What are my plans for NY Fashion Night Out Sept 6th 2012 ?! [FNO / what to do in NY]

I have no idea how I will be able to cover the Hermès sample sale and Fashion Night Out since they are happening on the same day but one is at wee hours in the a.m. and the other is way pass my weekday curfew (I am old!). I think it's going to have to be an either or situation because I just don't have the energy/fashionista stamina in me to do both...do I?? [Update: Turns out the sale is a BUST! Phewwww!]

FNO 2010 at Bergdorf Goodman

This was me at FNO in 2010 where I spent the whole time at Bergdorf Goodman. I didn't make it out to FNO last year due to being turned off by crowds but this year, I'll make it epic. I was thinking of just doing ONE event but I went through the event listings and couldn't help myself. I will try to hit several stores and hope to get lots of freebies or limited edition shizz! I may have a partner during all of this too! But if I'm going to go all crazy, being alone might be the best thing for catching everything in one night...Fudge, do I also have to plan an outfit too? nahhh

Here are some events I'm thinking of attending for the moment which I picked from Refinery29 and official FNO website's list of events. You can go to FNO's website and create a list of your events with maps and to print it out so you can use it as your guide. I need to plan this out since they are in 3 different districts across NY and I will not be cabbing it (heard of the taxi drought during Fashion week AND fare hikes starting today on September 4th?).


[Correction for this event! It is bags available for pre-release SALE and is not free. 100 bags is available amongst select Bottega Veneta stores worldwide!]
