I'm a neutral sort of person. Wear a lot of grey, black, beige. Last year, in an attempt to break out of my black habit, I bought a lot of navy. I mean, THAT was a huge breakthrough for me. But lately, I'm incredibly drawn to Red. I've been wearing it, and painted my nails this color. Red has hugely positive and powerful associations and according to color experts, represents vitality, confidence and beauty. All around the world, Red is used in dynamic ways. In China, red symbolizes good luck and fortune. In India, a red mark on the forehead is said to bring good luck. To the Hindu, red symbolizes joy, life, energy, and creativity. So, embrace red, in your wedding, wardrobe or home- it can only bring you good. Les Prairies de Paris L'Olympe Cotoni Dress from My Favorite store
