New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This being the fourth year of Fashion's Night Out, most retailers are on board with the event. Expect a lot of DJs, some drinks and discounts—and, from a select few shops, free stuff. We've combed through the official FNO site listings and our own overstuffed inbox to bring you the night's best freebies, from fortune tellers (it's a big night for that industry) to faux tattoos to manicures. For more FNO guides, make sure to click over to our list of the best block parties and the top shopping center events.

1. Alice + Olivia (134 S Robertson Blvd; 6—11pm): Stacey Bendet knows how to throw a party. Stop by for a braid bar, manicurists, a charm bracelet station, a (faux) tattoo booth and aura and palm readers.

2. Kelly Wearstler (8440 Melrose; 6—10pm): An NCLA polish expert will be in residence, offering four different nail art designs based on patterns from Kelly's fall 2012 collection.

3. Christian Louboutin (650 N Robertson Blvd; 6—9pm): As previously stated, psychics are proving popular at this year's FNO parties. Louboutin, for instance, will have tarot card readers offering private readings to guests for the occasion.
