Shopping for a Cause

Some people do marathons, others do a Walk for a Cure. I donate or shop.

If you don’t already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. As a lover of pink (my second favorite color after purple), I knew that I would be purchasing something that benefits the research for a cure of breast cancer. I, and I’m sure many of you also, know someone who has been affected by cancer or lost someone close from it. Last year I realized during this month, a lot of companies put out a special collection in which the proceeds benefit a foundation who is working towards a cure.

During Summer, I saw Tory Burch’s new collection and I was instantly drawn to the york Buckle Tote. I knew it was something I wanted to get but it wasn’t an urgent matter so I just left it. I received an email on Monday inviting me to Shop for a Cure for Breast Cancer and included in the limited edition items was a pink york Buckle tote. I knew this was the one for me to get and it was also my way of giving back. Tory Burch is donating 20% of qualified purchases to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation up to $35,000.


I thought this bag would be a brighter pink but it’s the right color that I don’t mind walking around with and feeling like I’m saying “HEY! Look at me!”. I got the Small tote because I’m trying my best to carry around less items in my handbag. I will be using this bag for the rest of the month in support of Breast Cancer. If you want to support research and this bag isn’t your thing and maybe you’d purchase something else, check Polyvore’s list here to see if something else peaks your interest.

Have a great weekend!



From today until Monday, you can also receive 25% off your purchase during their Friends & Fans event with the code FRIENDLIEST, but it is not valid on anything from this collection or the York Buckle Tote and a few other items.
