Fashion Friday Featuring Heart of Haute Pt. 1

This week I will be featuringĀ Heart of Haute, an incredible clothing company who makes their pinup inspired pieces with “Love and No Regrets” meaning you can feel good about your purchases. No sweatshop labor and it’s all made in the USA! How stellar is that? This San Dimas California based company specializes in 50’s and 60’s style clothing, from tops to skirts and wiggle to swing dresses they have it all, and in a myriad of beautiful prints I might add šŸ˜‰

6538656665346528661565146517Adorable with or without a cardigan…but 33 degrees without any extra covering is bit too intense for this southerner.Ā 6599trying desperately to stay warm.

65826550Quick dress twirl then a dash inside to escape the cold.

Pearls: Macy’s

Cardigan: Old Navy bought it years ago but they still have similar ones available.

Dress: Heart of HauteĀ Ā This dress is positively beautiful, I am so infatuated with the neckline! I love that just hanging on to the shoulder’s look, and because of the adjustable elastic sleeves it can be worn a little more off the shoulder if you’re looking to be extra daring šŸ˜‰ The cut of this dress is phenomenal, it accentuates everything you want it to, yet hides what is typically not our best asset, if you want to make that previous statement into a pun feel free haha. Not only is this dress 100% cotton which I love, but its a sturdy cotton. Don’t you hate when your clothes are thin as crepe paper? This dress is built to last, quality construction, sturdy fabric, and a silhouette that will NEVER go out of style. I received a size small and because of the elastic in the arms it fits beautifully. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ so I should technically be a medium but the small fits me just fine. However keep in mind if the dress you choose has “restricted” construction (no stretch) I’d go with what the size chart says just to be safe. I am absolutely thrilled with this dress and will be wearing it often.

Pantyhose: Nordstrom

Shoes: DSWĀ Ā I know you’re probably tired of seeing these shoes but what can I say? They are my go to pinup shoes, not too high of heel, all weather wearability, and a lovely shade of red.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Heart of HauteĀ . Happy Friday I love you guys!

Fashion Friday featuring Go Insane

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Go Insane a wonderful company that specializes in 40’s/50’s pinup, rockabilly, and punk inspired pieces that any vintage/alternative fashion lover would be thrilled to have! I came across this WĆ¼rzburg Germany based company through twitter of all places. Within a matter of seconds of perusing through their products I had determined I wanted EVERYTHING! Skirts, dresses, cardigans, jewelry, etc… Go Insane has it all, and not just for the ladies, they carry men’s clothing as well!Ā http://stores.ebay.de/go-insane
1713Clearly I couldn’t get everything they offer šŸ˜‰ So I landed on their Hibiscus Swing Dress. I don’t know that I’ve ever loved a dress so much. The print is classic, the cut is positively perfect, the full skirt hides any sort of issue one might have with their hips, the cinched in waist gives that glorious hour-glass shape, and the keyhole detailing adds just the right amount of flirtation. *This may be TMI* but I like to give you ladies as much info on products as possible, I was a little concerned about the adorable keyhole being an issue because basically all bras will show, but this dress was well thought out, the bust of this dress is well lined for modesty. Hooray for no undergarment concerns. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ so I ordered a medium and the dress fits just how I like, there is enough room for me to take really deep breaths (my ribcage can really expand you guys) but the dress doesn’t look too big when I am relaxed.Ā 17431733181218081879I181817801833171417601839Flower Clip: Bough it at a craft fair but Claires has a similar oneĀ http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/hair/cat1260200/barrettes+%26+clips/p65480/glitter+edge+flower+clip/

Fashion Friday Vintage Flair.

Today’s Fashion Friday is of a look I put together after doing my hair. Isn’t it funny how just the way you do your hair can inspire the rest of your outfit? I was extremely happy with this entire look and hope you all like it as much as I do.Ā 0649068607140689079307010717More wannabe ballerina antics šŸ˜‰

Fashion Friday Younger Sister Edition

Hey I’m back and hopefully for good this time. Our internet provider was supposedly having trouble with their tower so that has been a hassle. But things are up and running again so Fashion Friday’s shall commence. As you guys know I am an outfit repeater, so I decided to not do a post on clothes you all have seen before. Being the awesome little sister she is Rachel volunteered to model so I could give you guys a new Fashion Friday.

She is just ridiculously adorable!

Hat: Aeropostale I bought this hat when I was around little sister’s age so here is a similar hat at icingĀ http://www.icing.com/icing/us/goods/icing+commerce+root/cat1720084/hats/p33097/fall+leaves+embossed+corduroy+newsboy+cap/

Necklace: Forever 21 but of course I cannot find it there any more but mod cloth has an extremely similar one for only $11.99Ā http://www.modcloth.com/shop/necklaces/swooping-swallow-necklace

White blouse: Target another forever ago purchase but they still have similar topsĀ http://www.target.com/p/mossimo-supply-co-junior-s-3-4-sleeve-tunic-assorted-colors/-/A-14698563#prodSlot=medium_1_13&term=3%2F4+length+sleeve

Cardigan: H&MĀ http://www.hm.com/us/product/06981?article=06981-I

Jeans: Old NavyĀ http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=85754&vid=1&pid=480938132

Shoes: Converse Outlet Store. These bad boys were on clearance which was quite the blessing cause poor little sister has a devil of a time finding shoes that fit her size 12 foot. So far converse are the only shoes we can get to fit her. Only a few of this particular print are still available hereĀ http://www.converse.com/regular/chuck-taylor-stars/136616F_090.htmlĀ and hereĀ http://www.mytheresa.com/en-de/chuck-taylor-all-star-high-tops-191757.html

Fashion Friday Silly and Sassy

I have every intention of taking nice editorial type pictures, but let’s face it I’m far too silly for all that. So I hope you guys enjoy this week’s Fashion Friday. For some reason I was feeling particularly sassy and it certainly shows in the pictures.
