Pretty Dresses Giveaway

My favorite thing to wear is a dress.

.........................Photobucket

I always feel prettier in dresses, no matter if I pair it with heels or flip-flops. I like casual dresses, fun dresses, elegant dresses... whenever I imagine a romantic rendezvous or a fun girl's get-together,
dresses are always my first choice.

That is why I ADORE the store Shabby Apple.

Photobucket

The dresses at Shabby Apple are simply stunning. Gorgeous details and colors, and such beautiful styles. There are numerous dresses that I want to take with me on a whirlwind getaway, or wear at a quiet tea with friends. I can't stress how much I LOVE this store. The Dress Section is unbelievable! And then on top of that, they carry a fabulous range of accessories.

Shabby Apple is the brainchild of Emily and CK who were always looking for lovely dresses that didn't require cardigans or scarves or extra additions to look complete. They wanted dresses that were self-contained, and that they could wear not only with friends, but could segue into visits with their parents - basically dresses that covered enough skin to make them feel comfortable in any setting.

Emily and CK are graciously giving away a dress to one lucky reader. The winner will have their pick of any dress they want from either of the following collections: Central Park, Carousel, 1943, Baja, Manhattan, or my personal favorite - Oh La La. I am going to be gone for two weeks on vacation, so you'll have until Sunday the 22nd to enter (plenty of time to think about which dress you'd like). To enter, leave a comment here telling me which dress you would choose if you won, and how that dress would make you feel if you wore it. I will announce the winner when I get back.

(I worked my first Indian Wedding over the weekend! It was a 2-day affair and so much fun. To see pics and read all about it, stop by my latest post at the Precious Nuptials blog here and leave some comment love)
(PPS. The winner of the McCheek's Mayhem giveaway is Tylerpants. Congrats!)

I love this store too! They have great style and the prices are not bad (especially when you don't need to buy that cardigan to go with the dress)! I would choose the Champs Elysee or L'Artiste...tough choice!
Have a great vacation!

Jessica Marie said...

I'd almost certainly pick the sheep meadow dress! It would make me feel like a like a cute sailorette. lol

Anne said...

I love the Bijou. It looks comfortable and flirty, which are both things that are a must for me!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

love the bugle boy dress. gorgeous!

Melanie's Randomness said...

I've always wanted a Shabby Apple dress!! I would get the ingrid one from the 1943 collection!

http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-507-ingrid.aspx.

I would feel so pretty & glamourous in it!! =)

A List Creations said...

I would LOVE the 5th Avenue dress! I know it would make me feel beautiful, and classy. I do miss New York!

becks said...

i would choose either the champs elysees or the le soleil. beautiful!

squirrelgonutz [at] yahoo [dot] com

VivatRegina said...

It's such a difficult decision!!! I've never seen any of this Shabby Apple stuff before and now I'm in LOVE! I love Ingrid and The Traveler and Carousel a LOT. I like to feel flirty, fun, stylish and COMFORTABLE in my clothes and these dresses would certainly meet all those standards! PLUS, I have some really hot red high heels that I don't get to wear very often and Ingrid and The Traveler would allow me to do so. YAY!!! :D

Julia said...

I would choose the BONHEUR Cape Cod White Shirt Dress, and I would feel very cool in the crisp cotton shape.

Katie said...

so hard to choose! THe Bonheur and the Giverny dress are both so pretty!!

kshuttle@uguelph.ca

Ali said...

Ooooh, Ingrid (from the 1943 line) is definitely my favorite! I'd feel so...sophisticated in it! :)

Kelly K. said...

What a tough decision! I think my favorite is the G.Cooper. Paired with pearls, I would feel like a million dollars. Sassy, classy, and rich.

Ashley said...

That yellow dress needs to be part of my life D! It's beautiful!

Nicole-Lynn said...

Great giveaway! I love the Azure Blue Dress!

Seasidesmitten@aol.com

Jingle said...

