Heidi Klum wearing Saks Fifth Avenue Key To The Cure Tee ($40)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as a woman I support it fully especially this year since my aunt-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Lots of brands created special products for sale and are giving a percentage of the proceeds to help with breast cancer research. If there’s any products you think I should add, hit me up and I’ll add them to this post! Thanks.
