Every morning, when I go to get dressed, I peer into my closet and see handfuls of beautiful clothes- dresses from Pinup Girl Clothing and a few from Stop Starring, big circle skirts and sassy wiggle dresses…most way too nice to wear to work, where the potential to get them dirty is very high. Every morning, I say to myself “I need some casual clothes!”. I hate wearing jeans and now that winter is over I am so done with leggings… I am really in the market for cute, summer dresses. Cue Sourpuss!
Sourpuss makes some pretty darn adorable dresses, with a price point I can get on board with. While they are cute and flirty, they are also very wearable.
The first of four dresses I want to share with you, is my favorite of the bunch.The pillaging puppies design in the Rizo cut is the die for cute!
It features pirate boston terriers, wearing pirate hats, mustaches, and peg legs. The cut is very girl, with an attached bow on the back of the black band and thin black trim around the hem, collar, and sleeves.
I am wearing a medium in this cut and it fits perfectly. The material has a little stretch and one of those tricky invisible side zipper. My measurements for comparison are:
This dress hits me mid thigh, which makes it great for summer or to pair with thick tights or leggings when winter returns. I am wearing mine with a black slip, just because I like to. On this particular evening I was headed out to see Lady Gaga and wanted to be comfortable so I wore my doc martin biker boots and tall black socks. Otherwise, I usually wear it with a cute pair of shoes.
On a side note, Lady Gaga was pretty awesome. She had 6 costume changes, an amazing stage, and of course, fantastic stage presence. She seemed pretty genuine and over all, it was a great show. I’m not a die hard fan or anything, but I figured it would be a good show to see, and she did not disappoint.
Like I mentioned, I have three other Sourpuss dresses I recently purchased, all from Rowena, in Edmonton. Their sister online store, RetroGlam.com carries Sourpuss, including all the cute dresses I will be reviewing.
Some of you may already know this but… I own a boston terrier, so it was destiny that led me to this dress. How could I not get it?! I think its too funny when I wear it around her… I just need to get her a pirate hat and eye patch and she will be good to go!
