Week 15 and we are back to a bright colour… Red.
The word red comes from the Old English rēad. Further back, the word can be traced to the Proto-Germanic rauthaz and the Proto-Indo European root reudh-. In Sanskrit, the word rudhira means red or blood. In the English language, the word red is associated with the color of blood, certain flowers (e.g. roses), and ripe fruits (e.g. apples, cherries). Fire is also strongly connected, as is the sun and the sky at sunset.
In the electromagnetic spectrum, red is any of a number of similar colors evoked by light consisting predominantly of the longest wavelengths of light discernible by the human eye, in the wavelength range of roughly 630–740 nanometres (nm), and wavelengths beyond 740 nm is infrared.
So given that red can bright or dark, and is associated with Valentine’s Day, I have done a mix-&-match…
Skin – Heartsick – Spirit : Bliss : Antique Kis
Hair – Rock Candy – Skippy (carrot brown)
Top – Ricielli – MAXINE poncho (russet)
Pants – Pompompom – Corduroys (red)
Shoes – Kookie – Enya (dark choc)
