Tokyo's Fashion Night Out 2013

Monday, September 16, 2013

I want to make a small interruption from the traveling posts, to share some pics from Tokyo's Fashion Night Out. It was the 3rd FNO I attended in Tokyo, and I feel it gets better and better. There is just no room to complain about free champagne, hors d'oeuvres, and drooling over insane fashion up close and personal.

 My husband and mini came along for the ride. Hey, It is never too early to introduce your little one to the art of Fashion. Walking down Omotesano Dori is like roaming an open air museum of beautifully tailored art.  I do have to chuckle to myself, thinking of pre-baby Chanyn. I was determined to do all of the things I "wouldn't be able to do" once I had a baby. I remember thinking last year's FNO was probably my last because I was convinced I'd be at home covered in vomit, with a messy bun and yoga pants with no way out...ever.  Oh my, how I was misled by movies and teen drama TV!  Little did I know that my little Maya-chan would not only be my number one date choice of the night, but she ended up being the most photographed fashionista on the street. At least by Mommy :)

Altogether FNO in Tokyo, was pretty baby friendly. The fashion event didn't just see me with a stroller, actually loads of parents busted out their baby cars, while enjoying drinks and fashion with the family. This is why I love Japan so much. The store employees even helped me lift my "hummer" of a stroller into their store full of high fashion merchandise, and they did it with a smile and a bow. Love my city.

My fashion for the night was my version of "sophisticated sexy" (I know cliché), but in all fairness, the look isn't as easy as it sounds. It could go too demure and stiff, or uncomfortable sexy and look like cougar town, oh hell no. To be clear, I don't want to re-invent myself just because I had a baby, and now I must dress like a Stepford wife. However, I do want to find a balance between style and practicality. That doesn't mean hanging up the stilettos, but it may mean hanging up the bandage skirts and crop tops. Appropriateness is key, not just for the occasion, but also for the hat you will be wearing that night (in my case a Mom/Fashionista)

For the evening, I paired tailored, tapered trousers with a low back, gradient top and gray pumps.

Trousers: Zara
Top: Katie May
Pumps: Nicole Miller

 The humidity is still here and very real, and with that up goes my hair. I curled it with a large barrel curling iron and brushed it through with a flat brush and into a low pony. 
I have been sporting the cat eye-liner since freshman year of HS, so no one was happier when this came back into style. I use Makeup Forever's liquid liner and paired it with Mac cream shadow and YSL light pink lipstick.

Fendi's party was one of my favorites. The newest collection features little critters and monsters. You can find furry friends attached to bags or wallets and clutches with monster patchwork. Maybe not my favorite design but I find the thought and quirkyness likable.

One of the many treats of FNO is running into close friends. We love Auntie Junko
Armani's Fall/Winter Collections are all about Velvet. I love how polished and regal it can make a basic piece look. The deep berry hues are beautiful.

This feather piece. The end. WOW

TODS had a great party this year. Can you spot me with the ERGO baby carrier on? I have moved on from the Moby and the Ergo is my favorite at this age.

My two loves
