The dress cardigan.

After our dress post a few weeks ago we had a some questions from you guys about what to put over a dress. The answer is a dress cardigan. There was a cute little bridal shower dress and we suggested wearing a dress cardigan with it. Here’s where the questions came in…

Q. What’s a dress cardigan? A cardigan that’s dressy, OR a cardigan that you wear over a dress?

A. Plain and simple! It’s one that you wear over a dress. It hits at the perfect spot at your waist. It’s not too long, and not too short. It creates the perfect balance when you’re wearing a dress (or a skirt) and need or want to be covered up. It’s that easy.

Why wear a dress cardigan?

Having dress cardigans on hand in a few colors will take the stress out of trying to figure out what to throw on over your dresses. Let’s say you’re going somewhere where you need to be modest, and covered, or you’re just a freeze baby. Or, you hate your arms (we’ve heard that one plenty of times). Or let’s say it’s just the perfect piece to complete the outfit when a pashmina just won’t do the trick.  All of these are good reasons to have one on hand.

A few good ones to keep on hand…

Wear RED This Friday
The color RED.  It makes us think of love… Red roses, red hearts, Valentines Day – it’s like the poster child color for the month of February. It’s also THE color to wear this Friday, February 2 to show support for the American Heart Association. Why? Because this Friday is GRFW Day (Go Red For Women). The American Heart Association is encouraging people to wear RED to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and to help save lives. By wearing RED you can join in the fight against heart disease and stroke. It’s a little something you can do to show support, because when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do.

Picture it – a whole sea of people, nation wide, wearing RED – it’s powerful and it’s pretty – just like women.
Chances are you know someone affected by heart disease and stroke, because about 2200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day. That’s in average of one death every forty seconds. Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds unnecessarily — because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action. Raise awareness and fund the fight against cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Got RED?!?
If your closet is like most peoples, it’s probably somewhat void of color. That’s ok. No judgement here. But, if you want to show your support for heart health by wearing RED, you may need to buy something. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered… (btw, it’s Hallie writing this week). I scoured the Macy’s website and picked out some fabulous red pieces if you’re on the hunt for something RED, everything is under $250 and most are under $100  – so it’s as easy as 1, 2, click and support.
