A few weeks back the brilliant Michael Alesich and I roamed around my neighbourhood and snapped some shots of my stand-out favourite items from Sourpuss! It's fair to say that I have a life long addiction to this brilliant company and I adore their web store (I can get lost on there for a few hours) and each and every season I'm blown away by their new styles and designs.
The items in this set of images are from 2014 but you can still purchase these both via the web store of from any of the other online shops I've lined below each image. In the next few months I'll be able to shoot some new stock from the 2015 Spring/Fall season and update you with all the exciting new designs.
SOURPUSS DOLLY TOP LUCKY HORSESHOE - $36.00
Being a huge fan of the western dresses in this stretch flannel fabric for the last 2 seasons it was a must to have the shirt version in my collection. The Dolly top is a super stretchy and soft western style button up in a bold black and white gingham with red buttons, piping and horse shoe motif's. The soft and very stretchy fabric makes this shirt perfect for larger busts and can be worn tied up or down. I'm wearing each item in this post in a size XL and with this style I find the fit to be perfect and very much like the western dresses.
If you ever have issues with button popping or gaping this is the shirt for you. I'm a 34GG and this sits perfectly over my bust.
This is definitely not a summer fabric though as it's thick and very warm so I suggest pairing it with jeans and skirts in the cooler months. I've been wearing this with skinny jeans and cowboy boots on cooler days and my favourite leather jacket. It's so comfy yet so cute and I hope that, like the dress version, it comes out in different colours and motifs eventually. Usually I'd be a little worried about so much print on my upper body but when worn tied up or tucked in I find this style rather flattering.
SOURPUSS OMNI VARSITY JACKET (SOLD OUT! Check Dollskill link) - $54.00
American Apparel Easy Jean - $125.00
After falling hard for my Anchors Aweigh varsity jacket last year it was obvious that any new style or print was needed in my life. The Omni was a new print for 2014 and features a a different colour way, white sleeve and skull print on the back. Sold out via Sourpuss but you can pick one up at Dollskill here for $48.50! Lined with the softest of fabric this baby will keep you cosy all winter.
I'm such a sucker for the Varsity style and love how it compliments my curves. Being an hourglass I usually show my chest and never cover up but when it cools down and you have to dress for a chilly Melbourne winter a zip up high neck is needed! I adore the close fit and how the thick fabric hugs my curves without adding bulk. This winter I'll be wearing this one to death!
SOURPUSS SPUTNIK BELLA CARDIGAN - $35.00
This is my first Bella cardigan from Sourpuss but I've been eyeing them off for a while. I'm usually a full length or 3/4 sleeve kind of girl but when I saw this atomic style ruffled number I needed it in my life. I love the atomic sputnik embroided motifs on each side of the chest and the ruffles with the edition of lace. The sleeve I'm still a bit iffy about as I think it's a little unflattering on my upper arms but I do love every other detail.
With the XL I found the buttons a little too pulled for my liking so if you have a bust bigger than 40 inches then I'd suggest moving up to a XXL. I paired the Bella with the amazing Bad Girl Scarf in the Switchblades print. I'm loving the selection of prints available in these scarves and they are great for neckerchiefs or hair scarves. Every print and colour way will be in my collection eventually, I need more options for every day wear and for photo shoots.
The Vivienne dress is a fantastic little version of the VavaVoom dress with 3/4 sleeves! Now I've searched high and low for this style as it's sold out and can't find the gray print online anymore. After a few searches I've found the Navy Dot and the Cherry print so if you like the style and fit these might be perfect for you. I found the fit in an XL perfect for my bust, arms and waits but I'd not be game to size down. So if you are a little smaller than me the Large will be perfect.
If this style is restocked at Sourpuss I will update this post asap!
SOURPUSS FANCYPANTS COAT BLACK - $65.00
(SOLD OUT AT SP! Check links bellow for stockists)
I'm in love with Fancypants - now that's something I never though I'd write at any point in my blogging career! But it's true and the Fancypants coat is one of the best style winter coats I've worn in years. A new spin on the plain black coat with striking white piping and buttons. The white features draw you eye to the sleek lines of this coat and works wonderfully on my curves. Made from a stretch rayon/spandex fabric the coat stretches to fit your curves and hug your body. The stretch also gives you the option to layer cardigans and jumpers beneath and the room arm's offer lots of space for long sleeved items.
We shot this in black and white to show just how stunning the coat is on its own but in reality it's still as bold and strong. The coat is also lined with a blood red silky fabric which makes it just as appealing button up or worn undone.
Now don't fear just because this style is sold out online via the Sourpuss website. Bellow I've linked all the places you can purchase this wonderful coat and the other colour ways of leopard and red.
Black Fancypants Coat (UK) - £44.99
Black Fancypants Coat (Unique Vintage) - $90.00
Leopard Fancypants Coat - $65.00
Red Fancypants Coat - $81.00
What do you pair with a super stylish black and white coat? The Deadly Deville purse in houndstooth of course! I already own the black and beige version of this purse and use all week as it's the perfect size for everything I need to get me through a work day. My last two handbags have been Sourpuss and I find they are brilliant accessories as well as being solid and long lasting.
The Deadly Deville in Hounds tooth is stunning and stylish and has a very old world vibe about it. The 60's inspired shape and print gives a sleek and classy feel to this purse and the size is brilliant. Measuring 18" X 10" X 5" this purse can accommodate all of your essential items for work or play. The larger size of this bag means you can also use this as an overnight travel bag! I've used this to store outfits for a night away and it's really amazing just how much fits inside.

Many thanks to the my brilliant friend and photographer Michael Alesich for taking these images. I think we have mastered the art of bag/shoe and leg photography on this post. I can't wait to shoot the next set with you!
