Oxblood

by Jessica Sturdy on September 24, 2012

Oxblood. Obnoxious name, seriously addicting shade. I want everything oxblood and I want it now! A deep burgundy with a hint of brown. Finding the exact oxblood shade is tricky because there are some amazing pieces out right now in that gorgeous plum color. It probably wasn’t my best idea to photograph an oxblood outfit in front of a brown wall because the color is popping like it is more purple. Oh well, you get the idea!

Pairing this season’s deep jewel tones with animal print has been my go-to. Leopard seriously pops next to plum, emerald, burgundy, and navy!

^ Yes, it was a bit chilly when I was shooting these pictures at 7am! Not complaining, I love the chilly fall temperatures. :)

gifted LA Made Tee / Marc by Marc Jacobs Leopard Skirt (old, similar here) / H&M Peplum Jacket (similar here and here) / Zara Heels (similar) / J.Crew Bow Necklace / JustFab Tote

PS — How fab is my new manicure? I’m obsessed.

The color is Gelish Diva with a layer of Gelish Twinkle over it. And you can find the iPhone case here!

I refuse to call this color oxblood because it just freaks me out! So I’m going with either burgundy or bordeaux. No matter what you call it, its a fab color and it does look great with leopard! And I’m SO jealous that you can wear those Zara heels!
