My latest wardrobe obsession is this Collectif Dolores dress. I’ve been a fan of Collectif for a while but the Dolores turned me into a devotee. I am so in love with this dress I have to stop myself from hugging it. Mainly because I don’t want to get make-up all over it.
The bright blue hibiscus print is ideal for holidays and heatwaves but what makes this dress really special is the cut. The sweetheart neckline shows a glimpse, not a yard, of cleavage and, perhaps most miraculously of all, doesn’t slip down throughout the day. It’s always distressing when you realise that after leaving the house looking demure, one tube ride later you’re flashing your bra to the world. I sized down from a 12 to a 10 and it was a perfect fit, figure-skimming but comfortable.
The Dolores dress makes me feel sexy and feminine, but not overexposed or self-conscious. I love it so much I just wish I could get one in every colour. Luckily for me (and unluckily for my credit card) Collectif have pre-empted my desire…
