Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Shabby Apple *review and giveaway!*

I go to church every Sunday, and wear a dress or skirt and blouse.  It is on Sundays- and pretty much only Sundays- that I actually feel pretty and feminine. I get to dress up in a pretty dress or skirt and blouse, wear cute high heels, and I even take the time to apply a bit of makeup.  But recently I’ve been getting a little bored with the same outfits.  Being a mom means we often go without, and so it’s not often I get a new outfit.  I do like to window shop a lot though, and have found a site I could have spent hours perusing…

Shabby Apple has a huge selection of apparel and accessories for women, including tons of beautiful, one-of-a-kind dresses.  I drool over them, and love so many of them.  Other than how gorgeous they are, I love love love that they’re modest!  Long length, higher neckline, and still gorgeous.

The Nothin’ Like A Dame dress is one of my very favorite dresses from Shabby Apple. And while it doesn’t look as good on me as it does on the model, I still feel amazing wearing it.

It is made from cotton poplin and 2% spandex (for a bit of stretch).  As you can see, it has a scoop neck with tucks, folds and ruffles with cap sleeves.  The sleeves are perfect for summer, especially here in Arizona where it gets hot hot hot!  I just loved the red color too!

The material wrinkles very easily, and although I ironed it right before I took the picture, it was hard to tell.  I imagine no matter how hard you try, that’s just the way this dress will be.  I also think I’d like it even better for me if the length were just above the knee rather than below.

Overall I am in love with this dress and am so thrilled to have it!

Shabby Apple is another company that is giving back financially to those in need. They’ve partnered with Unitus- a non-profit organization that accelerates access to life-changing financial services for those at the bottom of the economic pyramid.  Shabby Apple donates 5% of it’s net sales to support work in India, and every time you purchase a dress from Shabby Apple you are given the option to donate an additional $5 to the cause as well. You’ll feel even more a part of the cause when you receive your dress, as each new Shabby Apple Dresses dress features a unique hang tag with a micro-credit success story- your chance to see their work in action!
