Inspi(RED)

This week's outfit was inspired by World AIDS Day, which was yesterday. However, AIDS is a topic we should keep in mind all 12 months of the year. (RED) is an organization "Designed to Help Eliminate AIDS" that works year-round in the fight against this terrible disease.

Fittingly, this week's Friday's Fancies focuses on the color red and serves as a reminder - of those lost and those who may be touched by AIDS. Here's hoping we can find a cure in our lifetime!


Inspi(RED)



Above is an outfit that I would wear to a charity gala. If only, right? Don't we all wish we had amazing outfits to wear to important benefits - along with lots of money to donate to countless organizations? That's OK, even the littlest bit helps. Remember to donate to your favorite charity - whether it be to (RED), an organization that protects the rain forests, or your local animal shelter (which I do). In most cases, donations are tax refundable so you can make a difference and get a little break from Uncle Sam at the same time. Be sure to make those contributions before the end of the year!

To see more red outfits, head over to Long Distance Loving. And for more fashion, link up with Blonde Episodes for Fashion Fridays.
