A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to attend the Dîner en Blanc Dallas which I was hosted by Lincoln Motor Company. It was a very much an experience outside of my element as one had to wear all white and be outside. White is a color I never wear—hello foundation transfer and being outdoors, well is definitely something I tend not to do especially while engaging in a nice dinner.
I made a beauty mission impossible move by finding an outfit while in the backwoods of Arkansas. I was invited out within days of the event and made it happen. To my surprise, I was able to locate a quick inexpensive dress from Rainbow that was on clearance just waiting for me and shoes for under 50 bucks. I also made a mad dash to be ready after finding out my car was in need of the ER.
It was a beautiful sight seeing so many people dressed to the nines in all white and enjoying what I like to call an adult picnic. The concept of Dîner en Blanc started back 30 years ago in Paris. It was a very high-class event which entails one to bring their own picnic items that must be pristine and all white. Even the attire must be of the best levels possible with creativity yet must still err on the side of elegance.
The ambiance that Lincoln provided was elegant that included an upper echelon menu and beautiful décor. I enjoyed being swept off in a Lincoln MKX to the secret site, which happened to be one of Dallas’s most enchanting outdoor wonders, the Dallas Arboretum. Instead of being in hyper blogger mode, I allowed myself to enjoy the beauty of the event.
It’s always a gift and a pleasure to attend such events as it allows me to engage in what my city has to offer. After a hard week of travel and having to put my car on life support, this allowed me to come out of comfort zone and relish in feeling pretty and being around pretty energy. Thank you, Lincoln Motor Company and Dîner en Blanc!
