Shabby Apple Giveaway

What do fantastic dresses for women have to do with kids crafts and early learning? Nothing.

I decided to go forward with this review and giveaway because after doing my reader survey I found that almost all of you are moms, almost all of you are right around my age ( early 30s) and if these dresses make me squeal with delight and dream of nights out I bet they’d make you excited too! So I am posting on a Saturday , when I don’t usually post as to not take anything away from our regular learning but as a bonus .

Shabby Apple dresses weren’t new to me when I was contacted with this opportunity. I’d browsed their site before having seen them pinned on Pinterest. I love how the dresses are cut, they are classy and feminine and have that hip feel without feeling too trendy. You don’t have to worry that they are going to go out of style before you get to make it your go to dress. I chose this dress  to give away and love it.  

I get dressed up at most once a week for church so when I looked at how modest the dresses were I was even happier, but it’s still hot enough for a date night ( if I can remember what that is ). This dress really is so versatile. I put it on with some very high heels for my husband and his jaw drop was all I needed to know he approved. I also popped a cardigan over it , and paired it with flats and felt comfy enough to wear it all day.

My one complaint was how it had to be ironed. I am completely unable to iron so I am not sure if it was just my inability , the fabric’s desire to wrinkle , my disproportionate bust ( still nursing) or just the fact that it was unlined. The dress wasn’t tight at all but in the pictures it looks as though it is in places. The wrinkling wasn’t bad and I only noticed after looking at the photo. I just want to make sure I give a balanced review. The fit and feeling of it on was fabulous!

So here is the deal about the giveaway but first the gals at Shabby Apple are also offering a site wide 10% off coupon code for all my readers for 30 days.

The code is NoTimeFor10off

    I have been watching these dresses for years! They’re very popular in my swing dancing community. but as a Nanny and single mother, I simply can’t afford them. I’m hoping to save up and then I’ll have to choose between L.A., Rhythm dancer and The Boss. Thanks for doing a giveaway!

  3. says

    Love the Aristocrat dress. Our adopted son is coming home in a couple weeks. Gonna be needing some date-night apparel for when we do get time away! Beautiful dresses!

  4. Denise L says

    My favorite color to wear is red, so right now Baciami is my favorite Shabby Apple dress. But of course I adore the one you picked out – very classy. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love Shabby Apple. I’ve avoided them recently since I’m expecting, but I LOVE Ahoy and it looks like it would work well as a postpardum breastfeeding mom this summer!

  13. Heather N says

    I like the aphrodite maternity dress, and think Martha’s Vineyard would be flattering post-partum. Thanks for introducing me to their site. So many great options for after the babe comes!

  14. Ashley Hughes says

    I love the Gavotte Dress. The bow just fits my personality. All really beautiful dresses! I love that they are simple, modest but yes have a sexy flare for date nights.

    I never get dressed up anymore and my 3 year old son saw a woman wearing a dress and asked why I don’t dress like that-too funny! Anyways, after browsing the beautiful dressas at Shabby Apple, I love the Love Me Do dress under the 65 tab. Thanks!

  34. Shauna says

    I love them all!!! They’re beautiful & I’m so glad you put them on here for me to discover. Will definitely order from them whether I win or not 😉 I really liked the one you’re wearing Allison, but I also really loved Ingrid, in the 1943 collection.

    Oh, I love it! I think West Coast Swing was my favorite. It was fun just looking at all of those beautiful dresses!

  36. Sarah Meno says

    I love the Aintree dress in the sidesaddle collection. I wanted to love the dressage dress since that was the style of riding I did before the baby, but I’m cool with a steeplechase.
