City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

l If a typical Friday night for you includes Sex and the City reruns, Chinese take-out and a bottle of two-buck Chuck, toss that habit for just one night in support of women’s heart disease. Next Friday, February 5th, 2010, is National Wear Red Day. Which means you’ll have to plan a ladies night, pick out a fantastic red dress and spend the evening on the town celebrating your health and sharing your cause.

This national symbol for women and heart disease awareness, was created by The Heart Truth in 2002 to deliver a much needed wakeup call to American women. Grab a glass of red wine (it’s red and it’s good for your heart!), pamper yourself with a mani and pedi in red, we like essie’s new bright red shade lollipop, or play up your pout, we suggest Shu Uemura’s RD 165, which has hints of blue that make it perfect shade of red for every skin tone.

If you’re still not ready to give up on the egg rolls or the never ending question of whether Carrie should get back together with Big, maybe this dress will be the answer. This little red dress by Jill Stuart (Jill Stuart Short Bengaline Strapless Dress, $198, available at http://www.Bloomingdales.com) will compliment the tone in your arms, thanks to your dedication to your New Year’s resolution and the zipper down the back only adds to the sexiness of the deep red color. Pair with black tights and a serious black pump and you’ll turn a few heads, in honor of the campaign of course….
