Happiness In All Small Things : Oxblood and Cobalt






Wishing all the readers a Merry Christmas. Lots of love, regard and warmest wishes to each one of you. see me! The best thing about fashion is that it helps you fall in love with the latest and re-visited trends, patterns and colors every season. And if by now you haven't embraced burgundy (distant cousin : maroon, christened : oxblood) in its complete royalty and luxe, you are living in the past my friend. Ever since the Fall/Winter runways, magazine issues, journals and the blogosphere declared oxblood as THE color, I have been stocking up on the same, getting together the pieces I own to adorn this shade to its fullest. I was stuck between a one.color.tone look and contrasts and if you have been following me long enough, the pick didn't surprise for sure. I wore this oxblood kurta with delicate Kashmiri embroidery tucked into my forever love cobalt and voila! Plus, what ideal way to make room for self cheer on a shuddering winter morning than wearing color. Happiness, as they say, indeed lies in all small things.

Stacked accessories and tan sandals completed my look. Speaking of which, these sandals were grabbed at a steal 50% off. Happiness is in small things...and as they say, sometimes you just need to know where to shop :)

3. Current crush is the octagonal sling bag up for a giveaway. If you haven't signed in for it yet...your chance to do so here.

4. Navy, Mustard, Oxblood (basically burgundy christened), Wine, Gold are my lust-colors this season.
