If you're anything like me, you've planned and replanned your outfit for Fashion's Night Out but woke up this morning thinking "FNO is TOMORROW and I have no idea where I'm going!!" Fear not, after my morning epiphany I made sure to head over to the website and create my own personal itinerary. Last year I didn't venture outside of the Meatpacking District, but I will tempt fate this year starting in Soho and ending at Bergdorfs!
