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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
