September is still two days away, but we've officially got fall on the brain — and the buzz around next Thursday's Fashion's Night Out events is only boosting our anticipation for the upcoming season. We've got a full roundup of all things FNO coming down the pipeline, but we wanted to give you a little sneak peek at what is, in our book, the must-visit event of the night: the Hu's Wear and Hu's Shoes sales (hosted by your very own D.C. editor!).Amazing items from the store's spring '12 and fall '11 inventory are marked down by 80% — that's right, 80%. Think Lanvin, Balenciaga, The Row, Isabel Marant, all insanely discounted — it's going to be a literal madhouse, but we can guarantee you it will be worth it. We stopped in yesterday to curate a rack of our favorite pieces that are oh-so-perfect for D.C. ladies (and, ahem, bought a few things for ourselves) — click through for the highlights from both stores.
And, if you're just dying to get in first, you can score a $45 VIP ticket to shop the sale from 5 to 7 p.m. from Gilt City. When: Thursday, September 6, from 5-9 p.m.
Where: Hu's Wear, 2906 M Street NW, 202-342-2020; Hu's Shoes, 3005 M Street NW, 202-342-0202.
