Rock Your Rack 2016 starts on October 1st! The annual event is presented by Models Giving Back. In its 4th year, this go-round will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The Foundation provides mammogram, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.
Designer Wistful MacTavish of Flippant is featured at the event this year, with several offerings. Shown here is her lovely BCA Gown with Flexi Skirt. It is breathtakingly beautiful with multiple fits. There is a gentle, almost poignant beauty about this gown to me, promising romantic nights and avowals of undying love.
I'd like to share a personal experience I had with the subject at hand - breast cancer. One of my high school friends, a pretty girl named Robin, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the remarkably young age of 17! Her mother and grandmother both had had breast cancer. Robin underwent a double mastectomy in our senior year. While we were visiting at the hospital the night before surgery, Robin was keeping a positive frame of mind - she was a cheerleader, you see, and she stated "Well, at least I won't be bouncing all over the place during our routines." We burst into tears. She continued with a small smile, almost matter of factly, "....and the dress I want to wear to prom will probably fit better." She continued smiling while a single tear slipped down her cheek.
This gown reminds me of the beautiful dress Robin wore to prom. She wasn't able to return to cheerleading but had recovered enough to join us at our final school dance. I watched her entrance, a vision in softly flowing pink, a fitted bodice with a delicate rose design. She was stunning. And she was more so, beautiful on the inside which shown through for all to see. A woman's true beauty stems from within.
I can only wonder now, with advancements in medicine and earlier detection, would Robin have had to undergo such radical surgery today.
