Vogue's Fashion Night In - Tonight!

Happy 1st November! What better way to celebrate as the chill sets in, than in the comfort of your own home with Vogue's Fashion Night In? Following the success of September's Fashion Night Out, the fashion powerhouse that is Vogue returns alongside approx. 200 stores for the online equivalent. Anticipate collection launches, discounts, expert fashion advice, hourly prizes, giveaways, free shipping and more! All retailers will donate a fixed amount per purchase to KidsCo, who provide practical, emotional and educational support to London's inner-city children. An ever better reason to stay at home on a Monday night. From 5pm until midnight, you can browse and shop, helped along by Vogue's live blog or Vogue on Twitter. You don't need to live in London (or the UK) to take part, although some of the 'free delivery' incentives are UK-focused. Here are my picks for this fashionable and fun night ahead:

Anya Hindmarch
One of my most coveted of handbag collections, every season (or, as Anya says "moment in your life"), I will be visiting this beautiful online store tonight for a chance to order the leopard Carker, before anyone else. Vogue will also be running 'Anya's Online Treasure Hunt' around their website. Take part to win Anya's 'Night in Kit' and Marano glitter clutch!

Excitedly anticipating their press day this week, Anthropologie is a personal favourite shopping destination; you could leave me in one of their huge, homely and sweet-smelling stores and pick me up a few hours later. Online not as good as the real thing? Well, their site comes close. Their NYC video showcasing this season's 'looks' is artistic and unique, while the site's overall appearance is as similar as possible to the real thing. Tonight, Anthropologie is launching an exclusive collection of three Anna Sui dresses, plus a retrospective book to celebrate 30 years of Sui. Visit Vogue's site for a special code, which also gives you free shipping tonight.

If you've seen my post on this delicious lingerie brand, it needs no further introduction (if not, visit here)! They are also offering free shipping tonight and are firmly on my Christmas list.

Chinti and Parker
An ethical, beautiful brand where you'll find all the basics you need, with a little luxury. Their strapline, 'conscious cloth' is accentuated by each item's label, which bears a checklist to show what was achieved in its production, e.g. 'Organic fabric' or 'made in the EU'. From stunningly simple knitwear, to t-shirts (the label started with the search for the elusive 't') and baby clothes, this label is one to watch. And, with every purchase tonight, you'll receive a free black rib tank!

A fantastic site, which solves the eternal "I have nothing to wear" girl-conundrum. Girl Meets Dress offers a rental service (and sells a small selection) of designer dresses, which most of us wear in our dreams, not our daily lives. If you have an extra-special party or wedding to attend, the site is well worth a peek  swoon. You can borrow dresses for 2 or 7 days, reserve three at a time and also rent accessories. An online store only, Girl Meets Dress ships to UK and Europe. Hervé Léger, here I come! For Fashion Night In, there will be a chance to win Mr Léger's latest fragrance. You will also receive a 10% discount and can view GMD's new dedicated online boutiques: The Party Dress Boutique and The Wedding Boutique.

Jenny Packham
For all you brides out there looking for inspiration, Jenny's Spring/Summer 2011 collection is sublime. Delicate, different, divine. With gorgeous ready-to-wear collections and accessories alongside, it's definitely worth a visit tonight, as Jenny offers 15% off. Anyone who spends over £300 will be automatically entered into a competition to win a dress up to the value of £2,000. Good luck!

Clever make-up concept site, My Face.Cosmetics, takes you on a tutorial and selects products for you, which will suit your skin tone. Deemed the 'closest thing to having your own professional make-up artist', My Face.Cosmetics was created with the help of the world's top make-up artists, so products are of a high-quality. Enjoy this fun, interactive site tonight and receive a free Lil'Bling Chrome nail varnish, with purchase of any Blingtone eyeshadow.
