I'm taking a break from Christmas posts today and sharing my new favourite frock from Collectif. This seasons has absolutely rocked my socks off with amazing fabrics, prints and body loving shapes.
After the amazing success of the velvet Trixie Doll dress I snapped up the Dolores Dress with a longer sleeve. I've always owned this style with a peasant style sleeve but this elbow length design is so much more flattering for me!
Created from a bespoke cotton sateen print in green covered in mushrooms and multicoloured leaves. This Dolores dress features a full skirt sitting approximately just below the knee, a sweetheart neckline, gathered with two green domed buttons and a half sleeve - plus pockets!!!
I'm wearing a size 18 and the fit is phenomenal. The Dolores always seems to be a perfect fit or an hour glass body shape as it really makes your assets pop! After a day of wear it actually loosens up a bit so if you are a little over the waist measurements do not fret!
The forest green base and bright pops of autumn colours pair perfectly with my hair and skin tone and I'll be wearing this throughout the year as it covers so many seasons.
Styling wise I've just paired this piece with a bold orange bow headband and a skinny black belt. Now that I own this piece, it's clear that I need to own each and every version of this half sleeve Dolores.
