I know you’ve got one, maybe even several bras lying around that you no longer use. Or for that matter, are in dire need of being retired. This month, local company OmniMount has teemed up with The Bra Recylcers, an Arizona-based textile recycling company that focuses on collecting gently used bras to donate to women’s shelters throughout the Valley.
You can get involved by donating one of your gently used bras to the cause now through the end of May. The goal is 1,000 bras by the end of the month so every bra truly counts! Bras can be dropped off at OmniMount. You can also mail to the address below:
OmniMount, c/o The BRAvo Event:
8201 South 48th Street, Phoenix, Arizona, 85044.

If there’s one fashion question I get asked often, it’s about when you have to stop, or can start, wearing white again. Today was a toasty 95 degrees out while the May Glamour I read at the gym suggested light cardigans for this month’s “cool” weather, I can see where all the confusion comes from.
See, most of the fashion “rules” are according to season, and rightfully so. After all, how ridiculous would you look trekking through the snow in a pair of white pants? They’d be muddied up, ruined and ready for the trash. But here, our seasons are pretty simple: hot, not as hot, and then cool (which lasts about 5 miniutes).
If Mannhanites were sweating like us this time of the year, they’d be sporting white pants too. In fact, white pants do start popping up in the Resort Collections, which hit stores in the beginning of the year. The calendar may not say it’s “officially” summer til mid-June, but our summer starts right about now. And so, your white-pant-wearing can too. Looking for a cute pair or a way to “transition” the look if you’re wearing it at night? Here’s a few looks. Just don’t break out the linen resort-like pants yet unless your’e going on a tropical cruise.
I posted the lookbook on the Zac Posen for Target collection awhile back and while it was supercute, I wasn’t salivating. Why? I’ve been let down by pretty much every other designer collaboration for Target beforehand. I’ve lusted after many a pieces only to find that in the person, the fabrics look flammable. And no matter how cute of a “design” it may be or who the designer is, I just won’t drop the money on fabric that looks like it’ll fall apart with a single touch.
Zac Posen for Target is So Not the Case. It’s amaze. In short? It’s amaze.
Yes, it was worth repeating.
This collection trumps all other previous designer collaborations by far. The fabric works and the fit is great. Albeit a little small (especially if you’re chestier up top) it’s quite the easy line to drive a hole right through your wallet. Which is exactly what happened to me.
Not going to dive into detail on the items I picked up, but a few that were lustworthy (had they been in my size):
I wasn’t too crazy about it from these shots but in person, that floral dress is just divine. The construction is nice and as for the metallic swimsuit, it was shockingly cute too. Can’t report on the fit as neither were in my size and most of the wares had already been ransacked (read: Go, Now.).
Only because I live in Arizona and it was 90 degrees out today did I not snap up these pieces. The black tuxedo jacket is nicely tailored and a great fit. As for the red moto leather jacket, positively lustworthy. And for $200, not a bad deal at all.
