My favorite parts about Diner En Blanc include:
It's always fun to find a new white dress to wear for the event.
The guidelines state that you have to wear all white and silver accessories are allowed. I love to see what everyone is wearing. I usually buy at least 2 dresses and then choose my favorite one to wear. I liked this one with the fun ruching for this year.
This year, I also went and had my hair done for the event, which was fun. My stylist is Dan from Pret A Porter Salon in La Mesa, and I think he did a great job.
Between the dancing and the secret location, I didn't have many curls left by the end of the evening!
BTW, William always gets compliments on his white paisley vest, which I bought for him last year!
The Secret Location
One of the most fun parts of this event is speculating about the secret location. You gather together at a starting point and then a bus takes you to the event. Well, it's usually a bus. Last night, it was a trolley instead!
We thought we would head north but then the trolley went south!
And we soon learned that the 2022 Secret Location was the downtown pier, a gorgeous location on the water with a beautiful view of downtown San Diego.
We were able to carry our drinks around the venue with us, and at one point, we were dancing while holding a glass of red wine (which remarkably, we managed not to spill on our white outfits.).
The live music was my favorite, and they played so many fantastic dance songs (although, we didn't hear our favorite, September, by Earth, Wind and Fire.)
DEB marks a good transition from summer to fall. Here in Southern California, we don't have a huge change in temperatures, so it's nice to mark the season change by events.
I think that this story will also mark the end of my Summer Blog. I've enjoyed writing about our summer adventures here, so I think I'll start the fall blog with my next entry.
