Tonight is the College Football Championship Game and whether you are a Go Dawg or a Roll Tide Roll fan it is all about the Red. So imagine my surprise when the weekend Wall Street Journal had an entire page devoted to Red. It is fate!

Y'all know I love a red lipstick but I honestly don't wear much red (even when I'm going to a football game) but the WSJ has opened my eyes to maybe more red. 

I love this Black Halo Jackie O Belted Dress. I think a red dress is a great way to start a collection of red. Like a blue, so many shades of red are out there; you can go bold with a bright red or subtle like a crimson. Black Halo makes such classic dresses but can be jazzed up by switching up the belt with some bling like this one from Kate Spade. and a silver sandal. Do you want to wear it to work, simply add a black blazer like this one from Veronica Beard. A splurge but something you will wear for years to come.

So what about a pant. These pants from Ann Taylor Loft are on major sale. Again you can wear your black blazer for a more formal look or blouse in a fun color to mix and match if you are heading out for a night out.I love this silver Body Suir by Ronny Kobo Nofar but do you want to go a little more subtle then try this one shoulder blouse from Theory.

Not ready to go full out red, I hear you. Then try this beautiful sandal in Rudy Red from Rachel Zoe. Can wear it to work with a simple black dress or heading out then pair with blue jeans and a tailored blazer. Of course there is always a red lipstick...baby steps
