Heart of Haute Giveaway: Atomic Cats + Sugar Stripes

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

When I'm shopping on Heart of Haute I always have a hard time trying to decide whether or not I want a dress or one of the amazing tops offered and in this case, I gave up and chose one of each.  Also, in case you missed mention of it Monday, we've partnered with Heart of Haute to offer a giveaway and there are details at the end of this post about it. 

Outfit Details:
Ella Top in Atomic Cats! Print c/o Heart of Haute
Red Circle Skirt  |  vintage (similar here)
Va Va Voluminous Petticoat | Modcloth
Galactique and  Atomic Starburst brooches c/o The Crave Yard
The Frankie Pump in Gold Glitter  |  Madewell by J. Crew 


I have this problem where I buy 589476984576 skirts and then my top-to-skirt ratio is incredibly screwed up and I end up wearing the same handful of shirts, rinse + repeat style.  Because my default lazy day wear usually consists of a circle skirt + top, I've started to realize lately that I need to sell off some dresses and skirts and add some pieces up top to make up for my deficit.

I've had my eye on the Ella Top in Atomic Cats! Print (the exclamation point is included in the actual style name - as it very well should be any time cats come into the equation).  I own the Ella Top in a yellow bee print already (Amelia wore the blue bee print here) and love the pussy bow, the fit and the fact that it buttons all the way up the front so, on the off chance that I've actually manage to get something good going on with my hair on any given day, I don't have to pull a shirt over it.  The fact that it's now offered in 2 different prints involving cats... icing on the cake.

Outfit Details:
Hair Flower c/o  Your One Stop Pinup Shop 
Hansel Yellow Heels c/o BAIT Footwear


I absolutely love the Regina Dress in Sugar Stripe Purple but I'll admit, I ALMOST didn't get it... because once you see Dollie the Rockabilly Socialite rockin' a dress, you sort of know you're just never going to look as good in it.  On the other hand, she made it look so lovely, I knew I needed it.  I'm a sucker for a dress with a matching belt or sash and I left that this one tied in a neat little bow in the front, I also love the circular neckline, it shows the perfect about of cleavage.

I actually ran all of my wedding errands in this dress and while I was in Joann's, got asked my several ladies if I'd made it myself.  I feel like that says something about the fit + quality of the dresses that seasoned seamstresses were stopping to ask me questions like that.  The dress spawned several interesting conversations.
