Tonight (9/10) is Fashion's Night Out in New York City. Hundreds of participating retailers across the city will be open after-hours, in a citywide effort to restore consumer confidence and have fun while doing it. Many retailers will take clothing donations for AIDS-related charities in the city.
There's something nice about shopping at night--perhaps it's because many of us do indeed feel more confident at night than we do at strange hours of the afternoon.
I tend to make better purchases in the evening than I do during the day.
