Pretty Dresses

I came across Shabby Apple about a year ago, before I started blogging, and was immediately interested in their clothes. I tend to have the problem of not being able to find dresses that fit well in normal stores. Now, that's probably because I'm not going to the right stores, since I don't tend to shop at higher end shops. I can find dresses that fit in the Junior department--but because I'm really not that short of a person, those are often so short that I'd have to wear pants under the dress to be comfortable. I'm not against the style of wearing pants with dresses, I do that occasionally--but they really seem to take the 'dressyness' out of an outfit--anything seems more casual when you're wearing pants.

I'd never bought clothes online before, but we decided to try it out, and for Christmas, Angel bought me a dress. It just so happened that it fit perfectly! Since then we've ordered the same size every time, and all three of my Shabby Apple dresses have fit just the way I like them to! I like that the sizing is, so far, consistent enough that I don't have to be too worried if the dress will fit when I order one.

I know you just saw this one, because this is what I wore on my first day of school. Angel actually bought this dress for me as a surprise without even asking me if I liked it first! It's a good thing he has good taste.

Found here.
I wore this for my college graduation!

And this was my first Shabby Apple dress--I can't find it on their website anymore, but it was part of the Manhattan Collection, maybe it'll come back!

Clearly I haven't tried all of the Shabby Apple dresses, but I love the fit and the quality of the ones I've tried so far! If you're looking for a dress for a special occasion, I wholeheartedly recommend them! And watch out for their sales too--that can make the dresses a little more affordable. Right now, you can use the code favorite10 to get 10% off anything on their site. The code expires tomorrow, though, so if you've been thinking of buying a dress from them, now's the time!

cute dresses! i know exactly what you mean about the junior department dresses! they are always super short and ride all the way up. i almost always end up wearing pants under the dresses i buy in regular stores! i've never shopped at shabby apple but i'd like to give it a try.

new to your blog, looking forward to future posts!

I love shabby apple! I won one on a blog contest once. I have the ballerina dress. It would probably look better on someone with your figure, but it doesnt look too bad on me! I love the cream colored dress!

I wanted the manhattan dress so badly! I saved and saved and when I went to buy it, it was gone like you said! I called customer service and they said they didn't have any plans of bringing it back. I felt like crying. I'm so glad you got it though. It looks great on you!

shabby apple does have some really cute things...great to know their sizing is consistent. that's one of the big issues i have with online shopping, and it's such a hassle to exchange and return!

thanks so much for your comment!

The Manhattan dress is especially fab -- I like that all of them seem to have longer lengths, which I also appreciate! Visiting via Sunday Style :)
