Fashion Friday Featuring Queen of Heartz Pt 2

Hooray finally time for Pt 2 of my Queen of Heartz feature! If you missed Pt 1 here’s the link to it https://sarahforshaw.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/fashion-friday-featuring-queen-of-heartz-pt-1/  I had been sick with bronchitis since New Years, and I am just now starting to feel human again, all that to say sorry it took a while to get around to shooting this magnificent dress.

I am madly in love with the New Brenda dress from http://www.queenofheartz.com/ From the scalloped edging to the peplum detailing this dress exudes glamour, making it perfect for any special event. Valentines is right around the corner guys 😉 and it’s about to be Wedding season, so whether you’re a bride looking for the perfect bridesmaid dress, or you’re going to be a guest at a wedding the New Brenda is the best choice you could possibly make!6235629762636372638063696400

Earrings: Sam Moons a forever ago purchase so of course I cannot find them but Icing has a lovely alternative http://www.icing.com/icing/us/goods/icing+commerce+root/cat1800040/earrings/p82423/crystal+and+rhinestone+chandelier+drop+earrings/

Dress: Queen of Heartz http://www.queenofheartz.com/dresses/brenda-new-look.html  This dress is a spotlight on your figure, it emphasizes your beautiful feminine curves but hides those er um “curves” we as women are not thrilled about. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ and the size medium fits wonderfully! You can really tell Letty Tennant is a woman who understands quality, from fabric to construction this dress knocks it out of the park. If you’re searching for the perfect dress look no further than the New Brenda from Queen of Heartz.

Shoes: Payless I bought them years ago but target has a similar pair http://www.target.com/p/women-s-de-blossom-nissa-heeled-slide-sandal-assorted-colors/-/A-14702127#prodSlot=medium_1_3

Fashion Friday Featuring Queen Of Heartz Pt. 1

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Queen of Heartz, an amazing clothing company specializing in 1940’s and 1950’s styled pieces. Queen of Heartz was created by the incredibly talented Letty Tennant. Originally Letty was making her gorgeous pieces out of her garage for friends in the Los Angeles pinup scene. Well inevitably word got out and everyone wanted one of Mrs Tennant’s designs. Local boutiques started carrying her stock and her popularity grew even more. So being armed with an eye for detail, and the education of a design graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA Letty Tennant set out on her next adventure and established Queen of Heartz in 2001.

All of Queen of Heartz products are made locally in Los Angeles and Orange County with the greatest care and finest textiles, plus on top of all that should you have a special occasion or just the desire to, you can commission a custom piece! Just consider Letty and her team your own personal pinup Fairy Godmother 😉

Being as it is the new year I say we all resolve to be a little more glamorous everyday, buy quality, and start putting together the wardrobe we’ve always wanted, and I can think of no better place to make that happen than Queen of Heartz.

Dress: Queen of Heartz. This dress is no longer offered on their site but it is offered on their ebay site http://www.ebay.com/itm/Queen-of-Heartz-PINUP-VINTAGE-RETRO-Swing-Skirt-Sateen-Dress-BLACK-Various-sizes-/171204658260 If your size doesn’t seem to be available in this dress, there are similar dresses that are just as incredible on their official site. The Priscilla http://www.queenofheartz.com/priscilla.html the Brenda http://www.queenofheartz.com/brenda-175.html and the Celeste http://www.queenofheartz.com/celeste.html are my favorite alternatives. Honestly whatever your choice you cannot go wrong, every single thing offered by Queen of Heartz is enough to make any vintage lover swoon, and I’m not just talking for us ladies, they carry things for you gentlemen too, how great is that? The historically accurate details are like nothing I’ve ever seen, all the beauty of vintage but without the mysterious stains and the smell of mothballs 😉 Also I found the size chart to be very accurate, my measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ and the medium size dress fits like a dream. Hooray for accurate size charts! This company is simply perfect end of story.
