Pink Ribbon Buys
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and loads of top retailers have got in on the act, flogging their fashions for a good cause. It's a great excuse to add some pink to your wardrobe (like we need an excuse) while doing some good for charity. Here's our favourite pink ribbon finds...
The pink ribbons themselves: Glitter pin £1 and limited edition Julien MacDonald pin £5 both from Breast Cancer Care. Shoe charm pin $2.99 available at Payless and pink ribbon pin £1 from Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Add a touch of pink to your wardrobe with Burberry's pink pom pom scarf (£125 with 30% to Breakthrough Breast Cancer), Marks & Spencer's antique leather bowling bag (10% to Breakthrough Breast Cancer) and Warehouse's necklace (£10 with £2 min to Breakthrough Breast Cancer).
Asda supermarkets always do their best to help with their Tickled Pink campaign, selling loads of stuff with a pink ribbon theme and splitting the proceeds between charities. This years there's loads of great stuff in store, including this cute charm bracelet (£8) and fluffy trilby hat (£7).
Finally, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation has joined up with loads of retailers to offer fashion with a hint of compassion. The Lily Pulitzer / Ford Motors Pink Ribbon is available through their site for $35, while eBags has got in on the act by generously donating 10% from the sale of any pink bag to the foundation - and that includes special pink ribbon items like this fab laptop case ($29.99).
