Come On Baby Light My Fire...

Red is unquestionably my favourite colour since ever. It's the colour of love, of passion. I don't wear it evrysingle week but there it abounds quite largely in my closet. It's a powerful colour, the perfect one to wear on those days we're feeling down, since it has the vitality and conveys the necessary backbone to recover one's spirit and to assure assertivenes. Red is not for low profile people; for it is not a discreet colour, one that goes unnnoticed, but if mixed with other shades such as camel, black or even with a classic white shirt or used just in small details, it can become less striking; even so, it'll never be indifferent. it's a sensual, magnetic, energetic colour, it is related to fire and therefore it's intense, vibrant and luminous. It's the colour of seduction, of the bold, of the daring and very suitable to hit the target of someone's heart, or better saying, that particular special heart, who knows tomorrow, on Saint Valentine's Day?! ;) 

O vermelho é, indubitavelmente, a minha cor preferida desde sempre. Não o uso todas as semana, mas existe com alguma predominância no meu guarda-roupa. É uma cor poderosa, ideal para usar num dia em que nos sentimos mais em baixo, pois tem a vitalidade e transmite a força anímica necessárias para levantar a moral e assegurara assertividade. O vermelho não é para pessoas low profile, pois não é uma cor discreta, que passe despercebida ao olhar dos outros, mas se conjugada com camel, preto ou um camiseiro clássico branco ou apenas usado em acessórios pode ser menos marcante; ainda assim, nunca será indiferente! É uma cor sensual, magnética, enérgica, tem a ver com o fogo e, por isso, quente e luminosa. É a cor da conquista, dois aventureiros, dos destemidos, dos ousados e muito apropriada  para atingir corações, ou melhor, aquele coração, quiçá amanhã, no dia dos namorados?! ;)


  1. A minha cor favorita desde que me conheço e que na minha opinião demonstra segurança, força e o novo modernismo no sexo feminino! Fugindo ao frágil cor-de-rosa :)

  2. Também ADORO vermelho. Sempre que me sinto down, menos confiante ou sem luz, tauas! - vermelho. Nas unhas, nos sapatos ou no top. Recentemente, até em calças. Amo vermelho. :*

  3. I love this color. It's one of my favorite.
    Love your selection of photos.

  4. Gosto, mas quase nunca uso, excepto nas unhas ;)

  5. Bold, daring, sexy - I'm often a little timid to go all out with red, but these images have inspired me to be a little more brave and try a nice pop of bright red :)
    Happy Valentines to you!

  6. ADOREI as fotos escolhidas, muito boas para representar o vermelho que para mim tem sempre a conotação de 'sensual' :) beijinho*

  7. O vermelho leva-me a pensar em algo sensual, sexy, poder!!
    Acho que é uma boa cor mesmo!

  8. Thanks for stopping by Aida and for your kind words. You're so sweet. I really love your blog too, I really mean it. You have depicted the color red in every way possible, your vision is creative. Love. I'm sure we'll get along.. we have similar taste. :)

  9. It was when THAT photo of Rosie Huntington - Whiteley was published in Vogue that I fell in love with her.

    As a blonde I find it hard to wear red lips but this has inspired me to try again.

    Regards, Holly.
