Cartier Love!

On June 19th, Cartier will roll out a new jewelry collection and music celebrity ambassadors at the 3rd annual Love Day Celebration.  The Love Day celebration at Chicagos’s Michigan Avenue boutique will include complimentary Champagne and guest DJs led by Chicago’s own DJ Mano from noon-6pm.  Here’s a pic of last year’s bracelets:

Cartier Love Bracelets 2007

This year, the new bracelet features an 18K white gold miniature bracelet intertwined with an 18K pink gold miniature bracelet; both bracelets are graced with the word and accented with two signature screw motifs. They’ve also updated the colors of the knotted ropes, to correspond with a new group of charities. The  bracelet is available for $995 nationwide (whew!) with $200 per bracelet benefiting its corresponding charity.  On, June 19th, 10% of all sales from the entire collection will benefit the partnered organizations.  

The new celebrity ambassadors are listed below (along with the respective color of their organization/bracelet):

     Janet Jackson for The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance – Gunmetal Grey bracelet
     Fergie for The Peapod Foundation – Orange bracelet
     Good Charlotte for The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation – Deep Jade Green bracelet
     Eve for Women in Transition – Peach bracelet
     Common for The Common Ground Foundation – Khaki bracelet
     Hilary Duff for Blessings in a Backpack – Deep Plum Purple bracelet
     Emmy Rossum for Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Pink bracelet
     Ashanti for Boys & Girls Club of America – Royal Blue bracelet

Over the past two years, Cartier has donated more than $2.24 million to sixteen global charities from the sales of the bracelet, and due to the enormous success, this year Cartier will celebrate with a new bracelet.

I have a hard time dropping a cool grand on any one item (unless it’s a MacBook or an all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas), but, if you can afford it, definitely go for it!!!

Pinkies Up!

Although I’ve only attended one formal tea event in my lifetime, there is something quite swanky about ladies in hats and white gloves sipping tea in a swanky hotel! Be Bright Pink, an amazing breast and ovarian cancer nonprofit, is putting their own (hot pink) spin on the traditional concept! The Outreach Committee will be hosting “For The Women We Love: A High Tea” on Sunday, June 29th at The Drake Hotel.

General tickets are $40, but you can also purchase VIP tickets for $65. VIP tickets include priority seating and a fabulous gift bag. The keynote speaker will be Jessica Queller, who among many things is the writer/producer for one of my favorite shows, “Gossip Girl.” The Outreach Committee has a put a lot of hard work into this event so I hope to see you all there!

We Love to Erase MS

 

So, one of the causes closest to my heart is finding a cure for multiple sclerosis! I’m always looking for different ways to donate my time and money for programs, research, etc. So, imagine my delight when I came across these cute “We ♥ To Erase MS” orange tees (I ordered mine last week)!

 

 

MS Tees 

   

These tees were designed by Tommy Hilfiger, a long-time supporter of MS research, and 100% of the proceeds support the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. The signature event for the Nancy Davis Foundation is the celebrity-filled gala, “The Race to Erase MS” featuring among many other things a celebrity fashion show by Tommy Hilfiger. This year was the 15th anniversary of the gala and raised over $2 MILLION dollars to support MS research!

 

Click here for more information on the tees! While you’re on the site, be sure to check out the other stylish merchandise for sale including super-chic orange leather bracelets from Alexandra Richard and some flirty orange nail polish…Just in time for summer!

Welcome!

 

I decided that there needed to be a central site that profiles fabulous movers-and-shakers who have committed themselves to changing the world with a stylish hand and an open heart. Everyday, there are plenty of designers, boutiques, celebrities, fashionistas, and more doing their part to support the charitable cause of their choice. They don’t do it for the recognition, but why should their good deeds go unnoticed?

 

 

I will do my part to keep you posted on sales, fashion events, galas, and initiatives designed to raise money for charity. This blog will also take a look at the charities connected to some of my favorite celebs!
