As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so in the spirit of supporting women, I’m thrilled to partner with Talbots to share their second annual “The Art of the Scarf” Collection. There are few among us who have not had our lives touched by cancer.
One in eight women (12%) in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. That’s a staggering statistic. I was shocked when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I shouldn’t have been, but we all think it won’t happen to us or our loved ones.
“A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older)– breastcancer.org
These one-of-a-kind works of art are full of color and whimsey but also help in the fight against breast cancer. From now through the end of October, 20% of net proceeds from each scarf will benefit Susan G. Komen in the fight to end breast cancer.
This limited-edition silk scarf collection is designed exclusively for Talbots by six internationally renowned female artists.
SHOP THE COLLECTION
I am wearing the Carolina Melis scarf. It’s a beautiful Lotus flower on a deep indigo background. Lotus petals open one by one to represent strength and determination.
This Nadia Flower Scarf is a blend of foliage, feathers, and colors on a black background which represents the diversity of women.
The LuLu DK Scarf has an ivory background and it represents nature’s greatest gifts of color and beauty.
This Martha Napier Scarf is row upon row of colorfully illustrated women which symbolizes strength through friendship.
This Libby VanderPloeg scarf has an ivory background and celebrates the power of sisterhood in overcoming challenges and achieving our goals.
This Gladys Perint Palmer scarf is inspired by the style of famous women and over-the-top hats. I love illustrations in her designs. I wore a Gladys Perint Palmer scarf last year for a very windy sail on the San Francisco Bay.
