Bright and Beautiful


When I found out that Collectif was releasing a new line dedicated to 60s and 70s fashion I was beyond excited! I will be featuring a few pieces from the Bright and Beautiful collection on the blog and will be kicking it off with this amazing coat.


Shoes - Target
Stockings - eBay
Umbrella - Forever New

The fabulous Mariella coat is warm, luxurious and practical. I was worried that I wouldn't get a chance to wear this coat until next Autumn/Winter, however, we had a few really rainy days which allowed me to wear it out to the park, for a bit of Christmas shopping (is it really that time again!?) and to the supermarket - it was especially great in the freezer section haha. It was raining all of yesterday and then it magically stopped for one hour, as soon I was home the rain started again... I love good timing! 

This coat has a gorgeous check design, soft faux fur, lovely orange lining and the cutest orange buttons. I went for the size 10 which is what I usually choose when I buy coats as I always size up, this gives me room to layer and move. The Mariella is also available in green, blue and black!

Now of course it doesn't have to be styled like this but I do have a lot of fun wearing 60s mod make-up and clothing. I am looking forward to wearing this coat with jeans and other dress/stocking variations next time.

  4. So cute! Love the tights and shoes with the coat; perfect styling. I've been really confused about this line - I had thought it was a separate company that Collectif are now selling. So if it's actually an expansion of their own line I totally didn't get that! x

    1. Thanks CiCi!! Yes it can be a bit confusing but I believe it is an expansion of there own line as they are focusing on 60s and 70s fashion and it is labelled as Bright & Beautiful. I have seen a few companies do this recently and wasn't too sure about it either to begin with. x

  6. Cute as a button rainy weather look! I've said it before, but I'll happily say it again, 1960s styles look like they were custom made for you, sweet dear.

  8. I absolutely love this coat, I have had to stop myself buying it in blue. I'm trying to pretend it doesn't exist but seeing you wearing it so beautifully has made me even more tempted! x

  10. How adorable is that coat? I love the shape, the plaid, the furry little collar and cuffs. I can't wait to see the other pieces of the collection you'll be featuring. I do like the look of the Collectif pieces that I've seen, they're always very well designed.
