Sorry for not posting in a few days, been under the weather recently after getting my wisdom tooth removed. Ouch!
I was fortunate to be invited to the Diane von Furstenberg store opening in Bellevue on the 29th of June.
I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to spend any time with my mum and grandma, so I decided it would be a nice treat to them to a lovely night out. The moment we walked in we were greeted with champagne, yummy cocktails, and hor d’oeuvres. The shop was impeccably decorated and the ladies who greeted us were very stylish in their wrap dresses.
I’ve always been fascinated with Diane von Furstenberg, she’s been a strong woman with a longevity in the fashion industry that can only be described as mind blowing. She is known for creating the wrap dress, which just celebrated its 40th anniversary, and empowering women to be successful whilst feeling confident. If you want to know more about this wonderful lady then you should really read her biography. It’s a perfect bath tub read.
Fellow blogger Cassandra Laville was helping host the party and I love her blog. When I first moved to Seattle I scoured the internet for bloggers who knew their way around Seattle and I was obsessed with Coco and Kelley. Elle magazine was also helping throw the extravaganza and like great hosts they gave us little goody bags. There was also a photobooth with lots of fun props that allowed us to be silly, took me straight back to the 90s.
We had a fantastic time and I even purchased my first DVF dress!! Look at all the colors and patterns, can be styled so many ways. It’s perfect for the office and then out for cocktails with the ladies, which is perfect with my hectic schedule. My mother got two dresses which she adores and my grandmother could not stop giggling…maybe from the 3 glasses of champagne.
Welcome to Seattle Diane von Furstenberg, we’re so happy you’ve joined us!
