“Life isn’t always perfect but your outfit can be”
Having an hourglass figure is not always easy to dress because finding clothing that nips in your waist and compliments your curves is not usually something you can find at the local shopping mall. When I discovered The Dolores Doll dress from Collectif Clothing it immediately became one of my go-to styles.
Many of you who have been following me for a while know about my love of vintage style clothing and styles especially from the 1950s known today as Pinup. I find these 50s styles really fit my shape and I feel really good wearing them. The best part is many of the manufactures are size inclusive and go up to 4X and 5X so almost everyone can look fabulous no matter their size.
The Collectif Dolores Doll dress is a full 50s style swing dress with sweetheart neckline, pleated bust detail and fitted waist. I am wearing the Dolores in dark navy blue polka dots in my standard UK size 18, it has a bit of stretch and comes in many other colors and prints. The dress is so comfortable, zips up the back and has such a lovely fabric. You can create so many different looks with this dress by adding different color cardigans and shoes. For these photos I added a pink cardigan, hair bow, and necklace. I am wearing a pink petticoat underneath. But adding red shoes/cardigan or yellow would really pop and look amazing as well.
The Dolores dress is made from nice weight cotton so it breathes and is perfect for summer. You will definitely be a standout in this gorgeous dress and every season there are new prints too. So hurry on over to Collectif and snap yours up as they do tend to sell out!!
