Sourpuss Clothing is a brand that I’ve been aware of for years, but never actually taken a good look at. On the more ‘alternative’ end of vintage inspired fashion, I was more familiar with them for their punky stuff, and didn’t really realise there might be things I’d like the look of too.
I’m really glad I did now though, as it’s taught me one very important fact: Sourpuss make some of the best frame bags out there. I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this recently, so for anyone who doesn’t know: I am a framebagaholic. Some day I’ll show you my collection I’m sure – I just can’t get enough of them. I won’t stop until I have one in every colour! But it wasn’t until I looked at Sourpuss’s website that I realised one crucial thing: I have never come across a good-sized, leopard print frame bag. Until now!
I’ll be honest, this whole look started with my love for this bag. It was a fun challenge to come up with an outfit to wear with it – but admittedly an easy one as, let’s remember, readers, leopard print can totally be a neutral. It can also be an outfit detail too if you want, so a leopard print bag is definitely a wardrobe staple in my eyes. This one is a decent size, I love the strap length (I can squeeze it onto my shoulder) and it’s wonderfully lightweight. And furry!
This outfit started office-y, then became more weekend thanks to a trusty beret. You totally could wear this to work though. This blouse immediately joined my Shirt Hall of Fame for being that one in a million that actually fits me and doesn’t gap or pop open at the bust (I’m not even that gifted in this area, but I’ve still managed my fair share of embarrassing chest-related incidents nonetheless). Also, the scallop details and puff cap sleeves are too cute and make a boring white shirt a bit more exciting. The skirt is a great basic too – it’s a bit too big in the waist for me but nothing a belt couldn’t fit. I like that it’s not skin tight, it’s far more flattering than some other repro wiggles I have. I can see it going into frequent rotation! Although it is that material that creases as soon as you look at it – so excuse the wrinkles.
Together these items look great together, but on their own they’re awesome staples too. And if you like a frame bag as much as I do, be prepared to be blown away by the many beauties on the Sourpuss website! I want them ALL.

I haven’t moaned about the weather much lately, but rest assured folks, it’s still terrible. This day it was so cold and windy I had a bit of a blogger diva strop, so kudos to B for enduring that tantrum. But come ON weather, it’s nearly MAY and it’s still exactly the same as winter was around here. I just want to take outfit photos without risk of pneumonia, is that too much to ask?!
