Nothing if not charitable!

You'd have to live under a really, really, really big boulder to be unaware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. There are endless ways to shop for the cause (and we're not talkin' medal pins - not that there's anything wrong with it...). There's Rado's Sintra Jublile Pink watch, Cartier's Love Charity Bracelet, Coach's Bridle Classic in Pink Lizard, Van Cleef and Arpels' limited ed. bracelet Byzantine Alhambra 3 motif Pink Gold, and on, and on, and on... But despite the neverending list of pink products, there's one item in particular that had H&B hightailing it (in the name of charity, bien sur).

Generally, I really prefer to endorse products that donate a majority of the profits to the cause (shout outs to Carolee who is donating 100% of the profits of its celeb designed "Words to Live By" bracelets to The Breast Cancer Research Fund and Philosophy which will donate 100% of the profits from its "Shower for the Cause" to the Women's Cancer Research Fund) but I am making an excepton because while I wish the brand was donating more, (it's better than nothing, right?), it's far too haute to omit.

"It" girl and designer dahling of the moment, Tory Burch has the hottest limited edition bag out right now. How hot? After a total perusing score, H&B ran down to her store (hurrah...they had just gotten them in!) to nab one for la petite H&B (a pinkoisseur if ever there was one!). Down at her Elizabeth Street boutique, the bag was front and center and frankly the picture doesn't even do it justice. Hot fuscia with metallic trim it is a show-stopper (show, show-stopper). Swoon alert! It is phenomenal!

Petite H&B loved it (as I knew she would!) and will no doubt be walking on pink clouds. Available online and in her boutiques (ed note: petite H&B - stop reading here!) for $195, it's a must for all you haute givers out there.
10% will benefit Light One Little Candle Foundation.
