shabby apple dress review

The sweet folks at Shabby Apple contacted me to review one of their dresses.  I’ve seen their dresses all over blogland, but had never tried one for myself, so I was supa dupa excited when it arrived!

When ordering something online, I do get a little nervous right as I’m opening the package.  The fingers are crossed, “Oh please, oh please, oh pleeeeeease be awesome!!!”  They did not disappoint!
I chose their Racquet Club dress.  The stripes and little box pleats at the waist suckered me in.

The fabric is a nice and sturdy cotton.  No need for a slip.  The seams are nicely sewn and the fit is true to their size chart.  With this particular dress I ordered according to my waist measurement since the skirt was nice and full.  It’s a little snug across the chest and shoulders, but I expected that as I have extremely broad shoulders.  Even with that, it’s a very comfortable dress.
The thing I like about Shabby Apple dresses are how they’re modest without looking like it.  I think that’s because they style them to have a fun vintage clothing look.  It’s a dress I can wear while holding my son and not worry about him yanking the neckline down, and where I can also bend over to pick him up and not worry about it being too short.  One incredibly embarrassing moment at an all male booth at Round Top will have you giving your necklines a second thought when holding a small child.  Just saying…
And yes, the one hand on my hip is the only pose I’ve got ๐Ÿ˜€
Now that I know I’m going to like the quality of their dresses, here are a few that are on my radar.  Pretty sure one or two need to get in my closet quick, fast, and in a hurry.

Which one is your fav?  I think the blue one on the top right will need to happen for fall.

    You did not have a baby a year ago. He was sent from the stork…I'm convinced. Too skinny to have carried him. You are so pretty. Good gene sucker. That is all, love you most.
