The Lady In Red....
Have you ever heard that ballad 'The Lady In Red' by Chris De Burgh? You must have had, it's been around for a while. It's one of my favourite ballads, a perfect joining of beautiful music and meaningful lyrics. For some reason this song reminds me of another (probably even more famous ballad) and that would be 'Wonderful Tonight' by Eric Clapton. Actually, I think I know the reason and it has to do with how I interpret both of these songs. According to my personal interpretation, both of these ballads talk about a man who suddenly sees his lady in a new light and realizes just how gorgeous and wonderful she is. Now, what is more romantic than that?
That line 'the lady in red is dancing with me' caused me to form a very vivid visual image that has stuck in my mind ever since. I don't know about you, but I could always imagine mesmerized Eric dancing with Pattie Boyd (the women who inspired him to write the song) even if in Eric's song there is no mention of a red dress. I'm not exactly sure what Chris looks like ( I only know him for his song) so I never imagined him, but I know he wrote this one for his wife, so she must have had worn a red dress at least once. Anyhow, that could explain why I love red dresses so much. I've said many times that I associate red colour with love and I have a special place in my heart for red dresses. Perhaps I still associate red dresses with these songs. One thing that 'The Lady In Red' made me sure of is that wearing a red dress can make us feel empowered. There is a lesson to be learned from this song.
Today I decided to made a little selection. Style We is a place where you can look for these lovely things I'm sharing with you. I have already written about this site on my blog. What is unique about it is that they're supporting young designers hence their 'designers at fingertips' motto. I've chosen a few dresses, all very pretty in their own way, but this first one (the one with the kitty print) really blew me away. It's so fashion forward, isn't it? It is really remarkable how putting on a perfect dress can make us feel instantly dressed up and confident. Plus, dresses always seemed like taking the easy way for me, you slip them on and you're done. Plus, there is always that romantic aspect to them. Even if you're not the kind of women to go in for romance (not that I ever met that isn't), it is always a good idea to have at least one dress that makes us feel really special in our closet. You never know, the perfect dress might be just a click away!
