What is the Love + Heart Collection all about?
Well 7 years ago, I lost my beautiful mom to CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) FAR TOO YOUNG. It happened from a strange virus that had attacked her heart and lungs, she was eventually diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy with put her into heart failure. After waiting until she was "ill" enough for several years, she was finally put on the heart transplant list. She was flown between Regina + Edmonton for treatment and care. The Mazankowski Heart Institute in Edmonton is where transplants are preformed in Western Canada. She unfortunately did not make it to her transplant, but she received such amazing care while there... As a thank you to this amazing place, that we are very lucky to have access to... I have put together a yearly fundraiser in her memory.
~ The LOVE + HEART collection ~ is designed with the intentions to spread love through pieces of clothing. A portion of every piece sold in this collection will be collected and donated to The Mazankowski Heart Institute in memory of my mom. Last year we raised $1000 and I am hoping to raise even more this year. February is Heart Health Month around the world, February 29 (Leap Year) is also my moms birthday. So it is only fitting we dedicate the month of love + hearts to her. All sales from the heart + collection from Jan 13 - Feb 28 will go to this amazing place ~ The Mazankowski Heart Institute. We hope to help others and their families on their journey, the same journey we once walked.
Well, what can I say, I love to shop. I love the thrill of finding unique pieces that make me feel great. With this passion and my love for retail therapy and having 2 little fashionistas of my own, My Girlfriend's Closet was created. I strongly believe your style should be as unique as you are and looking great shouldn't have to break the bank. I am always on the lookout for new brands and styles for ladies and girls. Brands and styles that not only make you look and feel great, but are well priced, well made and most importantly comfortable. Unique as each of us are, so are the items I carry. So if you see something you love, snatch it up before its gone. Items are limited - to keep them unique and will always be changing. I love helping women look gorgeous and feel confident, we're all in this crazy thing called life together, RIGHT!? So nothing makes me smile more than women supporting women.
Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding sizing, fit or if you need a hand putting something together for something special in your life. I am always happy to help!
Happy Shopping! xo
