It is summer… It’s 30°C /
86°F, 17 hours 50 minutes of daylight (which means a very hot flat…), so I put on a lot of sunscreen (SPF 50, of course) before going out.

Today’s photo session was unexpectedly challenging. I really wanted to join Sacramento, Rosy and Peggy Sue at Mis Papelicos Share-in-Style and wear red. It should have been a done deal, easy-peasy… after all, I’m the queen of red, with photo album after photo album of pictures of me in red. Red has always been my power colour… and yet now I couldn’t find a single red dress in my wardrobe.

Yes, red used to be my power colour, a long time ago. But for the last 4-5 years I haven’t bought anything red. Did I just get tired of red? Maybe. Or perhaps I finally reached red overload, saturation point, and needed to experiment with all the other colours that I had been neglecting all my life.
Lucky for me, I found this really old dress (seriously, it must be at least 10 years old… and so is the necklace I’m wearing). And this made me think that maybe it’s time to revisit red; after all, there’s no other colour that suits hot summer weather better…

And a little flashback: just a sample of all those photos of me wearing my ‘power colour’…
