My Picks for Fall’s Hottest Burgundy items

c600x545 My Picks for Falls Hottest Burgundy items

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. 😉

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 😉

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.
