The weeks are long but simultaneously seem to fly. Friday-you’ve been waiting for it all week, then it comes to slap you in the face when you least expect it! By Friday, I think everyone can use a little inspiration! In keeping with last Friday’s “friday focus” post, I want to share with you an event coming up next Tuesday at Pisces (home of my favorite martini!) to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Did you know that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the WORLD’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer? Neither did I.
This organization is so powerful and the Charlotte presence is amazing!! Most of us know someone who has been affected by one or more of these diseases. I have friends and family that I am so thankful to say have fought Leukemia and live full and incredible lives today!
If you are local, I invite you to join my inspiring friends that have organized this event!
ORGANIZERS: Ellery Turner and Andrea Crane
WHERE: Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge
WHEN: Tuesday, October 22 at 5:30
WHY: To benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: ALL proceeds go towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission of finding a cure for blood cancers.
A minimum $10 donation gets you access to the lounge, one drink ticket and one raffle ticket to win one of three $25 gift certificates to Pisces. Additional raffle tickets for more prizes are available to purchase; prizes include, a gift card to Splurge Boutique, two personal training sessions from Fit Central, a golf foursome at Firethorne Country Club and more! Light hors d’oeuvres will be served and the bar will be open for additional drink purchases. I hope you will come out! I am particularly excited to enjoy a Far East Manhattan which is one of mixologist Bob Peter’s specialty concoctions.
I hope to recreate the Far East Manhattan for you soon! Although there’s no way it will be quite as refined as Bob’s masterpiece!
After that martini buzz sets in, I will be setting my hopes high to win a Splurge gift certificate! This local boutique, owned by Ann Moore and Laura Schwedo, just opened in February in the Myers Park Center on Providence Road. They carry some of my favorite designers including Tracy Reese, Laundry by Shelli Segal, DL1961 (BEST DENIM EVER), C&C California, Michael Kors and much more. They also carry jewelry by local designer Addison Weeks. I am obsessed with this chalcedony necklace!! I can’t wait to go check out their selection. You can find them on Facebook here! If you stop by next week, they are offering 25% off all black and orange items since you know, Halloween is upon us!
I leave you with a little orange and black inspiration to get you in the mood!
Kate Spade Saturday Buckle Over Mini in Flame $90
Paula Bianco Chunky Knit Wrap Scarf $84
This scarf is the epitome of cozy! I want to swaddle myself in it.
J.Crew Janey Patent Flats in Burnished Rust on sale for $130
These flats would be adorable with skinny jeans or ankle pants!
This Michael Michael Kors Selma Satchel in burnt orange is a classic. I own a similarly colored Coach bag and carry it more than you would ever imagine.
For a wild card pairing, I really like orange and cobalt blue together!

Would you believe me if I told you that even my luggage is orange? Hey it’s one way to avoid taking the wrong suitcase home with you from the airport. Been there, done that.
If orange makes you squeamish, I encourage you to give it a try! You can always ease into it with an accessory.
So there you have it. To those of you who live nearby, I would love to see you next Tuesday at Pisces! It’s for a really great cause and a fun way to mix up your work week. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be dressed in orange!
Have a great weekend everyone!
