Fashion's Night Out 2012: Where to go, what to do
Tonight marks the return of Fashion's Night Out, a yearly party where department stores and boutiques host a variety of free events, including beauty consultations, runway and trunk shows, giveaways, freebies, cocktails, and food -- all in the name of fashion, of course.
