party politics at the design exchange

The Design Exchange puts on events about once - twice a month inside their building. After seeing an email from them about the Party Politics event which was an evening filled with cool beats and a clothing swap, my girlfriends and I couldn't say no! This soirée was on a Wednesday evening which was the perfect day to help break up the work week.

Fun fact about these events - there is an open bar all evening

Before the event, we all had dinner at Mercatto at Bay and Adelaide which was delicious. There's nothing like a round of Negronis and pizza or pasta to start off the evening!

design exchange \\ rise up party

After attending the DX annual party for the first time last year, Darcie and I were hooked right away. We both bought passes to the Design Exchange which allowed us to have discounted tickets for events and attend certain seminars for free. If you visit this place often, I would look into getting a membership (it's nearly half off for students!).

We met the legendary Frank Toskan who is one of the founders of MAC Cosmetics! He is honestly one of the most genuine people I've ever met. 

The bartenders were so sweet, they let us take home a handful of flowers at the end of the evening!

dinner at a vineyard in california

The company I work for hosted a lovely dinner at Cline Cellars Vineyard and Winery in Sonoma Country, California this past summer. We were able to wander around the grounds and view the perfect paths lined with luscious trees, beautiful blooms and an oasis like watering hole. 

Naturally, I was wearing my gorgeous faux snake skin Vionic sandals to keep me comfortable yet stylish throughout the whole evening.

Here are a few of the awesome team members!
