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

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City

Watching the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater makes me proud to be a Black woman. This ballet company is graced by dancers of color who can tackle any technique or dance style. But whether the choreography is rooted in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop or ballet, they do it the Ailey way, which means they move with so much culturally rooted soulfulness and swag that I find myself marveling at their languid form and fierce footwork. In my lifetime, I've seen the Ailey company perform at least a dozen times and each time I picked a performance that included Mr. Ailey's beloved "Revelations." I will never grow tired of witnessing this jubilant homage to the Black Southern Baptist church. By the end I'm always standing, singing and clapping along with the rest of the audience's Amen chorus. Yes, rock a my soul in the bosom of Abraham ! Like most theatrical events and performing arts programs, this is Ailey's comeback season after going dark in 2020 due to

Spring Cleaning: Clean Out Your Closet and Earn Extra Cash

Remember clothing?  As much as we love our athleisure, we can still recall what it was like to wake up and put on something other than hoodies, T-shirts, joggers and leggings. And now that coronavirus vaccines are available and we're resuming some sort of normalcy, we look forward to traveling again and meeting up with fellow vaccinated family and friends for brunch and outdoor fun (still wearing masks and socially distancing in public spaces). We also look forward to refreshing our wardrobe.  But if you want to make room for new garments, it's time to declutter and find a new home for the clothes, shoes and accessories you haven't worn in a season. Donating to a thrift store or charitable organization is always a good option.  For certain items in new or nearly new condition, however, you can also earn some cash by selling them at a consignment shop.   Here are several e-commerce and retail consignment shops we love: thredUp  makes cleaning out your closet easy.  Simply re
