a cute idea for halloween

October 23rd, 2014 · No Comments


A few days before Halloween, I wanted to put a really great product on your radar.  This trick-or-treating bag from FEED supports UNICEF by donating $1 from every purchase to UNICEF’s nutrition programs. 

If you want to buy it, it’s here.  It’s $18, which is only slightly more than those plastic pumpkin trick-or-treat bags you can buy at drugstores.  And what a great way to teach your kid about nutrition and giving back than to work it into one of their favorite holidays. 

I love my FEED bag — in the past six months, I’ve worn it in outfit posts here, here, here and here.  There are many more expensive options in my closet, but it’s bag that I reach for constantly.  I get more compliments on it than any other bag in my closet — it’s beautiful, people are familiar with the wonderful cause that it supports, and it’s an example of really lovely fashion that also helps the world. 

We’re not taking him trick-or-treating this year, but next year, Bear will be proudly sporting one of these on Halloween!  And I’ll be sharing his costume in the next few days, so keep an eye out!
