Traveling Pink Sweater

I am so honored to be apart of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pink Sweater! This amazing vintage sweater is being worn by some of Indy’s most fabulous ladies. Everyone is styling the sweater in their own special way. We are all rocking this pink gem to help raise funds to support the Pink Ribbon Connection. This sweater is making a yearlong journey, passing from one women/sponsor to the next in support of this cause. It’s a journey that symbolizes the road that so many women travel on their way to recovery. It also reflects the solidarity of all people who care for neighbors, friends, sisters,aunts,cousins, mothers, daughters, wives and girlfriends affected by breast cancer.

Note to Sponsors: Please Link to: http://pinkribbonconnection.org/id65.html to support the Pink Ribbon Connection, a local not-for-profit that helps women in central Indiana who’ve been affected by breast cancer.

After you’ve made your donation, please share my post with everyone in your network to spread the word about this cause. The Pink Ribbon Connection provides underserved women with information and resources such as bras, wigs, prostheses and other assistance that supports breast cancer diagnosis care and recovery.

It’s my job to introduce the next women/sponsor for the #Sisiterhoodofthetravelingpinksweater, my dear friend Kimann Schultz, Fashion Arts Society President and Huffington Post Blogger.

Art Institute Fashion Show

I was so excited to attend the Art Institute of Indianapolis Annual Fashion Show at Crane Bay. I have such great memories attending school at Aii, for my Bachelor degree, only a few years ago. I remember helping with the fashion show during my senior year and being so excited for the entire evening. Naturally, that same little bit of excitement returned as I watched the show start this 2014.

G. Thrapp Bridal Party Event

If you can’t already tell, G. Thrapp is one of my favorite jewelry stores in Indy. When I’m ready to add some new sparkle to my jewelry box, I always stop by G. Thrapp first. I am in love with their fabulous collection of estate and vintage jewelry. You can find amazingly unique pieces that can be passed down for generations.

My love for G. Thrapp grew even stronger when I learned that my husband had designed my engagement ring with their amazing team. Not only is my engagement ring from G. Thrapp, but my husband’s wedding band, and many of my personal pieces are as well; this is why I am so excited to help announce their Bridal Party event on April 19th!

Pattern Vol.5 Launch Party

I have been beyond excited to see the latest issue of Pattern magazine. This past Friday evening I headed to the Herron School of Art for the Pattern Vol. 5 Launch Party! I think I say this every time I’m handed a new Pattern, but this might be the best issue yet. I truly loved the focus on “Design” and it’s impact on our creativity and drive. This was a great new way to position the magazine so that it’s always growing and ever evolving.

Drybar!

It’s no secret that I love having my hair blown out. It’s also not a secret that I am  officially obsessed with Do-tiuqe, the blowout bar in Carmel. So, naturally when I arrived in LA, I had to have my hair done at Drybar!
