Dressing up

Heidi Pusateri of South Fayette Township is the designer and owner of Miss PRISS Kids, launched in the spring of 2010 as a result of her desire to create items for her two young daughters.

With a degree in communications from Duquesne University and a full-time job as a pharmaceutical sales representative, she designs all the vintage-inspired clothes and cuts out the items that then go to seamstresses who sew the pieces together at their homes.

Her sister, Holly Zarabi, is a contributor to the business, having been trained by their grandmother, 87, who continues as a seamstress with items she creates and sells in a shop near Latrobe.

“There is a very small window of time when we moms can really enjoy dressing our little princesses and this is why my clothes are trendy, girlie and age-appropriate,” Pusateri said.

She recently opened a studio space on the second floor above Clarkin Chiropractic, 112 Union Ave., Oakdale, at the edge of South Fayette Township, where she has begun opening on Sundays only for trunk shows.

Her spring collection pieces have been released on Facebook for pre-order and are also available at and at Princepessa Boutique, the Quail Acres Shoppes, in Canonsburg near the Meadows Racetrack. The business will have vendor space at the Beaver Garrison Days in June and at the Sewickley Harvest Festival in September. Call 412-496-2959 or visit her page at for further information.

Fit-friendly workplace

The American Heart Association has designated St. Clair Hospital as a Fit-Friendly Worksite.

Initiatives from the hospital's employee wellness committee that earned the gold level include adopting indoor and outdoor walking routes, competitive races and challenges, discounted healthy meal options in the hospital cafeteria, educational classes and on-site fitness classes.
