Hello-Hello! Is everyone else beginning to experience those sure and certain signs of a changing season? We are definitely facing the harsh realities here at Princess InterGalactic HQ, hopefully they aren’t too dreary wherever you may be today.
Most readers are aware the month of October is now accompanied by an explosion of breast cancer awareness products, the majority are fundraisers for either the Komen Foundation or the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, although there are numerous other charitable endeavors.
We thought it might be fun to share a few pieces from Lacoste’s In The Pink collection; the items are available beginning October 1.
The tote looks great, we like the smaller logo and the inclusion of the second little bag. We found the flip-flops to be cute as well.
The oversized Croc polo… not so much.
The sunglasses look like they could be fun, a touch of whimsy.
Lacoste’s In The Pink group also includes a belt…
… and a wristwatch.
We are confident we could find a useful purpose for each and every item seen here, despite the logoage. (Heh-heh.)
Funds raised through the Pink Pony Foundation go towards cancer care and prevention. Polo Ralph Lauren offers several Pink Pony Totes, like the Organic Mini Tote shown below.
We like the candle, that is intriguing as a way of handling several gift obligations in the not-too-distant future.
We also appreciate the fact there are Mens’ products offered, moving beyond the silly notion only women will make purchases from this kind of collection. Below, the Men’s Classic-Fit Pink Pony Polo
This shirt also comes in white, and is available in the Custom-Fit style as well. There is more Pink Pony Merchandise at Polo Ralph Lauren, it makes for enjoyable surfing/shopping with an eye toward helping a good cause.
What is the Princess offering for Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
Yeppers, this is the versatile, indestructible Original Dean-O tote from the good folks at Scout. We have long liked this bag, both of use several of them. Being able to contribute 30% of proceeds from sales of these to such a good cause sealed the deal for us: one is now atop our little mountain personal collection of totes.
It seem wise to simply say almost the entire post is Pretty in Pink, don’t you think?
Before we fly, two quick tidbits, the first a follow-up to our post offering a Sneak Peek at 3 New Lilly Pulitzer Lines. The delightful author of the story referenced in our post, Julie Naughton at WWD, was kind enough to post comments answering some questions pondered by readers. Spotty Prep wondered about the eye shadow in the upcoming MAC in Lillyland collection. Julie offered this insight:
“… while the eyeshadows (and the rest of the collection) appear quite bright in the packaging, they do go on fairly sheer.”
Our thanks to Julie for providing us with some inside info!
Also today, news that one of TP’s alltime favorite designers is now a United States citizen: Carolina Herrera.
“I have been here for many years, and I love this country very much. I love New York and everything about America. It was very emotional for me.”
We’ll end on this nifty note!
