I was at Saks recently, and I got this great cotton long sleeve tee. It’s seriously the most comfortable material I’ve ever worn. And I love the print on it (It’s designed by Donna Karan!). Plus, it’s for a good cause, Key to the Cure. Learn more about Key to the Cure in the press release I posted below.

I was pleasantly surprised when my Cincy Chic event planner, Libby, told me Saks wanted us to have a ladies night there to kick off the Key to the Cure campaign. Since I had just learned all about it, and thought it was fab, I was thrilled to help support the effort! Click here to check out info about the event Saks and Libby came up with! And click here to RSVP.

I hope you can attend this event to celebrate this Key to the Cure campaign with an “Evening of Beauty” on Oct. 21. Enjoy cocktails, shopping, expert beauty advice and one-on-one makeup and skincare consultations. A portion of the sales will go to the wellness community that the Key to the Cure campaign supports! Oh, and while you’re there, be sure you snag one of these shirts!

It quickly became my favorite t-shirt ever! (Which makes my hubby happy because I’m no longer stealing his comfy t-shirts!) : )
