We know that as it's no longer October, it's also not Breast Cancer Awareness Month. However, we found a beautiful necklace that is donating 15% of the sale price to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, so we thought we had to show it to you. The Pink Opal Touchstone Necklace from Fragments is a "a multi-faceted pink opal wrapped with delicate freshwater pearls and gold beading suspended on a 22” 14K gold vermeil hoop chain with heart-shaped clasp." The Shirt Snob doesn't think we've ever seen something so stunning. Consider helping out a bit more with breast cancer research by buying this stunning piece.

We all know it's easy to start using the address labels you get from different non profit organizations who want money, especially this time of year as you get a ton in the mail. But really, there isn't much stylish about that. So when we discovered the address labels from Iomoi, we realized that we really should have prettier ones. They sell a ton, including holiday styles, animal prints styles, ocean styles, pregnant and new mom styles, animal styles, and just cool ones in a variety of different colors and patterns. We think this is a great way to express your personality in a way other than your clothing. Iomoi also sells stationary, invitations and announcements, photo cards, calling cards, and more. Thanks to Cool Mom Picks for the link!

Hello lovely readers! We've been meaning to do this FOREVER, but because life took over, we forgot. Remember when we reviewed all those tees from the Red Cross? Well, they also sent us a necklace. As the Shirt Snob only wears gold, we thought we'd give it away to our readers. Sign up for our newsletter if you aren't already, and you will be entered to win it. We will be closing this give away on October 28th, so make sure to sign up before then!

The Shirt Snob is a huge fan of Halloween. We start decorating our house around Labor Day, drool over costumes for ourselves and our baby (can we buy more than one?), and we proudly wear the silliest socks imaginable with pictures of witches, cats, eyeball, and more throughout the month of October. We know it's a little weird, but we love the holiday that much. So imagine how we reacted when we discovered these purses from The Sak. All three are knit and are embellished with beads and sequins. They also have drawstring straps, a magnetic snap closure, are lined, have a zip pocket, and come with a coin purse. The three designs are Pumpkin, Scary, and Ghost. If you love Halloween as much as we do, you might want to consider these bags. They'd also be great for collecting candy if you're going along with some little ones!

We thought we'd have some fun with Accessory Friday this week, and so we're showing you a new discovery of ours-Angry Little Girl Totes! They are from a cartoon that we'd never heard of, but they sure are cute! There are a few: Get Your Own Tote, High Pain Threshold Tote, Fry Weenies Tote, Reversible F*@k Tote, Tired of B*tching Tote, War w/ Evil Tote, and the Hate Messanger Bag. If you are feeling angry, they are great bags to use.

For Accessory Friday this week, we're now moving away from shoes into yet another first for us, stationary! Specifically, thank you notes. We all know that you must send thank you notes for all the gifts you receive. Many people, however, are becoming less formal, writing email thank you notes or just skipping them entirely. And this is a shame, especially when you could be writing your note on the prettiest note cards around. Storybook sells 15 different styles of thank you cards, each classy and stylish. Our favorites are Sophia, Paige, and Nicole, but they are all beautiful. The company also offers to write your thank you notes for you. The recipient of the card may notice the handwriting isn't your own we think. But if you are not good with writing them or are too busy, this is an option for you as well.

We love headbands right now. They work so well at keeping our hair out of our babies hands and look so much nicer and are so much easier than pulling back our hair. So for Accessory Friday this week, we are going to show you some of our favorites! For something simple and classic, there's the Silk Headbands that come in nine colors (and notice how Heidi Klum wears them!). For a fun, floral print, consider the Floral Crochet Headbands by Cara Couture. If you are into skulls, there's the Silk Skull Print Headbands. The Shirt Snob's favorites are defintely the Tulip Print Silk Headbands. They are fun, a little retro, and perfect for fall!
