HFNO - HOUSTON Magazine Suite

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Here is blogpost #2 on Houston Fashion's Night Out. After sipping and drinking all of the free stuff we could find in the stores, and signing up for giveaway after giveaway and happily accepting free samples of anything, we stopped by the HOUSTON magazine suite. And just when we thought we couldn't eat or drink anymore in came servers with delicious hors d'oeuvres from filet mignon to sesame chicken.  Immediately our stomachs "felt" empty again. Dessert was chocolate covered fortune cookies! Inside the lounge they had a fun photobooth in which Vivi and I took silly pictures with feather boas that matched our outfits.

Onto the Show
This year, the "seats" for the Fashion show were for "invite only" and "press". Lucky for me as a Fashion Reporter for www.fashionablyhouston.com Vivi and I were able to access the VIP show. Unfortunately if you did not have an invite or press information you had to view from the upper levels of the mall. I'm not sure I like how they closed off the show...last year it was open to everyone, and first come first serve for seats. Upon entering the Fashion Show you could get your picture taken on the "purple" carpet.
We received hard copies versus digital copies and I had to take a picture of this picture! Haha, but it's a very quality picture in person

Lounge inside Fashion Show area with complimentary Grey Goose vodka cocktails. I was done and only drank water :-)

More great complimentary Asian food! They had the cutest little boxes to stuff your food in.

So armed with yet another round of free food and drinks Vivi and I took our seats in the VIP sections of the Fashion Show. These seats had pretty cool goodie bags!!

OK, I've decided that I still have too many photos for one blog post, and I'm really bad at editing. Editing as in determining which pictures to leave out...so instead of going through that drama I'll just do one more FNO blogpost tomorrow. To finish this post, I'm going to skip ahead and show you pictures from after the fashion show.




So are you wondering what was in our goodie bags? I swiftly dumped mine out as soon as I got home!

Luv,
