I was recently invited to the first Conscious Dinner in NYC (they have had them in different cities such as LA before, but will be starting them in NY now as well) last week and it was such a fun event I thought it would be fun to blog about it...and what I wore, of course.
The event was hosted by Integral Fitness and held at Tournesol Wellness, a space for holistic wellness including primary care benefits of everything from Reike practitioners to Herbologists, Yoga and Meditation, etc. As we checked into the event we went into the kitchen of the space downstairs and had a wonderful vegan meal including kombucha and coconut water stations, and a tea and herbal liquid elixir station where I bought some mushroom immunity and some sleep tea.
Afterwords we stepped upstairs and signed up for different rooms and experiences. Francisco and I and my friend Lindsey (who has an awesome new blog all about sustainable clothing) experienced everything from an improv room to Reike, Herbology, and a talk about being our truest selves. The other rooms also included astrological readings and sound therapy. It was so much fun!
My outfit incorporated a huge trend at the moment: velvet. In these Free People pants I always feel like a rockstar. I styled them with a silky H&M blouse and Free People silver rose and red suede tassel bolo tie which also looks great as a choker, and my Aldo studded booties I wear all the time. My new Rock Stud Valentino purse rounded out the outfit. It was a beautiful night for velvet since it is such a cozy fabric especially for the holiday season, and it feels festive for parties. Since this was a more casual party, velvet pants and a top felt just right. I also wear it in dresses, shorts, and tops. How do you wear it?
