fashions night out kansas city

Well, I’m only what, two weeks late on this event? How do bloggers do NYFW? That’s what I want to know. I was there for two days and felt overwhelmed with photos and post ideas. So much so, that I put it off. Well! Here’s to learning from mistakes right?

I went to Fashion’s Night Out on the The Plaza on Sept. 6. I wanted to get down there early, but unfortunately work took longer than I expected that night and I didn’t make it there until about 8 p.m. I really wanted to meet so many of the bloggers I’ve been reading since I’ve moved to town like Chasing Davies, Louise in Leopard, Simply Bold, Pretty Polished Perfect, Kimberly Loc, Mimi and Chi Chi and Your Style Scout – but I was just too late! I did get to see some of their fabulous styled outfits at Halls KC though! Great job ladies! Here’s a couple looks I saw first hand (sorry for the blurred text):

I also loved this look on display. Wait, is that an oxblood leather jacket 🙂 ?

The good news? I finally ran into my friend Monica of Finer Feelings! I’m an idiot for not grabbing a photo of the two of us, but I was just so excited to see her that it slipped my mind. If you haven’t discovered her blog yet, go now! And I don’t send away readers lightly 🙂

Over at Standard Style I tried on a few things, but just couldn’t find the right fit.

Finally, I hit up J. Crew. Although it was definitely the most quiet of the stores I went to that night, it was the one place I found the perfect thing to buy: a new leopard iPhone case. Let’s not kid ourselves, I can always find a reason to indulge in a tech accessory. I couldn’t find a link to this specific case, but here’s a similar version.

On my way to my car, I also spotted the new Boulevard Brewery pop-up gift shop which is rumored to be opening later this fall for the holidays! Can’t wait to hear more about this.

Overall, I’d say it was a successful first Fashion’s Night Out in Kansas City. Can’t wait to see what KC has in store for future fashion events! And hopefully, I won’t miss all the networking fun next time, too.
