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.

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

Blog Share - Southern California Belle - Kitty Faces

You may have figured this out by now... but we're big fans of Ashley (Aka Southern California Belle)!  She's reviewed some of her favorite Heart of Haute items quite a few times!  But this review of the Mandie Bee Ella Top in 'Blue Kitty Faces' is just perfect!  Plus she's got us wishing we were quite as glamorous in these last hot California summer days.  (Bring me rain, please!!) 
Read her review below:

"Everyone is talking about how excited they are about fall, but here in California we are dealing with record breaking heat.  I guess the bright side of living in such a warm climate is being able to make the most of your summer wardrobe.  That means my shorts get to hang around a little longer and I get to pair them with the cutest tops!  I'm sure you already know, but the Ella top from Heart of Haute is such a wonderful separate to have in your closet.  I have more than a few, but this kitty face print is my favorite.  And when the weather gets a little cooler it looks great layered with a cardigan.  It's a top that can survive all the seasons!

She's reviewed our Monique Dress in 'Aqua Doilie',  Mercedes Dress in 'Bouquet', and some Holiday Favorites!  Now she's doubled the cuteness by showing off her little one in our Ava Adorable Baby Sailor Dress (Pinup Girl Clothing exclusive).  Read all about it here-

'I'm one of those people who feels like they need a vacation from their vacation.  We came back from Temecula yesterday afternoon and I'm just not ready to start the week yet.  It was a wonderful three days filled with swimming, wine tasting, a Chris Isaak concert, and lots of family time.  It was a much needed departure from our everyday life.  I hope I don't have to wait three more years to take another weekend off!

How cute are these Heart of Haute dresses?!  While the prints are different, the cut of the dress is the same.  I like the idea of our outfits complimenting each other but not matching (but I love dressing identically too), so when I saw these Sailor dresses I knew they had to be ours.  The dress has flattering princess seams, a tie back, and a nice full skirt that doesn't require a petticoat.  It's also 100% cotton so it's light and breathes really well.  Bianca really loves her dress too!  The minute I took it out of the box she had to put it on.  Over her clothing of course, because apparently she couldn't wait to get undressed.  I think I've created a monster!

Haute Honey and friend of Heart of Haute Ashley of Southern California Belle reviews one of our new Monique Dresses on her blog!  

Here's what she had to say about the Monique Dress in 'Doilie Aqua' -

"I don't know if you've been on the Heart of Haute website lately, but there have been lots of fun changes!  The site itself had a facelift and it's now really easy to navigate.  I love how I can find all the prints of a certain style with the click of a button!  They've also released a bunch of new styles and cute novelty prints just in time for summer.  Have you seen the teal and navy Magic pieces?  I pretty much need them all!

This dress is the classic and very versatile Monique cut.  It's a fitted bodice with a bateau neckline and an a-line skirt.  While I am wearing an underskirt, this dress looks wonderful without one.  The cotton is very light and comfortable to wear.  The best part?  All of the Heart of Haute lines are made here in the USA!  They also take custom orders, so I'm planning on getting a few mommy and me dresses made in the near future.  If you're planning on purchasing from their site, use the coupon code "Haute10" for 10% off!"
