Now back to business. October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you can support this worthy cause and the many breast cancer research, advocacy and charitable groups by buying any of the beautiful products I'll feature this month, many of which were created by emerging and notable designers specifically for this cause. So the timing is perfect to be settling into my new Berkeley loft so that I can start thinking pink.
Speaking of loft though, Ann Taylor LOFT brought together three of its favorite jewelry designers - Robin Renzi for Me&Ro, Kara Ross and Anna Sheffield – to create exclusive accessories benefitting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Ann Taylor Loft will donate $5 from the sale of each of these pieces. I really love the mosaic bracelet (right, US$29.63 after 25% discount) created by Kara Ross. And I just bought the Anna Sheffield necklace (bottom, US$34.50) in their store (appears to be sold out online).
Also if you buy a $25 LOFTcares card, you will get 20% off your purchase of $100 or more and 90% of the card’s purchase will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. And everytime you spend $100 or more through November 15th, show your card and get 20% off your entire purchase (perhaps a great way to get some early holiday shopping done). I really love some of the pieces in their new collection like the Sujean tote. It is so charming, the picture reminds me of my youngest sister and I'm quite fond of the name (top left, US$22.13 after 25% discount). So go do some smart shopping for a cause.
