Soooo What's up with this...Made to Order Section?

Soooo What's up with this...Made to Order Section?

No, there's no secret handshake to this process. No special knock three times on the ceiling if you want me, baby.  You can buy me a drink if you wanna, but I'll still give you this tip for free, Honey ;) 

YES! Instead of keeping it a secret, we're opening up the opportunity in a way that we can manage - for now, we will see how this works out. So far, so good!  And I am trying to figure a way to make this experience easy for YOU as well. Because...we love you. Duh!

 

It's true, we've offered a custom service in the past to those that ask for it. However, most of those conversations with our regular custom Honey were behind closed doors....or...private messages on Facebook, I should say. Maybe  they want a different color they like THIS print but in THAT dress. Oh girl, we can totally make that happen.

So... Heart of Haute IS a design and manufacturing house. We have the ability to do a lot under one roof. I mean, when we say everything is made in California, it's true!

From the point of making pattern, to cutting, sewing, and finishing....we do it all, Honey.  We even have some of our materials printed in Los Angeles, making OUR items even more exclusive in the world. I mean, doesn't it feel great to know that you own something that maybe 100 other women on the planet own?

In some cases, we offer items that are even MORE exclusive, like that gorgeous Black Monte Carlo dress I posted about last week... there's only 3 of those in the world. Can you believe that? and there's one more left... Better hurry before I get back to the warehouse, ya'll.  

We'll be working on this service on our site this summer to ensure a smooth and positive shopping experience for you, Honey. In the meantime, should you order from this 'Made to Order' section, you can be sure that YOUR garment is actually, really, truly being cut and sewn just for you!

So Long!

(I sometimes like to believe it was the inspiration for Lana's wardrobe on the Archer TV show.)

Congratulations, Pinky Swear!!! Crowned 1st in Pinups Against Bullying

Congratulations, Pinky Swear!!! Crowned 1st in Pinups Against Bullying

Long time Haute Honey, friend, passionate pinup, and excellent mother, We took a moment to interview Miss Pinky Swear and congratulate her on her recent crowning!

Tell us...what is the pinup against bullying contest about? The contest was about inner beauty over outer beauty. It was women telling their stories 
of bullying and overcoming that hardships it can bring.
How did you hear about it? A friend of mine that owns a jewelry shop (Classic Betty's Rubbish) was one of the sponsors. She posted a flier and tagged me in it, so I thought,
"lets enter and see what happens ..."
Who set it up? The Dainty Dames are the ones that put the car show together and the Pinups Against Bullying hosted the pinup contest.
How awesome is your crown? Oh my god it's amazing! Super sparkly! It really makes me feel like a princess!
How long have you been a pinup model? I have been modeling for over 10 years and competing in pinup contests for about 5 years.
What does your daughter think about her mama being a pinup? She loves it. She thinks it's so great. She cant wait to be grown up so she can do pinup things as well.
She especially loves seeing me on stage, win or lose she knows her mommy is a winner!
Anything else you want to include about the contest? I am so grateful for this contest. I haven't heard of a contest like this one. For me i have always been self conscious about the way I look.
I was picked on so much as a kid, and even as an adult, so to be in a contest like this- one that helps uplift women rather than pick who is the prettiest or most pppular- they picked the one with the biggest heart, and beautiful mind. 
Anything else you want to share?.... well, I hope that this is my year of winning. I tried to give up on doing pinup pageants because I knew I would never be the tall sexy type of girl most judges and magazine people want on the cover of their magazines. But I couldn't. I feel I need to make a change in the type of people they choose to be winners. Not all women can be thin and sexy. Some of us are curvy and sexy as well. 
What are some of your favorite Heart of Haute pieces? Oh gosh, too many to choose from. I would have to say for sure the Monte Carlo dress since it is the dress I won my first pageant in.
I would also say the  Maybelline dress cause it's just such an easy everyday dress and it has POCKETS !!!
What kind of Honey are you today?

What kind of Honey are you today?

How are you feeling today?
Sweet?  Sultry?  Maybe a little Sassy? 

One thing we know for sure, you are a Haute Honey if you are reading this!  We all know that depending on your mood, you may be feeling all kinds of honey goodness.  What kind of Honey are you today?  What about tomorrow?  Occasions change, moods change and so do you!  Discover your inner Haute Honey with a dose of Heart of Haute and you will be surprised at what a statement you can make! 

Sweet Honey is a lovely little lady who's excellent dinner parties always leave her guests drooling for more.  She's that dear friend who's got the best advice, once she's done being an awesome listener!  When Sweet Honey reaches for her go-to outfit of the day, it's a carefree floral frock that she can wear with comfort and class that knocks the socks off any onlooker. 

Sweet Honey is everyone's dear friend.  Always in search of the perfect bridesmaid dress, and she has found it in the Heart of Haute for Bettie Page Bridal's new Yvette dress, in care free washable poly 'Baby Pink Shantung'.  Of course her betrothed friend approves!  Sweet Honey saves the day - it's gorgeous, comfortable and affordable - the wedding party applauds her excellent taste (and for watching out for them!)  She is so Sweet!

 

Sassy Honey is a gal on the go, a style savvy sweetie who's always sporting her favorite novelty print.  Whether it's a regular day at school, or a night out at a gig with friends, this sassy babe's style is always on point.

Sassy Honey is having quite the dilemna.  How to go from a busy day at the office to the dance club tonight with no time to change?  The Roxie dress, of course.  With a little cardi to cover her shoulders, her look goes from day to night seamlessly.  The Roxie in fabulous 'Constellations' print, with it's full swing skirt,  is just the answer for dancing under the stars til the sun comes up.

