Trick or Treat

Halloween is not limited to the 31st of October in my home. I've always filled my apartment with all things kooky and spooky but when September rolls around all my favourite brands start releasing their Halloween prints and collections and I can't control myself or my wallet.

For this post I'm focusing on one of my all time favourite brands Sourpuss, for cute, casual and unique pieces to wear all year round because in my world every day is Halloween. Now this post is a long one as Sourpuss Clothing are the best in the biz and have so many pieces be it clothing or accessories so get ready to have an overload of information!

Each and every piece in this review is a size XXL and I find that this specific size really fits my shape and bust perfectly. I've also included some absolutely magical props from who are my new go to prop and costume shops in Australia!

One of my stand out favourite prints this spooky season is Over The Moon which features retro cats, bats and moons. The sweetheart swing style is super flattering as it has a ruffled neckline, smocked back and a nipped in waist - complete with matching belt. The smocking makes this fabric really fit perfectly to your curves and the full skirt equals everything out to create that perfect hour glass shape.

The pockets and hem also features these supersweet ruffle details and I love how well the boned bodice hugs fits my chest and waist.

This style comes with removable and adjustable straps, so you can get that perfect fit. I'm wearing it without any of the additional straps as I've pair this style with a cardigan.

I just can't get enough of this bright orange and black print and can't wait to wear it all year round.
Prop wise this print screamed balloons to me so I've paired it with the light up jack'o'lanten balloons.   


It can't be Halloween without multiple retro kitty prints! I'm an absolute sucker for a Sourpuss skater dress and this amazing print features the sweetest little black kitten and bright orange pumpkins. Made from that tried, tested and adored super stretchy fabric that hugs your curves and is perfect for all year round wear. I'm on my 5th SP skater dress, and I think I'll be addicted to them for life.

After the success of my last Sourpuss vest, the next step obviously had to be the moto vest! With the exact same fit as their moto jackets this piece is my new go to layering accessory. Now this piece is bare when it arrives, so you can customize the piece to be 100% you. It's all in the details.

Inspired by all of the SP brooches and iron on patches I've gone for a full spooky halloween theme with this brilliant vest. Focusing on the new patches and pins that Sourpuss just recently got in stock. Traditional Halloween colours, creeps, creatures and more, all mixed in with my addiction - enamel pins.

I've added a mixture of A Clockwork Orange, horror, and creepy crawlies adorn my vest with a few of my old faves mix in. Now the only thing I have left to complete this vest is the addition of a back-patch - but what?


My clothing dreams have come true! As a full-blown raglan addict, I yelled the house down the moment I saw this little skater dress. I live in baseball/raglan style tops and now I finally own one in dress form.

Not only is it the most perfect shape and fit but the morbid little joke paired with a retro hearse has my heart a flutter. I have hearse printed dresses, bags and lots of accessories so I'm way to excited to add this into my weekly rotation of looks.

The shorter sleeve did worry me but it hits at the perfect point so it offers coverage and slims any bulk. A little birdie also told me a 3/4 sleeve will be coming out for the cooler months so I'm going to go gaga for that! 


Created from one of the softness fabrics I've ever had the pleasure of wearing the Luna Bats keyhole skater is a dream to wear. Clearly I'm a fan of skater dresses and I'm loving the variety of prints and sleeve lengths SP have available. The bat covered sleeves are super log and silk soft.

The key hole element shows a little peek of cleavage and helps the bust sit perfectly. The perfect spooky printed causal look for work or out with friends and I can't wait to style this with boots, lots of bold tights and more.

Now let's chat about this amazing wreath. I've always had a love for Halloween themed wreaths but this year I wanted to get something perfect for my morbid taste level. This boney fella is the perfect adornment for our front door and as you can see the best frame for portraits.

Such an amazing price for something so much bigger that I honestly expected!

But this piece is not limited for one use and can be the perfect addition any spooky themed party or if your'e a lover of all things skeleton related an amazing piece for your living room.  

Now it's time for a sleeveless skater. As a huge fan of Silence of the Lambs I'm forever collecting all things Death Moth related as it's such an iconic visual. Sourpuss have created both a skater and a cardigan with this black and white Death Moth print and I'm smitten. 

So simple to style, effortless to wear and the perfect little summer dress! I've pair this style with my purple Yemak sweater and love how well the print teams up with a bright pop of colour. What I love most about all of these pieces is how versatile they are for all year round wear. Wear them with flats in the summer or layer with tights, cardigans and boots in the winter.

What's this another prop? Things are getting a little dark and spooky and lets face it rather silly! I just had to include the light up Larva Head prop in this shoot. How can you not right? Those red glowing eyes, spooky spiders and that larva pod. Just imagine the critter that caught this fella? Too late now I've run off with it! 


Now to end this amazing creepy forest collection of images we have the Lydia dress. I've been eyeing off the Lydia in all of the various colour variants for a while now but I was never sure if it would work with my body shape. But as you can see the result once I wiggle my way into this piece is a big YES it works!!

This dress screams summer gothic chic with it's flowing layers of soft fabric, 40's inspired sleeve and contrasting buttons, waist band and spider web collar. The bold white accents make this piece pop and I love the softness and stretch the fabric offers, giving me the ability to button up or down without too much stress.

Now you might need a friend to help you get into this dress as it has a side zip which helps create that cinched in waist. This piece is AMAZING, and I've now added the red and black stripe and pink to my lust list. Now let's see if any more prints or colour ways will be released in the futures. 

Now it can't be a full spooky themed shoot without a set of amazing custom nails and these stunning Trick or Treat claws were created by Candi Glam Nails! The perfect mixture of retro Halloween with horror! 

Due to my work I can't get away with my most loved super long claws but with creators like Candi Glam in the market I can get stunning custom made pieces that pair perfectly with all of my themed shoots and can be worn as often as I like! With more options to chop and change your styles and themes I love this so much more than just having acrylics. 

Each set is sent with a file, buffer, swab (to clean the base of your nail) slick on taps and all the important instructions. I also got my paws on their amazing cuticle oil, and I'm absolutely in LOVE! The smell of must never leaves my hands and I'm forever loving that scent. 

In total I ordered 3 amazing and equally unique sets of Halloween themed nails from Candi Glam Nails so be sure to check back for my images and on my Instagram for videos! You never know you might find an in theme spooky woodlands video on there as well.
