So, reason eleventy billion why I love Collectif is the new Antoinette flamingo print dress. I had a charity ball to go to last weekend, and this seemed like it would be the perfect thing, paired with my Lindy Bop shoes.
The dress itself kind of surprised me with just how wonderful it was when it arrived, I mean, I make no secret of my love of Collectif, particularly recently, with my new Dolores and my sale picks, but frankly Antoinette is on a par with this beauty. The fabric itself has a lovely satin feel, rather than the cotton sateen I was expecting, and it's fully lined, with several layers of tulle to make the skirt pretty substantial on it's own. (I added a petticoat, but you really don't *need* to, at all!)
Since it was a special occasion, I went all out and wore some pink lipstick (I'm *so* not a make-up wearer, this is about as good as it ever gets for me!). I felt super self-conscious and had to reapply it about seven times, but it kind of made me feel more"fancy".
Ever put on a dress you felt was just made for a party?
