Why, good rainy ass Thursday to you all. Today, we’re gonna do things a little differently. We’re gonna get serious…for a minute. As you all know, cancer is a leading global concern and while strides have been made, there is much more ground to cover. Effective treatment is hard to come by, especially for those who don’t have access to top level healthcare. Enter Ralph Lauren’s Pink Pony program which spreads care for the underserved. For the 10th anniversary of Ralph Lauren’s Pink Pony, they reached out to 100 voices of the internet (including yours truly) to help spread the word. Please join myself, my 99 internet cohorts and Ralph Lauren in the fight against cancer.
1. You can text PINKPONY to 501501 to donate $10.00 (msg and data rates appliz)

Thank you, and best wishes to all my favorite tumblrererererers.
as mentioned earlier, this is christina from christina’s world. i’ve always been a fan of this painting because it makes me want to run around in a big old field. my grandparents used to keep a farm upstate with lots of space similar to this, there were toboggans in the winter and plenty of field frolicking in the spring and summer. christina probably isn’t the type to care too much about what she wears, she just needs it to be simple for hanging around the farm. think pastoral, think ralph lauren easy breezy dressing…a country hipster if you will…

in case you haven’t checked it out, the ralph lauren spring 2011 show is up on their website. nice way to start a lazy saturday morning.
continuing with willie wonka at the behest of kristina (http://lucaluca.tumblr.com) i give you violet beauregarde. in the book and both films, violet is depicted as fiercely competitive. this spirit is illustrated with her gum chewing titles and her friendly rivalry with fellow competitor, cornelia, ha. anyway, violet always seemed to be simple in contrast to her counterpart, veruca. that doesn’t mean she was exactly kind though. she doesn’t seem the type that would grow up to be a fashion plate so i’m sure her style would take the backseat to her competitions. however, simple doesn’t mean she couldn’t be chic.
