I Will Rock My Red Pumps!

Hey to my fellow Divas and if I happen to have any fellas lurking...
What's up Divos?!

I am bright eyed and bushy tailed as I type this post because we have a beautiful day on tap here in the DMV!  Spring is right around the corner y'all!  Daylight savings time begin in a little over two weeks.  I don't mind losing an hour of precious sleep if it means that we gain an extra hour of daylight.  For us bloggers that hour is precious to us for photo shoot optimization.

Do you see the banner over there?    =================>

The Red Pump Project is a great organization and movement that is bringing awareness of the impact HIV/AIDS is having on women and girls.  While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.  Did you know every 35 minutes a woman is tested positive for HIV in the U.S.?   To me that is an alarming number for my community, so I am doing the least I can do to help.  I will have a dedicated post on March 9th and rock my red pumps on March 10th but before those dates I will mention it in every post to get you all involved. 
The goal for the organization this year is getting 2500 blogs involved and painting the blogosphere REDWill you join me? Here are a few ways to join in. 

There is more information on their website to be sure to go over there. 
I'm ready to Rock My Red Pumps!

On to my preppy outfit!

The blazer is part of a suit that I bought yearrrrrrrs ago.  I believe it was my first adult suit I bought.  Don't even rembmer the name of the store.  I want to say an old store called Mandee.

Blazer:  Part of an old skirt suit   Sweater: Izod, thrifted   Button up:  K&G  Jeans:  Calvin Klein from the men's section
Shoes:  Chinese Laundry, Moving On  Clutch: Charming Charlie
