No, Pink Ladies doesn't mean the cute and popular singing gang led by tough Rizzo in the 1970's movie Grease. As I little girl, however, I did always long to be Stephanie in Grease II and sing on a tall ladder "Cool Rider" as I transformed my pink lady jacket into a tough, black shiny jacket as the man of my dreams watched with desire! But, even though my dream never came true, I still can be Pink Lady, just of a different kind. The difference is this type of Pink Lady is a more powerful one than I ever could have imagined!
This year as we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness, we all can play a part by simply wearing the color pink just to draw attention to the cause. There's also some clever ways you can donate your resources to research while you stock your closet and accessorize you home.
So ladies, it's time to become a Pink Lady!
