Heidi has braces!

Recently I discovered a new vintage/retro brand of clothing by Collectif. They are an independent UK retailer that has been established for over 11 years

New customers receive a 20% discount when joining their USA Facebook fanpage, so it was a great time to place my 1st order! Immediately I was smitten with the Heidi Braces Dot Flock  £30 = $48CAD/US.

The next challenge was to determine what size to order…I had zero experience with UK sizing. I quickly contacted their customer service team for assistance. The rep informed me that many of their items are made from a stretch type material and to utilize their size chart.

Based on my waist 29″ and hips 41″ I went with the UK14.

My order arrived in record time from the UK to Canada! Their International shipping rates start at £8 = $13 CAD/US. The lovely pink packaging was a nice delight when opening the mailbox. Simple pleasures right?

The Heidi with braces fits like a dream! Since I am only 5′-4″, the straps are a few inches too long but they can be easily shortened with minimal alterations. In the photos taken, I pinned the straps to the desired length.

This look is perfect for work or a night out! The Heidi is also available as a classic pencil skirt(no braces) in a variety of colours (red, black, plum) & prints (dots, leo).

Accessories

  • Kitten heels, flats, babydoll, etc.
  • Collar blouse, fitted stretch tops, sexy tank
  • Bold or simple classic jewelry

For a more conservative work look, just add a little camisole.
