If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m a homebody (sloth). Just one of the amazing things that has come along with blogging is the opportunity to go to some amazing events! And while my natural tendency is to politely decline the invitations, this year is all about stepping out of my comfort zone! Here is a sneak peek into some things I forced myself to do!
FUZE at the Vancouver Art Gallery– Even though people may assume I’m a social butterfly, I’m actually uncomfortable in some social events, especially when I know I am out of my element. Enter the world of modern and performance art… I’m not really a fan of modern art per se… art in general I guess! I kind of thought it was just going to be a big party at the art gallery!
There were some cool exhibitions and there were some strange ones.. They have a few of these a year, so if it sounds like your kind of thing, make sure to check it out!
Eco Fashion Week– Another event I attended was part of Eco Fashion week. They had a few different events over the weekend and I was lucky enough to attend the closing one on closing night, at the Vancouver Museum.
Designer Evan Biddell took on Value Village’s 81 pounds challenge. The number 81 pounds is based on the volume of textiles and clothing consumers toss out annually which is just insane! I couldn’t believe the beautiful pieces he had made out of repurposed material! It looked like a real collection and every piece was made with such detail and care. What a great way to raise awareness of our wasteful ways!
I was excited because it was my first fashion event, but I was a little nervous because I had no idea what I was doing! I was super happy there was complimentary wine and cheese, and I even ran into a few of my blogger girlfriends!
Although both events weren’t necessarily my thing, I’m proud of myself for getting uncomfortable and doing things I would never normally do! What’s that saying??? Life starts at the end of your comfort zone?? And yes I wore the same jumpsuit to both events… Whatever
