Make a Real Statement With Red on February 1st
On February 1st, everyone at Found4less.com, home of the great New York bargains, would like to encourage you to wear red. We encourage this not because red is a vibrant and powerful color that looks good on almost anyone, but for an entirely different reason. It’s for your health, and the health of women everywhere. Heart disease is preventable, especially if we can raise awareness. But right now it is the number 1 killer of women as well as men.
When you choose something red on Friday, February 1st, you’re making a silent statement not only to the world (and anyone who might see you) but also yourself – that you’re willing to take this seriously.
You might think it’s scary to know what could be wrong with you, but it’s scarier not to know and have anything become worse. In the comfort of your own home, take the test to check your heart.
Found4less loves Macys, and Macys just happens to be a longtime national sponsor of goredforwomen.org. As such, they’ve put out a very generous offer of giving you an all-day savings pass if you come into the store on February 1st, wearing red. If you accidentally forget your red, you can buy a Go Red for Women red dress pin for $2 which will be donated to the American Heart Association (and you will then benefit from the sale).
Because a red dress is the symbol for this organization, I thought it only right to showcase some gorgeous red dresses. These are all from Macys. When you go on Friday, you can buy a dress for Valentine’s day, how perfecting is that?
My first choice is the unusually structured Democracy Matte Jersey Ruched Bubble Dress for $134.00 (#1) A bubble hem is hot, but some women feel odd wearing them – I feel ya, sister’s! This is a good solution because while it gives you a bubble skirt, it has a banded hemline.
The Suzi Chin Ruched Cap-Sleeve Dress ($158.00) is devastatingly romantic (#2). It comes in a variation of red: bordeaux. It’s traditional and on the conservation side, with silk lining and a hem that hits at the knee. The sleeves are capped, which remind me of something Juliet would wear to meet Romeo.
One thing I’ve learned about dressing well is that you never want to give everything away at once. So if you really want to wear a body-conscious dress, you should be mysterious about another part of your body. How about your arms? This A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz Tiered-Sleeve Trapeze Dress (Sale – $79.99) does the perfect balancing act with its fitted silk body, and large sheer and banded balloon sleeves (#3). It looks modern, and I think the best hair would be sleek hair that’s parted down the middle, or a tight low chignon to the side. You could wear a long elegant necklace, but I’d skip that and wear a couple bold cocktail rings.
Do you think I’d forget about the sweet and innocent first-date flirty dress? Never. I’ve found the perfect choice in the NEW! ECI Dot-Printed Stretch Silk V-Neck Dress with Tie at Waist (#4) for $158.00. The dress is an empire waisted, red silk number with variated sizes of white polka dots and a ruffled hem. Minnie Mouse might have slightly inspired it, but it looks far from cartoonish. It looks very sweet with the lace detail on the top v-neckline. I’d wear it with a pair of peep toe red pumps, two coats of mascara, and red lipstick.
