The Red of August: My Way of Taking Red to a Higher Level

Goodbye July! Hello August!

Let me share with you an inspiring story that made my life better.

One Saturday morning, I woke up with a heavy heart. I felt depressed of the little things that I see around me. I’m bored with my home office design. I don’t like working for my write-ups. In short, everything is bleak in me.

I look deep inside my heart, in retrospect of what was wrong and how it all ended this way.

Obviously, I’m just bored.

Since fashion and writing are knotted parts of my life, I’ve decided to change everything.

I started with taking red to a higher level.

Here are the suggested ways to amp your look with chic red fashion pieces.

1. Collect red dresses, skirts and other red-hued clothing pieces

If you like using a theme in choosing your ensemble for the day, don’t forget to include a “Lady in Red” motif. It’s not just the song; it’s the feeling of wearing a regal shade. It’s the exciting blush that changes your mood from dreary to happy.

I have red skirts, dresses and a red hat. Recently, I designed a simple suede red dress. It’s a knee-length, red frock that is perfect for attending church meetings. For less than $8, I got a fabulous red dress to highlight positive thinking, graceful beauty and hope. I wore it on a Sunday with other girls in the branch.

2. Don’t hesitate to buy accessories in red hues

My love affair with edgy shoes didn’t stop me from collecting red footwear items. Last year, I bought a pair of maroon wedges from Primadonna. Until now, the edgy footwear is still useful. Indeed, it’s my major proof that I’m a certified fashion lover.

3. Change the color of your home fixtures with designs that have shades of red

Our former place in Imus City has a red door. It’s the only entrance with red hue in the block. And you’re right; we embraced inimitability at that time. Aside from that, it’s obviously the reason our dogs can determine where’s home because of the red door. Remember, houses in subdivisions are usually created alike. We just painted our door with color red to make a change. If you like to buy a red sofa, go for it. After all, you can easily blend it with other furniture in your home.

4. Fall in love with anything red

Fall in love with anything red. Why not? It’s a thrilling move for a bored lady. The jaded feeling of having the usual stuff can be erased in that way. Create crafts with red themes and collect items. I have collections of red earrings and bracelets.

There are different shades of red – deep, blazing and light – and these are gorgeous fashion colors to hang on. Of course, my favorite is blazing red. How about you?
If I’m going to buy a car, I’ll choose a recent model with blazing red color.  

Your life is precious. Make it meaningful by going with the flow but include spices along the way.
