Remember my post of 5 ways to get the most out of your Polypore account? Well, it wasn’t all talk. This time last week, I had the opportunity to meet some of the awesome women behind your favorite fashion social media site plus other community members. Here’s all the details on the 3-hour dinner plus the branded swag bag!
Instead of a runway or behind a screen, we all met at a family-style table in the back of Baker & Co. in the West Village (NYC). The Italian restaurant seems small from the entrance but believe me when I say everY detail was worthy of your Insta. Glass french doors marked the entrance to a sweet patio detailed with greenery along the sides and soft, low lighting. If that wasn’t enough to get you swooning, there was a branded Polyvore jacket in each community member’s size, hanging on the backs of our chairs. (Shown above and I can’t wait to wear it this fall!)
Once we sat down and ordered, every plate tasted incredible! There were pizzettes with specked ham and figs as well as others with buffalo mozzarella and concentrated tomato. (I also highly recommend the farm chicken with truffle fries!)
The only thing better than the food was the company. I had the pleasure of meeting the PR and Community leads among others behind the fashion site as well as this year’s Style Insiders! Savannah and Nina are both still in college and more than sweet! (Find out about them or catch their Fashion week adventures here!) Of course, everyone was impeccably dressed and easy to talk to. We all chatted with the girls seated closest to us for about three hours!
At the end of the meal, we were treated to Polyvore gift bags filled with branded hair ties and headphones! (I bet you can tell how excited I was and still am!)
