Sure, opening your thin wallet for designer clothes you dont really need strikes many as being an inappropriate use of funds. But thats why its fortunate that retailers know that peer pressure and alcohol can go a long way in lowering inhibitions. ShopSwagg Inc. has partnered with Pangaea Lounge and Gryphon Nightclub in Hollywood to present the ultimate girls-night-out experience, Fashion Night Out South Florida, hosted by former Miss Florida U.S.A. Jessica Rafalowski . From 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, enjoy music by DJ Meesh, cocktails, and hors doeuvres while browsing more than 35 designers, boutiques, and beauty experts merchandise, including Apricot Lane Boutique and J.R. De Bellard, with sales up to 75 percent off.
Advance general-admission tickets start at $20, but get the $50 VIP tickets instead, since they come with open bar privileges. Last-minute stragglers pay $75 at the door at Pangaea Lounge & Gryphon Nightclub at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (5711 Seminole Way, Hollywood.) Visit shopswaggfl2010.eventbrite.com.
