Last week I invited you to the Purple Lab Fashion's Night Out party. Today, the recap.

Fashion's Night Out was an epic night in NYC. After months of down economy blues and credit card probation, every store busted out full-on bashes to celebrate retail and shopping fever.

We took over Scoop Street in the Meatpacking district, conveniently located across the street from DVF and around the corner from Stella and Tory. The best foot traffic I could ask for.

For five hours, we doctored the windows (we got to decorate all three), thanks to Sarah Sparkles, a set designer/jewelry designer/sparkle lover, and my husband Todd who personally stuck all of the vinyls with our logos on the windows, strung our boxes from the ceilings, and schlepped about two dozen boxes - and three tables - to the store, while the Purple Labbies (i.e. interns) pounded the pavement, wearing Flashdance style Purple Lab tees and armed with purple feather enhanced cigarette trays to hand out invitations and show off Huge Lips Skinny Hips.

With Colin Asare-Appiah, a suave Brit with a smooth bald head, manning bar (over 1,000 U'Luvka vodka lychee martinis were served!) and bloggess Charu of Butterflydiary.com serving up vegan (and delicious - don't let the vegan fool you) cupcakes from her new company Cupcake Republic (they were demolished in the first 30 minutes - hundreds of them), and the lovely Veronica Varlow starring in the main window, blowing kisses and flirting all night long, the store was jammed.

I mean jammed.

DJ Lips had two turntables and a microphone - not to mention crystal-encrused lip print head phones and a mean playlist (think The Jimmy Choos by Chester French, Runnin by Doman & Gooding, and Love Game by Lady Gaga).

And the night lingered until well after closing. Wish you were playing in this group of revelers with us.

Until next week!

Mwah!
