Editor's Journal: Welcome to the issue

Calling all dreamers back to earth. Why? Because earth is where dreams come true. You have spent countless hours thinking about your dream, creating it and crafting it in your mind. Now it's time to take this somewhat precise yet vague idea and make it a reality. The world is patiently waiting on you to take the next step. How ever big or small your dream may be, it is worth carrying out. Take our Chit Charity guest, Kristina Lee Grandstaff as an example.
She founded an organization called Freedom Forth. We are truly inspired by her journey to end Human Sex Trafficking in NYC. To raise awareness on this issue she uses many different media outlets, fashion being one of them. Stay tuned for more on her work, life and Freedom Forth's upcoming event: She is Clothe in Strength. This fashion show benefit will be held on June 16th in the Meatpacking District.
Also in June, the CFDA, Council of Fashion Designers of America, is honoring Marc Jacobs with one of its most prestigious awards: the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. The CFDA Fashion Awards is one of the biggest events highlighting American fashion and designers and will be taking place on June 6 in New York. Join us as we take a closer look at Jacobs' flourishing career in DESIGNER WATCH.
The flowers are in full bloom and it is finally getting hot - really hot and humid to be exact. But this doesn't mean that your style has to be limited to a bikini and a portable fan. Check out our TREND WATCH and STYLE FILE posts to keep your cool and look good doing it! Follow us on Twitter @fashionwacny for even more fashion tips and inspirations from our partners.
Here's to a summer well lived!

Just a thought...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in other; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
