pink day...

...Hello ladies, as most of you probably already know, today is the National "Wear Pink" for Breast Cancer day...in show of support for the boobies, everyone is asked to don something pink~boys included! I rarely play into these sort of things...I mean realistically by wearing something pink I am not truly making a difference (am I?) and I sure as heck am not curing anything...but as superficial as fashion seems in this case, I am also cognizant of the fact that sometimes raising awareness to an issue is just as important...Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that Fashion is not curing this (or any other) disease but on a visual level at least it is bringing attention to the seriousness of cancer in general, and breast cancer in particular...and seeing as we live in a society that is highly image-driven and to a huge extent fashion crazed, perhaps something as simple as wearing a little bit of my favourite colour, is the first step towards something just a little bit bigger...who knows? But I am willing to give it a try...

From Metro:
"The second edition of national National Wear It Pink Day intends to bring attention to "staggering" cancer-related statistics. One in seven Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast or gynecologic cancers in their lifetime. Participants are also encouraged to sign up for the annual Weekend To End Women's Cancer, which sees its proceeds benefit the Cancer Foundation. For more information about National Wear it Pink Day, visit www.endcancer.ca."

In the spirit of raising awareness through fashion, here is Carolina Herrera's (very pink and very beautiful) Resort 2011 Collection...
What did you wear today? Send me a photo and I may feature you on my blog: katarina.kuruc@gmail.com...

Love K

Well, you've raised my awareness simply by posting about this. I didn't know about National Wear Pink Day, and even though I'm not in Canada, I wish I was wearing pink today so I could support the cause.
