With the turn of the season, I’m beginning to get drawn to oxblood – a dark shade of red that resembles burgundy, but has slight purple and dark brown hues. This wine red, bordeaux color feels so apt for fall and I’m liking its visual impact particularly in leather goods (preferably with a muted dull shine). The color oxblood is vampy and portrays passion, fashion and power. Compared to bright red, it’s edgier, sultrier and sexier. The kind of color that rocks as the temperature begins to dip. I love it!

My eyes are roaming to find a new leather jacket online, to replace the short-sleeved sand-colored one I got from Zara. Because lately I discovered that many of the faux leather/PU items I own – including said Zara jacket – have started to disintegrate inside my wardrobe and die an ugly death. :0 WTH!? Is it due to the humid environment of Singapore or simply a result of aging? Frankly I’m rather perturbed by this because faux leather is lighter, thinner, cheaper and available in more varied stylish offerings. It’s almost impossible to avoid buying anything faux leather and look for a 100% leather equivalent instead, in most cases. With the exception of owning one (or two) 100% leather outerwear and bag, IMO it is more practical and economical to get faux leather for most other things – like purses, belts, accessories, shoes, etc. Gggrrr, sucks.
