Red dresses and Indian saris in the UK

I’m infatuated enough with red colour fashions as it is, and when I come across something as exotic looking as this, I am even more in love. This window of red Indian saris and traditional Indian dresses, all in red, is mind-blowing. The bold colour, the elegant drapery, all seem out of another world. I’ve seen women wearing saris before, on one or two occasions, and have looked it up enough on the internet to want to try these out one day. Like a great dinner dress, I assume carrying one of these off requires a certain amount of confidence and pose from the wearer. Would love to give it a shot one day. Perhaps I need to track down some helpful Indian neighbours, or stalk old Indian college acquaintances on Facebook and ask for Indian fashion advice.

Wall Fountain of Red Brick

The rudimentary wall fountain stands inset into a stark white-washed wall. From the look of the mud-red trough into which the water falls, this is probably meant to be a public drinking fountain. I love the quaint practicality of the untreated red bricks and cement that form the archway behind the fountain, and make it so clearly visible against the white wall. I’m sure this is meant to be white-washed like the rest of it, to fit in and look perfect, but there is a beauty in its current imperfect state.

The Red Website is Live

I love the colour red. It’s the reason I picked up this domain name a while back, and at long last I have decided to make my own personal tribute blog to the colour red.

Here I will cover all things of interest related to the colour red, crimson, tides, scarlet splashes, and rouge objects. If it’s red it will be here. There’s no strict plan for this blog and I hope it grows organically as I work on it.

For now enjoy the journey and along with regular red posts, I also plan of putting up interesting red photographs on a daily basis.
