Fresh Fabrics for Funky Fashionistas

frocksemailheader.jpgHey there Haute Honeys! Am I using too much alliteration already? Whoops, I can't help it lately! Anyways - I'm here to introduce you to two of our newest fabrics! They're fresh! They're fun! They're funky! They're NOT for the faint of heart!  These retro inspired prints are bold and colorful, only fearless fashionistas for these frocks! (I know, I know, quit it already.) BeFunky_diamonds_swatch.jpg The first is Diamantes - it even sounds fancy! One of our pals says this print reminded her of the artwork of Mary Blair, I think I agree! This very retro harlequin fabric is indeed funky and colorful.  Definitely for the gal that doesn't mind standing out in a sea of gingham!

Also available in the Maybeline Dress, which is a great choice for spring and summer!  It has ties on the shoulders to easily conceal your bra straps and keep things in place. I love the Maybeline because it reminds me of the dresses I used to play dress up in at my grandma's house.  The one's that I eventually coveted and wore to school once they fit me just right!

Oooo so purdy! Floresitas is another bold print featuring tiny hints of blue and yellow on a stand out pink. Man I would love to have some high waisted shorts in this fabric! But I digress. Floresitas on the Monique Dress seems like a no-brainer, especially since we haven't had any kind of pink Monique's for a while!

Be sweet and sassy in the Sweetie Dress - the classic vintage style halter dress with a sweetheart neckline. The Sweetie really is universally flattering, no matter what size or shape! What could be more perfect? So whaddaya say?  Are you ready to go bold this spring? :) Photos by Mandie Bee / Modeled by Pinky Swear <3 Ali for HoH

What Have We PinUp To? Making new stuff!

What Have We PinUp To?Hey there Haute Honeys! Hope you are all enjoying the first month of the year!  We've been busy bees here making tons of new products, and revamping the favorites with fresh & fun fabrics! Let's talk all about them...

It's Raining Cats   It's finally here! The long awaited 'It's Raining Cats' print has made it onto the Matey Dress, Ella Top, and Moxie Skirt by Mandie Bee.  I just can't resist these adorable topsy turvy felines. Mandie Bee's collection is form fitting for a gorgeous silhouette, and remember the Moxie Skirt & Matey Dress are slightly shorter than the rest of the Heart of Haute products!  A perfect fit for you flirty rockabilly babes to accessorize with your favorite ballet flats if you're running around all day, or a great pair of pumps for a night out! If you're not a cat lady, don't fret - we are on the lookout for a just as cute puppy print for all the dog mamas out there! Royal Blossom - Amanda Dress               The Amanda Dress is one of those timeless dresses that make a unique addition to any retro-loving gal's wardrobe.  It's a vintage inspired dress that fits like a dream, and this particular print is just gorgeous.  A striking tableau of cerulean, dark blue and bright white flowers with spectacular detailing.  This sophisticated floral print is eye-catching and flattering on all skin tones. Florance - Beverly Dress               Florance is a one of a kind print, it reminds me of picnics in the meadow, a fun, flirty date maybe? Especially when on the Beverly Dress, oh Bev is such a flirt! The fabulous Florance print is an array of teeny tiny blue and red flowers. Also available in the popular Sweetie Dress and the Amanda Dress.  I think they are best accessorized with the Pinup Couture Wicker Purse in black. I can't resist that adorable dainty fruit charm! Winter Blossom - Sweetie Dress             Winter Blossom is sure to make any lady the belle of the ball!  Stunning shimmery ice blue with golden florets that glisten as your skirt twirls.  Sound too good to be true?  It only seems like a dream, but it's the truth!  It reminds me a little of an ice fairy, but really it's a piece that can work in any season.  The fabric has a bit of a pearly sheen to it also, so if you're keen on standing out in a crowd, this dress is sure to make you shine your brightest. Also available in the Amanda Dress for those gals who don't like halters.         Just as a reminder dear Haute Honeys - join us on Facebook through the end of January as we are doing another Test Kitchen.  That's where we show you all the new prints and styles we've been working on and get your opinions on which we should keep!  As always we really appreciate your feedback! Sneaky PeekyHere's just a little sneaky peeky of what could be coming your way! It's up to you!  <3 Ali for HoH <3
