For the Love of a Red Dress

Nothing better than being in a red dress surrounded by all things masculine!

With the hot summer coming soon, I am looking forward to the warm sexy days where I can just toss on a beautiful dress and my hand-made Grecian sandals, and out the door I go.  I have always loved the ease and feminine appeal of dresses, and red is one of my favorite hues.  There’s something about a woman in a red dress that is so powerful and alluring, don’t you think?

Take a look at the mini film below that is part of my new tu-anh Boutique YouTube video series. In it, I’ve styled model Alex Marie in a long, sexy cotton Greek Goddess dress, which is perfect for hot summer nights out, a Sunday brunch in Alexandria, or a sexy date at home with yourself on the couch with champagne and candlelight.  Or, if you are having a day where you don’t feel your best self, I suggest you put on something with the color red. Doing so boosts your confidence, your power, and your passionate side, and helps you awaken your inner feminine divine.  Doesn’t Alex Marie look like she is ready to take on the world in my video below?

How are you styling your wardrobe for the summer? Is there red in your closet? I always love the fashion inspiration my fans provide, as well as the inspiration from the places I travel to!

The red section is a staple at our sanctuary.

How Balanced is Your Root Chakra?

The heart knows.

The heart knows.

You may be hearing the word “chakra” more and more these days as people are more open to holistic ways of improving health and well being, but the concept of chakras goes back for centuries.  The root chakra, associated with the color red, is known as the first chakra or “Muladhara.”  According to multiple sources, Mula means “root” and Adhara means “support” or “base.”  The element of this chakra is earth, and it is located at the base of the spine. This is where our grounding is, and building a solid foundation is essential to supporting our growth and everything else that we will do in life.

Just like a plant, the deeper and stronger our root, the more we will be able to endure challenges, struggles, hardships, and withstand rain or storm. When this chakra is open and balanced, we feel secure and stable in life, our bodies feel healthy and our minds clear and alert. We feel confident in who we are and are able to manifest our visions and dreams easily. I think that is why this particular chakra resonates so much with me.

To keep this chakra open and healthy, I like to have the presence of the color red around me, and to keep up my regular yoga routine, goddess walks, and dancing activities. How is your root chakra? Need a check up? Come by the sanctuary and I will help you find out. xo

Could You Add More Red In Your Life?

Red – sexy, fun, passionate, and powerful – always was one of my favorite colors to wear. Do you have enough red in your life? Here’s why I think you should have more:

1. Draw Attention. You already know you are a beautiful being. Now it’s time to show her off! When you wear red,  you catch people’s attention and it makes them want to be near your essence and goddess power. When your confidence is low, it is an especially great way to draw attention and boost your confidence. Now if wearing red clothing may be too much for you, try wearing red lipstick instead. 🙂

2. Increase Passion. The color red actually quickens the heartbeat and increases the breathing rate of the person viewing it. When you’re looking to increase your romance and want to feel passionate try wearing red – your partner won’t be able to control their excitement! Trust me, I know what I am talking about. 🙂

3. Attracting Masculine Energy. If you are feeling a bit unbalanced and unsexy, all you need to do is throw on a red dress and a pair of stylish stilettos and go dancing! Not only will you feel sexy and powerful, you certainly won’t have trouble finding a partner to dance with.

4. Action. The color red motivates action, leadership, and determination. If your team is working on a big project (or even just you) you may consider wearing red to get everything moving and inspire yourself and everyone around you to take action. Or how about red flowers in the office?

5. Good Feng Shui. In the Chinese tradition, and in most Asian cultures, red is the color of riches and arouses passion. It represents happiness and love in marriage. That is why most traditional brides are seen dressed in red on their wedding day.

6. Classic Color. Wearing a red dress is a classic and timeless statement that will never go out of style. It is my belief that every woman should have a red dress in her closet along with a beautiful and bold shade of red lipstick; just as every man should have a red power tie. These articles will bring out your fiery spirit when you need it the most!

So if you don’t have enough love, happiness, and passion in your life perhaps you are missing the red. 🙂
