Wilhelmina Buttercup – Collectif

Updated: Jan 2

I bought the plain black Collectif Wilhelmina dress months ago because I knew it would be super versatile. I’d been looking for a plain black wrap because I knew it would be handy to wear to burlesque gigs as a stylish costume cover up that wouldn’t mess up my hair and makeup when taken on and off!

I loved the plain black so much that when I saw it in this cute buttercup print I needed it too!



I love wrap dress styles and this one I find particularly flattering. The cross over v neckline compliments the bust area and can be adjusted depending on how much you’d like to show off and the tie nips you in at the waist. You can tie a bow at the back or front….Have I mentioned versatility yet?! I adore the cute little puff sleeves too.

The navy base works so well with the yellow floral detail of the print. Navy is my husband’s favourite colour on me, so he was a big fan. This number seems to really suit those like myself who are a Winter season in terms of skin tone and what colours best suit.

100% polyester, I love that this dress simply needs a light steam to freshen her up and then she’s good to go! If I don’t need to get the iron out, I’m a happy pinup!

I’m wearing an XXS or a UK 6 which suited my 32-24-32” measurements perfectly.
