Breast cancer affects women of every age and in all walks of life. So, it seems appropriate that the sweater's journey to date has included a diverse group of women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. Our lives, our experiences, and our personal styles are different, but the Pink Sweater is a common thread that unites us in support of a cause that matters to each of us.
...and who knew that one little bubblegum pink sweater from the 1960s could look so different, but so current, on blondes, brunettes, and redheads in so many different stages of life! Maggie and I both paired the sweater with leather skirts, but her thigh high boots and suspenders are rocker chic where my navy pleats and monogrammed candy-stripe Mary Janes are more modern prep. Madison channels a modern day Jackie O with her ballet flats and classic pearls; while Leslie looks mod in pink and black with sleek riding boots. Crystal's vintage brooch highlights the unique neckline of the sweater but denim keeps the look unfussy; and Megan styled the sweater in not one, but three completely different, modern ways.
Here's a travelogue of the Pink Sweater's journey and all the sisters who have joined us on this project so far. Click on the links to see details of each woman's unique way of wearing our "sweater with a cause!"
