Wine and roses


  Burgundy is the name of a wine but also the name of a color, and both are rich and warm. Popular in fashion during the last couple of decades the burgundy color can go between purple and brownish and is always smooth and classy. Also called auburn, wine or oxblood it is considered very European, maybe because is the name of a region in France, furthermore now is on the cover of every passport in the EU. 
  At the beginning I hesitated about mixing burgundy with orange & gray roses mini dress, but I ended loving the outcome, and I liked even more with this vintage maroon bonnet, a present from a good friend of mine.
El burgundy o borgoña, tanto el vino como el color, son ambos ricos y cálidos. Popularizado durante las dos ultimas décadas por la industria de la moda, el color burgundy puede fluctuar hacia un tono mas morado o mas café. También se le llama guinda, rojo burdeos, granate o color vino y se considera intrínsecamente europeo, tal vez por la región de Francia a la que debe su nombre y no es casualidad que haya sido escogido para cubrir los pasaportes de la UE. 
  Aunque la principio dude un poco acerca de combinarlo con este vestido naranja con estampado de rosas en color gris, me ha gustado el resultado, especialmente al completarlo con el bonete vintage marrón, regalo de una muy buena amiga.