 

Sultry Honey is a boss babe with impeccable taste.  Emulating tones of classic Hollywood glamour in her everyday life is this honey's forte.  Sultry Honey's classy style is sure to provide killer curves with just the right amount of sex appeal.

When Sultry Honey takes over, she can make dressing in work attire an exercise in seduction.  Her perfect workday staple piece; the Estelle Blouse in 'Vintage Polka Dot Pink'.  This semi-sheer feminine blouse leaves a lot to the imagination, with a fit that flatters all over.

Sultry Honey knows how to dress to impress.  The classic Diva Suit is a go-to for this style savvy seductress.  Pairing the Diva Skirt with any Heart of Haute top is the perfect start to a work week, but can also be easily transitioned into a sleek nighttime look.

 

So Haute Honeys, tell me, what kind of Honey are YOU today?

Pinup Couture + Heart of Haute = Best Frocks Forever!

The vintage styling of Heart of Haute meets the timeless fun of Pinup Couture with this cute collaboration collection, Best Frocks Forever! Co-designed by Pinup Girl Clothing’s Laura Byrnes and Heart of Haute’s Mandie Bee and Teresa Becker, this limited edition collection is proudly made in the USA of imported goods and features some of Heart of Haute’s most popular silhouettes in petite-friendly hem lengths designed for the modern gal who appreciate retro flair and unique prints.
This is the first group in a series to be released for a limited time! Shop the Collection Here. The next release will be in December- so keep an eye out! 
Let's review the line, shall we?
For starters, we have this NEW B.F.F. Sweater Girl top in Coral  ($44, sizes: XS-4X) that matches perfectly with the print used for the story. The Sweater Girl top is something imagined up by Laura Byrnes and brought into existence by Teresa Becker. This fitted top is made of a light french terry, making it appropriate for the sweater weather season. The hem is cropped at the natural waistline, making it the perfect piece to pair with the MB Circle Skirt ($76, sizes XS-2X)  This skirt features a 2-inch waist band, zip closure, and is made of 100% cotton. 
Next Up! We took our oh-so-popular Monique Dress and attached a shorter length MB Circle Skirt to it! 
It's flattering and fun. Te Monique Dress has taken on a few variations on a theme. During our meeting with Laura Byrnes of Pinup Girl Clothing, we put together one of our best selling dress silhouettes and added the flirty shorter length circle skirt. The full circle skirt makes it comfortable enough for everyday wear and still keeps that classic twirl-able silhouette. The Monique Dress is lovely in its simplicity with a bateau neckline, side zip, 100% cotton construction, and classic a-line skirt, all of which look beyond joyful in this grey, aqua, coral, pale orange, and pale olive Midcentury bubbles print. ($114, size XS-4X)
Lastly, The Adorable Roxie Dress in MidCentury Bubble ($108, sizes XS-4X)
Dig it!!! Check out the Best Frocks Forever Collection, currently only being sold exclusively with us, Heart of Haute  and our with our friends, PinupGirlClothing.com

Heart of Haute has MOVED....again...but this time for the better and for good!

Hello My Haute Honeys,

So...here's the thing. We made the good  decision to move Heart of Haute to a new shopping platform
and that we think it will work MUCH better for us and for you, honeys! You may notice things look a little bit the same....and a little different around here.

SO HOW ABOUT A CONTEST ABOUT IT!?!?!?


All you have to do is register an account at the new HeartofHaute.com and you'll be automatically entered to WIN a $250 gift certificate!  
Winner will be contacted via e-mail on July 1st, 2015 and we'll make a fuss about you, too ;)

 


 

So What does this mean if I have an open order with HoH?
The truth is you wont be able to check status on your order
without our assistance. Your old account at HeartofHaute.com will no longer be available to you to check on.
If you have an open order or questions, just send an e-mail to orders@heartofhaute.com and either Alisa or Mandie will help you out with status/tracking information.

 

So here's a little bit of information if you care to read on:

So here's the news....We've been having a number of issues with our old shopping platform and finally decided to make the switch to something much more user friendly- for us AND for our customers. We've been making some changes around here about the way we conduct business as well.

To make things awesome for all of us, we are keeping inventory of the items we actually have in stock.

Heart of Haute has always been a "just-in-time" manufacturing type. Yes. We make everything here. If the item you want isn't in stock, WE MAKE IT FOR YOU! What other company does that?  Irma, Irene, and Juana are our in-house seamstresses. Liza is one of our production and sample cutters. These are the MAIN people that put your dream dress into reality and we value you them greatly here at HoH.  Our manufacturing type is NOT typical in this industry.  We do not mass produce items overseas and pack them in a warehouse. Our inventory changes on a daily basis as we are supplying boutiques around the world as well as individual customers that order directly from our website. 

All NEW items (especially new prints/designs)  will still be subject to the 7-10 business day ordering process, as we will be making items to order to keep everyone happy. But instead of offering our entire line this way, as we have since day 1, we will be keeping our basics and best sellers in stock. All fashion/seasonal items will be phasing out as they sell out.    If we have new items in stock- we'll mention it in our promotions.  And if you have a question about the ETA on a certain item, you can always call or e-mail to ask about it. We're happy to help.

So What else can you tell me?

If you've made it this far into reading, you'll be happy to find that I've set up a coupon for you
to use for 15% off, valid today  June 15-June 17, 2015.  Thank you for being a loyal customer and avid reader! I appreciate it, truly.
