My World: Wear Red Day

Red Heart Dresses




National wear red day was Feb 3, 2012. The American Heart Association wants to uncover the truth about heart disease. More women die of heart disease than the next three causes of death combined including all forms of cancer. The Red Heart Dresses were photographed when I walked to my Village to have breakfast.

I didn't know Feb. 3rd was such a special day. I love those dresses!

Garry Ladouceur said...

It is a great idea. The only fear I would have would be in those countries where red represents a certain perspective for example Thailand that has factions of red shirts and yellow shirts.

How I wish I knew. I would have worn red!

My husband was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in July. The dr. feels he may have this CHF because of a virus. This is all so strange to me watching his diet, salt and liquid intake. We are young too. It has all been quite a shock! he is doing better now that he has a pacemaker. It's amazing how your life can change in a blink of an eye.

Great Photos by the way. :)

Thoise red dress stakes are a fun way to remind women to check on their heart health and to know the signs of a heart attack!

I didn't know about the day but warning is great for us especially in winter. The design that is cut out a heart shape in red dress appeal well.
