Last Minute Fashion's Night Out Picks


Are you ready for the fourth annual Fashion's Night Out Over 500 cities in 19 countries are participating in the world's biggest shopping party.  And here in New York City, there are so many fab in-store events to choose from, it's hard to figure out what shops to pop in.  

We gravitate towards those with free bubbly, grub and goodies. So here's a short list of Everything She Wants' midtown and downtown FNO picks:

Midtown

1459 Broadway (at Times Square)
6-10 pm

Get 30 percent off all day on your fave LOFT fashions. Then at 6 p.m. the FNO party gets started with a live DJ and flutes of prosecco.  Plus, get a limited edition tote with a purchase of $75 or more.

80 West 40th Street (across from Bryant Park)
6-10 pm

Shop 'til you drop while 80s jams are pumping and slumber party chick flicks are playing during this ultimate slumber party.  And that's not all -- nosh on sweet treats and enjoy free manicures, hair styling at a braid bar, charm bracelet stations, tattoo booths and palm and aura readings. This Girl's Night Out during FNO sounds so bitchen,  we may not make it downtown.
Soho
543 Broadway (between Prince and Spring Streets)
6-11 pm

Attention, shoe-nistas, Carlo Pazolini is the place to be on FNO.  Dance the night away to the beats of DJ Michael Scanlon and sip champagne (okay, who are we kidding -- pound back a few, they're free!) at this recently opened Soho store. Take photos of yourself rocking the latest fall styles via a digital photo booth, and everyone who tries on a pair of Carlo Pazolini shoes will score a special tote bag. 
Gant
3 FNO parties
645 Fifth Avenue, 353 Bleecker and 25 Prince Street
6-11 pm
Do you like free stuff? Duh. Do you like GANT? Who doesn't? Combine these two passions on Fashion's Night Out, GANT will be hosting an in-store contest and one lucky winner will win a $1,000 shopping spree. You can make it rain..in clothes! For everyone else there is a solid consolation prize: 15 percent off all goods, all night. Available at all GANT store locations in NYC, including the Bleecker Street, Prince Street and 5th Avenue locations. Free beer will be flowing at the downtown locations and all will be open until 11 pm.

Meatpacking District
Target
441 W. 14th Street
6-10 pm

New Yorkers are starved for a good Target (the Harlem and Brooklyn Tar-jay stores pale in comparison to their well-stocked and well-mannered suburban counterparts), so we can't wait for this pop-up store -- open for one night only! The pop-up will feature goods from the store's new designer collaborations before they launch nationwide.

874 Washington Street
6-11 pm

Solange Knowles will be spinning the hipster soundtrack. Cocktails will be flowing.  Delicious bites will be served.  And the store's namesake designer, Diane von Furstenberg, will be there doling out fashion advice.  This is bound to be a madhouse, so we advise you get there early!

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

Change Your Diet to Reduce Stress: 3 Easy Dietary Tips for Women

April is Stress Awareness Month .  But strategies to reduce and manage stress are welcome any time of the year.   Studies show that women are more likely  than  men to report high levels of stress, and for African American women  chronic or daily stress is even more problematic.  While we tend to think of approaching stress management from an emotional wellbeing and physical health standpoint, we don't often associate making  dietary  changes with reducing stress and anxiety.   While scheduling an appointment with your  primary  care doctor and seeking help  from a therapist or spiritual advisor may still be necessary to help address the underlying reasons for why you're feeling stressed and the degree to which your  stress  affects your life, here are a few food for thought tips from  Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RDN, CDCES, CDN, nutrition consultant and author Diabetes Guide to Enjoying Foods of the World .  Swap your  morning  coffee with a cup of warm tea .   “The key to
