I feel like it's been far too long between Heart of Haute posts! This obviously had to be rectified and many stunning items had to be ordered and shot in country Victoria with my local favorite girl Katherine Davis.
Monte Carlo Dress - Regency Smoke - $ 160.00
This is my 3rd Monte Carlo Dress and it won't be my last. As you may be able to tell I have a big crush on this style and the stunning fit! With button up dresses you can have way too many fit and fabric pull issues but in the Monte Carlo those issues are a thing of the past. I have this style in Teal and Red but when I saw the Regency Smoke printed fabric online I knew I had to make it mine!
There is something so regal and stunning about this divine print and the fabric molds perfectly to my shape. I'm wearing this style as I have my other two versions in a size XL and I find this fabric a lot more sturdy and a little thicker than the previous two. I think this helps to secure the bust and creates a more firm fit. The arms on this style fit so firmly they make you feel like you've been pumping iron in the gym and that's what I love about a properly designed 3/4 length sleeve.
This is one of those styles that every woman needs in her collection and in as many colours as humanly possible. They need no over accessorizing or extras, just a stunning pair of pumps and a clutch bag and you're done! I really can't get over how brilliantly crafted the Monte Carlo dress is and it's a style I'll keep coming back to as long as Heart of Haute still continue to make it. I have dreams of owning this style in emerald green and plain black, then and only then will my collection be complete.
Please let me introduce you to one of the sexiest suits I've ever owned. The Diva suit is a new style from HOH, offering an affordable two piece suit for office or play. Brilliantly designed to accentuate curves, nip you in at the waist and offer that little bit of sex appeal to your wardrobe. Made from a super stretchy soft Poly/Rayon/Spandex Ponte Verona mix these two pieces are a dream to wear both to the office and out for drinks.
I'm wearing both pieces in the XL and they are a perfectly fitted to my curves. The jacket has a full length sleeve which is roomy enough to later a button up blouse beneath and a button up front. My favourite feature is the peplum hem which makes your waist look tiny! The jacket is such a strong piece and I'm already planning extra outfits to wear it with such as high waisted jeans and disco pants!
Sweet Sweater in Black - $ 40.00
Ella Top in Black/White Stripe - $52.00 (sold out but more colours available online)
Haute Circle Skirt in Black GoGetter - $ 70.00
Now if you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed the Ella Top pop up recently and many other times over the years in different prints or colour options. If you are a busty lass you know the pain that comes along with wearing button ups and how they pop or pull right at your bustline. Heart of Haute's button up tops are the only high necks I feel both comfortable and good in! They don't make me look more top heavy and actually button up over my bustline!
This time I opted for a 1XLapposed to an XL as I wanted there to be absolutely no chance of button popping as my bust has gone up a few inches in the last year. The 1XL fits great at the bust but is much roomier at the waist than the XL, this was a feature I loved in the XL. Damn my hourglass shape!! While I usually wear XL's in HOH I think for this style when tucked into full skirts I'll stick with the larger size. It you are looking to wear yours with a more fitted bottom I'd suggest going with the XL as there is a little bulk under the waist line for me when I wear this shirt due to the looseness under my bust.
Now can we focus on this phenomenal skirt!! The Haute Circle Skirt is my new go to black swing style skirt and it's a dream to wear. The XL fits me perfectly at the waist and drapes perfectly over my hips. I'm wearing this style without a petticoat because it really does not need one. I've been wearing this to work, out for lunch and any occasion I can find. It pairs perfectly with blouses, peasant tops, button ups and knits and even band tees. I adore how absolutely versatile it is.
Now this outfit would not have been complete without my second skin the Sweet Sweater and I think the combination of that with the Ella top has to be my all time favourite look. I'm wearing it but the red version as I type! For both black looks I've worn my red hot Bordello Teeze Mary Jane Pump to add an extra pop of colour. My wardrobe will eternally grateful when I get every colour of this sweater as I live it in! Next on my list has to be the blue and berry shades!
