I am not normally an impulse buyer… at all, really. Even if I see a piece in a store I like or online, I wait. I wait till it goes on sale or I wait till the initial “WOW!” has worn off and I decide I don’t really want it, or whatever. Needless to say, I wait.

However, I saw this chevron top at Fedora Boutique in Carrboro last week and I didn’t pass go, I didn’t collect $200, I bought that thing. ON THE SPOT. I feel in chevron-y blouse lurve.

And then I had this (READ: THRIFTED!) super fun velvet peplum jacket in burgundy / oxblood / bordeaux / wine and knew they were a match made in trendy-color-name-heaven.

Can we talk about that for a second, BTW? Like, really fashion world? I love how everyone is all like, “The new hot color this season is BORDEAUX / OXBLOOD.” And I’m all over here like, “Uhhh, that mess is burgundy. And burgundy has been around as long as I can remember. I mean, check with Crayola. It’s been around.”

They’re like, trying to make “fetch” happen or something. Quick! Name that movie!

But in all seriousness, I wanna know when “Burnt Sienna” is going to be the hot new color of the season.

What crayon color do you want to be a “fashion trend” one day?
