Shabby Apple Review & Giveaway


I recently had the great pleasure of working with a wonderful company that many of you know for their wonderful vintage style dresses. Shabby Apple is a wonderful company who has what I feel is the best selection on vintage inspired dresses. I also love the charity work that Shabby Apple does in the world to help women. I am a big fan of supporting companies that does charity work.

Shabby Apple loves to help women dress but they are also committed to helping women live as well. Thus they are supporting the fight against global poverty by partnering with Accion-a non-profit organization with the mission of giving people the financial tools they need to work their way out of poverty. Shabby Apple donates 5% of its net income to support work with 62 microfinance institutions in 31 countries throughout the world.

I got the pleasure of reviewing the Nothin' Like A Dame dress and it has quickly become my favorite dress. I have always been a big fan of the older style dresses so I have always loved looking at the dresses on Shabby Apple's website. I wore this dress to church on Sunday and got many compliments on it and I plan on wearing this weekend while Jake and I are gone on our couple's getaway.

 
I forgot to get a picture of me in the dress on Sunday so I will get one Thursday and post it so you all can see how beautiful this dress is. The color of this dress is looks like it would be a fuschia color but it is more red and very vibrant. I was worried that the dress would not fit me right because of my measurements but it fit perfectly. I did have some extra fabric in the bust area though because I am very small on the top but wearing a padded bra seemed to help.
 
The dress is very comfortable and flattering and I love that it falls to just below the knee. I love the longer style dresses especially for church they seem much more appropriate. I love the simple shift it takes on a new form with a lei of tucks, folds and petal-like ruffles along the rounded scoop neck. The princess seams and careful tailoring keep the shape classic and form-flattering, and the cap sleeves and deep vermillion color make this dress perfect for the summer. This dress is also machine washable on the delicate setting and then just hand dry so no worrying about running to the dry cleaners to get your dress cleaned.
 
How would you like to own one of the beautiful dresses that Shabby Apple offers? Well then here is your chance simply just enter on the form below.
