They say diamonds are a girls best friend but #handbags aren’t to far behind. Let’s just say #handbags are a must-have which goes far beyond a best friend. When I’m feeling a little blue and I’m in need of a pick me up a new handbag can change my mood in an instant. Mainly it’s because of the exciting feeling you get when you look down at it in your hands. Your mind starts telling you this is “YOUR” hot handbag.
It also let’s people know a lot about WHO you are as a woman. You have the woman who keeps up with the hottest handbag fashion trends. She’ll probably have a large variety of bags. The woman who keeps a good designer name brand on her arm. Which is not a bad thing at all if it’s in your budget, but if it’s not, you can still be fab without one. Last but not least you have the more simple woman who is laid back in her handbag picking. She’ll probably be the one who doesn’t change her bag much. No matter where a woman may fall in this handbag lineup it’s always important for a woman to have a fabulous handbag.
So let’s talk 2014 Handbag Fashion Trend and how you can get the look for less. Keep in mind the following handbags are in no way knock off’s. It’s simply the designer look for a cheaper price. Whenever there’s a new trend all of the designer do their version of that trend. You don’t have to buy the cheapest but you don’t have to buy the most expensive either. You just have to #ShopSmart
1st: Bohemian Chic Fringe ~ Fringe is huge right now. You can wear it in any color and match it with anything. As long as it has a flow. We found a Stella McCartney that sells for $1,765.00 we have the look on #ItsReds for $54.00 #ShopSmart

Keeping warm is our first job in the colder winter months. So since we have to do it, let’s do it in style.
When I was a little girl I would dream of the day I had a closet full of #coats. Being one of five we all received a new #coat annually, but like most kids I was constantly growing so fast that by the time I got the new one the old one was too small. For some reason I’ve always disliked wearing the same thing everyday.I’m so not a uniform girl, I have no clue why However in my adult life my winter wardrobe is based around what #coat I feel like wearing today.
You don’t have to have a closet full of #coats but variety is always a good thing. So in case you’re in the market for a new one, let’s talk #coats. The BIG thing for 2013 is Leopard print. Put your black #coat down because it’s your go to neutral. Any girl looks great in it and it can be worn with just about anything. Even plaid, just be daring.
For my petite woman, when in doubt always go for a peacoat. It’s timeless, effortless and always looks great. It gives a petite woman the length and shape she needs. However Peacoat’s are not the right coat for a full figured woman. It can make her look boxy and that she is NOT. My full figured ladies look great in #coats that clinch the waist. It shapes her, smoothes her out and shows off the curves in all the right ways.
Last but not least let’s focus on our Tall girls (a subject that is no doubt dear to my heart) If you’re like me you’ve stayed away from long length #coats, but we shouldn’t because we look great in them. As long as they’re clinched at the waist or tight at the top and flare at the bottom. Really tall woman can wear just about any #coat we’ve talked about thus far. It’s one of the great things about being so tall.
Well that’s 2013 #coats in a nutshell. Now go out and celebrate the cold in style. If you have a fabulous #coat pic we want to see it. Post it below in our comment section.

Most of us have our #Favorite piece or look that we know we wear way too often. Usually it fits us great, goes with almost everything in our closet and needs little to NO care. All of your friends and family are tired of seeing you in it and the people who have complimented you on it in the past, now think it’s apart of your skin LOL. No, for real. So “what to do” you ask? I have the perfect plan my pretty.
Outfit repeats seem to show up when we have no clue what to wear. (Boy, If I had a dollar for every time I’ve said that) It seems to lead us down the road to throwing on our #Favorite look, our comfort zone of #fashion. This is not a bad thing if you do it the right way. The secret to rocking a repeat is to #Revamp #It. In the Wonderful World of Fashion you never have to wear something exactly the same way twice. There’s just no reason for it.
You can turn a dress into an amazing shirt by simply putting a pair of pants or tights under it. Or put a blazer over a dress and wear it with your favorite pair of thigh high boots. This will give it a more autumn feel. You can also try pairing your #Favorite shirt or dress with a eye catching hat. People will be so focused on the hat that they’ll never notice the #Revamp. Just make sure it matches perfectly.
Be bold, be brave and #Revamp your #Favorite piece into a 2013 holiday party. Shh it’ll be our little secret.
Here’s a few Celebrity #Revamps done right.

