It's always been a source of frustration for me that I haven't done enough on social media to support charitable causes, which is why I got pretty excited when asked by the Hong Kong Cancer Fund to support their Pink Revolution campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October- and all I had to do was put on my new favourite vintage boiler suit.
In Hong Kong alone, 1 in 17 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and it is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Pink Revolution is Hong Kong's largest and most comprehensive breast cancer awareness and fundraising campaign, and I think it's really critical to stress the importance of regular breast checks and support for the Fund's free breast cancer care services to support those who are fighting through it. If you're from HK, you can sponsor a Pink Recovery Pack sent to the bedsides of those who have just undergone surgery, and find more ways to support the Fund on their website including dressing pink on Friday October 21st.
I found this bubblegum pink dream of a jumpsuit in a vintage store in London but let's be honest, I would find any excuse to put this on. Join me on the 21st and bust out your favourite pink dress/jumper/accessories etc. to show your support for the cause :-)
My jumpsuit is vintage, and my shoes are from Axel Arigato. Photographed by my mum.
