WIWT - Styling Up A Shirt Dress + A Fantastic Everyday Bag

My Midlife Fashion, Black Rose Collection Halle Bag


Morning ladies so before I share with you my outfit for today I wanted to show you a fabulous leather bag that I've been sent from Black Rose Collection, a London based brand who produce timeless affordable luxury products made from leather, wood & various hides.

The bag I'm featuring today is the Halle & is made from the most gorgeous rich chocolate brown leather & is a unisex design meaning my hubby or son no longer have to look slightly embrassed if we're out & they're carrying my bag :-)

It arrived in a gorgeous royal blue suede drawstring bag & as soon as I opened it up the room instantly smelt of leather, which just goes to show the quality of the product.  

As you'll see from the below pictures it's a great size (43cm x 32.5cm x 10cm) making it the perfect everyday bag that's sure to hold anything & everything you need on a daily basis including your laptop.

Plus a feature I really like is the internal pockets & in particular the keyring on a chain for attaching your house/car keys to.  As I surely can't be the only one who is forever loosing their keys to the bottom of their bag & never able to find them without tipping everything out?!

As you can see from the below pictures it's a great neutral bag that would look just as great worn with neutrals as it does full on print.  I'm also thinking it would look stunning with a silk scarf tied around one of it's handles to coordinate with your outfit.  Plus because of the quality of leather used it's just going to get better with age & is also available in pleated leather version here.

Back to my outfit for today & I'm bringing out a sales bargain I bought at the start of summer that I've been saving up for Autumn.  I just love the style of this shirt dress & naturally the leopard print pattern certainly helped with the falling in love process ;-)
