Wednesday Wants & Wishes: Color Crush on Bordeaux

Happy Hump Day! Today I am swooning over just about everything and anything in the shade of bordeaux. Call it burgundy, wine, brick, oxblood, etc. I don't really care, all I know is that I am currently smitten over this deep shade of red. For the past few years I have been a fan of red lips, the bold, brighter, saturated, stop sign red. I wear it year round whenever I needed a lipstick rather than my typical (daily) lip gloss. This fall however, I have started collecting lip shades in a plethora of red shades, reddish purples, dark scarlets, even venturing into the rosy-taupe spectrum. During my wanderings into new lipstick territories, I tripped and fell hard for creamy, rich shades of bordeaux (seen here). From lips to finger tips, I cannot get enough of the color, so much so that I have been seriously stalking some clothing items to bring the color out of its current role as a supporting actress, to a leading lady in my outfits. Here are a few of the things that are just itching to find a new home in my closet!

Color Crush: Bordeaux

Dot Sweater / Earrings / Purse / DressEssie / LippyPants / Aztec Sweater / Satchel / Necklace / Shoes / Scarf

I am always on the look out for cozy sweaters as winter approaches and both of these sweaters would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. Can we talk about how these shoes are the perfect chic update to the classic Mary Jane, right? With the holidays approaching, adding subtle pops of this color to your outfits is a perfect way to introduce it to your wardrobe, ie through dark lips and nails, or in your accessories, like with the scarf, bag (love the color block one and the other is a perfect look for less of the RM Mini MAC), and jewelry (statement earrings and necklaces in this color right now are out of control gorgeous). Its a bold color, so it you are not comfortable donning these cute coated skinnies or this adorable dress (perfect with black tights and booties now, and gold bows and glitter pumps for the holidays), accessories is an easy and affordable way to ease into the color. What ever you choose to do, I hope you find the perfect piece in this gorgeous color for fall and the holiday season! 

Oh, I almost forgot, a look from last week is being featured over at Wednesday Style Connection, so be sure to check it out and link-up your favorite look to join in the fun!
