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  

5 Ways to Transition Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring!

Fotor0211115110

Who doesn't love springtime!  Flowers, warmer weather, brighter colors, longer days, it's all good!  But we've gotten so accustomed to the cold of the winter our closets may not be ready just yet!  Here's 5 easy ways to help you transition your winter wardrobe to spring! 1. Replace dark colors with brights - With the lovely little flowers on their way it's time for all of us to start thinking brighter!  Bold and bright colors make any outfit more fun, whether your favorite is Aqua, Coral, Lavender, or Pink.  Textured fabrics like Honeycomb Dimensions add an interesting pop to solid colored frocks. springbrights   Sundresses like our classic Sweetie Dress, and our newly refreshed Maybelline Dress are great for this season. 2. Switch fitted with flowy - Pencil skirts and wiggle dresses are popular in the fall and winter months, but spring is all about flirty, flowy and full skirts! Swing dresses are the best because they keep you cooler as the weather starts to warm up. And of course you can dance the night away!  The Milan and Marseilles Dresses have full circle skirts that are perfect for this season, and are available in the loveliest of florals.  We also have full skirts on their way this season - Keep your eye on our new arrivals! Tea party anyone? flowyskir 3. Bold patterns - Pack away the plaid and hide the hounds-tooth! Just until next fall that is!  Replace them with polka dots and florals in pastels and brights.  Bold florals like the classic Rosa and the new Ariel just scream flirty fun.  Every retro loving gal's wardrobe needs vivid fabrics like Russian Dolls and Teal Damask. I can't resist those adorable babushkas! Bold 4. Change up the accessories - The easiest way to add some spring fun to your everyday outfits is to add a flower or two!  Daisies are my favorite spring flower, but you pick whichever you like best!  Bright accessories like the Pinup Couture Amoeba Bag in Turquoise Glitter are a spring must have. And their Wicker Purse just makes me want to have a pinup picnic!

Can't forget a new pair of sunnies - Tres Noir 'Ultra Lux' and a lovely little necklace like the Blingy Bow.  The brighter the accessories the better you feel I always say!

5. Switch up your layers - Springtime means skirts will be getting shorter and sleeves will disappear soon enough. But in the mean time, especially with the weather that can't decide if it wants to be warm or still cold, it's important to keep a little sweater handy.  The Sweet Sweater is wrinkle resistant so you can just throw it in your bag in case the evening gets chilly! It's available in solids or spring patterns.  The Betty Bolero is a great choice for when you want to wear your favorite sundress but need a little extra sleevage! Available in White, Black, and Red, so it'll go with virtually any outfit! sweasters Enjoy sprucing up your wardrobe! Ali for HoH <3
