I was one of the many thousands of people in Vancouver on the waitlist for the magical event that is Diner en Blanc this year, and I was pretty bummed when for the second year, I didn't make it to registration. I was mostly bummed because I had this gorgeous dress from Choies which I was hoping to have a reason to wear...
Thanks to the wonderful people at Mogo Money, they swooped in and saved the day, offering me and my mister a spot at the hotly anticipated event. We of course got to shopping right away for everything from a table and napkins to an all-white ensemble for the gentleman. We ended up thrifting his shirt and belt from Value Village and finding his pants and shoes from Winners, with the whole look totalling only $87! Plus, in case your wondering if those white pants are ever going to get worn again, I have plans to turn them into a pair of bf jeans ;)
On arrival, we set up our white table scape at the secret location - Canada Place - where Mogo welcomed us with pearly white balloons for the dinner celebration. As we sat there, drinking our wine and eating our home-made pesto pasta dish, I was in complete heaven listening to Ballad du Paris from Midnight in Paris as the sun went down. Once the sparklers came out, the night became even more magical!
The night made for some amazing people watching as well; it's funny that even with everyone in all-white, there such an incredible variety of fashions and individual styles to be seen, from extravagant headpieces to piled-on statement jewellery. And the Diner en Blanc performers were a sight to be seen too. Overall, just an awesome first time experience, thanks Mogo for bringing us along!
