My girlfriends and I decided to attend a networking event, hosted by Daily Addict founder, Carrie Choo. It was an Autumn/ Winter Tuesday evening, we headed to the event, hosted by Merivale and Daily Addict, Xchange, a series of weekly forums for spirited debate, lively conversation and ladylike luxury.
Hosted in the den, ivy’s opulent lounge bar, Xchange will facilitate a coming together of minds – over a glass of champagne – with some of Australia’s leading ladies, hand selected as speakers covering such topics as fashion, food and wine and women in business.
The Den is an opulent space with Laura Ashley-style furnishings and a mish-mash of style and glamour that epitomises art deco design and comfortable surroundings. It is frequented by the cool crowd, which I find can be a little off-putting (Nothing makes me madder than a pretentious person that thinks they’re a cut above).
Back to the event at hand… From 6.30pm until 8.00pm, ladies will enjoy complimentary canapés each week along with $10 Chandon flutes and cocktails.
The particular event that I attended took place on Tuesday 17 May 2011– ‘The substance of style: What is it and how can you get it?’. The witty panel consisted Kristen Denny from Get Stylized and Deefusion Project and Jodie Fox from Shoes of Prey.
We talked capsule wardrobes, high-street vs. Designer and much, much more. To top it all off, we all walked away with a $100 DVF voucher – scream! Good times!!!
If you fancy heading to check it out for yourself, I’d highly recommend it! Visit www.xchangesydney.com.au, phone 02 9240 3000 or follow @xChangeSydney on Twitter for upcoming event information.