Oh, there were a few that I fell in love with!!! I am REALLY loving the G. Cooper dress, though! PINSTRIPES!!!! For reals! I would feel fabulously sophisticated in this dress with just a touch of flirty to boot! So fun! jinglesells at gmail dot com

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Enjoy your vaca!

I'd choose: http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-617-rendezvous.aspx

I'd feel like I was a Parisian "femme" :)

Melissa said...

I would love the OH LA LA dress, and it would make me feel chic and French. omydarlingblog(at)gmail(dot)com

laura said...

i would choose the Champs Elysees dress! I love wearing dresses...although mine usually are paired with flip flops rather than high heels! This pretty will make me feel like a beautiful woman, no matter what my shoes are!

Sarah Mina said...

I've heard a lot about this store but haven't bought anything yet. I am loving the Bugle Boy dress--it's flirty but sophisticated at the same time and I think it would look perfect with red shoes!

Vanessa Mala/HeightofVintage said...

Whoa! What an awesome giveaway!

Since I love vintage, I would go with the CASABLANCA!
When wearing it would be like stepping back into time to the 1940s with some glitz and glamour!
What a dress to show off some sass!

Hannah said...

I'd love the L'Artiste dress. So beautiful and yet simple--it would make me feel real and raw and beautiful. Lovely. :-)

Julie said...

I love this store! My favorite is definitely the Casablanca Dress from teh 1943 collection...I love that collar!


Wearing it would make me feel classy (I could easily pair it with pumps and wear to work) but also mysterious and intriguing (can't you see it with dainty gloves and a dramatic veil?) In essence, it would combine two of my favorite elements of femininity, into the best of both worlds!

Good luck everyone!

Hilary Leister said...

The Bette D. Dress from the 1943 collection is SO ME! I love all the styles from that era, especially the bright red lips!

Wearing that dress would make me feel like a hot, sophisticated woman... very sexy and elegant!

carotrott said...

My favorite is by far L'Opera from the Oh La La collection! WIth my fair skin and dark hair I tend to stick with saturated colors like this warm fuchsia. The detail on the chest would for sure make me feel classy and dainty! I would pair it with my gold mary jane heels for an elegant look- or even brushed silver gladiator wedges for a punk goes chic style!

legalbee said...

Ohh these dresses are all gorgeous!! I would have to either pick the Ingrid dress from the 1943 collection or the Rendezvous dress from the Oh La La collection. Either one would be a dream come true! Pairing either dress up with some red lipstick and nude pumps would make me feel so classy and beautiful!

Thanks for the chance!

mruna said...

i love the pont neuf dress! my second fave is the sheep meadow dress!

mrunamistry at gmail dot com

Meg said...

how lovely! i adore the champs elysees and the rendezvous, but if i have to pick one... the champs elysees! it's so versatile and gorgeous.

Lily T said...

Darling store. I'm a sucker for cute dresses and the champs elysees dress had me at hello. The pretty cinched pattern which highlights the waist draws a subtle, "look at me" attention that I love so much.

Lauren said...

I would definitely choose the tuileries dress! I would feel so carefree in that cute yellow dress. Yellow looks good on me and I would just want to dance all day in it!

lisaroyhandbags said...

wow- great dresses! love the bugle boy dress - the detail and cut is so cute, it would make me feel all girly and flirty! : )

shealennon said...

I love the Cortez dress from the Baja collection. Wearing that dress would make me feel like I was ready to conquer whatever fall had to offer!

shealennon@gmail.com

Kris said...

I'm a fan of the Coney Island!

mel sutton said...

i have been eyeing the L'Artiste dress...simple and perfect!

Meghan said...

I adore Shabby Apple - I purchased a dress from them last year, and every time I wear it, I feel like I belong in "Mad Men"!

My new fave is the Bette D! It's so chic! Hopefully it would make me feel like a movie star - very glamorous!

Linz said...

yellow dress!!!! i vote for the yellow dress!!! ohhh, i would feel so in "great gatsby" love!

OliviaB said...

