For all of us twenty-something college girls with pre-gravitized boobies, it’s time to wake up and smell the sterilized tools: breast cancer is common in women under the age of 30.

Today is Lee’s National Denim Day, an awesome yearly fundraiser that raises money for Breast Cancer. Not only are we huge advocates of raising money for Breast Cancer (learn more here), but we also LOVE denim and couldn’t be happier that it’s now socially acceptable to wear it on the top AND the bottom.
