An Afternoon at Dior #LoveDior
I had the best luck,and when I say luck perhaps it was in the stars that I was invited to attend a Dave Lackie event celebrating Christian Dior for his #LoveDior superstitions and Fortunes event held in none other then what I like to refer to has heaven on earth or more commonly known as the Dior Cosmetic Counter. I’ve always said Christmas in an iconic Department Store at Christmas time sends me right back in time to the seventies when I could barely see over the counter but revelled in all its glory. The white and silver trees that filled the first floor made such a lasting impression on me that I today have a white a two silver trees in my home at Christmas. Talk about beauty creating an impact.
Here we are forty five years later and I am at the Dior Counter in a department store feeling all that warm and fuzzy feelings again. This was an event created and hosted by Dave Lackie,Canada’s first and foremost leading beauty expert who shares his knowledge on Cityline monthly. He also is Editor and creator of his own Beauty magazine called Beauty Departure in which he shares insightful articles.
Luck and the stars alignment along with Dave’s invitation I was fortunate enough to attend this unique experience where he provided a fascinating talk with Natalie Atkinson Canada’s Fashion Historian and writer for the Globe and Mail along with Fortune Teller Dawn of Ki Sensations ,she is a Reiki Master,Medium,and Spirtual Alignist.
This Event was celebrating Christian Dior and his Superstitions and how he relied on his spiritual advisers for every major decision. When he stumbled upon a star that had fallen off a street carriage,he took it as a sign and kept that hanging in his studio for his entire career. The number eight was his lucky number,setting up his studio on the eighth floor,eight employees and always had thirteen models.
Here I am with my new Spiritual Advisor Dawn.She gave the most wonderful reading at a perfect time and answered some of my questions I had from when I was ill in my coma. It was spiritually uplifting for me.
With the lovely Natalie Atkinson who gave a delightful account of Christian Dior and his Superstitions with host Dave Lackie. Whose skills don’t end with beauty extraordinarie I think we can add baker to his already impressive list. He baked individual pumpkin tarts from his grandmothers homemade recipe and they were delicious.
This was such a unique event that had so many layers of personalities and information presented in such a way that I think each and every person had a wonderful time spent with like minded people who enjoy beauty,fashion and great company. It was wonderful seeing everyone happy and some including myself moved to tears of joy from our readings.Only Dave Lackie can put on a Beauty event that can create a lasting impression that is equally applicable to lasting friendships and future hopes. It was literally Past ,Present and Future,all of which was inspired by Dior and brought to our lives from Dave Lackie. Thank you!
If wonderful friends,informative talk,homemade pumpkin tarts and a psychic isn’t enough we were gifted a beautiful Dior palette and Poison Girl perfume as well as the one hundred people received a complimentary Dior mascara Effect and Mini Miss Dior glass perfume. Thank you isn’t enough said to Dave Lackie to express the gratitude I feel. I feel very “lucky “ to have crossed paths with him and cherish all these moments that I have experienced from knowing him and can’t help but wonder if he is my lucky star that I have stumbled upon not walking on the street but walking on Twitter,only if for enriching my life ,by having him in mine.
