Scarlett Leopard Print Trench Coat – Collectif

Can one ever have too much leopard print in their lives? The answer to this absurd question is of course, NO! All leopard print, all the time I say!

This was why I simply HAD to get my hot little hands on the Collectif Vintage Scarlett Leopard Print Coat immediately!
She did not disappoint!

I have a few Collectif coats and love their design and quality and always find them quite reasonable in terms of price too. This is a good thing, given I live in the “Sunshine State” of Queensland and have very little need for my vast coat collection.

I love the double breasted style of this coat and the ability to cinch in the waistline with the sash belt. My favourite feature that regularly features in Collectif coats is the swing skirt design. I just adore the vintage silhouette it creates: Makes me feel like I’ve stepped straight off a 50s Hollywood film set.

The Scarlett coat is beautifully made and fully lined in cotton. Made of 97% cotton, 3% spandex this is actually a lovely coat for warmer climates like mine. I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of this beauty when winter rolls around again.

I found this number was true to size. I ordered a UK6 or XXS and was really happy with the fit for my measurements (32″-24″-32″)

My Cherry Trainers

I’m over the moon with my My Cherry Trainer …It’s a waist trainers dream!

It’s easy to put on and remove yourself with no assistance – even with my epic long claws! The fabric is stretchy but sturdy meaning comfort while still achieving a beautifully cinched waist. Working in a job where I often encounter whole days sitting at a computer, I find wearing the trainer encourages better awareness of my posture and encourages me to sit up straight and avoid my standard hunchback stance.

My job can also be physically demanding and require a lot of movement: Walking, bending and lifting things. I found the trainer still allowed me my standard movement with little restriction. This is something I have found slightly more difficult when wearing steel boned corsets in the past.

The other great thing about the design and materials of the trainer is that it is easily hidden under clothing.One thing I have experienced with steel boned corsets is that they can be a little difficult to disguise depending on what you are wearing. I found this was much less of a problem due to the sleek and snug fit of the My Cherry Trainer.

Plus it comes in this awesome hot pink leopard print. I think I would have liked it based on this alone, without all the other awesome points I’ve outlined!
