Every year we see burgundy in the fall. Usually I like it in small doses, but lately I’ve been seeing it paired in twos — a blazer with matching trousers, a sweater and jeans, a turtleneck and leather skirt.

I’ve also been seeing lots of Merlot/wine colors paired with black leather pants, moto jackets etc. I love this pairing too.

Not surprisingly, I couldn’t resist adding some Merlot stingray to our Stingray bag collection. I can see this going to some fancy parties, but also looking good with a black leather moto jacket and jeans.

At our trunk show last week at Laguna Supply, I tried on this V-neck cashmere sweater by Equipment (see below) and now I’m a believer. I think I’m going to need it to go with my favorite Laura Mercier Merlot lipstick and a pair of these Rag and Bone jeans would be nice too!

Last but not least, if Merlot smelled as good as this yummy Agraria Cedar Rose soap I would probably bathe in it. In honor of National Breast Cancer Month, Agraria is donating 35% of the proceeds from all Cedar Rose purchases on it’s website to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Are you having a Merlot moment too?

Burgundy is my go to autumn color. Your new Merlot items are gorgeous

Mmm…that is one swoonworthy colour, indeed:) I need to find some sassy jeans now. Muah

your Merlot stingray clutch is like a piece of jewellery, the only kind I’d wear to a fancy party. Burgundy is one of my favourite shades for autumn. It’s such a rich and sophisticated colour that you can keep the accessorising to the minimum, and I think that’s why I love it so much. The Equipment sweater is absolutely beautiful as well.

Merlot is so rich and lovely. It is a perfect fall shade for your stingray collection!

I’m not normally one for head-to-toe anything, expect possibly black, by my goodness, that first suit is absolutely stunning! I may be a merlot convert thanks to you 🙂

You know i love all colours, but burgundy has always been one of my favourite colours. I just love it. Oddly enough, at the moment i have nothing burgundy in my closet. Time to go shopping, me thinks.

Have a lovely rest of the week.

i am normally not a merlot/burgundy girl (i think it’s because it’s simply not a good color for me) but these selections are really lovely! that first outfit, wow! and the jacket with the leather, love. but your clutch, oh my goodness MJ that is gorgeous!! xx

This is definetely one of my fave colours to wear-it looks so luxurious 🙂 I love the suit but I doubt I could pull it off. The coast is gorgeous too-I love the contrast of the leather sleeves. At least if you spill wine down you outfit it won’t show 😉 haha!

I think Merlot is such a Christmas color which I just love.

This is a beautiful pairing. I do love all those colors together. Thanks for finding that wonderful sweater for me. I do love when someone acts as “my” Image Consultant.

Marvelous merlots, darling!
I need that leather skirt!


Sam October 26, 2017 at 15:06

This is such a beautifully rich colour, i didn’t realized how great a full merlot suit could look.

Natalia | Fashioned by Love October 26, 2017 at 21:56

Such a gorgeous shade… Especially for autumn. x

Rebecca October 27, 2017 at 19:58