I LOVE the Sheep Meadow dress from the Central Park collection! It is Beautiful and I would feel very fun wearing it...and be ready for a fun day with all my girlfriends! :)

Kaye Prince said...

I'm totally in love with Shabby Apple and I think Oh La La is my favourite collection too! It's way too hard to choose but I think right now I'd pick L'Artiste (or maybe Champs Elysees)!

Brandi said...

I had such a hard time choosing between the Bette D and Ingrid but I think I'm sticking with the Ingrid- I'd just feel so classy and glamourous in it!

alyssa said...

I would gladly take anything they have, but I am in love with the Ingrid!

NGS said...

I've been lusting over the Carousel line (especially the Carnival), so I'd go with Carousel. I love the happy, flirty vibe from those dresses and I think it would make me feel confident and sexy!!

jc said...

I like the Carousel Dress, the floral prints are so pretty. I love floral dresses, they make me feel so feminine and cheerful. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

yumihamano@gmail.com

k. davis said...

Wow, what a great shop! I'd have to say that my favorite collection is probably the BAJA collection... and I absolutely LOVE the Cortez dress. I think that dress would make me feel sophisticated... and it looks like it would be versatile... I think I could wear it on one of my photography shoots without a piece of it getting in the way or feeling "uncomfortable".

Little Miss Tiara said...

Oh Dionne! Those dresses are sooo pretty!!! I can't miss this chance! :D this is hard! I can't pick up only one! Okay, I'll try... mmm... *is concentrating*

...

...

...

ooookaayy... it's chams eliysees then, I love the skirt! ;D and the pretty white line... and... okay, I love this dress (along with the other dressess but you know I can only pick one..) lol :P

have a wonderful vacation! :D

Alice (fa11enan9e1) said...

I love Sheep Meadow, but I'm a sucker for Rendezvous. It's just so gorgeous! I love white dresses. Dresses in general make me SO HAPPY!

Jennifer Che said...

I've definitely fallen head over heels for Bonheur. It's such a gorgeous dress - light and summery. I'm in the Berkeley area right now where it's freezing, so wearing this dress once I have real summer weather will make me feel like summer is never-ending!

Nicole Marie said...

oh my gosh! i would love everything in the ohlala collection! i'm obsessed with l'artiste, l'opera and rendevous! i could wear them teaching and not feel teacherly, and wear them out to dinner and during the day for a picnic in the park ... very french :)

Nicole Marie said...

oh and have a great vacation dionne! you deserve some rest and relaxation!

A. Smith said...

Wow, thank you for the chance to win a pretty dress. I haven't worn a dress in so long I don't even think I own one except for my prom dress. I love them all but the one I would choose would be the Ingrid style from the 1943 collection. I'm grateful for the opportunity to feel pretty again :)

Hannah said...

I would choose Desert Bloom from the Baja collection.

Alicia said...

I LOVE that Sheep meadow dress and love having the chance to win! They have some beautiful collections

Lilly said...

I love the BETHESDA FOUNTAIN dress. And it would make me feel like those cute japanese girls because of the big bow.
Thanks for the chance. And have a great time =D

katrin said...

oh i love this store... that's the first time i checked it out and it was very hard for me to nail one down. But i am going got the """"Ingrid"""" dress because its so classy and flirty at the same dress... it would make me feel very glamorous and since i am from germany we love to dress dressy which i don't really do on a day to day bases anymore....
love love love the dress (=

Natalie Nicole said...

The "Bon Voyage" dress is subtly stunning. The top half would make me feel sophisticated and demure. My figure is small, so the belt would be a welcomed tape measure, so to speak. The pleats on the bottom are very girlish and flirty to me. In this dress, I would feel that no place is too good for me, yet the dress is not too snobbish for a cafe or coffee shop.
The deep blue would represent me well, because it sends the message "relax and let your guard down a little bit."

Pamela said...

Dionne!! I don't think I've ever been more excited about a giveaway before! I love Shabby Apple! Since I only where dresses/shirts with sleeves I'm sure you can tell why I love this brand. I LOVE the Rendezvous design from the Oh La La collection, though they are all gorgeous!

