February is the month that the Nation Goes Red in honor of Heart Disease awareness. The first Friday of every February has been designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke.
American Heart Month, a federally designated event, is an ideal time to remind Americans to focus on their hearts and encourage them to get their families, friends and communities involved. This year at our ministry we decided to designate February 9, 2020 as our Red Dress Sunday where we asked the ladies to wear a red dress and the men to wear something red. In honor of February being the American Heart ❤️ Month it was our goal to get everyone in the ministry and connected to the ministry thinking about cardiovascular health.
Over the past few years my love for collecting vintage/Southern Belle dresses has grown into a huge collection so when we decided to wear red for our “Red Dress Sunday” I knew exactly what I was going to wear and the perfect way to style the look. I remembered that I had ordered the cutest red sailor dress last year from Unique Vintage.
Hey! A girl can never go wrong with a cure Retro Red Sailor Collar Short Sleeve Swing Dress. This beautiful 1950’s swing dress was the perfect fit for the occasion. This dress makes me feel like a Southern Belle. When you put on this cute little sailor dress you simply feel marvelous! I decided to pair the look with a natural make-up look using Pixi Beauty Natural Beauty palette colors: Foiled Bronze and Chocolate Brown with a touch of Auburn Blaze from their Reflex Light Palette. I opted to wear my hair in a natural curly flat twist style along with a pair of red patent leather Jessica Simpson heels.
