Red: Not just for V-day

(Actress and the future Mrs. Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, in Louboutin Red Pumps)

Red happens to be my favorite color in the entire world. So much so that my apartment is pretty much a single pallet of red/black/white....

I think my love of red grew from my mother, who bought a lot of red for me growing up (despite old folks saying red was mature...and that darker girls didn't look good in red..what a myth!). I'm also an ruling planet is Mars...Mars is associated with the color red....
So needless to say the color red runs deep with much so that:

  • My fav 2 shades of lipstick that are my: Chanel Rouge in Allure and NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Deep Red
  • I buy a new read dress every year on my birthday, whether I wear it or not.
  • All of my electronic devices have red cases (Kindle, Ipod, Iphone, Macbook, etc)
  • Yes I like the song "Lady in Red"....
  • I color my hair some shade of red ( it's more chestnut blond..but's red to me!)
  • I'm even considering getting re-married (God willing..we need the groom lol )in a red dress instead of a traditional color like beige or ivory for a 2nd wedding.
  • My sorority colors are blue and white..but still...RED is my fav color so I get mistaken for a Delta a lot. *shrug*
  • Red reminds me of my Auntie Madonna, also an Aries, whose favorite color was also red.
  • I also buy red lingerie every year for my birthday
  • I'm looking at red cars despite the insurance aspect....(LOL)
  • One of my fav bloggers, Luvvie, has a shoe blog and tumblr I love dedicated to  shoes but especially RED SHOES.

Moreover as it relates to this blog, I own about 12 pairs of red shoes..but hey..who's counting! I love red. It's a simple, primary color that will add pop to your boring suit, LBD, LWD, or even be classy enough to go from 9 to 5...I simply adore red. This season I've been pairing red with Leopard or Zebra animal prints as well as other "neutral" colors such as Taupe and Brown....