I hope you are enjoying your collection... xo

momentary lapse said...

I would pick the Tuileries Dress.

JennTRC said...

I love the Casablanca dress, I'd feel like a 40s hollywood star in it!

TopHat said...

I would choose Espina Bonita! I love the neckline!

hrfarley at gmail dot com

SarahRachel said...

I love the L'Amour dress in gorgeous green... I'd feel like Christina Hendricks in it at work!

Cindy said...

I love shabby apple and their dresses. I think I will feel so sexy in their dresses. I love Rendezvous, Fifth Ave, Bugle Boy, & San Gabriel. cindyhinckley at msn.

Jill said...

I love the retro feel of their dresses - so lovely and simply elegant.
My favorites are the L'Artiste (love that boat neck), the Fifth Avenue (love the pencil skirt) and the Upper East Side (gorgeous blue!).
Thanks for this giveaway. :)

AmandaSue said...

I like the Carousel dress in the Carousel collection, its so different then what I normally wear, so I would feel awesome! I love feeling pretty and love wearing stuff I normally don't wear. THanks for entering me into this giveaway.

Emily said...

I'd love the Champs Elysee dress. It'd make me feel like I was back in Paris, studying French, and living the glamorous European life.
e.estt[at]yahoo[dot]com

Angie said...

I can't decide between Cider or Bon Voyage. Bon Voyage is classic with little details and would make you feel subtly pretty. But Cider's color is incredible and makes a statement. It would make you feel like a super model turning heads!

Mesha said...

What a wonderful giveaway ! I'm terribly in love with all the designs, but if I must pick a favorite then I'll say Bonheur from the Paris collection because it's really summery and would bring out my natural tan - I feel bright colors make me look odd and dark ones make me look even tanner; white dresses have always been my choice !
Anyway, lovely giveaway !

kiwi.w [!at] live.com

Emily said...

I ADORE Shabby Apple! It depends on my mood but currently I'm digging the Bugle Boy. The sweet flower on the bodice would make me feel like a little girl again! emilyfette@gmail.com

Loreta said...

Ohmigosh, I love the San Gabriel dress from the Baja collection! I love that it's got a military look combined with a romantic one. I would be soo happy wearing it <3

leemoor1 at gmail dot com

EG said...

I don't own any Shabby Apple dresses, but I still get all excited when I see them! And look, they have bathing suits now!

Today I'm loving L'Artiste! Or maybe Penelope and Odysseus. It's hard to decide.

Ľubaša said...

I would choose green L'AMOUR dress. I believe that I would feel very well in it, receiving strenght from this vibrant color and being observed by many curious eyes.:-)
thanks

Darija said...

I would choose the Cortez dress cause I think that it would fit me and my personality perfectly.

darijadoll@hotmail.com

Lola said...

Shabby Apple dresses are lovely! It was very hard to pick just one as my favorite.

L'Opera dress would make me feel like a lady living in the 1930's. I love the feminine and delicate ruffles. ... and the mauve color, a really show-stopper!

Jill Turner said...

I love the Champs Elysees dress from the Oh La La collection! I would dress it up with some nude heels and gold jewelry. I would feel so Parisian in the dress - which is always a plus! Paris is the best place in the world, but I never feel quite dressed up enough there. I always feel like I stand out, no matter how much I try to fit in. Great giveaway.

AutumH said...

I would have to pick the ingrid dress. I love it because it's sexy,feminine yet still classy and I would feel beyond amazing in it whenever I wore it.

autum22(At)gmail(dot)com

burlap+blue said...

what a hard decision! I think I'd choose Champs Elysees from the Ooh La La collection...so pretty! I'd (hopefully!) feel pretty and stylish wearing it!

Haylee said...

the navy pleated summer dress would make me feel stunning!

happy_haylee_3(at)hotmail(dot)com

Kate said...

Shabby Apple dresses are SO beautiful, and I just love Washington Square Park. I would feel totally sophisticated in that dress. I'd have to find somewhere special to wear it, before giving into wearing it nearly everyday!

