goredlogo.jpgIn recognition of National Wear Red Day today, we urge you to wear red to show your support for women. By wearing red and making a donation, you’ll help the American Heart Association support ongoing research and education about women and heart disease! Don’t have any cute red dresses? go for the RM by Roland Mouret moon dress, I just got mine and it is divine! If red dresses are not your thing, why not go for one of these tres chic and red bags to show your love! I’ll be sporting my Hermes Red Lizard Kelly bag and making a donation to this very worthy cause! Did you know heart disease is the #1 killer of American women (and men!)? You can also show your support by shopping at the Go Red for Women website! Net proceeds will go towards the Go Red for Women movement.

What To Wear
National Wear Red Day has its own dress code. Wear your favorite red clothes or accessory – a red blouse, a red dress pin, a fabulous red handbag – put on red lipstick, or sport a red tie and red socks. Go red in your own fashion to show your support for women and the fight against heart disease.

Why You Should Wear Red!

Too few people realize that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women (and men), but the good news is heart disease can often be prevented. Spreading the Go Red For Women message “Love Your Heart” raises awareness of heart disease and empowers women to reduce their risk.

Gryson Spring 2008 Bags

Kelly and I met bag designer Joy Gryson and her husband Peter on one of our trips to New York last year and absolutely adored them. The fact that Joy is one of the most talented bag designers (remember when Marc Jacobs‘ bags made you weep? Joy was the force behind classics like the ultra popular Venetia bag!) is no secret but many don’t know the support she receives from her hubby Peter on the business end of the Gryson line. Who better to watch your back than the guy you had a baby with right? (the couple have a cute little tot named Olivia). For Spring, Gryson’s Sydney bag in supple Italian lambskin is edgy and fun. It has funky hidden vertical pockets on the front exterior and a shoulder strap on hinge with a detachable body strap (for our college students!) I love the spring-y green color contrasted with lavender suede detail, at $875, Gryson Sydney Shoulder Bag fits the most requested bag price range from our readers (under $1,000). Seriously, there are no better bags than Gryson at this price point. Gryson’s version of the must have summer canvas bag, the Josey, has a coating which gives it a patent sheen, trimmed in shiny white leather, it’s the ultimate summer indulgence! Gryson Josey Twill/Leather Bag-$775 at Saks.
