Souther California Belle - Review of the Rayleine Dress in Rose Noir

Souther California Belle - Review of the Rayleine Dress in Rose Noir

It took no-time for Ashley A.K.A. the Southern California Belle to woo the hearts of many!

She certainly stole ours and we're glad to have the opportunity to collaborate with her and adorn her with our garments!

 

Today, we'll be talking about the new and sensational Rayleine wrap dress in print,  'Rose Noir'....Southern California Belle for Heart of Haute | Rayleine Dress in Rayon print Rose Noir

We don't typically use Rayons, but we are SURE glad we found this. With a black-as-night ground and those beautiful pink two-tone roses, this print is just a stunner in person as it is in the images. 

It's a fabulous, light weight quality material that flows and hangs like a dream. No, really, you're going to LOVE this dress! 

And yes, it is a true wrap dress. Every woman on the planet knows a wrap dress is sort of like a magical garment that fits perfect on just about every body shape. 

We've added classic 40's inspired touches to this design with a puffed sleeve and gathers above the bust. 

Southern California Belle | Heart of Haute Rayleine Dress in Rose Noir

We've already sold out of this material once already. It's currently available for cut-to-order (Yes, we make it JUST FOR YOU!!!)  so if you MUST have this incredible piece in your life this season, I suggest you get your order in before it's gone again. 

You'll also be glad to see the price is under $100. For a quality Made-in-America dress, that's pretty fantastic <3

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!

Heart of Haute: Top 10 Must Haves for Fall

Heart of Haute is known for those beautiful, figure flattering dresses with the swooping full skirts, the incredible prints, and unique vintage designs. While this may be true, we are also VERY,  very busy when it comes to making all those solid basics every Haute Honey needs in her wardrobe. We know you mix and match your pieces to get that perfect pinup look. We also know that our Marilyn Top, Etstelle Top, and Sweet Sweater have been at the top of your shopping list!  If you don't own one of these awesome staples yet, today may be the day to try one...or all three!!! 

And if you DO have one of these, just remember that they all come in an array of different colors and prints. Here are some of our top picks and best sellers that every Haute Honey needs in her closet this season!

It is an undeniable truth that the Sweet Sweater is one of our greatest inventions! You will never have a better sweater, we promise. This baby is there right when you need it.

Haute Circle Skirt in Patriot Plaid | Heart of Haute

I bet you didn't think you could wear flannel outside of some comfy PJ's or when your boyfriend let's you borrow his flannel at camp, right? WRONG!!!  A few years ago, Heart of Haute took a great liking to a line of flannels and decided they were fashion worthy.  This means warm, cotton dresses and skirts for you! Not everyone can hang with wool, I get it. Our flannels are high quality and light weight. If you don't know, it may be time to find out.

In fact, we had such a great response from ya'll, we added this style in MORE COLORS!!!!  Don't forget the matching skirt!

Ah yes, will we ever get tired of this dress? 10,000 happy customers agree that this is the dress of the century! Modeled by our pal, Bernie Dexter, The infamous Super Spy Dress has been a part of our line since 2005 and it is STILL a best selling item every Fall and Winter season. Honeys even admit to re-ordering when their original one begins to show its wear....it's timeless. It's sexy. It's got a cool name! (I sometimes like to believe it was the inspiration for Lana's wardrobe on the Archer TV show.)

Bonus Feature!   Because Our Super Spy Dress is such a hot seller, it only made sense to offer the same classic cut as a top!

Tip of the Day!  -  The Solution to the Slippery Hanger!

Tip of the Day! - The Solution to the Slippery Hanger!

Hey honey! Do you have a dress that is constantly slippin’ and slidin’ off the hanger? Yeah we all do! Our Beverly Dress is beautifully crafted with a round neckline and tied off with a cute self tie but, due to the wider width of the neckline the dress may not always hang perfectly on a hanger. We have solved that problem for all our honey’s by using just one item. This tip is actually how we hang all our Beverly Dresses at Heart of Haute HQ. We actually use rubber bands! Yes, you heard right, rubber bands. It’s so simple that it’s going to have you saying why didn’t I think of this? Don’t you worry honey we’ve got you covered and we’re going to share with you all a step-by-step picture tutorial on how you can take your Beverly Dress from this
to this:
What you will need: a hanger, two rubber bands, and your favorite Beverly Dress.
STEP 1: Take one rubber band and wrap one end of the hanger with the rubber band as many times as you can.
STEP 2: Repeat step 1 and do the same to other side. Your hanger should look like this.
The grip from the rubber bands will come in contact with the dress and that will make sure your dress doesn’t slide off the hanger. Don’t you worry honey your dress will not be harmed while utilizing this technique.
STEP 3: Now all you have to do is hang it up. Your Beverly will be hanging pretty and waiting for the next adventure.
