Travelling Red Dress - Get Inspired!

Jaimes Jaimes
Hey guys! I am a big fan of The Bloggess and last week she posted a pretty amazing blog about her struggle with mental illness, and coming out about her self-harm.

These are two causes I feel really strongly about, and actively support, and so reading about her journey really moved me.

But here is what I am really here to share with you guys, The Traveling Red Dress.

"I want, just once, to wear a bright red, strapless ball gown with no apologies. I want to be shocking, and vivid and wear a dress as intensely amazing as the person I so want to be. And the more I thought about it the more I realized how often we deny ourselves that red dress and all the other capricious, ridiculous, overindulgent and silly things that we desperately want but never let ourselves have because they are simply ‘not sensible’." -The Bloggess

This is an incredible movement, and thousands of people are joining in to donate red dresses, reveal their own "red dress" dreams, share stories about what fulfilling that dream meant, as well as coming together to foster love and support for people who really need a moment like this.

I know that I am certainly feeling inspired, and I'm going to reach out to see what I can do for this cause and something like it in my own community.

I hope that you all can find some part of this cause that speaks to you, whether it's admitting to yourself what your "red dress" dream might be, or going out and putting two or three beautiful moments, i.e. dresses, in a box to send to someone in need of them.
