I was so shocked to hear the news today when Giuliana Rancic revealed she has breast cancer to Ann Curry on the Today Show. (Click here to watch video)
The 36 year old entertainment host has been trying to have a baby for a few years now with husband, Bill Rancic. Before continuing with the in vitro process, Rancic received a mammogram at the recommendation of her doctor.
It turned out to be one of the best decisions of her life–and thankfully, the mammogram showed she was in the early stages of breast cancer. Rancic mentioned to Curry she will be going in for surgery later this week and has 6 weeks of radiation treatment.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Rancics. No one ever wants to hear that they or their loved ones has the big C. I have watched Giuliana host on E! for so many years and she has been a positive role model for aspiring entertainment hosts. I wish her a smooth and speedy recovery!

69 seconds. Why is that number important?
Because that’s how often a woman dies of breast cancer somewhere in the world. A statistic which needs to be changed. It’s also about how long it takes to #fightbreastcancer by choosing to drive change, share support or educate at www.69-seconds.org.

I am absolutely obsessed with my NEW Farai Simoyi crop top! (Thank you, Farai!!!!! XOX) I paired this fierce top with my high-waisted red maxi skirt. Love it or hate it?

These tops are a great addition to any woman’s wardrobe. The unique rosette design will make you feel feminine chic. It will look great with a pair of high-waisted shorts/skirts or even a flare bottom.

Stripes in the Day or Night
A striped black and white top looks PERFECT combined with a pair of denim jeans and nude accents.
If you aren’t a stripes kinda guy or gal, you better start warming up to the friendly lines as they make their way into the fall and winter season.
So now you’re probably asking yourself, what stripes are right for me?
Fear is for the weak!! Never fear fashion. Horizontal stripes can work well if you wear them correctly. Stay away from tight-fitted striped tops and dresses because this will accentuate your bust and booty which can create optical illusions of a heavier frame. Also, don’t shy away from mixing and matching wild prints into your wardrobe! Leopard print accessories are a really hot trend–especially when paired with stripes! uh-fierce!
