CG's Must List for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I don’t know about you, but I have been seeing a lot of pink lately. Not only am I a fan of the color, but a huge fan of this color’s meaning this month. As many of you know, it is, indeed, Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time for men and women to promote research and to honor the stories of those that have come into contact with this dreaded disease.

I've uncovered the best fashion and beauty products you can buy to support causes that benefit breast cancer research. 

Granted, there are no “wishes” in this particular column because I cannot think of better shopping than shopping for a cause. These are all “musts,” ladies!

Saks Fifth Avenue - Key to the Cure

Cause: Saks Key To The Cure, which has provided millions of dollars over 12 years to women’s cancer research.
Proceeds: 100 percent

Carolina Herrera designed the tree logo on the $35 long-sleeved T-shirt. 

I wear mine with black or gray skinny jeans, boots and my gold watch to keep the look elegant and tasteful.

Ann Taylor Loft - Live in Pink

Cause: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, an organization where 91 cents of every donation dollar goes toward research and prevention.
Proceeds: 25 percent of every Live in Pink item

With its smart peplum and bright color, I cannot resist this fun dress. It is a bit candy sweet, so I recommend toughening it up with a gray moto jacket and tights. 

Or you could embrace the Audrey Hepburn inspiration and don the pearls SEC ladies.

OPI - Pink of Hearts

Cause: In its sixth annual charity pairing for the disease, the nail color brand will donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.
Proceeds: $25,000 to Komen; $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer

With a package containing a pale pink polish and a sparkly pink polish, can a girl really go wrong? I would recommend trying one statement nail with the sparkly polish and keeping the rest of your fingers in the pale pink.

AVON - Pink Ribbon

Cause: Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, an organization that has raised $740 million dollars over the past 20 years to raise awareness, prevention and treatment.
Proceeds: 100% of net profits

This adorable $10 scarf would look perfect tied on your purse or backpack, don’t you think? Or truly go for the retro look and tie it around your neck like a la Jackie O.


Cause: Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Proceeds: $3 of every lipstick

Every girl needs a little Clinique in her life! Grab this super cute lipstick and pouch and feel good knowing that what you were going to buy anyways made a difference.

No matter what cause you are looking to support this month, Tigers, remember that it feels great and is so worth it! (And you might get a pretty thing or two in my favorite color out of it.)
