Go Long...Long....Long....

I LOVE the long necklace trend that has been going on for about a year and still going strong. Cross your fingers that it keeps going....going...and going.....(just like the energizer bunny), because I am LOVING IT!

Here is why I love the long necklace trend. First, ANYONE can wear in accessory. It does not matter what shape or size you are, everyone can wear a necklace! Second, because it is a simple item that can dress up an outfit.

There are so many styles, colors, and lengths that are available right now in long necklaces. Gold, silver, whatever you prefer is out there! Another fave thing of mine with the long necklace trend? LAYERING! I love that you can throw one long necklace on or six of them and it can give you a completely different look. Mix them up too! They don't have to be all matchy-matchy!

So, if you are looking for a quick fix for a tank top, sweater, tshirt or dress...throw on a long necklace! In fact, throw on two or three necklaces! I guarantee the look will be fun and instantly take your outfit to a new level!

So, don't delay...get your long necklaces today!

Before February Comes To An End...

If you haven't been sporting a lot of RED during the month of February, you should be! If not to celebrate the month with the most romantic day of the year, Valentine's Day, than for celebrating your HEART!

In addition to that day, February is dedicated to a host of events that promote awareness against heart disease/stroke. You will find local campaigns and national campaigns all focused on promoting heart healthy lifestyles.

National Wear Red Day - TODAY - Fri, Feb. 5th!

As you're picking out what to wear this morning, only look at the items that are RED. Red! Red! Red! By wearing red today, you will support the American Heart Association with their Go Red For Women campaign.

I'm not going to get into all the specific statistics. It is as simple as this...heart disease is known as "the silent killer". It is amazing how many women die of heart disease every day, every minute, and are totally unaware that they even have a problem. Most women think cancer is the leading killer in women....WRONG! It is heart disease!

So, this is the day, as well as everyday, to show your support! WEAR RED! Tell all the women in your life to support the cause and join the movement of GO RED FOR WOMEN! It could help save another woman's life!

Will you be wearing red today? I will be....

Weekly Style Secret: SMILE

I was able to watch some of the Miss America pageant over the weekend. Personally, I LOVE watching pageants for the clothes, especially the evening wear segment.

I was watching Miss Hawaii dance during the talent portion and it mentioned that her favorite accessory is a SMILE. My first reaction was - WHAT?! What a cheesey and "typical" pageant answer.

But, then, I got to thinking. A smile IS an important accessory. Her answer is SO TRUE! If you don't have a smile on your face, you don't have anything. A smile is the best accessory that you can have to finish an outfit.

There are days where you will forget your earrings, the necklace you were planning to wear, or even your belt....but, you will never walk out the door without a smile, if you choose to use it!

SMILE! It's the best accessory anyone can have.....
