My Picks for Fall’s Hottest Burgundy items

The Fashion Minx's picks for burgundy items for Fall

Burgundy is hot for Fall, and it also happens to be one of my favorite colors! ( Refer to my post HERE with my burgundy Balenciaga quilted jacket)  With Burgundy being this season’s “IT” color, you will be seeing more and more of it in stores.  I have put together my choices for this season’s hottest Fall items in this gorgeous wine color.  The thing I love about burgundy is that it’s  flattering on everyone. And, as for accessories, a burgundy bag, or pair of shoes are always a great neutral, and a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit! Which is your favorite? ***Links to all items pictured above are listed below. 😉

Trending: Skulls

What is it about skulls?  We see them everywhere.  On scarves, rings, necklaces, earrings…..you name it.

 

My boyfriend recently got cast as a biker in a film.  He got to rock out tattoos, leather jackets, and of course, skulls.  You have no idea how jealous I was.  I tried to steal his rings and other “skull” props from the set more then once before I got reprimanded.  I couldn’t help it, they were amazing. What was my fascination?

Here are some shots of my boyfriend’s awesome fake tattoos that he got to rock…….along with a pretty cool bike we both sat on 😉

Love the design.  Perhaps he will get a real one one day?

Badass skull hand tattoo…



(Some photos from the set)


And I got to sit on the bike too 😉

Anyway, I digress………..

Once a symbol of death, or poison, skulls have suddenly become chic and in vogue.  Made most famous I would say by Alexander McQueen…….skulls are not just for bikers anymore.  I don’t know about you, but there is something truly badass about seeing these a dainty, feminine girls wearing a ginormous skull ring on their finger. I had to have one.  And after much searching, I found the perfect ring!!!!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE…………..

 I AM IN LOVE WITH MY ALEXANDER MCQUEEN SKULL RING.  IT’S KITCHY.  IT’S BIZARRE.  ITS’S ME. 

 I love the fact that there is a bee on it’s head. It’s like it’s not taking itself too seriously. How can a skull be scary with crystals and an insect propped on top?

Here are various photos of me modeling it.  I can’t stop wearing it.

It somehow makes me happy when I look at it. ( And what a conversation starter.) 

 What are your thoughts?  What is your favorite skull jewelry? Clothing? Accessories?
