Heart My Closet Dress Review

Following on from our previous review, today we are looking at three more garments from one of my favourite vintage reproduction stores, Heart My Closet. At this point I have quite the collection of dresses from Heart My Closet hanging in my closet. It still is a company I will continue to support and shop with as their items are beyond wonderful and very well made, not to mention their customer service and ethics are top notch. Each dress is expertly crafted and fully lined in high quality materials and they are very luxurious. The best thing about the dresses that Heart My Closet make is the fit and the plethora of different styles. For women who dress in the vintage style, once we find a company or brand who has mastered how to make clothes for a vintage loving body, we seldom stray. All the dresses I own by Heart My Closet are so well tailored to my body shape that they feel like a second skin and it really boosts my confidence. I get stopped all the time and asked where my dress is from and I am always so excited when their eyes light up saying these dresses are all custom made.

Let’s start with this coat; it is a vintage day dream with a cherry on top! Firstly, this colour is divine and it makes me super excite for the cooler weather and not feeling like dark colours are my only option. I very much prefer to wear bright colours in winter so this jacket will be perfect for such days and if you live in a cooler climate, this might be a perfect summer coat (as an Aussie that concept still baffles me). Let’s now look at the sleeves; they are three quarter sleeves that flare out at the ends and have cute button detailing down the side. I absolutely love these sleeves as they are adorable, very functional and don’t make me feel restricted in my movements plus, I get to show off my gloves.

It would be silly not to mention the best feature of this coat; the lining. It is absolute perfection. I’m a sucker for a polka dot moment and when I saw the lining of this coat I got so excited as I knew it would be a perfect twirl moment. This coat is wonderful for anyone interested in a more 60’s style but it can certainly be used as a statement piece. As the coat is open at the front, it allows you to play with colour in your outfit underneath. I opted to pair it with the Mrs Maisel pink wiggle dress from our last review, a vintage hat and gloves and my white Honiara heels.

The next dress is my absolute inspiration for the coming cooler months. Last year I wanted to explore more Dark Academia, darker cottage core and a bit of dapper vintage style and I never really got a chance but this dress is the perfect colour to start that ball rolling again. Made out of a delicious creamy brown cotton, this dress has incredible bodice detailing including decorative buttons, a bow, matching belt and front shoulder details. I think the arm sleeve length is perfect for autumnal months and this dress would be perfect with a cardigan on top. As always, the skirt length is perfect as it’s just below the knee so you can wear a petticoat for extra warmth.

This dress really makes me want to sip tea from an antique cup as I browse books and look at rain outside my future homes bay window. It’s got a beautiful autumnal sense of romanticism about it which I think is perfect. I paired this dress with rose cameo earrings from poporcelaine and cream gloves. I wore a pair of brown heels from Miss L Fire to complete the look.

Probably my favourite dress from this entire set, the Diana dress is a replica of a famous vintage dress from the 50’s. The dress is made from cream fabric, with a green neck binding and a hand painted green bird on the top bodice side front. I cannot believe this dress is hand painted as personally I would have been too panicked to paint anything on a bird. I’ve had my eye on this dress for quite some time and I’m beyond chuffed to finally have her handing in my wardrobe. The dress comes with a matching green belt so it was obvious to pair it with all green accessories.

I’m a huge fan of the sleeves on the dress as for some reason, I’ve been really drawn to things with sleeves over the past year. The dress is super flattering and I’m so happy it comes with a matching belt too. To complete the dress I paired it with a green velvet hat from Belbeina Lee, rose cameo earrings from Poporcelaine, green vintage gloves and green shoes.

All these items were an absolute treat and I couldn’t be happier with them. I am so grateful to Heart My Closet for once again spoiling me with such wonderful items that I will certainly treasure for seasons to come. As the weather will eventually start to cool down, I am very keen to start enjoying my coats and dresses with longer sleeves a bit more. If you haven’t had a chance to check out our last review of some Mrs Maisel inspired items, you can find that link here. I also have a few more Heart My Closet reviews here, here, here and here incase you want to see more of their stunning clothing.

As always, Heart My Closet is completely customisable to suit your style and taste. If you see these items but want them in a different colour or size, that is absolutely do-able. I like to use this feature whilst shopping to fill gaps in my wardrobes colour story when I suddenly realise that I don’t have many orange dresses or desperately need something in chartreuse to match my new gloves. I am hoping to maybe have some floral or plaid fabric options available in the future but honestly, beggars can’t be choosers and we already have so much choice with this company.

Shooting this review and last weeks (yeah I know I had a week break in between but I really needed it), was a lot of fun. It was scheduled to be another day over 40 degrees celcius so to beat the heat we started shooting at 5am. My photographer Alex as fun to work with as we’ve known each other for years so most of the time we just goofed off. Check out my reel of the day for some extra behind the scenes footage and a sneak peak to what it’s like on a very busy shoot.
