Perfect Palms by Collectif

While I love filling my closet with treasures from the past, sometimes those treasures from the past don’t love me.  I can’t tell you how many times I have fallen in love with something on the hanger only to have it not fit.  Additionally, there are some pieces, such as blouses and pants, that are darn near impossible to find! That is where places like Collectif come in quite handy!  This UK based company provides not only a beautiful selection of vintage inspired dresses and skirts, but also tops and pants! Did I mention they have dungarees with leopard print trim? But for me, the thing that really caught my eye was their selection of blouses.  They have everything from rockabilly to sailor to classic to insanely fun, like this Florida Palm Blouse

Made of lightweight cotton, it’s the perfect summertime blouse.  Plus it reminds me of warm California days…

The blouse features a built in bolo, however it that really isn’t your thing, you could remove it by cutting the bolo itself.  Additionally, I was pleasantly surprised to find the bust darts to be more in line with vintage garments, rather than contemporary items, so this blouse is definitely built for the vintage gal who wears a bullet bra (for more on purchasing bullet bras, see this entry), so keep this in mind.

Oh, and I got a free sucker too! Pretty swell, huh?

Collectif not only has stellar dresses, blouses, and trousers, but also has a wide selection of accessories, including seamed stockings, jewelry, purses and even hats! Everything you need to be a vintage vixen or rockabilly gal is at your fingertips.

  1. How the pink the blouse “pops” with the pink capris! You are really good with color palettes, I wish I was! A perfect vintage look with not-so-vintage-origins is still a perfect vintage look! 🙂 I’m going to have to go investigate their website, thanks for the hot tip!

  2. Ohh the colours of this outfit are just gorgeous! I really love Collectif, I haven’t ordered anything from them yet but I definitely plan to, their latest collection is especially lovely 😀

  3. Absolutely loving this colourful, girly, super fun outfit! From the awesome blouse to this pink capris, there’s not a single element here that I wouldn’t happily sport, too.
