Indy's Fashion's Night Out!

Last Thursday, fashion took over Indianapolis as stylish Hoosiers gathered to celebrate Fashion's Night Out! This was Indy's first year participating in the one-night-only shopping event which was a huge success! Numerous events took place around Indy {which I followed through fellow bloggers Instagrams}, but I only attended the events downtown at the Artsgarden and Circle Centre Mall. 

My night started with wine at the VIP reception where I finally met a few people I'd only known through Twitter! Weird how that works. To kick off the night's event, local design houses presented their lines one right after another, describing unique details their lines encompass. After snapping away and getting a little antsy to get out in the mall {I had a minor case of FOMO - fear of missing out}, a few friends and bloggers joined me in meandering the hallways to check out some of the participating stores. To be honest, Circle Centre Mall was pretty dead and it was difficult to tell which stores were  participating in FNO. I ended up not shopping at all because I was too focused on some other things, but the ladies I was with made some fabulous fall purchases! I made it back in time for a couple more presentations that wrapped up the night's event. Shortly after, a few of us went to the Libertine for dinner and drinks, before heading over to Blu Lounge for the FNO after party! Most of the party goers looked exhausted (and for good reason!}; however, celebrations continued well through the night with stiff drinks in hand!

Overall, I'd say FNOindy was a huge success! There are areas that need improvement for next year's FNO, but you live and you learn when when it comes to a first annual event. I hope you all had a great FNO in your city {or online} and got some lots of goodies!
