I’m always looking for fun ways to make life for more interesting and, in many cases, to make people think! One way that I like to spark conversation is through my clothing – I tend to have an eclectic sense of fashion and I know what I wear often starts conversations!
For that reason, I have been a fan, and customer, of CafePress for over a year now. When I first ran across the site, I was enthralled by all of the wonderful options available on their site – I literally would spend hours searching the site for fun, funny and thought-provoking items. I own a number of items of clothing from Cafe Press and I find people constantly commenting on my clothing and asking me, “Where did you get that?”
Because I also like to make people think, I was really pleased when I was given the opportunity to review one of their breast cancer t-shirts! While I am lucky that I am not a breast cancer survivor, this cause is very near and dear to my heart. I have had three amazing women in my life who have battled, and beat, breast cancer. I have watched them struggle to deal with their treatments and how this disease has impacted their lives. Having the chance to review a shirt that would help raise awareness of this disease had me stoked!
I chose to review the “Peace Love and Hope for a Cure” long-sleeved tshirt. When the shirt arrived, I was impressed by the fact that there were specific washing instructions included with the shirt to ensure I would know how to best care for it. I thought the design looked great – I loved the contrast of the colour on the black shirt. When wearing it, I’ve received an amazing amount of compliments about the shirt and it has opened up dialogues with various people about breast cancer – it never ceases to amaze me how many people have been touched by this disease!
