I’ve never been a big burgundy fan. However, yesterday morning I spied an incredibly chic girl with a burgundy Birkin, and the bag in that color looked sensational. A Birkin is not on my wish list, instead, I’ve had my eye on a few Céline pieces in this fall color.
When I ran the British Vogue image above in an earlier post a reader commented that the shoes make the dress, and I’d have to agree. I’ve been wanting something that screams FW14, and these platforms fit the bill. Unlike many people, I have no problem wearing styles that I wore years ago and remember a pair of Prada platforms fondly. I can already hear the comments…
P.S. The burgundy calf with yellow stitching (it’s all about the stitching) is unbelievably chic. I photographed the bag at the Céline shop on Madison, and Barneys has an envelope clutch in the same color combo.