STYLE TIPS FROM RED’S BOUTIQUE: The cold is here but have no fear. Don’t pull out your heavy winter coat just yet. Fall is perfect for layering your favorite pieces. The great thing about layering is that you can adjust the amount of layers you need depending on the temperature. So if you leave the house in three to four layers and get to work and it’s warm “adjust your layers”. Or maybe it’s warmer outside during the day but in the evening when the sun goes down you need to “adjust your layers”.
When figuring out an outfit perfect for layering you need to think outside the box. The best way to successfully layer is to start with a long sleeve or short sleeve shirt that can act as a neutral. Don’t be afraid to play with color here, try reds, pinks, grays, or this year any shade of BLUE.
Your second layer should be a standout piece, maybe something with multiple colors. I like flannels for a casual 2nd layer and collared dress shirts for a more dressed up look. Whatever you do, definitely make sure that each piece can stand alone as a great shirt by itself in case you need to “adjust your layers”.
The third layer is where you add a blazer, or a sweater. Something you would think of as your coat (but it doesn’t have to actually be a coat) Of course like any great fashionista make sure all your colors in all your layers are blending and flowing with each other.
For an optional fourth and final piece you could always add an accessory like a hat or maybe a scarf to add a little warmth. You know your body and how it responds to the cold. I hate for wind to hit my neck so for me a scarf is an absolute must have in all of my fall and winter looks.
Just remember to have fun mixing and matching your layers and also have fun adjusting them. Play with your colors and patterns.You don’t have to keep them in the order you leave the house in either, it’s your layering world. If you’re a parent the same rules apply for your children’s fall looks. Now you can show the how to have some layering fun.
Happy layering! #ItsRedsStyling

At Red’s we LOVE the return of fall. It brings back wonderful chic pieces like the “Black turtleneck”. It compliments just about any shape or size, by making you look slim and trim in all the right places. You can dress it up with black leather pants and a glamorous blazer, or with a pair of jeans for that simple everyday look. You can also wear it with a printed skirt to bring a calm to a patterned storm.
Take a look at some fabulous ways to wear our friend the “Black Turtleneck” and decide how you’re going to bring it to life in your wardrobe. Remember when you look good you feel good. So bring a touch of glamour to your everyday life.

I hear so many people make the mistake of saying they don’t care what they look like. They make themselves, or try to make themselves believe that what they choose to wear won’t change how they feel. I wish I could say I believe them, but I don’t. In fact I know the exact opposite to be true.
I can remember my friends making fun of me when I was younger because I put so much emphasis on my wardrobe. I would say things like “I can’t go there I don’t look the part”. I’ve always felt that just as there is a time and place for everything, there is also a look for every occasion and place.
I had one friend in particular who never cared about her look. She always tried to fool herself into believing it didn’t make a difference and that people who took time to “look good” were self -centered and insecure. One day I challenged her to put on her “Sunday’s best” so to speak. When she did, it changed her whole day. Everyone stopped to take a second look her way. She got attention she didn’t know she would enjoy getting. Not only did people notice her but she felt so much better about herself. She enjoyed walking past a mirror and noticing herself. She enjoyed looking down and loving something she had on.
This friend went on to take time to look good every day. Only because she noticed that on days she went back to her old ways of just wearing anything, she didn’t feel as good. Everything didn’t go as smooth. This friend learned the lesson that looking good meant feeling great. Not because she was self -centered or insecure but because it gave her confidence. It added a certain level of internal happiness that can make the small stuff that occurs throughout the day remain small.
I’m in no way saying that a wardrobe is magical and can change the hand of tragedy. However what I am saying is if you take the time to make yourself look your best you will feel good about who you are. The emotion and energy that comes from knowing you look great will build your confidence. A strong state of self-confidence lets the world know how to treat you. So go out and look good so you can feel great. In return the world will treat you the way you deserve to be treated.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. Whether you’ve been directly affected or not, we’re all trying to figure out how we begin to heal? Unfortunately there will be a lot of funeral services and memorials held in the days ahead in Newtown CT. We can’t allow this tragedy to go by like so many others have with no defining action taking place. As a people what can we do to have the voices of these angels heard?
We face two separate challenges to make change on. One being our gun laws and the other addresses the so-called mental health issue.
The 2nd Amendment. Not a terrible idea in 1791, but do we really need to have the right to bear arms in today’s society? This is not a political issue it’s a humanity issue. What do you think? Do you feel safer knowing that you have an automatic weapon in your house, or do you feel worried that so does the “threat” that you feel you need to protect yourself from in the first place? In my opinion, something must be done about the Gun Laws in this country. It is just simply not ok for the average everyday person to carry an automatic weapon that can cause the damage that took place in CT.
We all know someone that may appear to have social issues. Whether its anger problems, being withdrawn or just the neighborhood trouble maker, you are thinking about that person right now aren’t you? Now you are wondering if they have the potential to do something as heinous as what took place in CT. Ok good, now that you have that person in mind, who can you call? Who do we report a “maybe” to? How do we get these people help, who are we to say they need help in the first place? Can we blame some of this on video games? I’ve always thought they were way too violent. Again, we need good ideas on these issues, this is not simple stuff, but that’s what the government is there for right? We need political leadership. Something must be done. What are your thoughts……
