Pardon the interruption, but I have a very exciting non-Fashion-Week announcement!

A few weeks ago, I agreed to work with Ralph Lauren on their Pink Pony campaign, which is a separate line of Polo shirts and other products to benefit cancer care for those who need and can’t afford it.  And what’s more fashionable than clothing with a charitable angle?

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I grew up in Connecticut, where Polo shirts are pretty much a way of life.  So when I got my Pink Pony short from Ralph Lauren, I wanted to make sure I didn’t do something totally typical with it — no khakis and Jack Rogers sandals for me, thank you very much.  I ended up photographing two separate outfits because I wasn’t sure which I liked better — in the photo above, I paired the polo shirt with a skirt I made myself (you can see more of it here).  In the ones below, I wore it over the long dress I used for these photos, which is one of my favorite things in my closetl!  As I’m writing this, I don’t know which one the folks at Ralph Lauren chose for their Blogger slideshow — which do you guys like better?

If you want to get involved, you can do it in two ways:

  • Ralph Lauren is holding a Charity Buzz auction from October 1st to October 21st, with some serious prizes (a front row seat to the Fall 2011 show, and your kid as the star of a Ralph Lauren ad), the proceeds of which will benefit the Pink Pony Fund, or
  • Text PINKPONY to 501501 to automatically donate $10 to the Pink Pony campaign!

    This is super cute!  Love the bracelet!  I think you may have forgotten to close italics somewhere in this post. :)

    It was a pleasure meeting you this evening.  I just realized that I’ve been to your blog before.  It’s really great, so I shall return!

    Every time you wear those Giuseppe Zanotti heels I salivate. They are the BEST!

    And I love fashion/clothes that benefit a good cause!
