This tank is adorable. So unique. The sheer hearts scattered across it are so much fun. I rocked this under a grey cardigan and the hearts peeping out from underneath are the perfect twist to a standard, simple, staple camisole.

Lucia Tristao Designs for a Cure

Accessory designer Lucia Tristao has been greatly affected by cancer, having lost her father and two aunts to the disease. Determined to help find a cure through her art, Lucia designed a headband subtly adorned with a pink ribbon and secured with a rhinestone band. Lucia will donate 20% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Awareness programs in the hopes of contributing to the cure. Lucia Tristao designs are sold exclusively at The Plaza Beauty by Warren-Tricomi.

On my recent visit to NY, I was at The Plaza and fell in love with Lucia Tristao's headbands and accessories. They are so Gossip Girl...I couldn't live without one. I've been hesitant to pick up on the headband trend because I have short hair and I didn't think it would look right.

I tried on Lucia Tristao's headbands at The Plaza and was surprised at how light they were. Normally headbands give me headaches because they are so tight and squeeze behind my ears, but these are super soft and gentle. They are loose, but not too loose that they don't hold your hair back.

The one I purchased is black and has a sequenced bow on it. I've worn it to work with a dress or out on the weekends with a tank and jeans. I will definitely be getting my use out of this. Next time, I think I'm going for an even bigger bow!

Haute Betts Liberation Bracelet

Haute Betts, the one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry line, has created the "Liberation" bracelet on behalf of the breast cancer month of October, to give women all over the world, a chance to aid and support mothers & daughters who are fighting to survive from breast cancer. This bracelet is made of precious pink shell circular beads to symbolize the never ending fight for "Action, Advocacy, and Awareness" in breast cancer. This bracelet is sold at participating stores and on Haute Betts will donate 35%of proceeds to The Young Survival Coalition.

This bracelet is even more beautiful in person! It's very detailed and unique. The pink bow is such a dainty touch and the coral-ish pink color is super girly. This bracelet looks good by itself or paired with additional ones.
