Last Thursday I attended Catwalk for a Cure, an amazing event put together by the young and inspiring Bryan Finocchio. Despite having trouble finding something pink to wear, I threw something together and headed out to the State Room on the 33rd floor of Sixty State Street. There the first event was a cocktail and silent auction, including complimentary appetizers and pink cocktails. Models lined the border of the room showing off Zack Lo's shoe designs and photographers and interviewers grabbed you for a shot. My favorite booth was the Stella and Dot jewelry collection- can you guess which of these gorgeous necklaces caught my eye?lost someone to this horrible disease of cells gone awry. But having also done breast cancer research and being in the medical field, I know many of the companies claiming their product benefits breast cancer are really just trying to make more profits. At this event though, a representative from the Susan G. Komen For the Cure branch in Massachusetts gave a touching speech, describing exactly where this money would go - towards educational outreach, towards annual mammograms, even towards transportation to those mammograms, a luxury many of us take for granted. The room for the fashion show was lit with pink and the views of Boston Harbor and the city surrounded us - a perfect set up.

I had a fabulous time, and have to thank my fellow Boston Fashionista, Kristen, for being my companion for the night and snapping a few pictures of me being silly.
