It seemed like it was Fashion Friday Night Out last week as the FBH Philadelphia Fashion Week hosted their 2nd night of runway delectable’s in Northern Liberties and I found myself  running to a few spots in town.

I knew it would be a fun night of fashion as I ran into Sabir Peele as I exited the bus. Sabir is the founder and creative director of the popular Men’s Style Pro blog, where
he models the latest in men’s fashion and doles out advice. It’s a family affair as his wife takes all the photos for the site. Recently he came out with his own shoe line, which he tells me is doing well.

Mike and I hit Kembrel first for their one year anniversary.

Kembrel has two stores in the City, the other is near 12th and Locust. They sell men’s and women’s clothes and accessories. I saw a lot of great shirts, for Mike, cause you know I only wear black.

Katie English and Christie Honigman arrive to go party hopping with us.  These two gals could have their own blog with the styles they wear every day.

The gift bag is coming back. During the height of the recession, gift bags seemed to have disappeared, now they’re back. That’s a good sign.

hourly light and sound show.
