In October, We Wear Pink

By Nellie Given

Breast Cancer awareness month is in full swing! Every year we dedicate the entire month of October to promoting breast cancer research. So while we are scrolling through Pinterest to find the best Halloween costume, we can also display our excitement to think pink. Throughout October, many clothing and beauty companies release special products to support research. A percentage of the proceeds they earn (sometimes 100%) go to breast cancer awareness organizations.

From comfy sneakers to cute earrings, companies like Tory Burch and Bobbi Brown have shown pink power. Here are just a few of current product releases that are positively pink:
