I really loved going to this fashion show. It was my first ever exclusive fashion show it was super fun. I loved seeing all the new spring trends out on the runway. I also loved how it was an exclusive seating. It was random seating but I liked how you had to have tickets to get in. It made me feel like I was going to a private party.

They provided breakfast which was really yummy. They provided food from the local hotel near by which was mainly mini quiches. There was also fresh fruit, drinks and coffee. Also Cinnabon and TopPot Donuts provided cinnamon rolls and small donuts. They were super tasty!

They had these swag bags on the chairs. Inside there are a lot of mini gifts and coupons and offers from the stores in the Bellevue Collection. One of them was a free makeover at Sephora. It was super fun getting my makeup done.

My mom and I spent most of the day shopping around using the coupons I got and visited stores that I love to shop at. We also got our nails done at (I don’t know what the name of the place is) It was super nice to relax a little after the long day of shopping.

I shopped at American Eagle and bought a pair of Dark Wash Denim Shorts, $39.95

I also went to Forever21 and got a bunch of new accessories.

I would definitely want to go to this event again. It was totally worth the time and money. This would be great event to go to if you are really into what the trend is for the season. It gives you a good perspective on what is coming up in the stores at the Bellevue Collection.

Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out at The Bellevue Collection was a super great experience. It’s not a fashion show or anything but it was still really cool.

They had designs from local designers like Lizzie Parker and Lisa Van Hunter. I actually saw Lisa & Lizzie at the party.

Lisa Van Hunter

Speaking of the party, I got there early enough that I was on of the first 200 people (who RSVP’d) to get to go to this party and get a free swag bag.

Inside was a super cute bag from Free People and a bunch of coupons for a bunch of stores in the mall.

Also, at the party were snacks from Pinkabella Cupcakes, TopPot doughnuts, and Cinnabon. It was awesome!

After the party, my mom and I walked to a bunch of stores that were promoting giveaways and special discounts for this event. My favorite store that I visited was Kate Spade New York. I love her style of clothing. It has a vintage flare. Plus, the shop itself was so cute looking. I was in love. But of course I couldn’t afford anything.

I loved Fashion’s Night Out and I would definitely go there next year. Maybe I will even try to get into another fashion event during Fashion Week. It would be a dream!
