Normally there is a waitlist of thousands (over 33k this year to be exact) to get in, so when I received my media invite, I was thrilled! I was also a little sheepish as I do think the event, with all its rules, is a bit douchey and a way for douchy people to rub their exclusive "coolness" in people's faces, but I guess I am more okay with it if I'm one of those people?? Argh.
Anyhoo, it was a beautiful Vancouver evening when I skipped out of work in my all white outfit and trained my way over to this:
Everything was beautiful! The decor, everyone's outfits, the clear and gorgeous surroundings - it felt super elegant and not nearly douchy at all.
Now who says Vancouver is a boring city?
