February is Go Red for Women month. Heart disease is the leading killer of women, with one woman dying from heart disease every minute. It is responsible for more deaths than all forms of Cancer, combined, yet women are more concerned about cancer.
To help bring awareness to the worthwhile cause, February 7th is National Wear Red for Women Day. Here are some great red statement pieces.

A fab handbag
Longchamp is known for their amazing bags that are real workhorses. The brand has a reputation for quality craftsmanship. The Le Pilage bag is perfect for your everyday bag, as it’s not too large, yet big enough to carry everything you need. It’s also fabulous for travel, as it folds up nice and neat, and can easily fit into your tote or suitcase. The Longchamps Le Pilage bag is available in 4 colors, but that red is the perfect pop of color for your wardrobe.
The Perfect Red Dress
Everyone needs a dressy dress, and everyone needs a red dress. Accomplish both of those things with this amazing Alfred Sung dress. The bateau neckline and cocktail length makes for a figure flattering dress on most body types. As if that wasn’t enough, the fit and flare dress has pockets, and is available in up to a size 18, too. All three shades are gorgeous, but this red dress is a show stopper.
A bold red lip
A red lip is always in style. Creamy, glossy, matte – it all works! Personally, I love the Shiseido Vision Airy Gel Lipstick. Try Volcanic (pictured) for an orangey red or Ginza Red for that deep true red color. You can go very elegant, very vamp, or very classic. Remember to choose a shade that matches your skin tone, though.
Bold jewelry, like a statement necklace or a cuff bracelet are always a total outfit maker, and a discussion starter. Why not add to that with this amazing red cocktail ring. The center square cut simulated ruby is sure to be a show stopper. The pave crystals just add to the elegance. No one will ever believe that this ring was just $40.
An Amazing Red Shoe
You didn’t think we’d leave shoes out, did you? They’re one of our favorite ways to add a pop of color or interest to your outfit. These burgundy suede skimmers are a perfect addition to your closet. They look great with jeans or slacks, and skirts or dresses. The scalloped edge gives them a little extra style. People will think you put effort in, when in reality wearing ballet flats are as easy as tossing on flip flops. Plus, they’re super affordable.
