Shabby Apple – Review

Are you looking for a great spring dress, the warm weather is coming and why not take the time now to add a great new outfit to your wardrobe, I have a wonderful place to suggest to you, Shabby Apple! Here is a little more information about shabby apple from the website:

Shabby Apple welcomes you to great dresses that make dressing simple. We started Shabby Apple because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women.

We’re an online dress boutique selling women’s dresses, casual dresses, skirts, and women’s apparel. We recognize that finding the perfect dress can sometimes be challenging, which is why strive to design highly fashionable dresses for all types of women. So please, feel free to have a look around. Whether you’re looking for evening dresses, blouses, or the perfect skirt, we should have something that is right for you.

A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).


My Review:

Spring is here! And we are finally seeing some warmer days here in the northeast, and I cannot wait to start wearing dresses to work more regularly. Sure pants are fine for me, but I am a dress lover I just love wearing them. I recently had the chance to pick a dress from the Shabby Apple website, and boy did they have a lot of lovely dresses! But what to choose, I spent a while searching through the dress pages. I loved how they itemized the dresses, there are dress styles listed so you can shop by style or you can just view all of the dresses and look for the dress you would love! 

I finally decided on the PucaPucara dress, I just loved how it looked like it was a skirt/top combo. As soon as the dress arrived I just had to wear it, it was a beautiful dress. The colors just popped, the blue and the yellow worked so nicely together. I wore the dress to work and got a lot of great complements on it. My co-workers also thought it was a top and a skirt! No it is just a unique dress, and I love it. The dress is light and easy to wear, I wore the dress all day without any issues. The dress fit well with my body shape, I have larger hips and this dress has an ample bottom so I had plenty of room in it. Also this dress is a great twirling dress, my daughter just loved that it could twirl! It was very feminine and just a great dress for me.

The eye-catching skirt of this festive dress features an energetic pattern reminiscent of the weaving of walls, terraces, and staircases of the Puca Pucara military ruins near Cusco. Cast in vibrant shades of goldenrod, jade, and cerulean, the skirt's lively print is offset perfectly by the subdued midnight blue of the dress's solid top. Not only does the combination of high waist and full skirt slenderize the waistline and evaporate the hips, it makes twirling irresistible. 100% cotton. 

I was also able to wash this dress easily, it is nice to have a dress that does not need dry cleaning, as a working mom I just do not have time to go to the dry cleaners!  The only issue with this dress is that it runs big (this is no secret though…. It is mentioned on the page for the dress that this runs big) believe it when they tell you it runs big, I am  so happy I ordered a size down it fits very nice. If you are concerned about the size issue, don’t worry if the size is not right for you just return it item to Shabby Apple and they will exchange it for another size for FREE.

I also love that Shabby Apple is a company that gives back, with your purchase know that Shabby Apple donates a percentage of their net proceeds to charitable causes serving women and children. This is wonderful!  It is nice to know that when I make a purchase I will be getting a great item of clothing and I will feel good knowing I will help to give back too.

So if you are looking for a gift for mom, or if you would like to pick up a great dress (or top or skirt…. Shabby Apple is not just dresses) for yourself why not check out Shabby Apple, you will not be disappointed.
