As most of us know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Of course, it saddens me to think that a disease is so widespread that an entire month is dedicated to it. However, at the same time, I think it is absolutely wonderful to see socialites, business men, celebrities, designers and “every day people” like you and me coming together to raise awareness and money for the cure. Linea Pelle, a Savvy favorite of ours is going above and beyond to help with the cause. Linea Pelle has launched the “life is beautiful” campaign for breast cancer awareness. This Savvy brand will donate 25% of the purchase price of any of the “life is beautiful” handbags from October 1, 2008 – September 30, 2009 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Clearly, this is fabulous. However, better yet, the handbags are fabulous! Vlad, Megs and I had the opportunity to see the bags in person, and I have to say, there are a few I would love to have. The handbags available in the “life is beautiful” line are the Linea Pelle Dylan Tote, Dylan Clutch and Dylan Wallet. Each style of handbag is available in black or fuschia. The black Dylan Tote or Clutch has fuschia lining. I love the contrast of colors. But beyond that, the Dylan Tote is perfect for daily use just as it can be used while heading out to grab coffee or drinks with some friends. The space offered in this bag is great. And when I look for a tote, I need one with at least one side pocket, which this tote certainly has. A bag with lots of room like that can make it difficult to grab my keys or lip gloss quickly so a side pocket is crucial.
Personally, I think the fuschia wallet is gorgeous and spunky, all at once. And by the way, I just said this before, but fuschia is everywhere!!! Just yesterday Megs wrote about the Dior Medium 61 Tote while I wrote about the Kale Stella Shoulder Bag, both handbags sported the spicy fuschia color. Let’s be honest, we all love handbags. Wouldn’t it be great to purchase an amazing designer handbag that not only serves as a way to carry your stuff around and get noticed, but also helps raise money for Breast Cancer? If you need just one more reason to buy one of the “life is beautiful” items, how about this, buy this week only and shipping is FREE!!! Not a bad deal at all. Browse your options through Linea Pelle.
