Fall Into Fashion: Oxblood
Posted by Gabrielle Anderson Thompson on September 2, 2012 at 6:17 PM
Oxblood, or for those of you who need to brush up your vocabulary, that dark shade of reddish brown, is the color for fall. And if you are daring enough to stray from the usual fall suspects (black, gray, navy), oxblood is just the color you've been waiting for. It looks rich and decadent, which means you'll look rich and decadent in an oxblood fur or oxblood leather skinnies.
And if your standard fall wardrobe is never going to be anything but black and black and more black, try an oxblood accessory like a belt, or one up yourself with oxblood lipstick. It's sexy, trust.
Gabrielle, a self-professed fashion junkie, and the blogger behind Resort Rock Sugar, leads a dual life. Quite paradoxically, she spends her days in a downtown highrise office building as a busy civil litigation attorney, but you wouldn't guess it if you peeked inside her closet. There you would find everything from fringe tank tops to short leather mini dresses, essentially nothing she can wear to her 9 to 5, err, 8 to 8 job. On the weekends, when she isn't discovering hot new designers whilst hitting up her favorite shopping haunts in LA, or taking in the brilliant fashion that is LA's scenester crowd, she is documenting it all via her blog, and probably from a prime seat at the Coffee Bean on the corner of Beverly and Robertson, because in LA all you need to do is step outside to get a little fashion inspiration.
