So The latest film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma is coming in early 2020, set to release in the US and UK in February…
Just some housekeeping, to keep the Emma update feed complete…
- As of fall, 2018, a new historical adaptation of Emma and a remake of Clueless are planned. The Emma adaptation is set to star Anya Taylor-Joy. It’ll be directed by Autumn de Wilde with a screenplay by Eleanor Catton. The Clueless remake is coming from Paramount, producer Tracy Oliver, and writer Marquita Robinson.
- Clueless, the musical is coming to NYC in November, 2018! According to the press release: “Screenwriter and director for the film, Amy Heckerling is bringing Cher and the gang back to life with the help of The New Group, an off-Broadway theater company.” Original Clueless director Amy Heckerling says, “It’s a jukebox musical. IIt’s as if the ’90s was one year, and we’re taking songs from the ’90s and playing with the lyrics to make them tell the story. We just had a sing-through/read-through the other day, and it went really well. They’re just wonderful young actors. A lot of them are coming [to the retrospective].”
- A new Clueless musical?
- A Clueless comic book

I was recently asked to participate in a blog post all about vintage-inspired weddings, presented by Lady Vintage (AKA “Lady V London”). Since I admire Lady V’s beautiful made-in-England vintage repro dresses, I was excited to collaborate!
My tips dealt specifically with incorporating real vintage jewelry into your wedding, but there’s lots more advice from a variety of great vintage bloggers worth checking out in the piece!
Merry Christmas, all! Those of you who have enjoyed our “A Christmas Music Box” collection will be happy to know that three volumes’ worth of our monster Christmas playlist is available on YouTube. It’s not the full collection, but it’s what Jason could get up and running in time for the holidays.
2019 Update: Youtube is screwing with our videos, so if they get throttled, here’s a playlist with much of the content.
It’s presented in three parts. To listen to all three parts in order, use this “A Christmas Music Box” playlist.
Each individual part is embedded below, followed by a tracklisting for each…
So Black Friday is almost upon us! Heart of Haute is having a 20% off Black Friday sale – which goes live Thanksgiving Day (tomorrow) at noon PST and ends Black Friday night (11:59pm PST) – and a Cyber Monday sale.
The Black Friday code is, unsurprisingly, “BLACKFRIDAY” – quotation marks are mine. The images are links, so just click on through once the sale is live…
The Cyber Monday sale will be live on November 26. It’s a “buy any one item and get the second item for equal or lesser value for 50% off” sale. Use code “CYBER” – quotation marks mine.
These are affiliate links, BTW, but I wouldn’t recommend you shop anywhere that I don’t shop. Have FUN shopping all the sales this weekend and let me know what you picked up. 🙂
2017 was the year I finally replaced my old Ikea sofa with some midcentury fabulous Joybird reproduction furniture (I loved that Ikea sofa – it just wasn’t me anymore) and realized my dream of some SWEET OCEANIC ARTS LAMPS! In bittersweet news, our beloved family realtor and friend Florence Trelford passed away, leaving me the Heywood Wakefield bookcase and round coffee table that had previously belonged to my grandmother.
So I have fun tiki-themed pinup photos by Holly West Photography to share, this time from Skipper World Headquarters.
The Skippers have added a beautiful tiki lounge to their home, complete with huts, outrigger canoes, a bar, and a swanky seating area. It went perfectly with my vintage Alfred Shaheen bombax print dress, bakelite tribal necklace, and Dixiefried leopard-print Glamor swimsuit. The lovely and talented Rockwell DeVil did my makeup and hair.
More photos after the jump!
