Dedicated To Pink

by - October 25, 2014

Before Breast Cancer Awareness month passed I wanted to do a tribute post. That's when I realized I didn't own one pink item. I love black clothes, occasionally I will purchase something with colour but bright pink is really never an option for me. I do have a pastel pink top and cardigan but those dont really count as they look more neutral than actually pink. Anyhow, two years ago my aunt Pat gave me these Love Label pumps with pink rosebud details and I have NEVER worn them. Yes, TWO YEARS and never once been worn! Lol. This cause (Breast Cancer Awareness) presented an opportune time to break them out.

For this very basic look I turned a normal raceback top backwards, added a tailored pants which I "made-over" by pulling it up to knee length and also a NastyGal long vest.

Love Label Capulet Rose Trim Heels are no longer in stock

I dedicate this post to my cousin Stacy-Anne Johnson ♥, who passed away on May 1st of this year. Although it was stomach cancer and not breast cancer- regardless of the type, it is a horrible illness that has affected us all in someway or another. She was a young, which really opened my eye to the fact that this disease is not partial to age, race or anything else. I encourage everyone to start taking control of your bodies as the best way to fight this thing is by preventing it. Be more mindful of what you put in your bodies, take your vitamins, drink / eat your greens, exercise and ladies make sure you do a Monthly Self-Exam. Here's to good health....

until next time,
Do Good, Dress Well
