My boyfriend and I were watching Brain Games last night, an educational AND ENTERTAINING (there is such a thing) program on the National Geographic Channel. The episode's focus was on compassion. As humans, our brains harness this inborn trait to survive. With giving compassion, we recoup it later on. Acting otherwise separates us from important reciprocal relationships with others, making it impossible to exist.
It's a no-brainer. Helping others helps you! That's the message I get from Union & Fifth's charitable setup.
Union & Fifth is for the fashionable philanthropist! The site has an unbeatable selection of designer steals that are too good to resist. With every purchase, Union & Fifth donates a whopping 75% of proceeds to charity.
Not only can you purchase some new Louboutin Stilettos, but you can also donate your designer oldies to sell on the website, too. Union & Fifth sends you a postage bag, you fill it with your designer items, and they photograph and list them. The coolest part is that you choose the charity your item's proceeds go towards!

THE LOOK: Compassion FTW
+ Chanel Handbag (prize for the winner)
In celebration of NYFW Fall/Winter 2015, Union & Fifth is running a contest to win a beautiful Chanel bag, a 2 night stay in the city with flights, runway show tickets, and exposure on their website. Good deal for supporting a great cause!
My mood board entry bases itself on the sporty-chic trend. With the chilly weather, I paired some sheer, tangerine-colored tights with a pair of Comme Des Garçons-esque mary janes. The board displays a bright and eclectic mix that is totally my style!
Interested? Follow Union & Fifth on all of their social media outlets. Oh, and don't forget to shop!
I suppose it's competition season for me, huh?
