Shabby Apple Giveaway

I know it's just February, but this is the time of year that I start dreaming of summery dresses and the sun on my arms.  Playful tops and classy swimsuits and the sound of kids running on the beach.  Luckily, I know just the website to visit when my mind gets all dreamy and stir-crazy with the winter season.  I'm never disappointed when I browse through Shabby Apple...
I love the red and white stripes in this Venezia swimsuit.  Lately I have been obsessed with stripes.  In fact, I am wearing a wide striped black and white shirt as I type this.  I also suspect that the high black belt would be slimming.  Perfect!

Of course, Shabby Apple is best known for their large assortment of gorgeous dresses.  Truly, there is going to be a dress on there that you love.  I seem to always be drawn toward their dresses where the model is in the Southwest.  The combination of flirty and desert in a vintage dress just calls my name.  Check out Cayenne:
 
 
Last Fall I was fortunate enough to win a dress from Shabby Apple (thanks to Shabby Apple and Sandie!).  I was not asked to do a review of my dress, but I absolutely love it, so I thought I'd share a picture with my readers - to show that their dresses are beautiful on regular people like myself.  The material is so soft, and the cut of the dress I found very flattering.
 

You know what else I love about this dress?  It doesn't tend to get wrinkly (I never, ever iron), so it would be awesome to take when traveling.  I haven't had an excuse to wear it yet, but I'm hoping to do so later this Spring.

Readers, Shabby Apple has been kind enough to offer a $50 giveaway for one lucky person!  This is a Rafflecopter giveaway.  Disclaimer:  I did not receive anything in exchange for this blog post, but I knew that the giveaway and information would be of interest to my readers.

Oh Lisa I was admiring the styles of those dresses thinking back to a time when dresses were beautiful in cut and design. These look very feminine and lovely. I then seen you in one and was blown away it looks fantastic. Oh I do hope you go somewhere special especially with those boots. LOVE the look. B

The dress is stunning on you but certainly is not a colour I would choose. I like spots not stripes but good job we are all different.
