I’m a big supporter of the OCRF, Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, and love to support White Shirt Day. It’s so important to raise awareness and as much money as possible to find an early stage detection test. Click here to read the OCRF Mission. They say it so much better than I can.
One woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer in Australia.
Pap smears, whilst very important, do not diagnose ovarian cancer.
There is no early detection test. There is no cure.
For White Shirt Day 2013, I teamed a Dion Lee for Cue white shirt, which I wore open and tied at the waist over an orange Country Road tank, with a Veronika Maine skirt, Ziera gold flats and a black Marc for Marc Jacobs bag. I accessorised with an orange crystal hairclip, a pair of pave diamond hearts in one ear, and Pandora hearts in the other, as well as a Tiffany silver bead necklace and a gorgeous Red Phoenix statement necklace.
I know many people whose lives have been touched in the most awful way by ovarian cancer. There is a reason it is called The Silent Killer – by the time most people discover they have it, it is at a very advanced stage. OCRF are doing fantastic work and if you’d like to support it, you can click here to make a donation.
How else can you help? Head into Witchery and buy yourself something fabulous from the Witchery White Shirt Campaign 2013. Here are my picks – a gorgeous embellished collar reverse peplum shirt, an ivory lace shirt, an adorable tee and the lovely Firass Dirani modelling a classic tuxedo shirt. 100% of the gross proceeds support OCRF. 100%!
If you’re not a white shirt kinda person, then buy yourself, or someone you love, something special from the Silver Gift Collection. 10% of the gross proceeds go to support OCRF. Here are my picks from the collection, ranging from $69.95 to $19.95. Yes, there are quite a few picks. I loved so many pieces!
This year, OCRF are running the OCRF White Style Instagram Competition.
Three very easy steps to enter:
- Follow @ocrf on Instagram
- Post a picture of you wearing your white shirt in style
- Tag your entry #whitestyleocrf
Your account needs to be public so the entry can be seen. Entries close at 11.59 am on 31 May 2013. You can enter more than once, but only once per outfit. Prizes to be awarded are a L’Oreal Paris voucher and a $200 Witchery voucher. Certainly worth a go!
I hope that you are lucky enough not to have experienced ovarian cancer in your family, and let’s just do more than keep our fingers crossed that an early detection test will be available soon.
