This is an article I wrote December, 22nd 2012 for The Campus Companion

It’s this season’s trendiest color. Oxblood has been all over runways, television, magazines, catalogues, shops, and blogs. You see it everywhere, or at least you think you do. This season has absolutely abused the color Oxblood, which you’d think you couldn’t get anymore abusive than calling something “Oxblood.” I don’t think any other color has been as misunderstood as Oxblood. Designers and merchandisers have been running amuck this season by taking any hue in the red family, calling it Oxblood, and it will sell, sell, sell. I’m not so easily fooled and now you wont be, either! I’m going to show you what the color Oxblood truly looks like:
Not everyone looks fantastic in this shade of red, myself included, so here are some ways you can stay on trend without “drenching” yourself in Oxblood.

Accessorize. Keep your classic winter wardrobe, that you already own and love, then just pop in whatever color trend happens to be hot at the moment with some fun and cute accessories. I’ve put together a collection of 10 truly Oxblood suggestions for you. Now, the shade you see in each image may seem to vary from fabric to fabric and because the pieces are shot under different lights, but I am confident that all the pieces I have chosen represent true Oxblood. Happy Shopping!

These are just a few great examples of Oxblood, but now that you know what true Oxblood looks like, you can go out and shop for this color trend with confidence. Hope you enjoyed!

  4. I was attempting to discover what theme you had employed, – anyone have any clue? SPARTAGEN XT I've utilized a similar overall page layout myself, but discover that your web site loads a lot more swiftly, although you seem to have a great deal additional material. The only issue I've had is with the header, which seems less wide that the actual page in Opera v8.0, although it appears OK in IE and in firefox maybe it's time to swap! Excellent web site, incredibly tidy job, and a excellent inspiration for my simple attempt! I'll be looking to improve my own internet site and will certainly visit again soon.
