Diversity Chic is finally here and brace yourselves because you’re going to get a double dose for this month. If you’re new around here, let me give you a quick recap of the premise behind DC:
Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.
Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.
It took a lot of work to make our schedule happen and this has been a little of a passion project with our partnership with Jamberry. They were gracious enough to send us some of their newest wraps and I was completely thrilled that they were all breast cancer themed. Over the years, I cannot tell you how much of an immense impact that breast cancer has had on my life. From friends and family, I’ve been surrounded by courageous women who have fought this disease and dedicated years fundraising for a cure so that others wouldn’t have to.
My story is intertwined with two of the most courageous women that both happen to be two-time breast cancer survivors. Claire and Nan have both been passionate supporters in a number of different ways in bringing awareness to breast cancer. From fundraising, advocating for a cure, and donating their own time and money – these two women are the epitome of courage and survival.
I have been fortunate enough to stand by their sides during their journeys and watch as they both blossomed through each treatment, doctor’s appointment, and medication. They never complained, remained positive, and always were passionate in their ability to beat breast cancer – especially when others around them worried sick every step of the way.
As Diversity Chic joined together and started admiring the wraps, laughing as we applied them, and enjoying each other’s company – I couldn’t help but swell with pride at the support that Jamberry is showing with this particular line. With each purchase of the breast cancer wraps, Jamberry is donating a portion of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
Even though October is breast cancer awareness month, I am reminded each and every day of the year from the amazing women in my life that one day we will find a cure. Jamberry is helping us push that message further with the subtle reminder that together we can.
