We all know how essential the “Little Black Dress” is to our wardrobes. Something about slipping on that perfect dress makes us feel confident and sexy. Recently, I needed just that, when I attended BlogHer ’09 in Chicago.
Thanks to Shabby Apple, I was able to glam it up at the Nikon Party in Chicago. Check it out:
Shabby Apple sent me the Antiquated Dress and boy did I fall in love!
From the Shabby Apple website:
This dress has limited edition Indian lace and is fully lined with stretch-acetate lining for comfort. This dress has a stand-up collar, a V-neck and cap sleeves. The skirt’s hemline hits mid-calf. This dress also comes with a four inch wide black satin sash that ties at the waist. The dress has a side zipper and fits snugly to flatter your figure. This dress travels well.
One word describing this dress is: Elegant
I felt so “Suave” in lace and heels. This dress comes with a silk black sash to wrap around your waist, which became the perfect accent to the ensemble. If you’re looking to splash a little color, Shabby Apple the Crimson Wave red sash to accompany the dress for Holidays such as Christmas, New Years, and even Valentine’s Day.
As amazing as this dress is, I do have a few improvements I’d like to let you in on.
–Sizing On the Shabby Apple website it states: This dress FITS GENEROUSLY. (Consider ordering one size smaller than you would normally order.) I found this not to be the case, as I had some sizing issues. Usually wearing a Large, I ordered a Medium, but found it to be REALLY tight. The fabric material does not stretch, so I’d say order the size you would normally order.
–Price I’m all about shopping on a budget and living inside my means. This dress retails for 93.00 and the additional Crimson Wave red sash is 18.00. Once you factor in shipping, you’re well over $115.00. Although, this dress is totally worth it, it’s hard for me, with a family of five, to spend the extra money.
Although, there were a few Momma Improvements, I like the fact that I can shop at Shabby Apple for both myself and my daughter. Shabby Apple specializes in little girl and Tween dresses such as the Garden Party Dress (which I happen to love):
I’d like to thank Shabby Apple for sponsoring this amazingly elegant dress for me on my BlogHer ’09 trip. I received so many compliments, asking me where to find one, who sells it, what’s the website. I was proud and excited to tell them it comes from Shabby Apple.
