Spring Time with Hardly Dangerous Couture

Spring Blooms

Spring has to be my favorite wardrobe season as a vintage enthusiast. It allows me to wear all of my favorite pieces with out having to hide them under layers of fabric so I don't freeze to death. As the warm weather continues to roll in, my best looks are being pulled out of the darkest depths of my closet and shaken off. As a "pinup" girl, a lot of my wardrobe consists of beautiful vintage inspired dresses. Recently I was given the opportunity to style one of the most recognized new brands in the industry. 

If you are a follower of pinup and retro inspired brands the name Hardley Dangerous Couture should be familiar. With big named pinups everywhere strutting car shows and gracing their photo shoots with these designs, Hardley Dangerous is quickly making a name for itself in the pinup clothing brand market. The designers behind Moonboot Studios which is the independent design house that turns out the Hardley Dangerous brand, are Claire and Chase Marshall operating out of beautiful Wildomar California. Hence the name Hardley Dangerous Ca. Claire is a knitwear designer by trade who focused her talent and designs towards her love for classic silhouettes. Chase is the brains behind the amazing custom graphics. Together they are creating an amazing brand that retro loving girls are going gaga over.   

See below how I styled one of Hardley Dangerous Ca's most popular dresses the "Cherrybomb" Dress and see the multi optional shoulder design that can take this dress from lunch time with the girls to sexy date night in two seconds! 

I paired my beautiful Electric Turquoise Blue Cherrybomb Dress with some fun bright yellow accessories to embrace this beautiful warm seasonal weather.

Multi Way Shoulder Design 

The Hardley Dangerous Couture Cherrybomb Dress has a very versatile should strap design that can pull of both laid back casual looks as well as a sexy night out off the shoulder option. This is as easy as how you adjust the width of the shoulder. Below I give you examples of each.

Style 1
The original style of the Cherrybomb strap. Delivers more modest shoulder coverage for a feminine classy look. This look gives the dress a lot of vintage appeal. Easily worn to weddings, Church, school activities and family outings.
Style 2
When the shoulders are pulled in tighter you get more of a laid back casual tank dress that is perfect for daily outings. This provides a retro classic look that is great for lunch dates with the girls, shopping trips, park days and so much more. 
Style 3
The sexiest of the three wear options is the off the shoulder look the Cherrybomb dress provides. Due to the perfect and well done execution of this dress and the size  fittings, this option is possible and comfortable. No slipping down or worry on your dress showing more skin than you want. This is date night perfection.

I want to thank Hardley Dangerous Ca for allowing me to review one of their most popular dresses for all of my lady followers.
