Recap: "We Run The Night" in New York

Three week ago Eboyne' of Divine Influence PR hit me up on twitter asking if I was interested in coming up to attend "We Run The Night" in New York City. I thought about it, thought about my funds and said "hey, what the heck.. why not." I booked my ticket, got me a hotel room for one night (who does that?) and made my way to the city that never sleeps. Upon hoping out of my cab and into the venue, I was greeted by the lovely volunteers they had working the check in table. After I was properly checked in, I went to mingle with some of the other press there while we waited for the Special Guests to walk accross the red carpet and pose in front of the step and repeat for photos (It was kind of hard getting really great pics with so many others taking photos also, but I did my best.) But yall know me, I'm all about capturing "The Outfit."

I was going to head to the same event, but being in Philly the commute was a bit much for me that night. Sounds like you had a blast! And I love seeing what everyone is wearing.
