I just adore these images I’m showing you today. For a few reasons… one being that they were shot by one of my dear friends and esteemed photographer Viranlly Liemena. Second being their of a dress designed by one of my favorite designers and last reason being they were taken at one of the most unique and ambient events I’ve ever been to.
Last Thursday I attended the Vancouver edition of Diner En Blanc. I passed on my invite to the event for the last two years because I just didn’t understand what all of the fuss was about. You have to pay to dress up and bring your own food, tables and settings? Absurd. With that said, I can’t wait until next year!
It was such a wonderful evening with 3200 of my closest friends (ha!) and it surpassed my expectations. Now, I don’t have any prior years to compare it to so as my first DEB, I was pleasantly surprised. Across the board, it is decidedly an event not to be missed!
I wore my Melissa Araujo dress that you may remember from my Street Scout feature. This time, I took a different approach to it. Instead of wearing it with the mesh X in the front, I turned my dress around and wore the X in the back. I added a silver Element 7 body chain to the front and voila! A new dress is born!
There are many more photos from the event, once I get my hands on them I’ll most definitely share them with you. In the meantime you can find some on my Instagram and Twitter at @RandasSalloum and with the hashtags #DEBVancouver and #DinerEnBlancVancouver.
On a sidenote, I should have known that at DEB I would run into at least ONE guy that I’ve seen/dated in the last 6 months. Of course it had to be the last one to break my heart. I ran into the “The Best Friend Of My Friend’s Boyfriend”. He was with his mother and it was actually pretty nice to see him. Funny enough, the last time I spoke to you guys about him it was a post with this same dress. Weeeiiiiirrddd!
