Happy weekend, everyone. This morning I found myself getting inspired by burgundy, a color that seems to be everywhere this season, perhaps an offshoot of last season’s romance with anything in oxblood. Though I liked oxblood, I think I like burgundy (which is slightly more red and less brown than the former) even better. In particular I’ve been drawn to all the burgundy boots I’m seeing around and it’s also gorgeous on lips and nails.
So without further ado, here’s my first illustration to be posted here since I moved three weeks ago — it’s really been crazy.
For the girl on the left, I was inspired by vintage corduroy skirts, which there seem to be no shortage of on eBay or Etsy. (The one pictured is a Victoria’s Secret pencil skirt on eBay.) The yellow top is Pepa Loves. Not sure if it’s still available, but I spotted it on the blog Flashes of Style. The two-tone moto jacket is Burberry London. The white dress worn with it is Elie Tahari. Both items are from Nordstrom. The floral “Giving Thanks” dress is via Modcloth. As for the boots and shoes, from left to right there’s the Modcloth “Haute on Your Heels” booties, “Lory” Boots in wine from Nine West’s Vintage America Collection and “Whitney” pumps by Julianne Hough for Sole Society from Nordstrom (They’re pictured here in black but also come in burgundy suede.)
I have been obsessed with burgundy this fall/winter. Glad to know I’m not the only one! these all look great!
Your collections are very cute.
The floral “Giving Thanks” dress is very cute. I love it best.

Love burgundy!Such rich and defined color! Your illustrations are fabulous as usual. My favorites are two tone jacket and tall boots.
hugs from New York,
I love burgundy in the winter 😀
These are lovely! I really want that outfit with the yellow bow top and the skirt, such pretty late-fall colors!
Oh i have been looking in to combinations that include oxblood recently… in fact i have an outfit in mind that combines orange and burgundy. Wonder how that would look.
Great selection, burgundy is one of my favorite color!
Love that! The dress you drew is beautiful 🙂
