Taylor Swift’s new album Red comes out tomorrow, which means she’s out and about on a mega promotional blitz (I heard two radio interviews and read at least five articles about her before I’d even finished my coffee this morning). It’s yet to be seen whether her entire press tour will be color coordinated, but she definitely started things off on the right foot with this retro red dress, matching lipstick, understated accessories, and nude heels.

Red always gets a lot of play around Valentine’s Day and then we all get sick of it and move on to other colors until Christmas. But I think it’s time to give red some year-round credit: it’s a bold hue that can bring a lot of energy and life into any room of the house. Here are some of our favorite fire engine red accessories to spice up your kitchen, bedroom, living room, or office. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
I walked by an old brownstone the other night and stopped to admire its red door. I looked up and saw that the third floor window was decorated with children’s stickers. They spelled out “I Love You.” I was thoroughly charmed by the place, and turned to my friend and said, “Life would be good if I lived here.” Turns out my instincts were correct. According to a new study, people who live behind red doors lead the happiest lives. Of the 2,000 people surveyed, the ones with red doors were found to be most extroverted with the most laid back approach to life. Other door colors found to be conducive to contentedness were white, green and brown. Those with black doors were found to be the most successful, while those who valued love over career were more likely to have an orange door. Who knew door color was so important? I’d better go out and get some red paint right away as my door color, puke mustard, doesn’t appear to be on the list.[Newslite]
If there’s two things I learned from Sunday night’s Emmy Awards it’s that apparently everyone loves “Modern Family” and I guess I should start watching it. And! Ladies love them some red dresses! Red was the major color of the night, so we’ve put together a collection of some of or favorite red looks. Red carpet not included.
Looking for a man? Of course you are (HA). Then dig out that crimson wrap dress and those sparkly red pumps. A new study from the University of Rochester found that men prefer a woman in red. The study showed men either a photo of a woman in red or one of a woman in green. Study participants were then given a folder with 24 potential questions to ask the two women: Men who were shown the woman in red asked significantly more about how to get her attention than the woman in green.

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don’t end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you’re suffering from a similar pattern, there’s nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they’ve got candy there, you say? Well, hopefully that 400 percent mark-up is enough to deter you. With the exception of “Jackass 3D,” this week brought some pretty heady films to the table and, for the first time in weeks, no horror movies! So go forth and watch. Keep reading »
While our guys on IM had mixed opinions about red lingerie, a British study found that most men kind of hate it. Red came last in a survey of sexiest lingerie colors, below pink and flesh-colored bedroom wear. Sadly, the study also found that 60 percent of women have bought red lingerie to impress a guy. Men and women can’t seem to get on the same page when it comes to underthings. In case you’re still planning to pick up something special for Sunday, the color most gentlemen prefer is black. And whatever you do, don’t pick up any of these so-called “sexy” styles. [Telegraph.co.uk] Keep reading »
