Shop Shabby Apple and help the world's working poor - Review & Giveaway - ends 8/31


Do you have a wedding, birthday or other social event coming up that you need a new outfit for?

You could go to one of the major department stores and buy a dress or skirt that I'm sure you'd look good wearing.

Or, you could shop online at Shabby Apple (http://www.shabbyapple.com) and find an incredible selection of women's dresses that will make you feel good wearing both inside and out.

Why?

Shabby Apple shares their profits with Unitus - an organization that helps the world's working poor by giving them access to micro-loans. For example, the dress I ordered gave a 35 year old widow, living in India, access to an $89 loan for her bamboo weaving company - that allowed her to continue to provide for her two children's basic care and education.

....and that's why you'll feel good about ordering your next dress from this company!

Wearing my Shabby Apple Ballerina Dress

I chose the Ballerina style from Shabby Apple, made from a pretty purple, soft jersey fabric that is ruched around the mid-section to flatter (ie. hide) my extra curves left over from pregnancy.

Please, keep in mind that I just had a baby 2 weeks prior to taking this photo - quite flattering if I don't say so myself. This style is so versatile, I could wear it out for a date, to a wedding, or even to the store - plus it has a great neckline that makes it great for breastfeeding

Reading other reviews, consensus is that sizes run quite large at Shabby Apple - so order a size or two smaller than you'd usually order. I am usually a Medium or Size 8 (130lbs, 5'3) and I ordered an XS which fit great.

  2. FYI: On the Rate Your Blog voting opportunity, the ranking is actually 1 - 10, not 1 -5 as you mentioned. 5 is rated Average, while 10 is the Top rating. Thought you'd want to know that your readers can vote higher than 5!
