Usually my outfit posts are just that, a post about an outfit. For today's post I started with a lovely little package, from DKMS, and built an outfit around it. DKMS helps leukemia patients find bone marrow donors. My husband has been a registered bone marrow donor for years and I have been a bit reluctant because I thought the process would be really painful, yes I'm a complete wuss.
After reading about DKMS in Lucky Magazine and then seeing a post from a friend on Facebook, I did a little more research and found out that I was completely ignorant about the process. The pain and time is minimal when you consider all the families waiting for their loved one's match, only 4 in 10 find it. When you think about what we spend our time doing and what really matters, I think taking a couple minutes to have the opportunity to save someone's life with a minor procedure trumps anything you could be doing right now, even reading my blog. So browse quickly at the photos below and then go to getswabbed.org to have your swabs sent to you. It takes 30 seconds to swab the inside of your cheek and then send it back to them. No excuses!
My birdie slip dress is from Anthropologie, the sailor top, shoes and clutch are available in my shop and 50% of the sales from those three items willed be donated to DKMS.
