Cypress Bayou Casino and Hotel, a presenting sponsor of Race for the Cure, will host VIPink, a gala event to celebrate the success and fundraising efforts of Race for the Cure participants, Saturday, April 13, in Baldwin, LA.

VIPink will be the pinkest party in town including a cocktail hour, dinner, and music.  Dress attire for the event is “Pink” Tie optional.  To get you all geared up for this fabulous event, we have a few outfit ideas to get you to think pink for next weekend’s event.

Coral Fun and Fabulous

Spice things up a bit with a different take on pink, coral.  It looks great on most skin tones and pairs well with unexpected color combinations.  This turquoise statement necklace is the perfect pop of color and accent to this fun little strapless dress.

Hot Pink is Timeless

A classic shape in an unexpected color, this great little dress goes cocktail very easily with a few rose gold accessories like a strappy sandal, chunky bangle and a shimmering gold eye.

Little Black Dress

Everyone has a little black dress. Why not pull out that old favorite and jazz it up with a few pink accessories, like a fabulous shoe or clutch and don’t forget to finish off your look with a great smokey eye and pink nails. By far this is the easiest way to be VIPink appropriate.

Race T-Shirt to Workout Tank Tutorial

Posted by on Mar 4, 2013 in Fashion | 0 comments

I have never been a fan of the look and feel of a t-shirt.  Yes, they are comfortable and functional for exercise but I can’t say they flatter many people.

If you are looking for a way to spruce up your race t-shirt this year, this quick NO SEW tutorial will have you cute and ready to run in no time.


T-Shirt (larger than you would normally wear it, I chose an XL t-shirt and I would normally wear a Medium)
Sharp Sciccors

1.  Cut off the neck of the T-Shirt, make sure to keep your cuts smooth so you don’t get jagged edges.

2.  Cut the Sleeves downward from the shoulder. Here you can determine how thick you want your straps to be.  For mine I made them about 1.5 inches thick.

3.  Turn the shirt over and cut a deep V or scoop shape out of the back to make it very open in the back.

4.  Cut off the bottom hemline and save it.

5.  Use the bottom hemline and knot one edge to the top portion of your back straps, tying them together.

6.  Weave the hemline up and over each of the straps until you get about a 3 inch, tighly woven section.

7.  Tie the end tightly and cut off the excess.



You are done. Now you can show off your toned arms while you Race for the Cure this year!

Make sure and show us your version of the Komen Acadiana Race for the Cure tank by posting them on our Facebook Wall!
