When we visited Collectif’s Commercial Street store back in November, I fell in love with the Trixie Atomic Star Pencil Dress – I’m a sucker for stars anyway, but this is a real sparkler in black and gold.
Despite many other outfits planned for the festive season, this dress became my go-to dress for almost every event, from cocktails to Christmas Eve drinks to Boxing Day lunch and into New Year celebrations.
One of the main reasons I wore it so much was that it is so very comfortable! With the slight stretch to the fabric it’s easy to move in, yet the fabric keeps an elegant line too.
The neckline is rather plunging and, being quite busty, the cross-over detail did need pinning for me – the fabric sits well here though, so it is not obvious that it has been pinned – phew!
In addition to the pencil dress, the Collectif Atomic Star range includes another dress with flared skirt (Trixie Doll Dress), a pencil skirt, trousers, a bolero and strapless top. There’s also a cardigan and jewellery to compliment the range.
My Splendette bangles in black and gold matched perfectly, too 🙂
