From demure blush tones to innocent garden hues to quintessential Barbie pinks to searing fuchsias and bold magentas to the perfect shade of lipstick pink: October is the best month to show off your best pinks, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
I plan on carrying a pink bag or wearing something pink every day of the month, and I’m going to have a hard time deciding between all the rosy pieces that have suddenly popped up on my radar, like Nancy Gonzalez’s pink-hot crocodile tote, Prada’s sweet saffiano mini crossbody, Givenchy’s petal-pale Antigona bag, and Charlotte Olympia’s evening-ready satin pouch, to name just a few. But there’s no need to have 31 pink bags to successfully take October by storm, lest your bag closet look like the Mattel showroom got the best of it. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with repeating the same bag all month long. Call it the Bag Snob Pink Challenge! Tag your Instagrams and Tweets with #BagSnobPinkChallenge, and I’ll repost my favorites. Even if you prefer not to commit to an all-over pink bag, just a touch of my favorite shade on your bag or outfit will do. Look to a piece like Valentino’s Italian Pop shoulder bag to successfully show your strength, as well as support in raising awareness for a cause that affects each and every one of us.
Most importantly, don’t forget to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and share the organization’s link with friends and family!
