Apple of My Eye

When I was recently asked by Collectif to review a few pieces from their line, I nearly fell out of my chair. I couldn’t jump at the chance fast enough and I had already browsed their website more times than I can count on both hands. I promptly picked out a few pieces I had been lusting over for weeks and among them was the “Liesel Gingham Circle Skirt“. This beauty has been on my dream list from the first time I laid eyes on and boy oh boy, am I ever happy the darn thing fits. It can be downright scary taking a risk on a new online store, especially one that doesn’t exactly cater to plus size ladies. I usually opt for safe options, stretch in the waist and all that but luckily found that I fit just fine in their largest size (UK22). I’m probably just pushing it and wouldn’t exactly fit in form-fitting dresses or skirts but I’m pleased to know I fit at all. As a plus size gal with a penchant for vintage, my options are very limited but I’m so very pleased Collectif hasn’t forgotten about me. It would be really nice to see their sizes extended but for now, I’m content knowing I have more options. As for this skirt, well its even better than I could have imagined!

Picking every kind of apple and stuffing my face with cider donuts seemed the most perfect and appropriate setting to first wear out my skirt. This is the first time I’ve been in years and gosh, I had such a lovely time. I need to make this a tradition every Autumn now!
