In case you hadn’t noticed I have a *slight* love of Collectif clothing. And this is another reason why!
Last September they released a number of dresses in a print called Autumn Leaves. I was seriously tempted by getting this in the Caterina Swing dress style but then realised that maybe 3 of the same dress style might be a little excessive! So when in Spitalfields Market I tried on and fell in love with the Maria style dress. The v neckline is incredibly flattering; normally if it is this low I can look a bit too busty but this seems to reduce my chest!
It is still pretty blustery and cold in the North West, so tights are a necessity. But as I was going with a paler look then I decided on these biscuit coloured tights. Warm and snuggly! And the shoes? My urban shoe myth Manolo Blahniks “campari”.
My trench is a very old Debenhams purchase from about 2 years ago. They are always a good bet for a decent trench at not excessive prices and tend to have a couple in store each season. I liked that the black trim went with the black fern pattern on the dress! I also added some glass beads I picked up at a flea market in a dark grey/black and a matching pair of earrings from Primark.
Bright, breezy and cheerful!
