Mom Chic on the Street. Yes, It’s Ox Blood.

I’ve been actively boycotting this trend.

Not because I don’t think it’s fabulous.  I mean seriously, it is, totally…

Ox Blood Awesome

But the name.

Just think about why they went with ox in the first place.    Why not puppy?  Or human?  Because it’s not as cool when you’re walking around with a puppy blood handbag is it?  Or a pair of human blood kicks?

I guess people just don’t respect castrated bovine enough to care.

But I do.

  1. True Oxblood is a dark wine/brown. You usually see it in men’s shoes and leather goods. If you don’t really like the name, you can interchange it with Cordovan (although technically, it’s a bit darker). These are all a beautiful shade of wine. Which is probably the best name of all…..

  6. Love that bag!

  7. It really is a gorgeous color. I’ma just say red.

    I totally agree in the name. Why with the blood when wine sounds so much nicer?! Still, it’s a seriously pretty color and I’m loving the bag!

  9. Agree on the name, ew. But the color is too great to pass up. Your bag is awesome, looks great!
