Stripey Seperates!

stripeyWho doesn't love stripes?  I sure do!  Our lightweight, stretchy striped fabrics come in blue and in red.  These garments are versatile, comfy, and flattering on all body types!   dinahloulou One of my favorite dresses is the Lou Lou -We’ve alternated the stripe pattern to make Lou Lou just as interesting and fun as you are! This dress features a drop skirt for that classic vintage beachy look. It’s sleeveless with a cross v neckline, and is soft to the touch with a slight stretch. teerterriecadetbluestripe The Terri Top!  A quarter length sleeved top with small rouching in the bust.  In the words of lovely retro fashion blogger Teer Wayde - "The lightweight, curve hugging and super soft Terri Top is the best stripe top I've worn in years! Usually having a curvy body you tend to fear horizontal stripes but not me, I love them. This top is beautifully constructed and works so well with my body shape." You can read her full review of the Terri Top here.   marilynGigi A new addition to the collection - we've taken the ever so popular Marilyn Tee and made it in stripes!  Red, or Blue! (Can you see we've got a theme going here?) Also, the Gigi Tee, a close cousin to the Marilyn, has a rouched elastic neckline for a peasant style feel.   BP017-EFFIE-2 We didn't forget the feetsies!  The "Effie" Stripe Sandal from Bettie Page Shoes is an adorable canvas open peep toe sandal with adorable bow design!  Available in all the versatile favorites - Red, Black, and Navy. What do you think, Haute Honeys?  Have you got enough stripes in your life? ;) Shop our whole collection! -Ali for HoH  

Solid Seperates

sweetseparates As the new season approaches, we're all taking a look at our wardrobes to see what we need to pack away until next winter.  But some pieces stay in through all seasons!  What might that be - basic staple pieces. I'm not talking about t-shirts (although I do accept their importance as sleepwear items), those are boring! I'm talking about making sure your solid separates are vintage inspired to match all those cute outfit pieces! circleskirtblack Who loves circle skirts? I know I do - they remind me of when I used to play dress up in my mom's old retro clothes.  Not only do circle skirts bring us back to an awesome time in fashion, they're still just as flirty and flattering as ever.  The all NEW Haute Circle Skirt in Black Sateen goes with just about any top, you can dress it up or down. This true circle skirt has lots of gathered fabric to twirl around in!   LilyTopCollage The Lily Top is made of the same slightly stretchy fabric you love on our classic Super Spy Dress, which is a little warmer so it works for ladies in cooler climates.  It's a quarter-length sleeved top adorned with a cute square knot tie around the collar. The Lily Top is a Haute Honey favorite because it goes so perfectly with our Gypsy Skirts. There's one to match all our fun prints!   newpencil_teal Pencil Skirts are great for ladies that work in an office!  Whether you like yours short, long, with a slit on the side, or belted, these vintage style skirts flatter all the right places. Our New Pencil Skirt in Teal is a staple for bright hue lovin' gals. Easily paired with florals or solids.   marilynteecollageThe Marilyn Tee is a classic off-the-shoulder top that comes in quite a few colors, even prints! Made from soft cotton, it's stretchy and curve-hugging. Wear totally off the shoulder for the classic pinup look, or bring the sleeves up, whichever look you prefer! Available in Black, Magenta, True Blue, Red, White, Slate Blue, Leopard, Spring Argyle, Aqua and Aqua Dot.   The secret to a wonderful wardrobe is to stock it with the right staple pieces.  Great separates last through all seasons and work well with all your special pieces.  Check out our entire selection of knit tops, blouses, and skirts!   <3 Ali for HoH    

Matching Mommy & Daughter Dresses

As you may or may not know, Heart of Haute was started by and is stilled owned and designed by a mother & daughter team.  Designing fashions for young girls is nothing new to Teresa Marie, as she owned and operated a mother/daughter boutique in Downtown Covina for 8 years.  Even before then, she had a toddler line called "Sibling Rivalry"  So here at Heart of Haute we've had the Ava Adorable line since Teresa's granddaughter, Ava, was born! It's always been possible to match up Ava Adorable dresses with mommy size dresses, but we decided just in time for our Crowned Kitties print's release to put together some matching styles!

