I like to find unique things when I shop and though most of the time that involves vintage shopping, sometimes I just want something vintage inspired that I won’t have to take to the tailors or be oh-so-delicate with, and sometimes finding unique things involves buying from over seas which is why I review so many shops in the UK. Need a perfect example? Check out Collectif, a UK vintage reproduction brand that caters to all kinds of women who love the rocking styles of the 40′s, 50′s, and 60′s. What I found that was most special about this brand is their exquisite selection of separates. Sure they have amazing dresses but you are talking to the Queen of dresses here so I naturally gravitated to the separates section of the e-shop to find loads and loads of amazing tops, capris, skirts, and etc. They also have adorable accessories so this is your one-stop-shop for everything you need if you’re a psychobilly, rockabilly, or just someone who just loves to look hot! I got my hands on a few of their separates and was really pleased with the prices, quality, fit, and style which makes me a total fan. I have this really great flamingo blouse that features embroidered flamingos in the front and on the back and ties at the waist to suit my high-waisted pants, skirts, and shorts and I also have their Hilda leopard capris that I love love love because they hit me just at the waist and are made from the softest fabric I have ever put on these stems. You have to check out my Collectif goodies inside, you will see exactly what I am talking about!This is the Collectif flamingo blouse I mentioned above. I love that it has that old rock and roll feel to it.
I love the colors of the flamingos and was happy to have worn my turquoise bandana and hot pink lipstick with it.
Even the back of the top has a cute image embroidered of flamingos in a sunset with the Collectif logo.
These are the Hilda leopard capris and as you can see from the photo, they are absolutely perfect!Since acquiring these I have already worn them about 50 times. They are so comfortable and still so chic.
I love how they look with my new classic car cardigan.Even better, they have cute little slits on the sides of the calves that give it more of that traditional 50′s feel…and lets not forget that it gives girls like me with chunky legs, room to breathe lol.
