Feeling a bit retro 80’s @ Rock Your Rack

I felt so incredibly honored when I was chosen to blog for Rock Your Rack 2016, presented by Models Giving Back, benefiting the National Breast Cancer Foundation, that when I was suddenly hit with a Cancer scare of my own I was devastated at the thought I might not be able to continue with my commitment.  But being the positive person that I am, I didn’t let anyone know hoping things would turn out fine in the end.  Yesterday morning I got the best news I could right now, Cancer free, and I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders.  Not to mention that yesterday afternoon I locked my keys and garage door opener in my old home and said goodbye leaving behind a lot of bad memories and ready for my life to start completely without being financially strapped by living in two places.  With a bit of a spring in my step I jumped online today to dive into more goodies from Rock Your Rack and there might have been a little squeal that escaped from my lips as I saw the names of the ensembles from Mirror Mirror, taking me straight back to the 80’s and the days of worrying about nothing more than how my hair looked, and that my grades stayed high so I could go to the big party over the weekend.  I remember when Some Kind of Wonderful came out and I went with all my friends to go see it in theaters and almost getting kicked out for being too loud, and with a host of other movies, will remain one of my favorites because of the memories of days gone by it brings to the forefront!  So I just had to run off and find a retro arcade and a jukebox and spend some time bebopping around the office with what seem like long lost friends.

Every designer involved in the event has a 50% Donation item, a 100% Donation item, and a Hunt item as well.  Today I am showing off Mirror Mirror’s Exclusive for the event, Some Kind of Wonderful comes in 4 different color combinations, meaning I am sure you will find a favorite!  The pants are to die for with intricate laced detailing along the pants and they fit great too!  The top and pants come in the standard sizing but I didn’t have to do much to make my Maitreya body fit, which we all know makes me happy!  So as you head over to check out the event make sure to stop by Mirror Mirror’s booth and check out all the fantastic designs offered exclusively for the event!  And while there, go check out Semi-Precious.  One of the things I love about blogging events like Rock Your Rack, is that I am exposed to designers I haven’t come across before, like Semi-Precious, and I am just blown away by the quality of design and incredible attention to detail.  The Jessica collection is absolutely gorgeous and comes in 3 different metal colors as well as a number of color HUD’s to choose from making it an incredibly versatile piece that just HAS to make it into your jewelry box!
