First of all I hope any father’s reading this blog (I’m sure not too many) had a great Dad’s Day! Special shout out to Pop my grandfather AND main man, and my uncle Chuck without you both my male reader population would be zero.

Blogger babble: My grandfather is actually my legally adopted father as well. Not only has the man survived a shark attack posted in Sports Illustrated, ran numerous companies, held my family together, he also adopted my sometimes difficult to deal with but stylish self. The role model of my life who makes all and every one of my dreams come true is a simple and humble man. However, it’s pretty difficult shopping for his gifts considering Hallmark doesn’t have a happy pop/grandfather/legal father card. It’s ok though I make it work. The purpose of this post is not to come off sappy or ramble on. I just wanted to point out how amazing of a man my father figure is. I couldn’t have asked for a better dad if I tried. Although, you refuse to get rid of those awful orange corduroy pants that you swear are brown I love you still. I could never fully explain all you mean to me. As CHEESEY as it sounds (yes I will use the word cheesy considering my grandfather has a cheese company is 75 and still killing the game) you taught me the best accessory is my smile. Thanks for supplying that smile for the last 25 years.
Closing thought: smile=best accessory however, handbags and shoes=pretty good too

Special thanks to the help of my models: Pop (the man, the myth, and the legend) and my three beautiful cousins: Marissa, Emily, and Noelle.

Hi I’m Rachel... Born and raised in New Jersey where I received my Master’s Degree in Communications, had my first job experiences, and realized my purpose in life was to help make a difference. In 2013, I moved to New York City where I had dreams of being in the fashion industry. I took a fashion PR workshop and reached out to a speaker I was inspired by for an internship. Elle Communications helped me discover my love for social good brands and fashion with purpose. For a year I was one of Diane von Furstenberg’s assistants which was an experience I will be forever grateful for. Working for a fashion legend I never learned so much in such a short period of time. It helped me grow both professionally and personally immensely. I lost my aunt to lung cancer six years ago and became involved with Free to Breathe a nonprofit organization with a mission to double lung cancer survival by 2022.  They wrote me the most beautiful letter about my involvement since 2011. I am now currently fundraising for this year’s walk and team captain to Deb’s Dreamers.  I have raised over $5000.00 for lung cancer research from 2011-2016. Another organization I feel strongly about is The Pajama Program. A non-profit that offers at-risk children books and pajamas so they can enjoy bedtime. I have been a volunteer reader giving me the opportunity to both read and see the process of when the children receive pajamas and get to take a book home of their choice. The program is amazing and I look forward to participating in the upcoming Pajama Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Continuously trying to find a way I can put my love for social good, fashion, and communications together to make the most impact.
