It’s October, and at least in the States that means that one of the things we’re “celebrating” is Breast Cancer Awareness. (I know, celebrating isn’t the right word. Honoring? Acknowledging? Giving towards?) Maybe, like my family, you’ve been personally affected by breast cancer. Maybe it’s something you’re scared of, or maybe you just like the idea of part of your shopping dollars going to a good cause.
No matter the reason, I have great news! There are so many brands and stores giving you the chance to use your shopping to give to breast cancer charities. (I call it shopping Pink because of the use of the color pink in all the breast cancer charities, but call it what you like!) I know that shopping may not be the best way to give, but I think this is a great way if you’re going to be buying something that you already wanted, or planned on, or want to give, or to do in someone’s name. Any giving back is a great way in my view.
There are so many places to use your shopping to shop Pink, but I’m profiling just a few (really one here). As more opprotunities and things I love come with a chance to shop pink I of course will keep you in the loop!
As you may know, I’m a Sarah Flint ambassador, and I could not be more proud to partner with a company. Besides being woman owned, besides design details that cater to what I really need in shoes (arch support, steel enforced heel, a bit more room in the toe boxes), I love the community that comes with this company. The founder, Sarah, listens, uplifts, and genuinely cares about the women who buy her shoes. And this month there are 3 (very chic) ways to shop pink!
The first way to shop pink at Sarah Flint is this chic pink pair of the infamous Natalie flats! Light pink snake-embossed nappa leather, a pointed toe with an asymmetrical bow, that’s handcrafted in Italy, these shoes are so feminine and chic (long after October!). This month 20% of all net proceeds of this shoe will be donated to Touch, the Black Breast Cancer Alliance, which collaboratively works towards eradicating Black Breast Cancer. You can shop this special Natalie here
Another way to Shop Pink at Sarah Flint? This limited edition Chateaux Garden Scarf (which comes in 2 sizes!). It’s 100% silk with hand-rolled edges, made in Italy, and it’s the most gorgeous pattern, of course featuring the color pink. This month 20% of net proceeds of this scarf will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc, whose mission is to provide early detection, education, and support services. You can buy this scarf here.
The last way to shop pink this month at Sarah Flint? Use my code SARAHFLINT_BAINVESTMENTPIECE while shopping any full price shoe and $50 will be given to one of the Breast Cancer charities listed above. While I’m a heel lover, I can truly say that my Sarah Flints are some of the most comfortable shoes I have (it’s the arch support!)
Another one of my favorite shops is donating to Breast Cancer this month: Cult Gaia. Cut outs. Interesting shapes. On trend shoes and bags. I’ve pulled some of my faves for you to shop-these are perfect for upcoming holiday parties (or gifts even to you! I’m considering the gold set for New Years!):

I truly hope that breast cancer has not affected any one you love. And if your form of giving back involves shopping I cannot recommend the above products enough!
Wishing us all a week of ease and amazing shoes!
