I’m super-duper, extra-special STOKED to formally introduce the first design from 3 Snugbugs Studios inaugural line! This has been such and amazing, challenging and humbling project since we started last summer.
Let’s just jump in, shall we?
Everyone… meet the Tell Me To Stay Slipdress
This versatile slipdress is perfect as a layering piece under one of our dresses or over a flirty pair of bloomers! Add a pair of leggings in the winter with tall boots, or pare back to bare feet and some bangles for hot summer nights. Slipdresses are the heart of the 3 Snugbugs vibe. A few ruffles peeking out make run of the mill skirts extra interesting or add length to too-short dresses on chilly nights.
The Tell Me To Stay Slipdress has a scooped neck and is sleeveless, with ruching along the side seams, creating a sassy swing to the skirts and a dip in the center front and back to really show off the ruffles.

Lookbook – Wear It In Layers
The Story Behind The Name
While working on the initial concepts and sketches for the line, I had a playlist on repeat. Each piece is named after a song on that playlist. Tell Me To Stay is by one of my favorite performers from my Nashville days. Cooper is an amazing firecracker — half soul singing temptress with a bit of plaintive country and a nice does of Janis Joplin whose live performance kicks the ruffle-covered behind of anything else I’ve seen. Plus, I met Robert Plant at one of her shows… so how great is that? Tell Me To Stay is one of my favorite of her songs, great for singing along with, you know. When drifting through the house in a sassy slipdress.
So What’s A Slipdress?
The 3 Snugbugs line is built around romance, layers and expression, with the slipdress as the foundation. Slipdresses are sleeveless and a bit longer, meant to be worn under the slightly shorter 3 Snugbugs dresses. The slipdress also pairs well with a pair of our bloomers or leggings. Of course, the slipdress is wonderful on its own as a light summer frock or pair with one of our funky cardi’s or a duster for a finished look.
The 3 Snugbugs line is sized for flexibility. Silhouettes are subtly shaped, but free form. The Tell Me To Stay Slipdress has the following approximate flat measurements (i.e. measured from one side to the other while lying on a flat surface.)
- Bust 24.25″
- Hip 29″
- Back of neck to hem at center back (longest) point 48.75″
