|Here come the models bearing oxblood|
Oxblood is on the menu this fall. This is the first time I can remember the color oxblood getting a big play. I guess burgundy is so last year's wine.

Defined as "a dark brownish-red color" with origins in the late 1600s, it no doubt spurted forth from the blood of oxen. Yikes.
