I have always admired people who dress well, and scarves always add something special. My favorite way to wear a scarf is any way that is flattering to the person wearing it! Draped around the neck, around the waist, over the shoulder. Scarves are infinitely versatile.
The idea for this scarf came to me one morning as I sat under the gazebo drinking coffee. I could not get over how clear the sky was that day. The contrast of the black against the beautiful blue sky reminded me how beautiful life can be. Which was a perfect thought for Stand Up 2 Cancer.
I learned about Stand Up 2 Cancer many years ago when it first got started. I had a meeting with Laura Ziskin, Pam Williams, Rusty Roberts, and Katie Couric. They asked me to become part of this wonderful organization, whose mission it is to raise money to accelerate the pace of research and get new therapies to patients quickly, saving lives now. I was immediately personally invested. Cancer has taken the lives of so many people I love. It’s been wonderful to partner with Chico’s on this inspiring and beneficial project.
