WHAT: Ralph Lauren FTBC fitted polo
WHY: As part of the ongoing fight against breast cancer, the CFDA has teamed up with Net-A-Porter and Susan G. Komen for the Cure to launch Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The plan?

Komen for the Cure and other FTBC supported organizations--and you'll be able to loosen up a bit from the your daily work wear. Done and done!

WHY: Ok, technically this is a men's accessory, a portfolio meant for those important business papers, cards, iPhones and such--but we're going to go ahead and claim it as ours (hey, it's worked for button-downs, cardigans, watches, and even jeans, right?). The deliciously luxe ostrich skin with the no-nonsense shape and gold clasp would make a perfect oversized clutch, just right for tucking under your arm while sporting that impeccable oxford, trousers, and of course, a killer pair of heels...
