Can you tell I’m skint? Creating wish lists is a good way of venting my frustration of never having any money! This time I’m looking at Collectif, they are always on my radar but I haven’t yet managed to call a piece my own. I’ve ordered a few things but I’ve never managed to get the sizing right! Collectif currently have a rather big sale on there website, but thankfully for my bank account, and frustratingly for me, most of the things I like are out of stock in my size. So here is what I am currently lusting over!
This beautiful Anastasia Coat and Shrug (RRP £182, current price £70) looks so retro glam and cosy for winter, you can even buy a matching muff! It’s the perfect thing for wondering around a Christmas market in. It’s such a shame it is no longer available in my size as I am currently looking for a winter coat and this ticks all the boxes!
These Grey Bonnie Check Print Cigarette Trousers (RRP £39.50, currently £20.00) are really sleek and would make a really smart and put together outfit, however I’m not sure they would suit my large dumpy thighs! These Bonnie Twill Cigarette Trousers (£39.50) are similar but the dark colour might be a little more flattering for me. Lastly in the world of trousers these Franky Swing Trousers (£45.00) look stylish and super comfortable!
This next dress I can no longer find on the website, even though I only saved the picture a couple of hours ago! I don’t know if I’m loosing my marbles or what but either way I really like the white contrast detail and the high neck on this, it would be great for work and has an almost Japanese feel to it. This red Sindy Doll Sailor Dress (£65) is very similar to one I’ve had my eye on from Hell Bunny, it’s nautical and really fun and I do love red for a pop of colour.
On to accessories and these Judy Classic 50s sunglasses (£9) seem a strange choice, and not just because of the current weather, but because I have actually owned them before. I bought them a while ago but I have a bump on my nose which makes it difficult for me to find sunglasses that sit in the right place, unfortunately these were one of the pairs that didn’t work for me. I still love them though and I am determined to find some cat eye glasses that suit me, they always sit too high! Then there is the beautiful Orchid and Cherry Flower hair clip (£8) which adds a touch of glam to an outfit and its perfect for that rockabilly look.
This Jemima Striped Doll Dress (RRP £53, current price £26.50) is great for if you want to look glam in the office, I am a fan of a peter pan collar! Another dress that I bought and had to give back, this Phyllis Doll Dress (RRP £69.50, current price £17.50) I previously bought in red but it was too big, I now really love this navy version so maybe if I just get this sizing right…. I love the cute print of this Enchanting Bird Print Donna dress (£49.50) and even though I am currently looking out of my window to a very miserable day, this super cute Shelly Polka Dot Print Swim Set (£55) is too cute to pass up while I dream of the sunshine.
