Now I have to admit that burgundy and nave blue, together is one of my ultimate favorite color combos for fall! I love how the colors give a modern, chic and even a richer touch to an outfit. Burgundy is such a gorgeous color thanks to it's deep wine red hue, it's an earthy earthy color that works perfectly for the season, and it's a lovely color for an accent that adds depth to an ensemble with its sophistication. The color can be incorporated with other fall colors like gray, camel and of course black. On top of that, it's effortlessly coordinates with whatever you already own. What's your favorite combination color with burgundy?
My feelings have been complicated these past few weeks because on the one hand I am kind of brought down by the the gloomy days of late (yes, I definitely miss the bright sun already!), but one the other hand I am more than pleased to rock the defining colors of autumn and get cozy with layers! Recently Ryan, one of my good friends who I met through Instagram, sent a bunch of amazing fall pieces from Charlotte Russe as a final package while he worked there. (So sad, but I am very happy about his new journey, and now he is working for Betabrand!) When I opened the package, he totally WOWed me and today's ensemble immediately came to mind when I saw them - a burgundy lace crop top, light wash jeans, cascade aztec cardigan sweater, and some killer jewelry!
I modeled one of the trends this F/W, which is Bright Color, in my previous post, and another seasonal trend I am totally into and definitely want to try is VICTORIANA -- laces, collar necklaces, dark sides/goths, and chunky boots... I think you can see a little bit of that vibe in this look, and I LOVE IT! Since I wanted to achieve more of a casual look, pairing light color denim is the right pick. This cascade cardigan sweater, oh my gosh. How chic and fun is that? Plus, it's amazingly warm! I am very fascinated with the fisherman's cap that totally matches with the cardigan as my finishing touch.
I am mainly a very enthusiastic and lively person, yet it's definitely fun to reveal my dark side through fashion. Fall is the perfect season to do that, and wearing dark lips really conveys that vibe. That's why I love fashion so much and like to keep my style versatile because I can be anything I want to be!
I recently found the perfect dark lipstick called SANDRA from NARS, and their new lip collection - Audacious Collection - is something you don't wanna miss out on. The collection is mind blowing, especially with the vast amount of beautiful colors that literally makes me want to try each one! Personally I really love how my lips feel with their lipstick, it's smoother than any other lipstick I have. If interested, click HERE to read my article about the collection.
I hope you enjoy today's burgundy and my first look with a Victorian vibe! I am about to go get some brunch with my friend at a shabu shabu restaurant -- yummy huh? Then, off to my second round of shopping for tomorrow's Downtown Seattle Rock the Runway!
