My only issue with this color is the name! Ugh! How horrible is the name "oxblood"?! It's called burgundy, people. Or maroon, but I think burgundy is more purple than maroon. Either way, I prefer those two names to oxblood. Just saying it, makes me cringe.
Have you ever gone to get your hair colored at a salon and they call the color "caramel" or "mocha"? Don't those colors just sound so delicious? Or maybe "fire red" or "cherry red"? Those names are so descriptive and you can visualize the color so vividly. Now do the same with the word "oxblood". Did your stomach just turn too? Blegh. No, thank you. I'll stick to burgundy (or maroon).
I'm done ranting about it (for now) but I do love the color and I'm so stoked it's popular now. It used to be non-existent! Unless you lived in the 70s. Is anything new? I've never really followed a bunch of trends but this is one that has me in it's grip. This and sequins.. and military.. and studs... and velvet.. ONLY A FEW!
Here are some pieces I'm loving in this color:
top left to bottom right: Sister Jane studded jacket, Alexander Wang tote, Asos military coat, Legend studded heels, studded shoulder tunic, Hybrid dress, Topshop snood
I'm honestly in love with all of these. Especially that tunic and both the jackets! AH! I wish my Christmas list could have a non-existent price limit. (The tunic is a strong possibility.) Maybe next week I'll find similar, more affordable, pieces... hmmmm.
If you haven't checked out my Tattuesday post from yesterday, please do. I had some ideas about a possible video from Black Friday and/or a haul. Also, if you didn't hear, I GOT A NEW CAMERA! Testing out that bad boy tomorrow.
I will be posting tomorrow with Things I'm Thankful for Thursday, in honor of the holiday, so check back BUT in case you're all too busy to read...
We have about 3 Thanksgivings to go to, so wish our belly's luck!
