The Power of Red

Hello my lovely friends! I love to see how different colors affect my mood. Red is the most powerful color that creates the strongest set of emotions. For me, wearing red gives me whole new level of confidence. You probably already know a little but about color psychology and what red can do for you. Red is a very dynamic color with the strongest color personality. It exudes strength and commands attention whenever you wear it. Because finding a red that works for you is not an easy task, adding pops of red to your outfits can still portray the same power and confidence.




Because I am not always in the mood to jump right into the center of attention and wear red, I love to add it in pops of my outfits. I still feel powerfully charged when I wear it, but in a subtle and not overpowering way.



These adorable Ballet Barre Red Suede Lace-Up Flats are only $28. Not only are they trendy, but they add the color makes a statement. They also have them in Cognac, which I think is totally fall appropriate. I’d recommend getting a half-size up if you’re looking into getting them (but hurry, there aren’t many sizes left!).


For fun, add it to your lips! I’m wearing Revlon True Red.



And of course, what pops of red wouldn’t be complete with black and gold accessories and a statement bag to finish off the look! These Rocksbox gems from my latest set include this beautiful Gorjana Mave Lariat necklace, which totally has me swooning over the delicate appearance.

Finally, I am so thrilled to have found the perfect mixed moto jacket from Guess! It has both faux leather pieces and knit sleeves, which is the perfect combination when you don’t want to go all out in faux letter.  I got this Guess jacket at Macys, but Lord & Taylor has it for $65 right now. I linked both so you can find your size and get the best deal!
