What I'm Packing for The Red Dress Collection Fashion Show

Tomorrow I'll be heading to the city to cover The Red Dress CollectionSM Fashion Show as a Diet Coke® digital ambassador for The Heart Truth® campaign. But tonight I'm frantically packing, trying to fit everything I'll need for fashion week into a manageable suitcase.

For tomorrow night's event, I'll be wearing a little black dress, plus a Kate Spade necklace and clutch, all borrowed from (sadly, everything has to go back when I'm done wearing it but I think it'll be worth it! Gotta werk it, plus I used up some credits so it was very budget friendly). I'll also be bringing along my new Lela Rose for Payless bow pumps which I snagged today for just $5 during a BOGO sale. Serious score.

I'm getting super excited for tomorrow's star-studded event, and I hope you'll follow me on Twitter and Instagram for behind-the-scenes coverage. Hair, makeup, nails, gowns, you name it, I'll be there to bring you the scoop!

And don't forget to use hashtag #ShowYourHeart with a photo to donate $1 to women's heart health programs throughout the month of February. It's a simple (free!) way you can get involved and help support women's heart health programs.
