Fashion's Night Out: Abbot Kinney

Happy Friday everyone,

Did you all get a chance to experience Fashion's Night Out this past Thursday? Here in Los Angeles there was a bevy of shows, events, store galas and late night happenings to consider!
We decided to make a go of it in Tanyas stomping ground, Abbot Kinney. Things were so hip here last September we figured, why not re-run? After drinks at Hal's Bar and Grill, we walked the main drag, checked out some boutiques, and then took a spin up to Main Street, Santa Monica to follow the buzz.
And what a great surprise! Like Toucan Sam we followed our thrifty but fabulous noses to a brand new, re-saler boutique called "The Closet". And they had some amazing finds. (Note the Gucci, studded clogs for fall)!
Inside, the owner of this new location was serving cocktails and yummies, and showing the best of the best of the best in re-sale garments and accessories! We couldn't resist the urge to splurge, or to jump into their celebratory, fashion photo booth!
This gal is a talented buyer, and so many goodies were totally affordable! I picked up a belt, a fall, denim inspired shirt, and Tanya found a fabulous pant I know she'll feature in November Grey quite soon. Just a hint of things to come... They're got a tropical theme!
For the evenings festivities, Tanya rocked this spaghetti looped dress which I'm crazy about, (see it again here) along with a vintage DKNY belt, some awesome bangles and a gorgeous, Chloe purse.
I wore my fave, vintage, pailletted top, (one of my first, true vintage pieces bought here last fall) along with a vintage, linen and cotton, pencil skirt. And since we decided to stay walk-ably comfy after a full day of work on both ends, T rocked biker booties and I wore Pour La Victoire, motocycle boots. We were in a great frame of mind having picked sensible shoes for the night!
Isn't this place pretty? We will be coming back soon and often to shop and blog and show you a whole, new thirfting avenue in the weeks to come.
Fashion's Night Out LA was great. But the most fashionable thing in the world, (that never goes out of style) is having a great friend to share it with!

Love, Noa B and Tanya D
