Notice anything different? Yes, my hair is PINK! I’m going pink for a little bit for a super secret reason – and although it’s not my first colour of choice, I kinda love it! And if there was one outfit that need pink hair, this Collectif Toucan Set is it!
This is the Toucan print that Collectif ran for their Spring/Summer 2014 collection (now out of stock). It was one of those prints that I adored as soon as it came out! But as someone who doesn’t wear fitted clothes or shorts, the sarong styles were so far out of my comfort zone.
By the end of the season, peer pressure and a hefty discount persuaded me into buying. I bought the Kiki Crop top and Sarong Skirt… And promptly left it in my wardrobe untouched. It stayed there for a year until I decided ‘Fuck it, why not?’ and here we are!
I’ve spent so long in flared dresses that I’ve actually forgotten that I have a body under all those petticoats! Now. I won’t lie, a sarong skirt is still so far out of my comfort zone that looking at myself in it makes me slightly uncomfortable.
I gave up on pencil/fitted skirts a while back because I just didn’t like how they look on me. It’s probably been about three years since I last wore something this fitted!
It makes me wonder – is there a certain style of clothing that you never wear? And if you do, how do you feel when you do wear it?
