Here’s a funny little post for you all. It seems to me the holiday season is sweeter this year…as I’ve finally overcome my aversion to the color red. And now, I can’t get enough of it!
It’s true that in my younger years I gobbled up all sorts of foolish magazine advice…one of which was that men would be immediately attracted to a woman if she was wearing red. And I guess at the time I thought that was pathetic, so I somewhat subconsciously started to steer clear of the color. It had been years…maybe since a high school dance…that I donned red. Until, that is, I started seeing it everywhere, and I couldn’t stop thinking about the color! Since then I’ve bravely purchased a red dress, sweater, and fuzzy beret…and haven’t looked back.
Red actually looks quite nice on me. I like how it plays off my pale skin and brown hair…even my brown glasses! Wearing red has definitely added an extra layer of coziness to my winter months. Now it seems silly to buy into the thought that I’ll be some sort of man magnet! Other colors I’ve been keen on lately are emerald green, caramel, and deep, deep brown.
Do you have any colors you avoid (even if for trivial reasons)? What’s your favorite color to wear?
