We were also bummed to have missed the Fashion's Night Out party at TOMS Shoes, co-hosted by TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie and Trovata designer John Whitledge. As we mentioned last week, the duo hosted a "family reunion" whereby guests dressed up as their favorite pop-culture family and took photos to win a prize. Blackburn and Sweetzer reports: "The ‘Family Night’ theme did not disappoint with people going all out dressed as the Addams Family, the Flintstones, even ‘Octomom’ made an appearance." The winning family—and recipient of a $1,000 TOMS / Trovata shopping spree—still hasn't been announced, but our vote goes to whoever made the sweet Flintmobile at right. [Blackburn and Sweetzer]
