Pendleton as in blankets, had a fashion show. Beautiful stuff too! More to come on the Pendleton Portland Collection.
It was such a beautiful (hot) night, so nice to be sitting outside enjoying the show. The fashion shows were in the middle of Director's Park, pretty cool! Treva joined us after dinner to check out the rest of downtown.

We went to Nordstrom, got our photo taken and got some snacks and beverages. From left to right, Amy, Treva, Ashley, Me.

At Nords, I got a free little reusable shopping bag and entered a drawing to win a shopping spree. Didn't win anything but still fun!

Since we went downtown on the later side we went to H&M and then everything started to close up.

I had a great time. It was so fun that Portland did this event and I'm already looking forward to next year. Maybe one day I will even go in New York for Fashion's Night out.

Here is a little more about NY FNO from Bill Cunningham, one of the original street style blogger.
