Shopping for a Cause 

Breast Cancer Awareness month officially kicked off October 1st and the only thing we love more than fashion, is fashion for a cause. With a pink ribbon on everything from cleaning products to socks, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Here's a sampling of what we think are the month's best offerings:

- Brighton Collectibles is donating $10 for each $50 spent on their stylish bracelet!
