Fashion for a cause campaign

If you visited my Facebook page last week you probably saw some behind-the-scene pictures from this campaign…and now, here are the finished images. I was so happy to be able to be a part of this project with so many talented ladies. Each Miami fashion blogger was asked to wear the custom made shirt to the shoot and add our own touch to it to make it unique. Here’s mine:

I paired the top with a fun colored skirt from H&M and of course, you know I had to add some bling. I found some push-pin type of embellishments at Michael’s and added them along the neckline and two on each side of the arm to keep the fold up. It didn’t take me that long and honestly, I was kind of proud of myself…I wouldn’t consider myself a crafty Martha…unlike the other Martha we all know ;)

This campaign brought together 26 Miami Fashion Bloggers for one important cause…the fight against breast cancer. These shirts will be sold in various stores in South Florida and all the proceeds benefit the The Florida Foundation for Breast Cancer. So…yes, a tee shirt can help save a life. The proceeds help fund research, treatment and prevention care.

In this next picture you can see the side arms better…I thought I was pretty clever at putting the pins there and keeping the shirt rolled up. Yes, that’s me patting myself on the back. Hey, it’s baby steps for me when it comes to DIY.

    Aww, I like this DIY! You had me worried when you were talking all glue gun on twitter, but this came out amazing! And you definitely deserve a pat on the back for coming up with the blinged-out rolled sleeve. Gorgeous pictures, Martha :)