Holly Knitlightly said...

Ooh it was so hard to pick a dress! They're all GORGEOUS. I would love one of each, haha! I narrowed it down to two though! Champs Elysees! It's soooooo pretty. I would love to go up in the Eiffel Tower wearing this dress, then have a picnic at the bottom!

Christina Moreno- floresdelsol said...

YeS!! DionNE!!! I love shabby apple dresses! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are very FEW cute modest clothing stores and everything I wear is modest. I have a dress from the baja collection and I LOVE IT! But,I need to add to my dress selection!
I would love "glacier" but I would pronounce it like how Bear Grills says it. I would wear it and feel so sophisticated !

gustosa said...

the dresses are beautiful, hard to pick, i love the casablanca and ingrid, theses would make me feel stunning, elegant and gorgeous.

thanks for the opportunity,

have a safe and fun vacation

Bunny B said...

I would love to win the Cortez. It would make me feel smart, classy yet cool. Thanks!

lo said...

I love the Sheep Meadow dress. Wearing it would make me feel cute and cheery!

Lisa said...

It's so hard to choose. I love my LBDs, but it's time for more dresses and color to find their way into my wardrobe. My pick is the Cortez. I love the ruffles and buttons on the top, and I have the right shoes for the dress too. Wearing the Cortez would make me feel confident, flirty, and fun.

I love the Marseilles. It would make me feel summery and cosmopolitan.

weezie said...

I truly had a very difficult time picking just one dress. But if I had to choose I would choose from the 1943 line, the Casablanca black dress.
I am a 1950s girl thru and thru even though I was born in the 1970s. So happy to see a website that features dresses that flatter a real womens curves. How would I feel if I won this giveaway?? ELATED and like a million bucks!!
Fingers crossed!!
Luisa

Lilja said...

Oh my, the bangles are AMAZING!
Good luck to everyone for the giveaway ( I do not try just beacause I cannot wear dresses...So I think it's better not to take away a chance to someone who can fit it well!!!)

Gaia said...

Hi sweety!
I'moff for 2 weeks! Talk to you at the end f the month!
Have a great summe!

Heather Taylor said...

I love this store to pieces! If I won a dress it would be Madison Ave from the Manhattan collection- love the print and boatneck!

Anonymous said...

Really great store!!
I love the Carousel collection, so I would certainly choose the Cotton Candy dress!!!

Tender Branson said...

Beautiful Indian wedding. Love the decorations and the henna involved.

monkeyandsquirrel said...

so lovely!!! i would have to choose the cortez dress from the baja collection. so adorably flirty... perfect for date nights :)

Amy B. said...

It's so hard to decide! I think I would pick La Tour Eiffel. It would make me feel curvy, in a good way.

randomness... said...

My favorite is definitely the Bugle Boy Dress! It's elegant but simple! I love it.

Should I leave my email?
randomness.blue(at)gmail.com

Quincey S. said...

wow. this is probably the hardest decision i've had to make all day.
haha.
i've finally narrowed it down to three... this is going to take a lot of further thinking. but for now:
cortez from the baja collection.
bonheur
& champs elysees from oh la la.

any of those would just make me feel like twirling in a meadow full of flowers all day! &going to picnics &boating &all that lovely summer fun!

Sophia Almada said...

The dresses are all so adorable it was hard to choose! They are just the right amount of coverage without looking conservative. But I have to say, I was totally attracted to the Madison Ave dress from the Manhattan collection. SO CUTE! I would love to wear it with a long red coat I bought and I would traipse around the San Francisco streets, feeling like Jackie O, confident and sophisticated.

Great blog, I love all the stuff you post!

sophiala11@yahoo.com

Carey said...

