What is a Certified Mastectomy Fitter?

Wearing: Sevenly Hoodie | Gucci Loafers | What Goes Around Comes Around

I've been receiving so many questions about what my new 'day' job is, with my partnership with Sevenly there is no better time to reveal what I've been up to. So many of you know I've partnered with Sevenly before and their shop with a cause theme is something I truly love to support. This month I am supporting those fighting Cancer. Coincidentally this coincides with my new day job. I am now working as a certified mastectomy fitter at University of Penn Medicine in Philadelphia. In a nut shell a mastectomy fitter handles the fitting of breast prostheses and post mastectomy services. Everything from fitting, and adjusting their symmetry to finding a comfortable bra they can wear with their prostheses. This opportunity kind of found me so I decided to take the gamble. Now I'm so happy I did. It is incredibly rewarding helping women of all ages feel good about their breasts again! The best part about my job is getting to share it with all of you now. Not many women even know about this service so it is definitely something I wanted to share. If you or anyone you know is looking for symmetry and balance after having a mastectomy please visit Jay Ann Intimates . Also check out Sevenly to shop a variety of different causes. 

NYFW Insights 2017

If you followed along my NYFW journey you know that I saw a tremendous amounts of stripes and ruffles on the runway This is nothing new for fashion but designers are definitely getting even more creative with this trend. Another thing I loved seeing was muted pinks and loud pops of color! This is going to be huge for me since I tend to have a more monochrome color pallet. My favorite new trend I saw had to be the replacement of last years corset trend with a sweater tied at the waist. Creatures of Comfort make this look effortless. As always Chromat is one of my favorite shows for the way they challenge diversity, race, size, and even gender. I love that the brand continuously pushes to stand out in that way. Not to mention seeing Jordyn Woods walk was amazing! (see it here)   All in all this was another impressive and thrilling NYFW. It was a crazy week's worth of inspiration overload, and I can't wait to see what's coming next!
