|Sweet cupcake designed by Daniela Corte|
But there's no doubt that a walk from Alrington to Mass. Ave. will leave me cursing my sky-high wedges, in search of some plush seating and sweet treats to numb the pain. Thankfully, Kimpton Hotels is constructing an outdoor lounge at the midway point of Exeter Street. A brilliant idea, if you ask me!
I stayed at this Kimpton Hotel in New York during Fashion Week last year, and these guys have got serious style. Tonight's lounge will feature oversize white leather wing chairs; wide, tufted ottomans; dramatic, high-back citrus banquets; and natural wood accent tables. Forum is providing the food and drinks while local bands take the stage.
And, it just so happens, that just up the street is Sweet, a cupcakery that's hard enough to resist on any normal day. Tonight, though, the shop has collaborated with three local designers - Daniela Corte, Michael De Paulo and mike&ton - on adorable, fashion-inspired cupcake designs. The limited-edition cupcakes are $4 each and come in Red Carpet Red Velvet, Couture Chocolate and Vogue Vanilla. Plus, Sweet is giving out complimentary frosting shots from 6 to 8:30 for a sugar-fueled shopping recharge.

If you're in Boston tonight, let me know where you'll be. And, if not, have a wonderful Fashion's Night Out!
