Hey Velo Voguers! This Friday we got to attend a fabulous exclusive event at one of East Ottawa’s hidden gems Place d’Orléans to promote their Vlogger search contest. We were chosen as one of the top 10 Ottawa fashion bloggers to be ambassadors of their Vlogger search. We definitely felt honoured!

We received this wonderful invite in the form of a clapper board! How cute is that?



The event took place on the Fountain stage where they had a fantastic set up made to look like a bedroom. It was very stylish and very comfortable! From the moment we saw it we were ready to move in!


At the event we had a chance to network with other fashion bloggers from the Ottawa area. They were all so nice and it was so great to finally meet them in person!

The food at the event was catered by one of our favourites, Thyme and again. The sweets were provided by Carla’s Cakes. It was all delicious!



We were even treated to some free time to shop around the mall. Our wonderful hosts provided us with handsome VIP escorts to follow us and help with our bags! Definitely not a bad touch! Now we’re certainly not used to receiving such attention on the regular, but who were we to turn down such gracious offerings?



Place d’Orléans is full of some amazing finds! We challenged ourselves to find fabulous outfits for under a 100$, and let us tell you we did succeed. There were so many store options to choose from, we didn’t know where to start. No matter what your style is you’ll find stores to suit your taste. Check out our fashion finds in our Vlog.

We made sure to get in a few high fashion photo sessions where we could!



Once we had shopped till we dropped we returned to the stage to make our own video to show off our treasures! Check it out below.
