If we’re sure of anything, it’s that Claire Danes knows the power of bold color. Not only did the star arrive to The Late Show with David Letterman yesterday sporting new red locks, but she also debuted a head-to-toe red ensemble.
Before we get into all the different ways you can wear red, let’s talk about the psychology of this color, because these can be important points to consider when wearing the color.
The first thing I always tell my clients is to never ask for something wearing red. Red can often be considered an intense or angry color that has the ability to evoke aggression in others. Asking for something, like a raise for example, wearing a lot of red isn’t something I’d recommend.
At the same time, red is also energizing; it excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. Signifying a more pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, it is why you often see male leaders in red ties.
Now, interestingly, you can also read more about The Red Dress Effect, which claims that “red dresses muddle men’s minds” and that “men rate women wearing red clothing as being more interested in sex, hinting that humans may be conditioned to associate the color with fertility.” In summary, the article encourages women to wear red cautiously and thoughtfully as the color does have the ability to send mixed messages to men.

I love my Not Rated shoes. They are stylish and make my feet and outfit look the absolute best. If you wear a pair of shoes the add to you walk Not Rated are those shoes. I have had people stop me to ask if could teach the to walk in heels. What great brand of shoes.
I found this boot in the Toronto Star. I think it is fanastic even thought I would never actually wear. It is a great artisic design. Look closely to see the art work that Dolce Gabanna has put into this boot.
This is what the Star had to say:
This is a boot that takes footwear to artistic heights. It looks like it might be made from the canvas of one of the Italian Renaissance masters. In fact, it’s from another set of Italian artists — Dolce & Gabbana. It’s like stepping out with a masterpiece at your feet.

I guess we alway knew it. It is always good when science proves what we have just simply believed. University of Portsmouth report state heels change the way the entire body moves. From shoulders to feet move in a way the show off femininity. A woman wearing heals is seen as more attractive even before her face is notice.
To avoid the rating of attractiveness being influenced by anything other than high heels, the researchers used a process known as point-light display: lit markers are placed on key parts of the body and the raters or judges see only the patterns of these lights as the woman walks.
Men and women viewed 30-second video clips of the point-light displays of the walkers in high heels and flat shoes moving towards them. They then made judgements for femininity and attractiveness. All the women were rated as more attractive when wearing heels, and women judges rated them as more attractive than did the men.
In a second experiment, people were asked to judge whether the point-light display of women walking towards them was a man or woman. When the women were wearing flat shoes they were nearly twice as likely to be viewed as a man.
The researchers also analysed how women walked when wearing heels. They found that an average woman walked more quickly, changing from 106 to 110 steps a minutes, but with shorter strides: from 1.24 to 1.20 metres. “Judges rated the displays of the walkers in high heels as significantly more attractive than the same walkers in flat shoes,” say the researchers. “Women in high heels walked in a fashion more characteristic of female gait. The results are consistent with the idea that wearing high heels makes women look more attractive.”
This is a lot think about when buying stylish shoes. Personally this blogger loves wearing shoes of all types but typically I wear shoes with heel from 7cm to 11 inches in height. Watch the videos below and decide for your self. It could be fun.
