out on a school night in the city.

To be totally honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to go out this year for Fashion's Night Out. I only had one destination, and both of my friends had classes till 8:00-8:30 at night. But as a fashion major, all the teachers encourage us to go one way or another.
In the end, we went around 9pm, which is a little past fashionably late for the party, but better late that never.
I went with Finn and Shaelyn, and the three of us didn't have much of an idea where exactly we were going. The only destination I had was Miu Miu because I wanted to see Tavi. I think I even subconsciously threw in some Tavi vibes while putting together my outfit.
I'm a total beginner with my camera, so Finn took most of my photos for me since she has the same camera. It's kind of nice to not take all my photos myself all the time; no need to look for a table the right height and running back and forth till I get a good one.
I think originally we were planning on seeing Daniel Radcliffe, but we missed the stop and went to Macy's instead. I hadn't seen the Karl line yet so I wanted to check it out.
Tempted to get the leather shorts and a Karl tee from his Impulse line, but even Macy's prices are a bit of a stretch for me. I put back that FNO tee shirt too.

We stopped by H&M after Macy's and I started trying to shield my eyes because there were a bunch of things that I wanted that I could have easily bought, but I didn't want to spend money. Which is kind of silly considering I've been needing to get new clothes.
But all the things that I wanted were things that were similar to the clothes I already had, so I didn't end up buying anything.

dress from H&M, petticoat from flea market, furry cardigan from thrift, H&M lace scarf, accessories from flea market and Forever21, Docs from Asos.

I'll make this an outfit post.
Bunny bag! The other ear is hiding. There was a guy in H&M who commented on it and asked me what it was.

Next stop was Sephora because it was right across the street.
They were doing this photo taking thing that I kind of wanted to do, but it was too crowded and the line was too long and the music was too loud so it didn't take too long for us to leave.

It took us a while to find Miu Miu. By the time we got there, it was just about 11:00, and everything was closed at that time. Bummer.
There was this gigantic sign and carpet on the streets just outside of YSL that was up for grabs. I desperately wanted to take it back to hang on my dorm wall, but there was no way that I could have taken it back. I think a few guys claimed it in the end.
Louis Vuitton window display.

After 11, there weren't many places left to go. We bumped into a big group of kids from our school, and they had a little more luck with meeting celebrities than we did.

The only shop that we could find that wasn't closed yet was the Apple store, so we sat around for a bit. I had no idea the Apple store was open 24 hours a day. It doesn't seem that necessary, though. Convenience stores I can kind of understand.
By the time we got back, it was past midnight, and I still had homework to do and a classes to go to in the morning. Being out is a good experience, though. More planning into next year.

Love, Kaia

These pictures are gorgeous =]
I especially love the one of you down on your hunkers =]
I always have to do the whole 'find a table the right height, run over before the timer goes...' thing. Bit of a pain =]

It looks like you enjoyed your night =]
