- Collectif Mimi Dress in Cranes and Blossoms -
The Collectif Mainline Mimi Crane and Blossom Doll Dress is next level glamour. This is the party dress that I've always wanted- classy, flattering, and comfortable.
I'm wearing a 22 in this dress. The measurements for the bust were very generous, so I went off my waist measurement and found it an excellent fit, with a bit of stretch.
This dress sits below my knees, and I am 5'2" for reference. Compared to the Dolores, the Mimi is quite a bit shorter, but I've found it much better for my height. It would sit about knee length on taller guys and gals.
Sweetheart necklines are my absolute favourite, and great for large busts, so this cut is a winner. The high back is finished with a hook and eye, and there is a concealed centre zip which is smooth and sturdy.
The Mimi Crane and Blossom Doll Dress features elasticated, capped sleeves like the Dolores cut, but the elastic is only on the arm band of the sleeve. The sleeves are pleated at the shoulder so they sit in a raised position. The Mimi also has a more delicate gather in the centre of the bodice than the Dolores, with no decorative buttons.
I love a little black dress, but sometimes they can blend into each other. There's no chance of blending into the crowd with this glamorous Japanese style print. Paired with red accessories, the Mimi Crane and Blossom Doll Dress is an elegant choice for this party season, or can be dressed down for day wear that will make you feel like a million dollars.
