Go Red

February 3, 2012

Today is National Wear Red Day as part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign to promote hearth health and fight heart disease. While I wear red every day — power to the red heads! — here’s a few ways you can wear this fiery color today and every day.  Find the shade of red that works for you, be it with hues of orange, rust, brown or blue. It all works!

LOFT red striped top /Old Navy Rock Star Jeans (have in two colors, LOVE!) / Merona red trench coat Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC / ASOS madge suede loafer / OPI nails in fiercely fabulous / Charter Club pencil sheath dress (proceeds benefit Go Red) /

PS: Free beauty products, whaaaa?? Be sure to enter today to win your choice of product from Andalou, an awesome, organic beauty line.

Also, so beyond stoked that my easy make-up holder DIY received nearly 1,900 ‘pins’ on Michael’s Pinterest board. Want to create something similar? Here’s a coupon for $5 off any $5 purchase at Michaels!

      Epsom salt? Hmm, interesting! Love discovering other ways people do things. And totally agree with you regarding red… really can bring someone’s face to life, add vibrancy.
