The East Coast Bella Girls spent the evening in the city for Fashion’s Night Out. This is a night where, according to fashionnightout.com, “American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City. Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, ‘To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs.’”
As we drove towards Grand Central Station we passed what looked like a main tent for fashion week. Similar to tents we have seen on various fashion shows on TLC, MTV and CW. As we pass we whip out our cameras hoping to catch a glimpse of the atmosphere, which honestly, words don’t quite do justice. Cameras flashing and filming everywhere, outfits that can’t not catch your eye and heels that can’t not help girls carry themselves with an air of femininity and style.
As we circle around Grand Central Station looking for the perfect runway for Penelope to make her fashion week debut, we move our focus from fashion and celebrities to the Ciao Bella Blood Orange carpet. Thanks to JuicyJ, Coconutkate and the Grand Central Bella Guys for making this event a successful one! Despite the cold wind gusts and light rain we had a constant group of new and established Ciao Bella lovers.
Elle and I made it back just in time to see the exciting Georgia Tech vs. Clemson game. Being graduates of the University of South Carolina, we are pretty much supporters of any team playing Clemson. GA Tech came through in the end and it was a glorious end to an already exciting day.
From fashion to football, stilettos to cleats, you can always count on the East Coast Bella Girls for our delicious treats!
Love, Lauren and Elle
