We love all things red this season, from lipstick to mobile phone covers. Celebrate the season with the colour of love, passion and happy times.

LRD (Little Red Dress)

This versatile dress can take you from the office to an evening party with just a few accessories. Pair it with a leopard-print belt (Ishara owner Amrit Baidwan paired this dress with a Brave Helki Reversible Leopard Belt here), a nice black, stacked almond-toe pump like these, and black print tights. 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent Long-Sleeved Pleated Dress, $275 | shopishara.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

No Place Like Home

My best friend introduced me to these adorable slippers a few years back, and they are undeniably adorable – even if you don't like rodents. Marc by Marc Jacobs Sleeping Mouse Felt Slippers, $195 | MarcJacobs.com

 

 

 

 

Vino

Red is best. It's good for your heart, it stains your lips a pretty burgundy, and extra can be mixed with fruits and spices for holiday mulled wine. A few of our favourites: Deep and delicious is the J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon, $21.99 at BC Liquor Storesand LCBO. Easy sipping and value with Copper Moon Shiraz, $8.95 at BC Liquor Stores. Happy cheese eating with Red Rooster Cabernet Merlot, $18.99 at BC Liquor Stores. 

 

 

 

 

 

Squeaky Clean

Philosophy comes out with lovely holiday smelling skin care products every year, and while the Gingerbread line is a bit strong for our tastes, the Holly Berry Bubbly or Sparkling Cranberry is perfect with a glass of red vino in the tub. You deserve it.  Philosophy Holly Berry Bubbly Bubble Bath, $16 at Sephora / $21 at Beauty Mark | Philosophy Sparkling Cranberry Gift Set with Lip Gloss, $23 at The Bay

 

 

 

 

 

Red for a Cause
