bloody oxes.

c/o She Inside dress;  Urban Outfitters boots;  Ebay beanie

Can we take a time-out to discuss "it" colors? I kind of hate them. I mean last spring I was so into mint but didn't buy a single mint piece because of my strong distaste towards labeled "it" colors. & then along comes ox blood & I'm just like "fuck" because I'm really into this color. So it was like, I could either ignore a color I really like all season for absolutely no reason at all or I could just stop being an asshole & buy what I want (the faux leather sleeves on this dress.. I die). Also, ox blood sounds so much better than burgundy.

  2. I totally know what you mean about not feeling something because it's trendy but I feel there is no way to express it without sounding like an asshole.

  5. ox blood? is that what they're calling burgandy? I know what you mean about the "it" colors, but I am so out to get burgandy pieces for this fall. It's such a pretty color. and yes the faux leather sleeves on this dress looks AMAZING!

  12. That is how I feel about so many colors. It's so obnoxious that each season to determine what is the "it color".

  20. Trends are annoying. I like trends in the way they introduce new fabrics and colours and ways to wear things, but I hate following them.

    Love this dress. And matched with a beanie, too good.

  23. i know what you mean about "it" colours, though i don't get how oxblood is supposed to be a new trend when burgundy was the "it" colour last winter and they're the same thing with a different name!

  24. Love that dress! You look great :)

  25. bahahah i feel the same way, i am so mad at burgundy right now because i've been wearing it for years and now its "trendy"

  26. Um ya, you can't ignore a dress like that, even if the color is trendy. Cause wow, it's amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. dang you'r eperfect. I feel the same way . "maroon" has always been my favorite color, so it's kind of annoying when it's all of a sudden in style.

    That being said, it's also kind of a cool term, andit means I get to pretend I'm stylish for a bit.

    You are so effortlessly cool

  29. I'm love 'it' colors but I hate when I start to see it everywhere. I also hate wearing a color just 'cause it's the latest 'it' color. But I totally love oxblood for this fall!

  32. You're right, not because a color is trendy we have to include in our closet ... maybe it doesn´t fit us just do not like. But it is also true that it is hard to find colors that are not "in". I've been looking for a navy blue shoes and no where to find them because the "it" color is the blue klein ....

  49. yeah, wtf!! I dislike the name of this shade of colour as well. For me its burgundy or maroon red. I'm not a vegetarian, but still it sound distastefully.

    You look gorgeous!

  72. I COULD NOT AGREE MORE. Sorry for the caps, but I just had to do it. So sick of hearing 'this color is so on trend' or 'this color is so hot right now' ... it's a COLOR and it will keep 'coming back' because it doesn't change. And it's become that every spring it's either 'brights' or 'pastels' and then when the weather gets cold it's 'dark and moody' - so predictable.
    Anyway, sorry for the rant; you look wonderful!
