The 12 Days of Dresses brought to you by Sourpuss Clothing


With the holiday party season fast approaching, it's time to make sure you're fully stocked with amazing things to wear to each event! So I bring you: The 12 Days of Dresses!


On the first day of dresses, we bring you the Sourpuss Sputnik Lizzie dress! It's perfect for office holiday parties, daytime events, or something to wear to work when you're feeling festive. It is fully lined and has pockets, so not only is it cute it's completely functional too!

This amazing dress has a huuuge circle skirt that's absolutely amazing to twirl around in, and the gingham will pair perfectly with your favorite bolero or cropped cardigan. Add a little sparkly brooch and you're all set!


On the third day of dresses, release your inner kitten with the Sourpuss Leopard Lyla dress. Seriously, you can't go wrong with a black dress and leopard print - it's impossible! It is made from a stretchy rayon/spandex blend and has a soft, flocked leopard overlay. The peekaboo neckline along with a plunging back (but not too plunging!) and little capped sleeves all add up to one hell of a dress.

On the fourth day of dresses, show off some understated elegance in the perfect LBD. We love the Mary Lou wiggle dress from Steady - the fabric is super stretchy and the polka dot mesh bodice gives it a little detail without going overboard. It's great if you're going to a holiday happy hour or a fancy dinner party - this dress is completely versatile! Dress it up with some sparkly accessories (yes, I like sparkle) or keep it a little more simple with some monochromatic baubles (red would be perfect) and top it all off with some sweet little pumps.

On the fifth day of dresses, when you're getting a little burned out from so much in your face holiday-ness, this Buzz Kill dress from Iron Fist will revive you. The velvet peter pan collar and bows at the waist add just the right amount of flair without overdoing it, and the thorny rose and butterfly print look festive without being so on-the-nose Christmas. I would personally wear my fishnets and Docs with this dress (because I'm cool like that) but you could wear heels too and be just as happy.

On the sixth day of dresses, you'll look and feel like a vintage classy lady in the Sourpuss Manhattan Dance Card dress! Made from stretchy taffeta with a sweet little swiss dot overlay, this retro silhouette will really give 'em the old razzle-dazzle! This whole look is completed with a soft sparkly mesh ruffle at the hem, a keyhole neckline and a contrast button and waistband. Take your pick of one of our handbags and you've got a knockout look!


On the seventh day of dresses, put a little sparkle in your step in our new Sourpuss Sputnik Lyla dress - the best combination of twinkles and retro sputniks you'll ever see! Similar to our Leopard Lyla dress, this version is made from a stretch nylon blend and has an invisible side zipper. The best part about it though is the awesome sparkly mesh at the bodice and at the hem (I know, again with the sparkles). Totally appropriate for a fancy holiday get together or a night out on the town.

On the eigth day of dresses, channel your inner Bettie in this amazing Dark Leopard Heidi dress from Pinup Couture. If you've never owned one of their amazing-quality, made in the USA dresses then this is a good time to start! The fit is great and there's ample boobie room for all us busty gals, plus it comes with a cute removable belt that helps tie everything together. I personally love red with leopard so I'd pair it with some red kitten heels and some red earrings and voila! All done!


On the ninth day of dresses, bring on the 40's glamour with this beautiful Mia dress from Hell Bunny!! Along with the amazing fit and silhouette that Hell Bunny is known for, this dress features a crocheted peter pan collar and an empire waist seam - but still fitted through the waist - totally 40's. You had better order yours quick because I'm definitely going to be snapping one of these up, stat. It's perfect for a night of dancing - pair it with some heeled oxfords and cuban-heeled stockings and you're dynamite!

On the tenth day of dresses, unleash your inner bombshell in the Sourpuss Shimmer Houndstooth Joanie dress! (I dare you to say that five times fast.) This stretchy yet structured dress will cling in all the right places and hide all the others (not that you've got anything to hide, because you're perfect just like me, ahem.) The best part about this dress (besides the fit) is the combination of matte and shiny in the houndstooth fabric. It looks like something that a Stark Trek character would wear to a gala - in the best way possible!

On the eleventh day of Christmas, you're going to want to wear something to keep the Krampus at bay if you've been naughty - the Sourpuss Krampus Fair Isle sweater dress is the perfect thing! It's so warm and cozy, and the original design that's knitted in to the dress is killer! You can distract anyone with cuteness, the Krampus won't stand a chance!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, for the grand finale we choose for you the Sourpuss Christmas Kitties Lizzie dress! This happens to be my favorite of the bunch (I saved the best for last) and how could you not fall in love with this retro-esque kitten print?? Unless you're the grinch (before his heart grew) then I promise you will absolutely adore this dress. Like the other Lizzie dresses, this also has pockets, full lining, and an adorable petern pan collar and bow at the waist. This one is just holiday perfection!!!
