Coloring Fall

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

I can live in just wearing neutral colors like black, navy, or even camel tones but super vibrant colors or pastels, totally not my thing. As i've expressed before on Burgundy Whispers, I'm much more interested in building a timeless/ capsule wardrobe just so that I'm not filling my closet with things that aren't completely necessary. Yes, occasional on trend item will occasionally by magic appear in my closet but then what do you do with it after the season is over? My little secret to shopping in color is by using the Pantone Color report! Most of the colors featured tend to bear on the neutral side so my minimalist dreams don't get squandered! Here's a look at how i'm shopping the 2017 Fall Pantone colors....


Wear it Well

For many, fashion is much more than the clothing chosen off the store racks. It’s a total passion, and mood enhancer, I recently watched an interview with Kanye West explaining why he is so passionate about designing fashion. In which West explains that he designs for the kids in mind, helping kids feel confident in clothing that suits them. To be able to carry off funky, unique fashions you have to have the right confidence and much of someone’s courage comes from their own views of themselves.


Beauty Bit, Autumn Rotation

Let's be honest, perfect skin is a myth! With everything that we do to try to achieve that perfect glowing, smooth, pore less complexion how can there actually be perfection? For my skin I definitely go through a process. From different types of exfoliators to moisturizers and brushes, don't even get me started on how many different kinds of primers and serums I have, whole other blog post! If ever there were a perfect time to figure out your skincare routine, it would be at the start of a new season! Here's a look at what I've added to my rotation....


The Fall Necessities

With the start of a new season, means the start of a new look! During this time it feels like retailers are jumping at the seams to get you to come into their stores and take one last glance at those tie strap tank tops and seer sucker skirts at a discounted rate. But before you count them out entirely, why not consider how you can style it for the fall season? Fall and winter are predominantly known as the layering seasons, might as well start early and not feel like you can't wear your summer sales buys more than once. Put them to good use and embrace the last days of the season.


Signature Scent

For years I was taught that women should wear perfumes that had a classic aroma such as Chanel No. 5, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent Opium or other vintages. The older women in my life, especially my mother taught me that smelling like baby powder is the only way to go. While that is a good scent, I didn't feel like it was me. I've been on a journey for years to find a scent of my own, one that wasn't dictated to me. I knew what I was looking for, but for some reason nothing quite stuck with me until I got a whiff of Anine Bing's Savage Rose Perfume Oil. This was the game changer I was looking for.
