The color Red.  I love it.  Can't get enough.

Not sure when precisely I became so attracted to red things.  In college and post-college, I tended to shy away from wearing bright-colored (ie: red) clothing items.  Don't know exactly why -- perhaps it was the attraction of attention that I wanted to avoid.  I also thought red (among other colors like orange and yellow) simply didn't suit me.  

Then I began coloring my hair red.  (When was that anyway...?)

Somewhat more recently, I began to acquire red items -- sweaters, shirts, blouses, earmuffs, jackets, garnet jewelry.  And everytime I think about red, I can't help thinking about the 1st Chakra, which is represented by a 4-petaled lotus, and (you guessed) the color red.  As I see it, in a sea of black and tan, drab greys and navys, red stands out as unabashed, fierce and unapologetic.   And by that, I mean my spanky new down jacket.  =)   It doesn't blend in, rather radiates a supreme kind of self-confidence that can sometimes occur as arrogance

Really makes you realize just how many people seem to look much like everyone else with respect to their fashion choices.
