One of my goals for Pin Up Persuasion this year is to bring more variety with reviews and features. It is always very exciting to showcase diverse brands and learn along the way with my readers. Now, what do we all hope to achieve in a pinup wardrobe? That would be to stretch our hard earned dollars farther by creating fun mix and match outfits by utilizing versatile separates and accessories! Basics like cardigans and handbags are both fabulous ways to maximizing various looks. Luckily for us, Sourpuss Clothing is an incredible brand that brings a funky pinup twist to our every day basics.
Seeing as this was my first experience with Sourpuss Clothing when it comes to sizing and fit, I relied on their measurement charts to determine what size to choose in the Sputnik Bella Cardigan. I fell in between their Small and Medium but opted to not size up since most knits are quite forgiving with stretch allowances. My instincts were right, the Small fit wonderfully and there was no pulling or gaping on the buttons despite being 2″ larger in the bust. The Sputnik Bella Cardigan is much more darling in person, I absolutely fell in love with the blue jeweled buttons and soft lace trim. Both in combination with the Sputnik embroidery make this cropped cardigan a true delight. The knit is made from a very soft viscose yarn, which will keep you cozy warm as well.
By adding wardrobe staples like a cropped black cardigan with a little twist, you will find they finish of your pinup ensembles wonderfully. The Sputnik Bella Cardigan is a fabulous stand alone separate as well as complimentary to many pieces in your closet. In the cold winter months, I tend to utilize these cute cardigans to add a little sparkle to my work attire as boring black pants just don’t do it for me. As soon as the brutal cold is gone, I will happily pair this lovely cardigan with tons of pretty skirts and dresses like the PUG Jenny in Harlequin print.
Now, let’s discuss the ultimate woman’s accessory…HANDBAGS! Yes, I too am obsessed with them and absolutely adore vintage inspired styles as they are truly a focal point to any look. When I came across the Sourpuss Houndstooth Deadly Deville Purse, I knew it would be a winner for it’s classic style and print. Little did I realize, the purse is rather large (18″x 10″x 5″) for my taste and feel it would make a fabulous overnight bag instead. It’s large enough to carry your tablet or laptop in addition to all your every day pinup essentials. The vinyl houndstooth exterior is quite durable and washable, featuring a rich faux red satin interior. This lovely print is also available in a barrel purse if you are seeking a smaller every day type handbag like myself.
Sourpuss Clothing knows that the inner pinup in all of us needs a little pizazz to our wardrobe staples, we are not known to be the boring wallflowers types are we? By mixing fun separates with classic accessories, we can always find the right balance.
