My week started with a breakfast function Monday morning.  I was invited to attend the media launch for the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal.  Had a lovely breakfast, met some very interesting people and welcomed the opportunity to support such a wonderful organisation.  

A "suit" of separates seemed the right thing for the day, particularly as my Manager from Head Office is in the office for the next few days (possibly why I look tense!)

Black and red is a bit of a fast fall back combination for me.  I like the way the red lifts the black without detracting from the drama of it.

For all  my Aussie friends, the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal is being held over the weekend of 25 and 26 May, so if you can, please find a couple of dollars (or more if you like) for when the volunteers come knocking.  Every little bit helps:)  

Have a great week.

  1. You look chic for a good cause!
    I donate a bit of money and lots of clothing and house items to the Salvation Army and I also shop second hand there as well.

  2. Thanks Ofelia. Me too. They have some of the best 'thift stores' in my town. And they run some wonderful programs here also.

  3. Love the red Mary Janes - and you have me thinking about clutch vs shoulder bags :-)

    1. Robyn, thank you, and thanks for dropping by.

  4. Voluntary workers can't be thanked enough!

    Your outfit is work appropriate yet stylish and modern! I love the ruffles and your red coloured accessories.

  5. Thanks Annette:) Ruffles aren't generally my "thing" but I feel they add interest to what is a pretty simple, almost black outfit.
