Spring might be almost here, but it was a cold and wet day, and I was wearing my much-loved 'Olive' dress by Collectif to stay cosy. It's a super-stretchy knit, and seems to have kept its shape through repeated washing and wearing. There's a bit of bobbling developing, but that's a minor thing and easily fixed. The neck isn't a very high rollneck, it sits quite low, so it doesn't feel as constricting as some rollnecks do. My only gripe would be that as the knit is fairly thin, you do have to really think about shapewear underneath. In these photos I'm not wearing shapewear, just a slip underneath for warmth, and I think it looks a bit lumpy in retrospect.

Collectif are still running their sale, and at the time of writing this the Olive dress is now reduced to £21.50 from £62, and is also available in black and burgundy. I bought the burgundy one too when it was reduced to £30. I always stock up on things I like slightly out of season to get the deals! What about you, do you strictly shop for each season as it rolls around, or are you a hoarder like me who buys sundresses in winter?
