Oxblood, Marsala, Shiraz whatever you call it … maroon (maybe I am becoming a fully-fledged Queenslander ?) and I are having a moment.

I don’t think I have worn this colour – 2015 colour of the year no less.. since a great Mango fluted skirt & fitted little jacket in late 90s – I thought I was so 1940s Dior eat your heart out..

Anyway – the lovely folks at Louenhide gifted me a few bags to try out – knowing that I am a leather all the way girl – however, I have to admit the “Anna” below has definitely converted me to consider high quality vegan leather or PU – who would have thunk it ? – if I had a hat I would eat it. #omnomnom

Talking of leather – Louenhide have some incredible & affordable leather bags  that I am excited to show you too.. #watchthisspace.

Anyway – I usually post what I am wearing on Instagram most days – Ms 4 yr old aka #smsminiphotographer takes a wee snap before we have to jump in the car  – (not exactly style blogger extraordinaire) but with full-time work that is not really a reality – and I am all about showing women how easy it is to have some Instant Style – so for those who want to Shop My Style you now can below.

I am not the Buy Buy Buy type of girl and really believe in Closet Keepers so many pieces in my wardrobe are a couple of seasons old even up to 20 years old (was the 90s that long ago ?)  and passed down heirlooms  – but I can find folks a similar type of piece.

Let me know on IG or FB if you want more of these.

This is what I wore for some business meetings and client meeting today.

Let me know how you go.

Oh and yes .. new hair – it seems that going from black to platinum blond over several stages was a bridge too far for my barnet so quick chop and new blank slate.
