I’ve been home for 2 days now and I keep asking myself, did that really just happen?
It still feels so surreal. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am for this incredible experience.
After having traveled for nearly 30 hours, I thought I’d pass out right away in the hotel room, but when I saw the goodie bags, my heart jumped and the adrenalin kicked in. I let out multiple shrieks and ooohhhs and aaahhhs and couldn’t believe the generous and cool gifts I was given.
I was quite nervous meeting the other members (♥♥♥@golestaneh @nookiefime @voguevictim @pocaqooka @roza-guianna @frou-frou @pearlsandstars @mrs-box @bittersweet89 @sherbetfountain @loeswhite ♥♥♥) and the Polyvore staff, but that feeling quickly passed as I was met with such warmth and genuine interest. I loved hearing everyone’s stories and how they came to love Polyvore as much as I do. I wish we could have spent even more time together. It felt nice being surrounded by like-minded people who share similar interests and passions and creative aspirations.
The next day we all drove down to the Net-a-Porter headquarters. Walking through the halls was such a treat for the eyes; the prominent black and white colors, the rich and modern decor, the superbly dressed people everywhere.. Everything was just exquisitely beautiful. I tried to take it all in and take mental pictures of the entire place.
Meeting and listening to the designers was an unreal experience. I certainly do not meet such accomplished people every day, and to have had the opportunity to listen to somebody like Erdem and Nicholas Kirkwood was overwhelming, inspiring and made me reflect on my own life. THANK YOU for that.
Did I mention my skin looks 5 years younger after getting a Natura Bissé facial? Cause it does.
I got so much out of this trip; far beyond the fashion aspect. All these years of pouring my creativity into this incredible website didn’t go unnoticed; and to be rewarded in such a generous way really moves me.
I can’t thank you enough - @polyvore and @netaporter – for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
