Collectif Outlaw Plain Pink Biker Jacket

Pretty in pink is a constantly desired status for me so the Collectif Pink Outlaw Biker Jacket has been on my wishlist for a while! I’d been kicking myself for missing out last season, so was ecstatic to see the style make a reappearance.

The Collectif Biker Jacket truly is a must-have for any pink lovin’ lady because she’s cute, but oh so practical. I actually despise the cooler months and always find winter fashion challenging so I need winter pieces I can get excited about.

Made from stretch denim and lined in luxury with pink stretch satin, the jacket just glides on like a glove and is super comfy. The cropped length makes her the perfect separate to keep you cosy up top without obstructing your waist line and ruining the overall look of your outfit: Perfect with a cinched waist dress, skirt or high-waisted jeans.

Collectif has paid attention to detail with the asymmetrical zip clover, silver metal work and cuff and collar detailing making you feel like this bad-ass biker babe…but still super cute at the same time: The perfect medium if you ask me!

I’m wearing an XXS or a UK 6 which I found a perfect fit! I’m fairly petite up top and hate drowning in a jacket so I love that this is a snug but not restricting style.

Don’t have regrets like I did: Secure your Biker Outlaw and paint the town pink as the cooler months kick in!

Milla Mainline Swing Skirt – Collectif

You can’t go wrong with simple but classic design which is highlighted by the gorgeous piece that is Collectif’s Mainline Milla Swing Skirt.

This is actually something I love about all of Collectif’s designs: I find myself acquiring lots of wardrobe staple items thanks to the timeless and versatile vintage-inspired cuts and lines.

I’m a real sucker for symmetry and border style skirts which was why I was immediately drawn to this number.

50’s inspired, the Milla is a very full skirt that cinches you in at the waist before flaring out in a flattering manner around your curves. Milla is made from a beautiful quality heavy cotton-blend (heavier than I expected actually) and is finished off with gorgeous black velvet ribbon detailing for the chevron trim which I adore.

The heavy fabric meant I found my little steamer wouldn’t cut the mustard with this beast and I had to bust out my actual iron to eliminate creasing. Worth it though!

This style fits true to size. I’m wearing and XXS or a UK 6 which I found suited my 24″ waist perfectly (as advised by the Collectif size guide.)

The Hannah Polka Dot Dress – Voodoo Vixen

Some ladies consider a quality denim jacket, a versatile pant that transfers from day to night or a good pair of jeans to be wardrobe staples. Me, well I consider a good polka dot dress to be a necessity in every closet! The Hannah Pink Polka Dot dress by Voodoo Vixen ticked this item off my must-have checklist!

Voodoo Vixen is a Vintage inspired fashion brand who specialises in 30’s to 60’s style women’s clothing. I bought my first Voodoo Vixen dress back in 2014 and have enjoyed following their gorgeous retro designs ever since.

The Hannah dress features a stylish square neckline, tie straps and POCKETS!!! She sports a swishy swing skirt and does up with an invisible zip closure at the back. I found this shade of pink was perfect on my complexion: David who is my colour police even complemented me on it which is a good sign! He’s the one who prevents me from wearing colours that just make me look ill and as much as I adore pink, the wrong shade can make me look exactly that: wrong!

I hadn’t read the dress description and for some reason was expecting her to be a plain cotton. I was pleasantly surprised to discover Hannah is actually a 95% polyester, 5% elastane blend giving her this gorgeous silky, soft smooth kind of feel when wearing. A quick steam and she was good to go which is always a bonus as well!

I styled the Hannah dress with this sweet Black Patent Heart Buckle Belt also by Voodoo Vixen. It’s a super cute and versatile belt which is actually available in five colours!

I’m wearing a S in Hannah which according to the size chart, is designed for 34”-27”-36” and consequently, was a little big on my 32”-24”- 32” frame. I was able to cinch the waist in a little with the belt, but this was also a little big so I’ll need to put an additional hole in it so I can wear it more comfortably on my natural waistline! Check out the Voodoo size chart to see what would best suit you: The sizes in this style range from S through to XXL.