I so enjoyed looking at Shabby Apple's beautiful and wearable dresses! After lusting after all the city looks, I remembered who I REALLY am and decided the dress I'd choose would be "The Traveler" from the Baja Collection. When wearing that dress I would feel as if I were reflecting all of my very favorite parts of myself. Even the parts that haven't come true yet:) So often I'll try on clothes, take a look in the mirror, and feel like a fraud. This especially happens in dresses because I'm a blue jeans girl. But "The Traveler" would give me the smart & tailored, yet casual & down to earth look I need in order to feel like myself. Though I'm a jeans girl, I do like having one item of flair, and that loooooong, flirty necktie on "The Traveler" is just the ticket. And to top it all off I love the dry, open spaces of the west, so how could I not feel my best in that dress?

Liz Thompson said...

Bugle Boy! It is the kind of dress that makes you feel instant cute (and skinny) when you put it on!

Camila F. said...

I love the 'Oh la la' dress, it's so pretty. Wearing this outfit would make me feel in Paris everyday, no matter where I am!

naomemandeflores@gmail.com

Heather Ann said...

I would choose the champs elsees. And I imagine it would make me feel like I was ready for any and every occasion. I'm so excited to find a clothing maker that doesn't think we all need to look like sex pots. I'm in my late 20's and I struggle find things that are fresh (read not old lady) and yet not revealing. I love this! thanks for hosting this give away it's a sweet advert even if I don't win ;)

GingerLand said...

I've been eyeing that Bugle Boy dress for a bit now!

Tali Schiffer said...

I absolutely love their dresses! I've seen several posts around blogland (probably here too...) raving about their dresses and I've fallen in love! They are so absolutely feminine and fun.
If I win (and oh how I wish I win!!!) I would have to choose between the 1943 collection's Bugle Boy, or the Oh La La collection's L'Artiste. They are both gorgeous!!

Holly said...

I like the sheep meadow dress.

aubrey said...

it's been a long time since i've visited your blog!:D
lovely as always..and very cute dresses by the way..:D

Dieshawn Holmes said...

I love the Sheep Meadow Green and white Dress.

Henria O. said...

My dress of choice would be the G. Cooper...
http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-511-g-cooper.aspx

I'd wear it casually with a cropped jean jacket and either black patent ballet flats or my Converse low-tops! I'd feel cool, comfortable, and casual!

[emt] said...

I heart the sheep meadow dress.

Cubicle Chic said...

Shabby Apple's dresses are so cute! I think I would go with L'Amour because the green would go nicely with my hair and I looooove ruffles :)

Tambria said...

If I won, I would choose the Ferris Wheel dress. I love the colors and the collar on the dress. This dress is gorgeous. I would feel simply beautiful and elegant in this dress.

Dionne, thank you for exposing us to Shabby Apple.

Biff said...

Hi Dionne - I don't think I've posted on your blog before, but I was looking at the awesome pictures from Karla's wedding. It was so lovely! Nice work! I think in the spirit of today, I would pick the Champs Elysees dress - I'd feel sophisticated and like a grown up new homeowner! Haha. :) Have a great day!

Amanda said...

I love the Le Soleil dress! I would feel bright, and sophisticated in it. Yellow isn't a color I have much of in my closet, and I love the cut/color of this dress!

Elizabeth said...

I don't know which one I would pick, but they would all make me feel great!

Robin said...

I would love the Champs Elysees dress. I would feel so pretty and sophisticated!!

laura @ so alaurable said...

I love EVERYTHING from Shabby Apple! I think my fave right now is the Champs Elysees dress.

Kelli Marie said...

I love these dresses! I had no idea this store existed. I can't decide between the Tuileries Dress or L'Artiste in Oh la la. I just want to go on a picnic and do nothing but eat, draw, and read Jane Austen. =)

Jenn said...

what a FABULOUS shoppe!!! at first i was smitten with the 1943 collection (truman is divine!), but then i found Oh la la! L'opera is spectacular! i love love love purple! and the texture on top is perfect!

ps-i found your blog through contented me -- love it!!

Dionne, what font did you use for the text on the photos? I've been searching myfonts as well as free font sites such as dafont and can't find it. It's perfectly lovely, and I'd love to add it to my collection. :-)

Wild and Precious said...
