Oxblood

I know we usually give guys a hard time for only being able to see 7 different colours and 3 shades, but I might have to side with them on this one.  I was okay with the whole "aqua", "baby blue", and "forest green" thing, but are we just using random words to re-name colours now?  Remember the good ol' days when "oxblood" was just called "burgundy"?  That's right.  Burgundy.  Believe it or not, that colour already has a name.  And it's a lot less gory.

  1. I think oxblood is an icky name for a lovely colour so I've just stuck with burgundy or if I'm feeling pretentious, "merlot".

    Love that pretty coat!

  10. I think it depends on how you see the shade. Oxblood to me is actually darker than burgundy! haha, to each their own. Love the jacket!

  11. "Burgundy" is better in my opinion.
    Nicely combined, love the whole photo with the background!

  12. This bridge looks a lot like one in my home town and it's making me miss it! And it is indeed how many names we name the same color essentially.

  15. Your writing has a delightful and fun sense of humor/playfulness to it, but what you say is also very true. I think we are just calling color random names now!

    Love the look, especially the coat.
