STAR WARS: May the Force 4 Fashion Be With You

Star Wars "Force 4 Fashion" - Media Preview

 

Is there anything cooler than Star Wars?
Nope.
Is there anything cooler than a group of A List designers creating looks inspired by the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
Not a chance.

Disney Consumer Products and Bloomingdale’s have joined forces with fashion favorites Billy Reid, Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg, Giles Deacon, Halston, Opening Ceremony, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland and Todd Snyder to create outfits that pay homage to the characters in the new Star Wars film.  Outfits will be auctioned off by Bloomingdale’s on CharityBuzz.com with proceeds benefitting Child Mind Institute on behalf of Star Wars: Force For Change – a charitable initiative that empowers people to make a positive impact on the world around them.

Yesterday I was treated to a sneak peek of this FORCE 4 FASHION fundraising initiative.

If you happen to be in the NYC area, cruise on over to Bloomingdale’s and see all of these super cool looks for yourself!  Or just take a peek at some of my favorite looks below.

Time to Ditch the Plastic!

TRD -FaucetFace

 

I am sure you have read, and my Mother has been nagging me about this for years, that plastics can be extremely hazardous to our health.  And new research is going a step further and telling us that even BPA free plastics are still dangerous.  Check out  these articles from the Environmental Working Group for more about the specific hazards.

 

But in a nutshell BPA (Bisphenol A) is a seriously scary toxin that we do NOT want around us.  That’s why I am ditching all my plastics and going back to glass.  Everything tastes better in glass anyway.  I tossed out all my kitchen containers that were plastic including my colander, cutting board, storage containers, and even plastic spoons.  And forget about plastic water bottles, no way Jose!  For water bottles I am turning to the super glass bottles from Faucet Face.

These great glass bottles are twice as thick as a Snapple bottle and very sturdy.   And at only $12 each, they are absolutely affordable.

I love their cute designs (Hose Water!) but they can even do custom designs.  Very cool!  This do-gooder company also donates 2.5% of sales to a clean drinking water charity, Third Millenium Awakening (TMA), through its 1 for 100 program.  Everybody wins.

 

Faucet Face

 

Ditch this toxic plastic once and for all and grab a Faucet Face bottle. Everything tastes better in glass!

Go For The Rose Gold!

TRD - Carbon&Hyde

I have two words for you…Rose Gold!  I adore this hue.  It is beautiful and flattering on absolutely every skin tone.  Plus it is so of the moment chic.  You simply must add some rose gold to your jewelry stash.

CARBON & HYDE has some seriously swoon-worthy rose gold gems with an edge.  Designers (and sisters) Oren and Yarden Katz are taking a casual-young approach to fine jewelry.  The LA based jewelry line features pieces that are handcrafted from 14k gold and diamonds in California.  And for the month of April, Carbon & Hyde will be donating 15% of all sales to charity:water.  A super chic way to shop for a cause!

Do Good. Look Fabulous.

TRD - StuartWeitzmanLegwrap

My beloved STUART WEITZMAN is at it again, bringing fashion and philanthropy together in perfect style.

The sexiest sole for summer is the Legwrap Sandal.  I cannot tell you how much I love this shoe!  It pairs with everything from jeans to cocktail dresses.  And according to the gentlemen, the hot factor of this gladiator-inspired high heel is off the charts.

This limited edition capsule collection will raise money to benefit Dr. Marsha A. Moses’ pioneering cancer research initiatives at the Folkman Institute in Boston, MA.  Dr. Moses’ research extends to a wide range of cancers including breast and ovarian cancer.

The Legwrap is available in 4 limited edition colors.  It was a tough choice, but I went with the divine red lipstick suede.

Let’s get wrapped up for a fabulous cause!
