Summer Sugar Stripes

Summer's in full swing, Heart of Haute-lovers, and we have great new styles perfect for all the fun in the sun you'll be having! To help you stay true to your style, and stay cool in the heat, take a peek at our new Sugar Stripes Collection.  

The Maybeline Dress (shown below in Purple Stripe and Blue Stripe) is the perfect dress for your next BBQ, beach party, or even a night out at the local county fair. This sleeveless dress, with adjustable straps, is perfect for those hot summer days and warm summer nights. The Maybeline Dress even has pockets (and who doesn't love a dress with pockets?!)

Summertime is known for concert season! Headed to go see your favorite artist or band? Whether you're off to see a hot act at the Hollywood Bowl, or the LA Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Hall, you'll be a show stopper wearing the Regina Dress (shown below in Purple Sugar Stripe.) It's just casual enough to be comfortable, but dressy enough for any special occasion. (If you're anything like me, fantastic live music is always a special occasion!) For a fancier venue, dress it up with your favorite pumps, or keep it simple, and more on the casual side, with a cute pair of ballet flats.

  My favorite part about summer is that it stays light out later into the evening. Take advantage of the extra sunshine and show off the Vee Dress. Reflect the blue summer skies in the Blue Sugar Stripe fabric (shown below.) This dress has pockets, also! (Have I sold you on the pockets yet, ladies?)

Heart of Haute History! The Original Halter Top

Hello Heart of Haute Honeys, It seems not-so long ago that I was sitting in a hallway at Cal State Fullerton waiting for my next class to start. I spent many hours in my sketch book coming up with new designs; simple things to get Heart of Haute started. Back in those days, we were only selling on eBay and Live Journal communities.  The Heart of Haute Halter Dress, The Heart of Haute Halter Top, Aline Skirt, and Sweetie dress were the very first items in our line.  I can tell you that some of the styles I came up with are still in our line today. As months and years go by, some styles prove to be true classics in the eye of my fashion-friendly female customer. Styles like the Sweetie Dress and the Super Spy Dress, which have both been our line since 2005.  When we notice a decrease in sales and interest on a particular item, we may eventually retire a design. The Halter Top and its big sister, the Heart of Haute Halter Dress, are two of our original designs we decided to put away- but surely, not for good! I recently began receiving e-mails and requests on our facebook page for our original halter top. In efforts to keep things moving forward, I would regretfully tell the customer that item was no longer offered.  Though, after some thought about it and enough requests, we decided to bring this classic piece of Heart of Haute design history back into action! Here's a look back at some of our original photos on models- these date back to 2006.

I realize these are short tops, but I always advise those who don't want to bare their bellies to layer it over another halter or seek out a high waist-ed skirt or pants. Here's to an excellent summer, Heart of Haute lovers. Grab your halter tops for only $28.99! We will be adding more print options in the coming days. With Love & No Regrets, Mandie Bee

Saturday, September 29- the PUG Yard Sale

We are so lucky to be included in the Pin Up Girl  Yard Sale  yet again. This will be the 3rd time selling at this event and it is quite....exhilarating!  It is no doubt that Pin Up Girl has done a great deal for the retro/vintage inspired fashion community around the world. They have formed a GREAT following and the attendance at their events is huge! The first time I took Heart of Haute to sell at this event, I had no idea what I was getting into. I didn't even bring enough merchandise for the whole day! WE NEARLY SOLD OUT OF GOODS! A sea of fashionable ladies anxiously await by the door until the doors open- and then it's shopping madness business time! A bit overwhelming at first, but well worth it if you can make it.  You can always find deals on dresses you've had your eye on for months from both Pinup Girl and Heart of Haute. (I'm a Pin Up Girl Clothing fan myself and we truly do love working with them!) This time around, Audry K will be selling  as well! This time around, Heart of Haute will be providing a huge inventory of new regular priced items, limited edition items that you cannot find anywhere else, and a hefty sale rack of phased out prints, samples, and some irregulars. I make a point to not sell anything that I wouldn't wear myself when it comes to the damaged goods we sometimes get back from production. So even though there is only a pinhead of a spot on a dress, we simply decide it's not worth regular full-price and we pass the savings to you! If you are able to attend, please do! If not, keep your eyes peeled on our facebook page for the exclusive Sale Rack- only available on facebook- after the event. Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012     9AM - 2PM 6730 Laurel Canyon Blvd.    North Hollywood, CA   91606   With Love & No Regrets, Mandie Bee

Are You a Haute Honey?

So what's going on right now? I am on the hunt for as many Heart of Haute customer photos as I can get! We are just about ready to launch our Haute Honey photo album so that you, my lovely loyal customer, can submit and share your pics on our site! Believe me, we love getting photos from customers as well as testimonials.

I ought to mention that when other ladies come and see happy customers in their dresses, it can truly be helpful for them to see how things look on different body types and skin tones. We can also create a time capsule of all the fun prints that have come and gone from the line over the years. Oh, how nostalgic. We sure do miss the Dixie print, don't we?

If you have any photos showin' off your pretty dress, top, or skirt - use #hautehoney on instagram, or please e-mail them to us:  alisa@Heartofhaute.com  

With Love & No Regrets,

Mandie Bee
