Fashion Fridays: Shop for the Cure {Breast Cancer Awareness Products!}

tdr fashion fridayHappy Friday, friends!

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as a female, I am especially drawn to this cause since at least 1 in 8 American women will develop some kind of invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s 12% – and that number is far too high for my liking.

And so far in 2014, there were a reported 2.8 million women in the US affected by breast cancer — either currently being treated or in recovery. 2.8 million — and that’s only a number of those who know they have it. Millions of other women and men may not realize that lump they’ve been putting off is actually breast cancer… which is why routine mammograms and breast exams are so important in ruling out anything potentially dangerous with your breasts and health. Speak up for your tatas!

Now, I’m all for standing up for breast cancer research but I am not one to put on running shoes and battle out a 5k. No thank you. I’m more of a cheer-on-the-sidelines-with-a-glass-of-wine kinda competitor, so running for a cure ain’t usually my jam. But I can shop for a cure, and thankfully there are plenty of brands out there who donate a generous chunk of proceeds (if not the entire proceeds) of certain purchases to breast cancer research organizations and nonprofits.

Shopping? That’s my cardio 🙂

So I’ve rounded up a list of awesome products, from beauty to clothes to funky accessories, all of which donate at least some – if not all – of the proceeds to a variety of different breast cancer research organizations or nonprofits. Now you can feel good about looking good — that’s a winner in my book!!
