Blue Leather and Mustaches

Blue Leather and Mustaches

Winter is fast approaching and its that time of the year for holiday lights going up, family get togethers, and sipping hot coco by the fire. I went to Starbucks yesterday and picked up a salted caramel mocha- my taste buds were overjoyed. The little bit of salt brings out the sweetness of the caramel and the depth of the chocolate in the coffee. On another note, I've lately been into cool-weird quirky things like tiger shirts, bird patterns, and my striped skirt.  So when I saw this comfy sweater with mustaches on it, I feel in love. Especially if you live in a cooler climate, comfortable sweaters are a must. The mustache sweater is paired with a leather skirt, blue leather boots, and cute mustache earrings. To make the outfit even quirkier, take those contacts out and put on cute nerdy ray-bands. Let your quirk out- always in style of course! 

Have a happy Thursday!

Trend Alert: Oxblood Red

AKA my current obsession, oxblood red is the color of this Fall/Winter 2012 season, as many of you may know.  The color can be styled elegant, edgy, or classic- while remaining sophisticated. Some call it oxblood, some call it burgundy, but nonetheless this deep red color is being seen everywhere (including my last post).


I would love if this trend continues to next season too, since I absolutely love this color! My favorite items would have to be the blazer, jeans, tights, and dress. But, first on my shopping list are those hot burgundy stilettos!  

Black, White, and Burgundy

Oh, by the way, I hope y'all know that you can click on the small pictures below the collage if you want more information on the clothes and accessories. Anyway, burgundy can pair well with both silver or gold accents. For this outfit, we combined a burgundy blazer and heel with a lacy black and white look. The bright silver reminds me of winter time and carries off such a clean look. If you're going for more of a casual look, you could always swap silver flats for the heels.  

Shimmering Gold & Burgundy

Showing the versatility of the color, here is a gold outfit with burgundy jeans. Not until recent years have I embraced gold as an accent metal, but now I love the sophistication. Shiny gold, metallic and peplums are so on trend for this season as well, making this shirt perfect to pair with the oxblood denims. With the nude pumps and trench, this look doesn't try too hard. 

Oxblood Elegance

Returning to the silver theme, I wanted to include a formal look. This sweetheart lace and chiffon dress flows beautifully for an elegant event. The fur wrap creates a monochromatic feel for classic beauty. The beaded clutch is absolutely beautiful and matches perfectly with the other silver accessories. 

Burgundy/oxblood/deep-red/my-favorite-color retains so much versatility in styles and occasions. While this color is so hot in stores right now, I have a feeling I'll be wearing my burgundy items for many years. 

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

Fall Fashion and Burgundy Skinnies

Fall Fashion

I've been MIA for a few weeks due to shifting schedules, but I'm back! :) The leaves are transforming their colors and drifting softly to the ground- Autumn. The sun still shines on the cool crisp air as mums bloom and children go apple picking. There's nothing like a warm cup of hot apple cider to finish off a day raking leaves. Oh, I love Fall! 

So I'm obsessed with this burgundy trend from nails to jeans to handbags. Burgundy or oxblood is so in right now and the color suits the season to a perfection. This outfit basically sums up Fall for me with big comfy chic sweaters, scarfs, cute skinnies, and a wonderful pair of booties. I can't properly describe to you how much I'm in love with all of Jeffrey Campbell's shoes. They are so edgy, cute, and unique. They're sold at Urban Outfitters for a reasonable price too! 

I hope you enjoy your beautiful fall day (or summer if your on the other side of the world :)) !
