This October, try going pink for a great cause!

Posted Oct 12 2009 10:00pm


This October, buy something pink from one of the Boutiques below, and they will donate a portion to Breast Cancer Awareness. From pink umbrellas to pink perfumes, there are lots of opportunities to Think Pink.

When you shop at Repeat Possessions’ online clothing and accessories boutique,10% of sales from all PrivacyWear items will be donated to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure and Divas For a Cure foundations. The Privacy label is more than a fashion statement; it is a statement of values. The driving force of this brand is to bring breast cancer awareness to the fashion marketplace. Privacy uses a generous portion of their annual revenue to fund breast cancer prevention and research. When you purchase from the Privacy collection, it announces your “Commitment to the Cure.”
It allows them to provide free mammography screening for underprivileged women, and to fund breast cancer education and clinical trials.

Privacy believes in quality, for their apparel and for human life. They pursue a “double bottom line”: People as well as profit. PrivacyWear 100% soft cotton burn out and crew neck tees are clothes that speak for you. Celebs who’ve been spotted wearing PrivacyWear include Jennifer Garner, Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba, Hayden Panettiere, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Jamie Pressley and Heidi Montag. Tees retail on for $46-$48.

This year for Breast Cancer Awareness, PRVCY has also created the “Breast Cancer Jean”. This jean donates 100% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research and free Mammograms. While donating and helping the cause feels good on the inside, these jeans feel and look amazing on the outside.
Like all other PRVCY Jeans, the “Breast Cancer Jean” has been created to lift the bottom, while slimming your thighs and elongating your legs.( Could we ask for a better jean?) This signature five pocket jean has pink accent threads with dark blue threads of stitching on the back pocket, representing faith, love, and hope. On the inside of the front zipper is a pink “I Support” tag and also has pink stitching on the back belt loop. Fabric: 72% Cotton, 18% Elasterrel. Machine wash. Made in USA. Jeans retail for $194 at

Repeat Possessions will also donate 10% of all sales of their pink Kewicases–the handy ID/cash/credit card case that clips to your keychain–to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Great for yoga/exercise class or quick travel trips when you only need the essentials, Kewicases keep you from getting bogged down by a heavy purse or bulky wallet. Retail $8.

Mélange Perfume
Mélange Perfume will donate 30% of all sales of their portable Pink Solid Perfumes in floral fragrances such as Honeysuckle, Iris, Lilac, Polynesia, Frangipani, Japanese Tea Rose and Melati Jasmine to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., (Mélange owner, Denise Estrada’s grandmother died of breast cancer — in large part because she did not receive regular screening.)
Mélange’s Solid Perfumes are a combination of fragrance notes and essential oils formed in a base of natural Beeswax and Jojoba Oil. The result is a perfectly solid perfume that glides onto the skin without feeling sticky. Each note and blend is sheer perfection on its own or can be combined with others to create your own custom fragrance. Retail $15 for .35 oz.

GenerationNecks, a brand new line of fun and fashionable all pewter necklaces, is donating 20% from the sales of their pink heart necklaces to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Heart pendant hangs from a 24-inch chain. The “Love” charm comes on a 15-inch chain. Retail $30 or $50 for the set.
