My First Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Lisbon!
Where were you last night? It started wrong for me. The day before the event, we were 4 highly motivated! Then yesterday, everyone canceled. Urban temper! Never mind, I decided to go with my faithful companion, my Canon and a little newcomer, my new phone ; )
Already three years ago, I attended the Paris Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, Avenue Montaigne, more formal and … Much less relaxed than the Lisbon one which was very festive and friendly! It’s funny because it rained all day long (today too!), but the night was pretty hot!
From Principe Real To Barrio Alto: Everything Is More Beautiful At Night!
First stop in a great neighborhood, Principe Real full of people last night! Pictures 1 and 4: Embaixiada and picture 2: the coffee, bar and restaurant in Embaixiada, Le Jardin which overlooks a bohemian garden. Picture 3: Big up to the Carolina at 21 PR Concept Store, the coolest girl that night!
Picture 5 (below): nice projection on the facade of the CS Vintage Lisboa Hotel. Picture 6: the traffic! Picture 7: live music in Bairro Alto, apparently the audience enjoyed it. The music was outdated and the MC pretty bad (80s hits such as “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life”). Picture 8: the famous tram! And picture 9: the beautiful Museu de São Roque where I spent a long time.
The Great Surprise of The Evening: A Visit To The Museu de São Roque
When I told you that here the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is more than just a fashion event, thankfully otherwise I couldn’t stay for long! I took the opportunity to discover this rich religious art of the museum and the magnificent church, Igreja de São Roque Museum.
I enjoyed a private tour of the museum with the curators and guides. Picture 11 (below): the Igreja de São Roque and picture 12: one of the chapels of the church dating from the eighteenth century. Picture 10: the lovely courtyard with a soothing atmosphere, where a DJ played good eletro music.
In Chiado: Too Many People!
Unable to move in this dense crowd (picture 13)! And I couldn’t stand people to walk on my new Skechers Go Walk! Honestly I’m not a big fan of the look of these shoes (and I can’t understand why they are the big trend of this fall/winter)! But I love their incredible comfort: the soleplate takes the shape of the foot! A bless for this kind of night out (review in a future post)!
Bravely I went down to Santini, but looking at the line, I quickly forgot to have an ice cream! A nightmare to walk back to Bairro Alto, some great live Cuban music (picture 14) … How can people go shopping in these conditions?
