Romantic Red

Can color really influence men's physical attraction to women? Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, red is already being used  as lipstick by the women to heighten their attractiveness. And the ultimate proof is this study from the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, red indeed enhances male's attraction to females. And men seem unaware of this color effect. Read it here.

Of what use is it then? Lol. Well, while it's given that physical characteristics like facial symmetry and waist-to-hip ratio are factors for being alluring too, those are things that we can't control anymore. So for me, I find it comforting that somehow your clothing choices can sort of help you in this dating department. *grin* Try to wear red on a date? Why not? It's hard to resist these tips from cold hard facts. :P

I've been using this red gown in this blog for so many times now but the effect is still the same. It's such a striking color that I chose to bring it with me to Tokyo when I found out about this luxurious hotel. It is one of the oldest hotels in the city with a rich history  that dates back to 1915. Come to think of it, in a city full of skyscrapers, this landmark stands out too with its domes and it's three-storyprofile. But I think what makes it really iconic is it's red-brick Victorian facade. ;)
