First Impression Friday - Kiera Circle Skirt

First Impression Fridays - Kiera Circle Skirt First Impression Friday - Kiera Circle Skirt & Linda Crop Top Kiera Circle Skirt Named after the beautiful lady modeling it in these photos, the Kiera Circle Skirt is the newest addition to the Heart of Haute skirt family!  A true full circle skirt that's wonderfully twirl-able, with the added convenience of pockets!! All honeys love their pockets, making this garment both fashionable and functional! So far the only print this skirt is available in is the adorable 'Chambray Pin Dot Blue', which is one of my favorite prints.  This fabric has the look and feel of an authentic vintage fabric and remains delightfully cute while being very classy as well.  Plus it's a textured polka-dot fabric that's contrasting reverse is just as cute! Be one of the first ladies to snag this crowd-pleasing skirt by shopping here!

First Impression Friday - the Alisa Dress

First Impression Fridays - the Alisa Dress Welcome to the debut of First Impression Fridays! This FIF is on one of our newest dress styles - the Alisa Dress!  This dress is similar to the Aimee Dress, with longer sleeves added to it. Personally I thought this dress wouldn't fit me well because I'm always worried about my arms fitting into long sleeved garments with little stretch - but this dress didn't let me down!  It fits and flatters without being too baggy or too tight in the sleeves, and I just love the sweetheart neckline. [caption id="attachment_2141" align="alignright" width="214"]First Impression Fridays - the Alisa Dress The Alisa Dress in Olive Matrix[/caption] Another way this dress flatters any body type is the a-line skirt and included tie belt.  It cinches the waist in just the perfect way! [caption id="attachment_2143" align="alignright" width="201"]first impression friday - the alisa dress Dinah DeRosa in the Alisa Dress in Olive Matrix / Photo by Mandie Bee[/caption] I know this dress, just like our Mitzi Dress, will be just perfect for the cooler climates or for winter time.  However the Alisa is ever so slightly less modest than the Mitzi, which is fine by me! So far this dress is only available in Olive Matrix, but if you wanna try out the Alisa for yourself, we'll be happy to make you a custom one in any print you like, just send us an email at orders@heartofhaute.com or call us to order via phone at (909) 599-0715. What do you think, honeys?  Do you long for an Alisa of your own?

Retro Mother Daughter Outfit Ideas from Heart of Haute

Matching mother and daughter (and even entire family) outfits were once common. They were particularly popular in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and through the 1970s. Celebrity moms showed off their daughters in matching dresses, and the image was seen often in ads.

Patterns for matching outfits that you could sew or knit were available everywhere. I imagine that part of this was convenience; if you are buying the fabric or yarn for one garment, why not get just a little more and make two? Or, perhaps daughter's outfit was made from the fabric leftover from mom's. Why did this go out of style? It could be the fact that few people sew or knit clothing at home anymore.

If you want to recreate this retro fashion family tradition, Heart of Haute has lots of options for coordinated looks. We offer vintage inspired, hand made looks and quality - with no seam ripping or bobbin threading for you! Teresa Becker has been designing "Mommy and Me" dresses for over 20 years.

Our popular Chambray Anchor print is available in three adult dress styles, an adult A Line skirt, and our adorable Baby Sailor dress for girls. Our colorful Russian Dolls print is easy to match with, and is available in our adult Monique dress, adult Gypsy Skirt, and our Enchanted Child dress. A family of animal lovers? Check out the options in our Blue Kittens and the bold black, white, and red It's Raining Cats.

Our girls clothing is available in sizes 2T through 6x. If you have an older daughter who wants to get in on the look, our adult XS is equal to a girls size large or 12, and our adult small is equal to a girls size large or 14. If you are searching for a special look for family photos, a holiday, family reunion, deployment homecoming, or any memorable event - stand out and create new traditions with a mother and daughter look from Heart of Haute.
