This past Saturday I spent my Thanksgiving weekend celebrating the love between my long time friend and his now wife in their union as husband and wife! I have been looking for some time for the most perfect red dress and I have found it! Although I tend to blend in at special events I decided to represent how I felt in my fashion choice by wearing my favorite color. The color I associate with love the most is red.
Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags. (http://www.color-wheel-pro.com/color-meaning.html)
Although red is my favorite color I hardly ever wear it! But as I have gotten older I have made a resolve with myself to take more chances including fashion chances by wearing what I love. The look I was going for was an old Hollywood vintage and romantic style...
