Happy Friday all!
Today is a particularly happy Friday because I have a wonderful surprise for you.
A few years ago one of my most fashion conscious friends introduced me to a website called Shabby Apple. She was obsessed with it and frequently found special occasion dresses on their site.
Shabby Apple is an online dress boutique that specializes in vintage and retro dresses. You know me, and all I wear is dresses!
Given that it's the start of wedding season (I've been to one already), a girl can never have enough go-to ensembles. Keep reading to see my favorite pieces currently on the site.
This black and white striped dress is called Eye Candy. I love that the stripes are horizontal across the bodice and chevron on the skirt. I would style the dress just as they have, with a bright, bold necklace.
I squealed with delight when I uncovered the Papaya Perfection dress. It has everything I love - the color pink, a cinched waist and an alliterative name. I think this is a dream dress for a bridal shower, garden party or a sunset boat cruise.
For something a bit more sophisticated, slip into the elegant Tiber dress. The white makes this dress classic for summer, but the thin navy stripes elevate it for evening.
The best part about these dresses? Not only are they feminine and gorgeous, they are affordable. The Eye Candy dress is currently selling for $88 dollars, the Papaya Perfection for $78 dollars and the Tiber dress is on sale for $48 dollars!
Shabby Apple specializes in dresses, but they also have everything you could need to complete your look - jewelry, shoes, bags, sunglasses and hats. Of their accessories, my current favorite is the Juliette necklace. I'm very into the contrast of the quiet pearls against the bright turquoise rose. This would look great with a dress or even a cotton t-shirt.
Now that you've seen the goods, are you ready to start shopping?
