Words can't express how nice it is to be out and about after that awful cold! Yesterday's agenda included work and a media preview for Sancha Jewelry. That was followed by a wonderful cocktail party at the Room at the Bay in honour of Derek Blasberg and his new book, Very Classy. Between sips of white wine and wonderful conversations with people I hadn't seen in a long time or was just meeting for the first time, I took advantage of the Room's superior lighting and full-length mirrors to do the quick outfit shot you see above. Fuchsia lipstick, orange blouse, purple skirt: it's not a colour combination I've ever tried before, but I think that when worn with black the effect is nice without being glaringly bright.
Then it was off to Guu Garden for a late dinner, where Alicia, Monica, Jen, Jen's boyfriend David and I had a terrific time talking over sashimi, tuna tataki and udon. (Did I mention how wonderful it is to be able to eat something other than soup and Hall's lozenges? Because it really, really is.) Afterwards, I met up with the boy at the dance studio where he was rehearsing his mambo routine for his Vancouver International Salsa Festival performance.
Event recaps full of photos will have to wait until next week. Have a great weekend, lovely readers!
