Fashion & The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

~ October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 
~ A pink ribbon is a symbol of breast cancer awareness. 
~ It may be worn to honor those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. 

My mini sketch in support of the pink ribbon.

~ Susan G. Komen for the Cure gave out pink ribbons to participants in its NYC race for breast 
cancer survivors in Fall of 1991. 


~ The following year, the editor in chief of Self magazine, Alexandra Penney and Evelyn Lauder of Estée Lauder,came up with the idea to create a ribbon and to procure that cosmetics giant distribute it in stores in NYC. 

~ Many critics opposed to the use of the pink ribbon as asymbol of breast cancer. The breast cancer awareness campaign was accused of commercialization.

~ The pink ribbon is not a registered trademark in the U.S.It can be used by anyone and can be use to promote commercial products. The Breast Cancer Action launched the "Think Before You Pink" which encourages to use the pink ribbon for good.

My favorite UGG is the Classic Tall in Black.  
Which one is your favorite? or Do you just hate UGGs?

Andirodack Weather Boot - I think they are big and ugly, manly I would say. This are my least favorite. What do you think? Which one is your least favorite UGG?

I'm still not sure about UGGs for men. I don't picture my boyfriend in the Classic Tall. Maybe the Ascot or Sneakers would be OK. Do you really think men should wear UGGs?

I love Ankle Boots and Knee High Boots. Do you have a favorite? What Boot Style do you think that is more flattering to you?

Do you prefer Knee High Boots or Over The Knee Boots? 
My case I think I'm too short (5' 2') to wear Over The Knee Boots. I don't know if it would look good on me or if it would make me look shorter. What do you think?
