The popularity of retro clothing has brought blurred or stretched definitions to retro-inspired fashion, but Doll Deluxe is the real deal. If you are drawn to garments associated with the 40s, 50s and 60s, you will love these well-made and beautiful articles of clothing offered by this small label.
The wiggle dress is the star of the Doll Deluxe collection. Each wiggle dress features the classic cut with a narrower width at the hem rather than the hips, allowing you to sexily “wiggle” when you walk. The label also has a selection of swing dresses, and they are just as impressive. In combination with flattering necklines, such as a halter or sweetheart shape, Doll Deluxe ensures your curves are hugged in only the most favorable way.

Doll Deluxe also offers a sweet collection of separates. From pencil skirts, sailor pants and swing skirts to peasant blouses, basic boatneck tops and pussy bow blouses, the possibilities to mix and match are endless. Whether you just started a pinup-inspired wardrobe or you are on the constant prowl for new retro-style additions, the clothing under this brand is versatile and easy to pair for both casual or dressier situations.

The color palette and retro-inspired prints of Doll Deluxe clothing are simple and are easily associated with vintage fashion. Gingham, polka dots and sailor stripes make a frequent appearance, but you will also find flirty designs, like cherry and hula prints.

The placement of detailing, like embroidered tattoo-style swallows, corset-like piping and peekaboo tulle, is deliberate and quite successful. These details not only enhance the garment but complement a woman’s body and personality, too.

Doll Deluxe is a great example of simple yet glamorous pinup-style clothing. Every rockabella, fiery vixen and burlesque girl should give the label a look, because most of the brand’s pieces translate well from day to night. If you live in Australia, the brand gives you the option to put items on lay by, but the website also has some great sales offered to their worldwide consumers.

This vintage-inspired retro clothing line and shop founded by mom-and-sprout duo Teresa Becker and her darling daughter Amanda Marie has scads of simply adorable dresses, skirts and tops in fun fabrics that fit and flatter like a fantasy.
Started as a home-based business in 2005, Teresa and Amanda’s labor of love grew and grew and by 2009 that had quadrupled their warehouse space. “Made with love and no regrets”, as their slogan says they manufacture all their clothing in the United States and are committed to creating local jobs.
What makes Heart of Haute clothing such a success? High-quality fabrics and excellent design and craftsmanship at an affordable price go a long way but what really takes their apparel one step further are their playful and delightful interpretations of classic pin up styles.
Their Mary Mary Gypsy Skirt has a little extra, made from Our Lady of Guadalupe fabric with a wide tie band. Their A-line Astro Dress in “Gizmo” is flatteringly unique and their swing-skirted, empire waist, round-collared Beverly Dress comes in solids, patterns and gingham but my favorite is the “Dixie”.
Heart of Haute will ship anywhere directly from their site but be sure to allow 7 to 10 business days for your order to be completed and shipped because Amanda and Teresa keep low inventory and may have to create your clothing just for you! Returns and exchanges are A-OK within 3 weeks of the shipping date as long as they are unworn and have their tags attached and you can pay with PayPal, American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
And where else can one find the charming clothing that these lovely ladies design? International jet setters can visit stores all over the globe that carry their apparel like Cats Like Us in New York, My Baby Jo in California and Gasoline Alley in New Mexico, Grease Monkey in Canada, Gutterpunk in Australia, Miss Mole in Germany, Unique Cheesecakes in Iceland and Rustic Frontier in Japan. Homebody cheesecakes can find Heart of Haute on the web through online retailers like The Atomic Boutique, Baby Girl Boutique and Top Vintage.
Blossoming bombshells, glamour gals and modern day sex kittens can buy completely original, flirtatious, 1950s style apparel spiced up with a hint of burlesque and sewn with the highest quality fabrics by professional seamstresses at their online shop while eagerly awaiting their presence in brick-and-mortar stores around the globe.
From their distinctive “Hello Buoys” nautical-themed wiggle dress and pencil skirt line for vintage sailorettes to their “Choose Your Own Gidget Playsuit” outfit in custom fabrics of your choosing, Powderpuff Boutique clothing is classic, timeless and distinctive with a bright and cartoon-y style perfect for pin up designs. Black and white or red and white polka dots, skin-tight tiger print skirts and nautical stripes and buttons, all such a staple in mid-century women’s clothing styles, find a refreshingly new yet authentic presentation in all Powderpuff Boutique clothes.
Cute and fitted sailor shorts, curve-enhancing halter tops, boleros, faux stoles, and skin-tight pencil skirts like the “Burlesque Bump” in black organza ruffles on the derriere and a big red bow on top will draw everyone’s eyes to the retro ladies wearing them and are tops in comfort and construction.
Their garments cost from $50.00 to over $200 in Australian dollars, a reasonable price purview for original designs and high quality fabric and construction. For international shoppers they provide a link on their site to a currency converter to help customers determine if they are within budget lines.
Currently, Powderpuff Boutique is exclusively available from their online shop of the same name, although further expanded distribution is in the works as evidenced by their up-and-coming stockist’s page. Their sizing chart is in centimeters with inches coming soon, and custom sizing and minor alterations are available upon request for a slight additional fee.
Exchanges shipped at the buyer’s expense within 10 business days of the item leaving their Australian HQ are available; returns, however, are not accepted. Shipping costs vary by destination location and Powderpuff Boutique accepts most major credit cards and PayPal and aims to ship orders within 10 days, both within Australia and internationally.
