BURGUNDY

Untitled-1

A well deserved break from the monochrome greyscale. I’m very specific about what shades I choose to drip myself in. While purple is certainly not my favorite color, I love these shades of burgundy.

The dress is a vintage Issey Miyake slip that my mother passed down to me. I love to pair similar colors with contrasting textures. Like the wool of this long sleeve Alexander Wang shirt. Tossed with a vintage fur coat on top. I don’t really wear coats for function these days. They’re more just for added texture and layers. This burgundy look was topped off with with Mac Faux lip color. Now if only I had some purple velvet boots…

      Yes! I completely agree. Especially in winter, it’s hard to move away from black and white; burgundy is a great color to work in. It’s also the perfect color for a trendier dress silo like this one. Great styling!

    Your style is truly one of my favorites! I love how you went monochromatic, especially with this unexpected purple color. I am also not a huge fan of purple but this shade is nice than a lot of others. I love wearing over-sized shirts with slip dresses which is why I loved this look. It turned out great and you look effortlessly chic as usual. Great look love!
