Colour of the moment

We are seeing this colour everywhere from clothing to handbags to lipstick and I am addicted to it - the colour that I'm speaking of is referred to as oxblood.  I've never been one to love the colour red, in fact I've stayed far away from it for most of my life.  But with a new darker and edgier shade in town I've turned myself over to the dark side and embraced this colour with an open closet!  Oxblood is so rich and deep with brown undertones and I'm convinced it's my perfect complement.  I'm not the only one thinking this though, nor am I alone on the part where red isn't for everyone which is why this colour is being loved by so many.  It would only make sense that we wear it as much as possible to make up for lost time, right!  It's always fun to discover a new colour to play around with and this one in particular is super easy to incorporate into your look among the pieces already in your closet.  Wear the colour from head-to-toe, pair it with black, white, grey, red or blue or ease into it with a purse, shoes or heck just paint your nails in it! 
Come back soon to check out my outfit posts to see how I'll be wearing the hottest colour of the season.  Are you as crazy about oxblood as much as I am?
