Red is a 'power' color. Ever notice how many female execs are red heads?
When I was younger I avoided it like the plague. Now I find it extremely attractive... I wonder what happened?
You fell in love with Margaret Thatcher, Cro.
Another observation......You will never see an artificially colored 'red' wearing a flowered dress.(Except on a runway and I'll bet the lines of the garment are strong!)
