This came across my social media feed recently, and I could see it being great for those times when you wish you could add sleeves to a dress: there’s a whole line of detachable petal sleeves called Henabee’s created by actress Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Family Guy, Bunheads).
From the site:
Founder and creator, Alex Borstein, imagined a genius way to solve her red carpet woes. Days before an event Alex would find “the perfect dress” — but so often it would be sleeveless.
Instead of featuring her arms, Borstein prefers to let her décolletage take center stage. Once upon a time, she tried tacking a bit of lace fabric into the armhole of a sleeveless dress… and voila! Problem solved. After receiving tons of compliments on the red carpet, she quickly went to work designing the first pair of Henabee’s…
Borstein, a lover of fashion, has always been inspired by vintage burlesque and she wanted Henabee’s to have the same sexy and fun feel while adding a flourish to any sleeveless dress or top.
Nice! I could see the sleeves being great for those times when you want to add a bit more modesty to your dresses and tops for whatever reason.
The pictured version (Madeline) is $68, but there are several designs and options to choose from.
