Live Olive: Ready to Report FNO

Oh what to wear, what to wear? I am bustling about today, getting a fire-engine red mani-pedi, putting my hair up in smooth and elegant bun and standing in front of my shoe closet, pondering the life’s great question; which pair to show off this evening?

Because my dears, this is a very special evening. I am all a flutter inside with butterflies, as it is only a few mere hours before I host my very first ever, (and hopefully not last!) Fashion Night Out event!

So, should I don my sparkly Jerome Rousseau’s? My feathery Chrissie Morris’? And don’t even get me started on what to wear from there. Each and every one of the designers who will be by my side tonight are incredible in their own right.

Maybe I should bring an outfit from each and make a quick costume changes every 10 minutes?

These are the dilemmas a gal like me has!  But really and truly, I think I’m going to enter with one outfit and exit with another, just to be amazing – twice!

But don’t think for a minute I’ve gotten too wrapped up in myself not to remember the most important thing about tonight and that is to help the fine folks of the Garment Center keep designer duds made right here in the Big Apple!

But also, I DO have to look divine…I will be sure to keep you all abreast of the fabulousness occurring this evening.

Don’t forget to follow me, as I’ll be tweeting away!

Olive Loves: FNO Outfits

Okay folks, tomorrow is the big, big day!

I have a few more options for outfits to run by you, all culled from some of the fabulous designers who will be participating alongside me at the FNO event.  I need all my friends out there to help me decide what I should be sporting as host!

Shall it be the “Kate” blouse from Spoon, perhaps? In midnight black with the laser cut-out detailing? Ooh, so slinky and simple and luxe! Maybe I should match this elegant blouse with a classic pair of gold and pearl earrings from BB Jewels?

Top it off with a vibrant red python clutch from Primary NY? Or what about Primary NY’s “Kelly” dress in coral? Maybe to start the evening, then a costume change?

Oh my, it’s very overwhelming folks, to have this much gorgeousness to choose from.

As you might have noticed – yes, yes, yes! I am getting so very, very excited to play dress up and cavort about high in the sky with the beautiful people of the Big Apple.

Stay tuned for more…

Olive Loves: FNO Designer Selects

The big day is drawing near my dears and I am all in tizzy trying to decide what a gal should wear to this fabulous event. As you know, I am playing host to a very special Fashion Night Out evening and all eyes, ( well, most eyes, anyway…or at least a few eyes), will be on me.

So what’s a girl to wear?

Well, here’s the thing. I have the distinct pleasure of sharing hosting duties alongside some supremely talented designers, all of whom make the most lovely clothes and accessories, an array of items that would be absolute perfection to showcase at the event.

So what do you think readers? What shall is be?

A stunning dress from Dana Maxx, it’s red hot, racy shade offset but the sweetest white lace collar? Perhaps I could match that elegant ensemble with a stunning black and white lizard skin clutch from Michelle Vale?

Or should I go streetwear and edgy and stand out from the crowds, with a sassy pair of Ashley Arrow leggings from Brit NYC under a Boy Meets Girl Expedition Utility Dress?

Decisions, decisions, decisions….

Stay tuned, my dears, for more options. I’m going to need your help!

Olive Loves: Fashion Night Out

My dearest, darling readers.

As you know, I adore fashion.  Simply, utterly, overwhelmingly –  adore it.

In fact, I would go as far to say that dressing up and looking divine is one of life’s great pleasures. That is why I am over the moon, sweet friends, to announce that I have been asked to co-host a fabulous Fashion Night Out event, a grand and amazing evening of talented designers, sublime musical entertainment, and all the brightest and the best lights of New York City!  And all in the name of promoting the wonderful clothing and people of the city’s famous Garment District!

That’s right! We are going to have ourselves a ball, all in the name of keeping U.S. designers, American-made. Factories, suppliers, young talent – all of them need our support in making sure the Garment District keeps on keeping on in creating the highest quality clothing for gals like me to don, for events like this.

Take a look at the invite below and be amazed at the gathering of talent.

Am I nervous?

Yes.

Am I excited?

Yes.

Am I honored?

Truly.

I will be sure to keep you all in the loop on the star-studded, perfectly coiffed, fabulously dressed – days and night to come…
