fashion night out

12.09.11






Sometimes I get so caught up yammering on with my friends, I forget to take pictures. What kind of blogger am I? And how could I forget? I walk around like a tourist with my Nikon 24/7. Either way, that’s exactly what happened on Thursday for Fashion Night Out. Too busy talking with Ana, Tania, Nicole and Ericka to stop and snap pics. Fortunately, the Rodeo Drive Committee hooked me up with pictures or else this post would have been a total dud. We had a great time. It was a gorgeous night to stroll Rodeo Drive with friends. We grabbed sliders and ice cream from the food trucks. Talked fashion, art, food and family life. Stopped at Chanel to get their La Rouge lipstick and fell in love with Valentino’s coats. The streets were lit up and alive with Cirque du Soleil performers and a Ferris Wheel. I was too busy enjoying the moment and the small moments in between. Some serious female bonding took place. It wasn’t until I got in the car that I notice I had a camera around my neck.

Thank you Becky for your lovely photos and the Donahue Group for hooking this all up.

I chuckled b.c I do this too! I “forget” that I’m working and chit chat, socialize away at “work” functions. I like to see this as a testament of a truly successful event, one where those in attendance feel satisfied and happy. Good thing for professional photos!

Let’s go together!! And take pics this time…at least u..I’m terrible at the picture-taking thing

Covering an event, taking the pics is my priority. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but if it’s not then I may end up with nothing at the end of it. Then what will my readers think?!

Perhaps you need to have a designated shutterbug along with you so you can have more time to chit chat, and what.
