|I love this look!!|
Fashion is, perhaps by necessity, in a world of its own – one that only rarely overlaps with anything resembling real life. This fantasy and exoticism is part of its appeal, of course. –Vince Alette
|Eleanor also tried on this Prada...|
only about $2300!
Sometimes when I attend these events, I feel as though I have just entered a fantasy world. My world does not include valet parking, $2500 dresses, fur coats, strands of diamonds, or even $600 shoes…unless, of course, I stumble upon an amazing consignment shop! However, attending events like FNO take me into that world, if only for just a short time and I really think it is fun! Being a reporter, gives me a reason to experience each moment to its fullest. I also receive inspiration for my own style….while I cannot afford many of the clothes at Neiman Marcus…I do believe that I captured some mannequins which can inspire a look or two for me! I was encouraged to meet some wonderful 50+ women who also have a love of the fashion world. They beg for more events along the lines of FNO. I had such a good time with my friends Gigi and Eleanor so I think this is a great girl’s night out as well. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite moments from the evening in this slide show. It was a fantasy world I thoroughly enjoyed.
As much as I loved the fashion...I also loved the artwork...the window displays...antique chandeliers lit dimly at sunset...and women with fabulous smiles. Tomorrow, I will return here as the incognito SouthTexas high school teacher!!
