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?
