If you are pregnant and plan to make it out to this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, one night a year (this Thursday, Sept 6) when stores open late, host parties and share their fall collections, there are certain things you need to know before you go. First Dress comfortably. You’re there to see all the latest fall fashions, maybe spot some celebrities, have some appetizers and hopefully pick up a gift bag or two — not be the focus of attention. There will be a lot of walking and standing in lines. I’d suggest going with something like:
A Button Down or Wrap Dress like this Amanda Uprichard Button-Up Belted Shirt Dress in Black that is easy to put on and pull off if you plan to try on pieces.
A pair of comfortable ballet flats like these Sam Edelman Felicia Ballet Flats
and carry a large shopper’s like tote to store any finds so you’re not schlepping about town carrying loads of bags like this one:
Stores can get very crowded and the less you have to carry around with you the better. Which brings me to my final tip. Bring some patience. There may be long lines, some pushing and pushy and aggressive people there so a positive and upbeat attitude will avoid you getting too frustrated and antsy.
If you are going to brave one of the busiest and excitable times of the year for the fashion industry, better be prepared for all that is in store— oh and the best tip of all is to have fun!
