As I hope all of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and thanks to A Working Mom’s Closet there are three dozen fashion and style bloggers (including the lovely La Historiadora de Moda from Fashionable Academics) participating in what Mom’s Closet has dubbed “Blogging for Breast Cancer aWEARness”. I have lost very dear friends and family members to this horrible disease as well as watched loved ones triumph over cancer. I know that cancer is something that touches each of our lives, and many of you have your own reasons for fighting for this cause. I’m doing this for Granny, Aunt Wiggy, Annette, and Candy.
We here at Academichic will be participating this week by wearing pink items and providing links for donations (Give a Free Mammogram!), information, and support ( The American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen Foundation). Finding a cure for cancer is a cause very close to my heart, and I participate in the Relay for Life every year.
This pink dress is very special to me because it is what I wore during my thesis defense and under my robes for the commencement ceremony last spring when I received my Masters. Pink is one of my favorite colors and this dress fits like a glove and has both silver-grey and bronze details, which makes accessorizing very flexible. I can wear grey shoes or bronze, gold jewelry or silver. Ultimately, this is one of my favorite dresses and associated with many happy (albeit stressful) occasions.
I hope that you all have joined the fight against cancer this month and continue the fight until we find a cure! Have you been wearing pink? What events do you like to participate in to help fight cancer? Thanks for your help!
