Go Red in style...



I like it when good causes come up with a catchy campaign. And the American Heart Association's Go Red for womProdImageen campaign is one of those that speaks to the fashion head in all of us.

On Friday Feb. 5 (tomorrow!), the AHA encourages everyone to wear red -- whether it's a dress, a blouse or a head band -- to promote awareness about heart disease in women. I received my cute little "red dress" pen the other day and will be sporting it proudly.

 The whole thing begged the question of just what is the best way to wear a red dress. Even though I'm not a huge fan of red dresses, I can't argue with its versatility. Here's how each of the Divas would style up the dress to the left. 


NhutchesonRed dresses are a little jolting to me, so I'd try to make it a little earthy with a tan sandal and a simple pair of big gold hoop earrings.

Here's what the other Divas had to say....


Letitia, the consummate lady, says a red dress does not whisper, it screams. So, for a night at the opera she'd pair it with classic pearls and a pair of satin black pumps.

Shayes Stephanie would go out on a limb and mix colors. "Purple looks great with red as does blue," she said.

Cjenkins  #1 rule: "Don't wear a red dress with red shoes," Colleen said. She'd sport the red dress with a chunky black necklace and a fun clutch.

Dalia Dalia would order up a serving up leopard print --stat!  That sounds kind of gross, but this trench coat she suggested is cute!
