Have you ever had a moment in your life where you have to pinch yourself to see if what is happening in front of you is REALLY happening? Well, I had one of those moments recently. My “pinch me” moment was when I…..Stephanie Carper….met Betsey Johnson!

This month is all about “painting the town pink”! Yes, unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you are fully aware that this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone is “feeling the power of the pink” and is doing their part to help spread awareness and raise money to find a cure. When I say everybody, I mean everybody: celebrities, companies and of course the fashion world!
I honestly have to say that I am very touched by how the fashion world is paying it forward and doing so much in the fight for a cure. Some of our favorite designers are creating exclusive “mini collections” or special pieces for the cure this month, high-powered celebrities are saying “the force is with you” through exclusive fashion pieces and well known fashion retailers launch beautiful collections.
Some of my favorite things the fashion world is doing for the cause:
Ann Taylor Loft- BCRF Collection :
One of my favorite stores that I frequent when I’m in the need for some fab ‘casual chic’ pieces, has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) and created an exclusive collection of limited edition T-shirts and jewelry.
T-SHIRTS: for every t-shirt purchased, $5 will go to BCRF. The t-shirts were inspired by the stories of three real women whose stories inspired the shirts and symbolizing: strength, inspiration and support.
Boy do I wish I could actually be at New York Fashion Week live right now!!! The shows and Spring 2012 collections have been so amazing so far! Bright colors (Hmmm…..just like we are seeing for fall right now), great patterns, florals and beautiful sheer fabric, luxurious and elegant furs, tribal inspired prints and the ever-so-popular color blocking.
