The beautiful Amanda of retro blog Welcome to Flipsville reviews the Caroline Dress in 'Mod Bloom Blue'
Here's what she had to say about it:
"A few weeks ago, the lovely Heart of Haute team approached me to use a photo from my Instagram on their beautiful Website as well as send me a few garments to review here on my blog - I was over the moon! The parcel quickly arrived and there were 2 beautiful dresses and a cardigan. I've divided up my review posts, and this is the first of the Mod Caroline Dress in Mod Bloom Blue.
I absolutely love Heart of Haute's garments. Their prints and styles are always sublime, and as a seamstress I can vouch for the quality, it is by far one of the best I have come across in ages. Heart of Haute garments are also designed and made in the USA! It's always important to me to support ethical companies.
As a petite and short woman, I have always found it a constant struggle to find a mod A-line dress that fits me. Before I tried this dress on I was worried I'd have the same problem.
Nevertheless, the dress fit like a glove! The shoulders are especially perfect, and the neckline is the most flattering I've worn in this style.
Also pockets!? This dress has pockets! Like most women think, a dress that has pockets always seals the deal...
What I love about this dress is that it is made with 100% Cotton of a medium-heavier weight which gives it the perfect A-line structure and is still very breathable for the summer!
The Mod Bloom print on this dress is stunningly bold so I decided to pair it with
my vintage cream heels and a contrasting handmade green scarf. Also I couldn't resist adding a hair bump and white eyeliner with my cat-eye to really play out the 60s vibes!"
