If you have read some of my blogs, or follow me on social media you might know by now that my favorite color is red. All shades and tones of it. I have always been attracted to red. The new year is coming up, and in Hispanic traditions (maybe not all, comment if yours are different) if you want luck finding a boo thang in the coming year…you better start the year by wearing red calzones (undies). I haven’t done this tradition yet. (might be why I haven’t found one, so I’ll let you know if it works this year. Ha!)
“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.”
I have this beautiful red coat, and the weather in Houston is finally giving me a chance to wear it. This is a good way to make a fashion statement in a simple way. I wore an all black dress, black tights, and black over-the-knee boots with my red coat. I also threw in a red scarf, because it added a little more sophistication to the outfit (and bronchitis sucks). If red undies are supposed to help bring you love in the New Year…can you imagine what a red COAT will do?!!!
What better way to welcome the new year than with a bold color that has so much meaning. It is romantic yet, powerful.
Spice up your 2018 a little with a little bit of red. I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you the best this upcoming year 😘
