This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Haute Halter

April, 24, 2015

For those who saw my step-by-step dance tutorial to Meghan Trainor’s Dear Future Husband, you know that I chose a style for it similar to her 50’s inspired look.

Haute Halter A

While scanning magazines to get my fashion fix, I’ve noticed that the singer was on the cusp of a spring trend. The 50’s-esque dress with a fitted waist and a flared skirt is everywhere. Here are examples of the design with halter tops. They range in price from bargain basement to top floor.

Haute Halter B

Bebe is showing off a fit-and-flare halter for under $200, while ModCloth has a polka dot quite similar to mine, for about $100 less. And Halston Heritage features a couture version, with a ruffled skirt, that rings up at $425—but it’s style love at first sight.
