WIW: a happy color

Shopping with a friend yesterday, I came across a pullover on sale in a favorite wine shade. One of the few odd sizes left was perfect for me, so clearly it was meant to be mine--haha! Now I can let go of an old sweater in this shade that I haven't been wearing--because it is past its prime--but that I just couldn't part with because of the color. "Team Wear" here: I wore the new find today. It matches my wine corduroys perfectly.

The outfit: Wine corduroys (made by me), wine wool boucle pullover (Eileen Fisher), black booties (with wine topstitching!) (Pikolinos), silver and garnet necklace (gift from DH many years ago), silver toned earrings and bracelet (Brighton).

I'm not leaving the house today (after returning from swimming this morning), but I am happy in my wine-out and wanted to share it with you.

Any thoughts appreciated!

    LOVE the column of wine, Sharan! Killer cute with the blush specs and salty hair. The pullover was waiting for you :)

    Don't you have wine footwear too? Wine top stitching is awesome. 

    I want to create a column of dark red too! Have these on their way to me.

    Wonderful. I love wine--the color, I mean. You look great in it. These days it's especially important to wear your happy colors at home!

    So pretty.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, everyone!
    Angie, good memory! Yes I do have wine booties. I tried them, too, but liked the look of the black ones better today, maybe because of the black watchband. I've had wine oxfords and loafers, too, in the past, but not currently. Your dark red pants look gorgeous! Hope they work out well.
    Helena, thank you. I always like to find just the right outfit for the necklace.
    Lisap, ooh, I like luxe. Thank you!
    MsMaven, so true!

    Love the look! Fantastic color on you. Very cool that you made the corduroy pants :)

  • Jaime replied 1 year ago

    Love this! One of the colors I am trying to wear more, and great that you paired it with silver. 

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Nikki. I am happy that these pants came out well and I enjoy wearing them. I am in the process of replacing skinny cords that I let go last year, because I didn't wear them anymore.
    Jaime, I look forward to seeing your wines!

    I adore column of wine, so beautiful on you. Burgundy, wine and purple are my favorite colors for winter.

  • Irina replied 1 year ago

    A happy color, indeed - works beautifully for you.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    Mirjana, I would happily wear more purple, too, if I found the right pieces and colors. I agree these are great colors for winter and fall.
    Thank you, Irina.

    I love this.

    Beautiful sweater! I love how you can sometimes find really great knitwear bargains, post-holiday. Wine is so rich and looks great on you! 

  • Stagiaire Fash replied 1 year ago

    Looking good—really good!

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    thank you, kkards, Suz, and Stagiaire Fash.
    Suz, you're so right. I was returning a sweater I had bought on deep discount online at another store when I wandered in to Eileen Fisher and found this one.

  • Jonesy replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous color and I love the play of textures! The new sweater looks perfect, and I'm in awe of your sewing prowess.

    I love it to pieces, it's so chic!  

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 1 year ago

    Aw, thank you, Jonesy and Xtabay!

  • Karie replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous! Head to toe wine looks fantastic on you.

  • kellygirl replied 1 year ago

    So good to see you! Wine suits you and how amazing that the sweater matches the pants so well. Incredible—definitely shopping karma! YLF as always!

  • Staysfit replied 1 year ago

    Great shopping find, a perfect color for you!  

  • Zaeobi replied 1 year ago

    The perfect indoor version of the 'Coat Column' - YLF! The wine reds match so well :)

    Thank you, everyone!
    Yes, shopping karma--good description, Kelly!
