Ox-Blood Red


 Ox-Blood Red  or Chianti Red

A dark brownish red.

One of the easiest ways to update your look is with shoes or accessories.

Featured here are ankle boots by Alexander McQueen. Any ankle boot in this colour will update your fall wardrobe and can be paired with jeans, leggings or a fluted skirt. 

The clutch is by the French fashion house Balmain revered for their mastery of rock-chic glamour. I love that clutch and I'm hoping that Aldo makes a similar one soon ;) 

Do you own anything in Ox-Blood red? I do own a chiffon mini skirt I bought from American Apparel last year. I may buy a purse in this colour, and buy back my broken bottle of OPI's : 'Malaga Wine', the most beautiful dark red.   

Just a reminder: These overpriced items are here to inspire us all, feel free to scour your closets, thrift shops and local stores for anything in this colour and fill me in after . . . Happy hunting! :)
