shabby apple dress review and giveaway …

June 17, 2011

i was thrilled when shabby apple contacted me to do a review of one of their darling dresses.

i’ve been wanting a shabby apple dress for a long time, so i was happy to finally get to try one out!

i ended up choosing the mariposa grove green dress.  i have a thing for kelly green!

i ended up pairing it with a small cardigan because it was a chilly day.  and, don’t mind the uncooperative miss norah…  and, that my husband cut my feet off in the picture.. ha ha.

it has cute scallops around the neckline, which you can kind of see better in this picture.
i thought the quality overall was very nice.  the cap sleeves i thought were a little bit smaller than it looked on the model, but other than that i really liked the fit of the dress.  it also seems to run big, as i ordered an extra small even with extra baby weight i have yet to lose.

so, i have some exciting news for you readers!

shabby apple is giving one of you their new adelaide bow skirt.  isn’t it darling?
i am in love with that big bow!  too cute!

all you have to do is, check out shabby apple, and let me know what your favorite piece is in the comment section!  you have until wednesday, june 22nd at midnight to enter. (us residents only)

the winner will be announced thursday, june 23rd.  good luck!

and, for the rest of you, shabby apple is offering my readers 10% off their next order.  just type in the code, armelle10off at checkout! (code expires july 17, 2011)

    I love the seven seas in seersucker. All of their dresses are adorable. I wish I could afford them!

    my favorite thing at shabby apple, hands down, is the gondola dress. the navy stripes with the green, it's just gorgeous! this skirt is fabulous as well.

  3. Morgan & Imanol

    The bow skirt would go with so many things – and navy is my staple color. I really like the Viola swimsuit which is part of the Amalfi coast collection. Perfect and modest. πŸ™‚

    Oh my, where do I begin… pretty sure I would gladly accept any Shabby Apple goodness that came my way:) I am lovin' the maxi dresses lately though, so I might say that the Piazza Navona is calling my name. Wish me luck! ~xo

    p.s. love your blog! and your kelly green dress:)

  5. Heather

    I love so many of them, but the SIERRA NEVADA has been calling my name for a while! If I had all the money in the world, I would gladly take one of each!

    Gondola, hands down. Adorable for work, even better for after work drinks on a patio!! Plus, I already have shoes that would work perfectly!!

    Shabby Apple has great, great stuff. I love their maternity dresses and am hoping to be gifted with one the second go round!!

    LOVE that green on you with your dark hair!

    I've got a running list of the things I want from SA. Honestly at the top is the Adelaide bow skirt…so maybe it's a sign!

    Here's to hoping!

    I love this website, I could look at these dresses all day!It is so difficult to find quality dresses. Gondola is at the top of my wish list right now…..

  10. Lexi

    I just got the Cider dress to get hitched in. I wish I would have waited for the 10% off but I could always use more from Shabby Apple!

  11. mustang

    Ohh, how fun! I too have a list of dresses that I have wanted but I really like Toe the Line because chambray is always in good taste.

    While this bow skirt is definitely my favorite the ruffle skirt is a close 2nd! :o) Crossing my fingers would LOVE to brighten up my work day with something this fun!

  13. Amanda Bair

    My heart is drawn to the New Caledonia dress : ) so classicly feminine! Throw on some nude heels and I'd be out the door!

  14. Fritzi Marie

    I love Shabby Apple. I've had their blue Upper East Side dress on my wish list for a while now. Thanks for the discount.