Get Groovy! ~ New Styles

groovybanner2 Feeling groovy?  We sure are! Trending this season (and every season since the 60's in my personal opinion) are bold, bright prints! Back in the 60's women started wearing what's called a 'Shift Dress' as a sort of stick-it-to-the-man breakaway from the traditional cinched-waist styles that had been in vogue for women for so long.  Nowadays most of us do want at least a tad bit of waist definition, so our shift dress comes with a matching belt.

First off we have this sassy little number we like to call the 'Carina Dress'.  A shift dress crafted from 100% cotton fabrics that are so incredibly groovy! amycarinacooldinahgroovycarina Do you love it as much as I do? I know Megan Draper would love them. :P  These two new fabrics are pretty awesome too, we call them Cool and Groovy.

Another set of new items we have just added to our collection is the Coco Skirt.  This skirt is an a-line style with attached matching belt. 1272452_10152024928187536_1414770961_oamycocogroovy2

Remember, as always in the Mod style, these garments are shorter than our regular collection! GroovyCollage <3 Ali

Fresh Cut Florals

  freshcutflorals Now that spring has indeed sprung - we're going crazy for florals this season and have added a few new ones to our line! chloeblue The first one we call Chloe Blue, and it is a lovely tableau of light and dark blue flowers on a navy background.  This fabric is crafted from 100% cotton and is breathable - a perfect choice for springtime.  Available in the Amanda Dress, the Twirl Skirt, and our brand new style - the Estelle Blouse.

The Chloe Blue floral print is an awesome choice for spring as it's not an overpowering color scheme, and not too dainty either.  Plus the navy blue is complimentary to every skin tone!         adelefloral The next new floral fabric we've just announced is the Adele Floral - featuring lovely little watercolor flowers on a white background.  I love this pattern, it's like a slightly muted version of our Blue Femme floral, which is a great choice for this spring season.  We love it so much we've made it available in 4 garments!  The classic Amanda Dress, the Twirl Skirt,  the Hilda Dress, and the all new Estelle Blouse.

Get the Look - Taylor Swift's Vintage Vibe

Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift has some pretty spiffy vintage style these days.  She's always had a taste for Old Hollywood glamour, but has shifted into a more retro look recently. This spring style she's sporting features a gathered a-line skirt in a light spring floral, complemented with a blue darted sheer top with a front tie collar. Of course the whole outfit is tied together with a pop of red in her sunglasses and lips! We love this outfit because of the overall vintage vibe, without looking too dressed up.taylor-swift-looked-gorgeous-in-a-line-skirt-with-floral-details GetTheLookTSwift   Our version is all American made products, such as our very own Estelle Blouse.  The Estelle has the same adorable collar tie, and similar darting on the shoulders as Taylor's blouse.  We paired it with our Twirl Skirt in Adele Floral - a dainty watercolor motif in shades of green and blue on white background. Topped with Tres Noir Sunglasses in Ultra Lux Red for that color pop! GettheLook2   The next look we love on Taylor is this red empire waist dress with small floral detailing.  The Beverly Dress in Red Vines has a very similar shape and print. This look is chic, yet playful and casual at the same time.  The classic makeup look can we done with signature red lips with our favorite lipstick from NYX Cosmetics. Shoes are from Forever 21! GetTheLook3 In this next look Taylor's wearing a retro button front dress in a light blue shade.  This dress is classically adorable due to it's collar and capped sleeves, much like the Diane Dress.  This dress is a true wrap inspired by Diane Von Furstenburg, and is crafted from an Aqua checked 100% cotton fabric. The classic nude peep toe heel is the Aglais by Bettie Page Shoes, to match the ones seen on Taylor. We wanna know - who are your favorite style icons? <3 Ali for HoH
