For those of you not lucky enough to have experienced the Blood Oranges of Sicily, you must imagine the most delicious, sweet-tart tasting, fragrant deep purple flesh of the decadent fruit. The peel of the fruit is typically a darker orange with hues of red and dark wine, and are generally the size of medium oranges available in Europe and North America.
Blood Oranges are prized for more than just their distinct taste - they are amazingly high in vitamin C and antioxidants. And such, drinking the juice of this Italian wonder helps intensify and purify your skin - a must for all fashion-forward people.
This fall, when you're planning your monochromatic based ensembles of khaki, gray, and beige, remember the colors associated with the Blood Oranges when choosing accessories - burnt orange like the peel, deep wines like the flesh, and bright greens like the leaves. Your taste buds will thank you, and you'll be one step closer to "la bella figura". Ciao!
