WIW: Orange top, Burgundy bottom: The Wassail Bowl festive outfit

I don't have orange pants, so reversed Angie's ensemble to try to create a casually festive outfit that I call wassail bowl, hot punch of burgundy wine (pants and other bits of deep wine color), blood oranges with juice (sweater and bag), a bit of whiskey (belt and boots) and studded with some cloves (brown of bag trim).
Does this work? Comments and suggestions are welcomed.

    Love this!!! I continue to be amazed at how well these color combos work, but particularly as you interpret them. This works on every level - color, silhouette, texture, style. I love your WIWs and they inspire me. Of course as a strawberry blond I have avoided warm reds and oranges like the plague! But you are making me want to go out and buy some orange.

    Thank you, Karen and Jenni. This was fun to put together from my closet inspired by Angie's ensemble and the season

    Gorgeous! Yes, it's a scrumptious combination of colors and a great outfit. Plus, the wassail bowl description is perfect.

    Thank you so much, Angie.
    LOL, Cardiff Girl. You should have first prize for your "mulled" reply.
    Thank you, Sterling columbine, and Firecracker. I intended to call the outfit "Gluehwine" after a German mulled wine an aunt used to make, but could not figure out how to spell Gluehwine. In the photo, it looks black but is really a deep wine red. Like wassail, it would be served to carolers with cake or cookies.

    I have learned a new word today - never heard "wassail" before...:-)
    Joy, you do look festive and colors work together beautifully. It is especially a nice outfit to wear on  cold winter day: all these wonderful warm colors will keep you toasty.

    You look fantastic. I love the combination of colors and am charmed by the "wassail bowl" name.

    I am warmed just thinking of a warm cup of wassail. Thank you.

    Haha--Wassail Bowl!  I love it!  I think all these rich colors play nicely together.  It's a really pretty take on a holiday color scheme.

    Thank you, Brooklyn, Debbie and Emily. The vote of confidence for this outfit means a lot coming from such stylish women. The credit goes to Angie for the idea of orange in the mix.
