Are You RED-y for Mission Alfresco

When I think of all red for a Rescue Mission event I think of love for my family, friends and my community. Mission Alfresco is a wonderful event the Rescue Mission has planned and everyone’s excitement is bursting at the seams. For those who are unfamiliar, you and your family or friends will meet at a location for dinner and fun with others in the community while wearing red. Not only do you have to wear red but all of the items you bring have to be red as well. This is a time to enjoy family, friends, food and fun while supporting a great cause – ending hunger and homelessness in our community

I had the pleasure to speak with some of the awesome ladies that are helping coordinate this event. I can tell you that this is an occasion you don’t want to miss. This year will also focus on fabulous fashions finds and the outfits you put together. There is no specific style stated, so you can be as creative as you would like. This cause is all about having fun and enjoying the night so keep that in mind. You want to wear things that you are most comfortable in while still incorporating your style.

To further support the Rescue Mission, They are encouraging everyone to create a look from your local Rescue Mission Thrifty Shopper Store. Not only will you further support the cause, you will also save money. I love exploring the local thrift store. You will always find great items and clothing you wouldn’t expect to see in a thrift store. With having unlimited options to create your look the biggest tip I can give you is to have fun.

There are a few things you can incorporate into your clothing items to make it more engaging. Prints like floral, polka-dot and strips will always give your outfit a little boost. But don’t forget about your accessories and shoes. These are items that you will have more leeway with and they don’t have to necessarily be red. Although red is the theme it can be hard to find shoes and jewelry that is completely red so this gives you the opportunity to add subtle colorful touches.

As you put your look together think about the love you will share with your community. At first glance wearing one color may not be your ideal outfit choice, but wearing one color to show your support of others is what matters. It will be fun to see what everyone puts together. Whether you are coming with your spouse or your entire family this is the time to get inspired.
