DMV’s go-to Guide to FNO 2012

Sooo I started work plus had school, then well let’s see my laptop won’t charge. With that being said I have been M.I.A.!!! apologies!

I am using my husbands computer and he is a stickler about downloading things to his computer. So, I have to be easy on the pictures until I get my laptop fixed.
Well the time is here that every fashionista loves…..FNO and Fashion Week. I can’t help out too much on where you should be for NYFW, however, you can sit behind the computer and watch here. The best thing ever and you feel as if you are at the show, it’s truly as good as it gets if you can’t get in any shows. On this youtube channel you can even rewatch shows that have previously showed.

Now FNO is Thursday, Sept. 6, 2012, WORLDWIDE.

I live in the DMV (DC metro area- DC, MD, VA) so here is a list of places and details of the events that you should make it to your FNO go-to itenerary.
