I'm back with a post I saved on my computer for a few days and in this outfit, there is a piece that means so much to me; the pink blazer which I thrifted for $5.99...:-).
I was invited by my blogger friend over at Simply Chic to participate in a breast cancer awareness pink moment post showcasing your favorite pink outfit or accessories and you can see the feature here. I was very excited to do the feature but when I looked in my closet, I could not locate my hot pink jacket which I wore at about the same time last year in this post here and I did not want to wear a pink dress or skirt so I decided to go thrifting to see if I could find another pink jacket
If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will know by now that I do thrift occasionally and most of my jackets are actually thrifted. Well, it did not take me long to find this and at $5.99, it was a good deal. The jacket came with an old fashioned gold toned round button which I replaced with this brown one. After dry cleaning, it was almost as good as new. The thing I love most about the blazer is its soft pink color and the length and the light wool fabric makes it very comfy. I only wished I had smiled more in these pictures but I was not feeling well and actually had a headache at the time. It made me reflect on what breast cancer patients actually go through; hospital visits, chemo treatments, hair loss...

I am glad awareness is being made about this awful disease and I'm glad that I was able to contribute in a little way with my pink blazer. Much still needs to be done though; prayers and all. If Jesus Christ healed all those diseases when he was here and died to give us power over all things, there is hope for all. It only takes faith to start the process of a miracle. And I pray that our faith be straightened in Jesus name- AMEN. Have you ever worn pink to fight a good cause? It was Halloween yesterday; did you dress up in any costume?
Luke 17: 16
And the Lord said, if ye had faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
Thanks so much for stopping by
Beautiful look and I am also not into Halloween ghost and vampires!ReplyDelete
$5.99?! That's the kind of price I like to see and for that blazer? What a great find! I've found 3 thrifted blazers so far and I'm on the lookout for about 10 more! Lol. I love blazers.ReplyDelete
The price makes me love the blazer even more.ReplyDelete
I have worn pink and participated in a breast cancer walk. That blazer looks very nice on you. I was Little Red Riding Hood this year for Halloween :)ReplyDelete
