Lucy Luxe Pinup

Today we are joined by the fabulous burlesque performer and cake baker – Lucy Luxe Pinup! We love her style and she’s a total sweetie! So without further ado, let’s learn more about Lucy!

1. Hi Lucy, you’re a huge inspiration to us at Collectif and a fabulous burlesque performer. How did you discover your love for burlesque?
Thanks so much! It’s so wonderful to have the opportunity to inspire other women.
I just adore Burlesque and it was my other true love of Pinup that brought Burlesque into my life. After winning a Pinup competition, I was gifted a term at the Bombshell Burlesque Academy here in Australia in my prize pack and that’s where it all began. If you’d told me years ago I’d have the confidence to seduce a room with sultry striptease, I’d likely have laughed in your face! And yet, here I am!

2. We also know you’re a big fan of baking, which cake is your favourite to make and why?
It’s true, my sweet tooth is no secret. Though, I can’t decide if I like baking or eating the cakes more! I do really enjoy baking vanilla rainbow layer cake with cream cheese frosting: So aesthetically pleasing and pretty but tasty too!

3. What has been your favourite place to visit?
I’m somewhat late catching the travel bug and haven’t been to many corners of the globe just yet. San Luis Obispo in California is definitely my favourite place on earth thus far: The scenery will have you lost for words. It’s also home to the magnificent Madonna Inn which can only be referred to as Pink Heaven on Earth. Next on the travel Wish list are Italy and Paris.

4. What is the best piece of advice you have been told?
You do you, and do it for you too: Do what you love and do it FOR the love of it. If your heart is in the right place, good things will continually come your way.

5. How would you describe your style?
Cute ‘n’ classy: I’m a sucker for a perfect pastel clothing confection (which likely comes as no surprise given my love for all things sweet) but I also love bold colours and classic cuts to channel my inner vintage vixen for a fierce and fabulous vibe.

6. We hear you have a weakness for vintage prom gowns! How many do you currently own?
Oh gosh…So many I actually forget I own certain ones until I uncover them hiding in my closet 😂 Last count was…around 15. I need more glamorous events to attend, seriously.

7. Pick one: Caterina or Dolores
Considering I own two or three Caterina cuties, I think the answer is clear. I often wear this beauty to work to inject some vintage flair into office wear and she always receives compliments. So flattering on the waistline!

8. If you could create your ideal dress by Collectif, what would it feature?
This is a tough one, as Collectif always hits the nail on the head in terms of offering such a wide variety of styles. My ideal dress would have to include a sweetheart neckline, a nipped waist and SPARKLE!

9. What is your favourite print from our current collection? 

It’s a difficult decision between the Nova Rainbow Stripes Print which sings to my pastel loving soul and the Tropical Banana Print which has me feelin’ fruity and clutching onto what remains of the Aussie summer!

10. What accessories would you love to see in the future by Collectif?
I’ve got a real thing for wrist length, sheer vintage gloves but I don’t like to wear my true vintage ones all the time as they easily become dirty and damaged. It’d be great to have some repro alternates in a range of staple colours!


Thank you for joining us, see you again next week for our next segment of Woman Crush Wednesdays!
Love the Collectif team
