I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Heart of Haute, a vintage reproduction line based out of California. I have been a fan of Heart of Haute (formerly Heartbreaker) for a long time, so I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to shoot for, and work with them!
From their website, www.heartofhaute.com:
Teresa and Amanda Becker are a mother daughter team that found their niche in the vintage inspired fashion market, through what was initially a home based business in 2005. They call it Heart of Haute and it is making its own history...Heart of Haute offers great items like Swing Dresses, Sexy Wiggle Dresses and classy Mod and Mid-Century styles. Our items are inspired by 50's and 60's fashion, pinup girls, rockabilly and vintage fashion culture.
When I received my package from Heart of Haute, I was thrilled to open it and find 3 gorgeous dresses and a bolero. My first overall impression of the dresses were that they were unique, well made, and looked like they would be extremely flattering on my curvy body. These gals sure do know how to make dresses to suit ALL body types. In fact, they have just launched a new plus size line, that goes up to size 4x!
Here are my individual reviews of all three dresses (and the bolero)
The Aimee Dress (and Betty Bolero)
This adorable polka dotted dress is a great addition to any vintage/reproduction collection. Who doesn't love a good polka dot dress? The sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves make for an adorable look, that is subtle and not as revealing as halter style tops. It also includes a matching belt which highlights the natural waist beautifully.
The dress features a full A-line skirt, back zipper, and darts from waist to bust for that perfect fit. This dress also comes in a wide variety of colours and prints...all with a matching belt. All the Aimee dresses are easy to accessorize and wear. Made of 100% cotton, the material is light, soft, and comfortable.
The bolero is the perfect edition to this dress. It ties at the neck, and creates a lovely retro silhouette, while keeping your arms and shoulders warm. Its light material is just perfect for cool summer nights, or keeping that spring chill at bay. The soft cotton is not too hot and not too cool....just right.

I am so thrilled to be working with this amazing company, and I cannot wait to shoot more gorgeous dresses for them in the future.
