Wild Burgundy


"We now return you to the regular scheduled program."  You hear this when you're watching something on TV and it's interrupted by breaking news, etc.  I now have this sentence on the brain as everything falls back into its regular schedule as summer closes.  And speaking of fall (thought I would let that slide?), I have been studiously going over the September fashion magazines and have fallen in love with all the Fall/Winter 2012 trends.  I was so inspired that I actually decided to incorporate a small bit of a few trends into an outfit which got its start with this really amazing blouse from Forever21.  I've had my streak of wild days and now I express that through fashion (it's written right there!).
So here we have the trend of the color burgundy (the pants and lips), dark lips, animal print (clutch and shoes {snake print on platforms}), teal (nail polish), and baroque (necklace and earrings).
As an aside I wish to express my gratitude for all that have stopped by my blog and have commented.  It looks like I have some catching up to do.
(P.S.  You'll just have to forgive the roots; had to have some minor surgery so had to postpone touch-ups!)
So tell me, what trend have you or are you going to try out for fall?

Blouse:  F21 (new)
Trousers:  H&M (new)
Pumps:  Wild Pair
Clutch:  Kohl's
Ring:  H&M
Cuffs:  F21
Necklace:  Givenchy
Earrings:  Swarovski
Sunglasses:  Local Boutique
Nail Polish:  Sally Hansen "Blue Me Away"
Lipstick:  Revlon "Black Cherry"#477, Buxom "April" on top

*got a freebie Benefit "They're Real" mascara at Sephora and I triple love it.... what do you guys think?
 (by the way: I am not getting paid to say this; I guess they're getting a freebie back! hahaha)


What do you guys think of the dark lips?

  55. I NEED to try out that mascara! Your makeup looks the best ever!! Well, you just look all around gorgeous in these photos. I am loving the darker lipstick. I have a burgundy lipstick like this that I love busting out every fall. It's just perfection and I actually just got a bit excited that I'll get to start wearing it again soon enough. I'm trying my damnedest to hold on to summer as long as I can.
    All in all, beautiful, Dana, just beautiful! xoxo

  63. I love animal print.. since forever... so I have a few items in my wardrobe.. that's a checked trend...
    Regarding the other ones..

    burgundy color... it's big a unchecked, but I'm working on it...
    dark lips... I look very bad with dark shades of lipstick... it will remain unchecked teal ... it's big a unchecked... but I'm working on it... and baroque.... it's big a unchecked, but I'm working on it...

    The statement necklace it's amazing, it looks really cool.

    I wish you to get well very fast and I hope you are OK.
