Trendy Tuesday: The Ox's Blood...

Happy Tuesday my loves.

I hope that every one's day is off to a great start. I began my morning with a prayer asking for some help with this whole time management thing. I shall save my rants for another post though.

I missed last week's Trendy Tuesday installment due to my participation in the Everybody, Everywear challenge so I was very excited to get back to my regularly scheduled program.

This weeks' trend really intrigues me.

Take a look...
The Ox's Blood...

Dorothy Perkins pocket shirt / Jersey top / Dorothy Perkins ponte knit pencil skirt / Knee length pencil skirt / Oxblood Sporty Knickers / Leather heels / Giuseppe Zanotti high heel / Bowler bag / Alexander McQueen leather clutch handbag / Alexander McQueen enamel jewelry
I will admit that when I first heard the name of this color I cringed and frowned. I was utterly disgusted. Couldn't the fashion forecasters just leave well enough alone and stick to what it really is-BURGUNDY!?! I mean who's really gonna wear OXBLOOD!?
That was then....
Now...I'm totally in love with it. There's something so exquisite and chic about the pieces. They exude class and they would make for a killer combo when paired with mustard, gold, or something as simple as black.
How do you feel about this new trend?
Does the name throw you for a loop?
By the way, per several requests, I have now started listing the links to all of the items shown in the collage. Feel free to visit them and buy. With the exception of a couple of the items, most of them are fairly inexpensive. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading!


  1. I've always loved Ox Blood. It's the traditional name for the color in Men's wear. Especially men's shoes. But, the color is rich and sultry. It's a staple in my wardrobe year round. Great post Miss Rockwell!


  2. Love this color for fall! All these pieces are gorgeous!


  3. Ox blood, isn't that just burgundy? Lol. Okay I will go with it, this a great color for fall. I just picked up an oxblood/burgundy dress from H&M that I can wait to rock.

  4. I generally do not like red and burgundy makes me think of an old person's cadillac- but everything on your trend board is cute! Maybe I'll expand my color pallette. I am a new visitor. I saw your blog on a link-up and I've been here about 15 minutes! It's too cute.

  5. I dont mind the name of the color, then again, i painted my room way to much, so these color names are just that to me. But I love the pencil skirt, and I've been eyeing it, apparently so has anybody else because they don't have it in my size anymore. But DP has a ton of cute skirts and stuff. I love all of these pieces too.

  6. Girl you read my mind with the oxblood name. Burgundy has been off my radar but I am glad that its back. It's such a womanly color!


  7. I'm super in love with the color...not so much the name! lol. #BLMGirls
