Swinging Cherries

Are you ready for a new spin on a classic pinup print? The new season Eliana from Collectif takes the classic cherry print we all love, mixes in a solid minty green background and focuses on the outline and shape of both a cherry and swallows. 

With a 3/4 sleeve, sweatheart bust, matching belt and a-line skirt this little number hugs your curves and really flatters your shape. Now when I ordered this dress I thought for some odd reason it was the same exact shape as the long sleeve Delores dress which I live in. Sadly though this was not the case. This is a much tighter fabric and fit than my woodland Delores. 

I'm wearing this in a size 18 and it's super tight on my bust and arms but perfect at the waist. I'll definitely need one size larger in this to wear it comfortably all day long. But this is nothing against this specific style of dress, more so my mix up of the type. As you can see in these images the bust is really not working for me. 

I'd suggest a small busted 18 or a large 16 would be best for this style as it's not as forgiving as many of my normal Collectif pieces.
