A few weeks ago, I was invited to a top secret event, held at the Museum of Nature. All I knew was that Metro Ontario was sponsoring a dinner and Jessica Mulroney was the guest of honour. The event photographer, Katherine Holland was gracious enough to send her photos for me to share!
I was greeted with smiling faces and offered a glass of bubbly as soon as I got to the cocktail area in the cave at the museum. Right away, I knew I was in good hands. Then, I do a double take… Is that
Rachel Zane Maghan Markle I see by the dinosaurs? It can’t be! It was 🙂
You all know that I am a huge fan of Rachel Zane’s corporate wear and have even made reference to her style in my post “What’s a Capsule Wardrobe and Why you Need One?“. Meghan was very sweet and patient with my embarrassing fan girl moment. I get so shot up with nerves that my instinct is to cry… Control yourself woman! I need to get better at meeting famous people if I am going to be in the biz (plant seed here). Luckily, I worked up the courage to introduce myself to Jessica at the end of the night and also managed to snap a quick picture!
Metro Ontario sponsored the elegant meal prepared by the chefs from the Westin Hotel. The dinner was lovely, and I am sad that I don’t remember now how everything tasted. I just remember that everything was decadent, delectable and delicious! I admire Metro’s commitment to supporting the community and look forward to seeing the impact of the changes brought on by their new corporate direction. Listen up people- Metro is reinventing themselves, and they are here to stay!
My life came #fullcircle today when I met @meghanmarkle in person at the @metroontario dinner! I’ve said it before in my #capsulewardrobe post that #RachelZane is my #corporatewear crush! I was so nervous when I approached her, I am not good at #fangirl moments. I get all shaky and have the urge to cry! Megan was very sweet and kind. We chatted about #Suits, about my curvy blog, and about her new @reitmans campaign and I even gave her my business card! Megan commented that my outfit was “very Rachel”. Then I asked to take a #selfie… Here’s the shaky result! #meandmymetro ##Ottawa #picoftheday #photooftheday #ottawastyle #ottawafashion #fashionblogger #canadianfashion #celebrity
