Seeing Red!

Seeing Red!
January 12, 2015 Barbara Schwartz

Red is a bold, warm color that is associated with our most intense emotions – love and anger – and with objects of power and desire – such as fast cars and roses. With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away and the news that a shade of red called Marsala is the Color of the Year for 2015, red has been on my mind. While this color has often been popular in women`s fashion, finding the right shade to flatter your skin tone can be difficult. Vintage costume jewelry offers the opportunity to accessorize with red, even if it isn’t a color you normally wear.
