Dressed Up as Life was the second studio album released by the Australian alternative rock band Sick Puppies, but was their first album to be released in the United States. It was released on 3 April 2007 and peaked at #181 on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart. The song "All the Same" is the theme for Juan Mann's Free Hugs Campaign video on YouTube, although it also has its own video. Deutsch Advertising creatives Michael Leibowitz and Eric Rojas oversaw the CD design for Dressed Up as Life.

The album has sold over 150,000 copies in the United States to date. This is also the band's first studio album with drummer Mark Goodwin, who replaced Chris Mileski in 2003.
