It’s always such a touchy topic to broach each October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Because it’s sad that we all probably know someone affected by the disease in one way or another. The good thing is new developments are now made all the time towards a cure, and all of the initiatives like this one by White House Black Market help tremendously in funding for research. Every little bit helps, and if you love to shop, why not help out at the same time, right? There are sooooo many products now that it can certainly be overwhelming, so I’m not gonna post gobs and gobs of stuff this month. You’ll just see my favs every now and then, deal?
White House Black Market (a fav store of mine because, hello, I’m such a sucker for those two “colors”) has developed the Give Hope Collection this season, and two of my fav items in the collection are the necklace ($68) and the (reversible…to black, duh!) tote ($68). There is also a cute butterfly keychain ($15) and floral tee ($38) you just have to check out! The company will donate up to $250,000 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization dedicated to empowering all women affected by breast cancer to live as long as possible with the best quality of life.
I’m actually pretty gaga over this snake-textured tote because I could see myself carrying it everywhere. I’m not much of a pink person myself, so I think the pink lining inside the black would be absolutely adorable! Plus, a cosmetics case comes with it, so you can hardly beat that. I like the sterling silver “Hope” necklace, too, because it’s so dainty and stands for so much. What a clear and concise message to wear around for others to see. And it would go with all of your black and white outfits, too. Wink, wink.
