What with the San Bruno fire tragedy taking center stage, we forgot about something almost as dire: SF Fashion's Night Out. Yes, as NYC takes over the world with shiny new buttons, shoes, and slippers via their own fashion week currently in progress, San Francisco has its very own ode to style. And it's happening tonight!
The Chronicle's Carolyne Zinko complied a helpful list of sartorial things happening tonight. Let's pilfer her closet, shall we?
-- Saks Fifth Avenue: DJs from JE Models and Look Modeling Agency will spin in the fifth-floor Fashion Mix lounge; a fashion trivia contest will be conducted; rock-inspired informal modeling will take place; sketch artists will draw you into a fashion sketch at Chloe on the second floor; open until 8 p.m. 384 Post St.
Make sure you score some free cologne samples while you're there. We do. All the time. Shhh.
-- Saks Fifth Avenue men's store: On the fifth floor, Vessel nightclub creates fun with music and videos; refreshments will be served to set the tone while shoppers browse the latest collections. The party continues at Vessel, which opens at 8 p.m. for Saks customers participating in Fashion's Night Out - free admittance for two before 10:30 p.m. and one free drink (must be 21 or older). 220 Post St.
Refreshments = eating. Eating + fashion = groundbreaking.
-- Macy's Union Square: An appearance by Countess LuAnn de Lesseps from "The Real Housewives of New York"; open until 9 p.m. 170 O'Farrell St.
Did you hear that sound? That's the sound of our head imploding with titillation. And, yes, we will go Bieber fangirl on her ass is she sings (if you will) "Money Can't Buy You Class"
