shabby apple

Hi everyone!

It's not every day that I put on a dress and immediately exclaim "Look, I'm a princess!" (yes, it happened), but this darling dress from Shabby Apple's bridesmaids collection is an exception. First of all, it comes in the most gorgeous shade of blue and is also available in a couple of other color options like pale pink and kelly green. Might as well stock up with all three, right?

Not only does it come in beautiful, rich colors, but the fabric (stretch taffeta) enhances the color even more by adding a little sheen that catches light as you move. Even though this dress is from Shabby Apple's bridesmaids collection, it's actually an extremely versatile piece that can transcend seasons and occasions. I chose to dress up the look with a pair of slingbacks and beachy waves, but I could totally see it dressed down with a pair of addidas kicks and a top knot for something unexpected and fun.

Moving on to the shape. Ah, the fit-and-flare...also known as every gals best friend. There's something about the combination of a cinched waistline and pleating that is so effortlessly feminine that it almost hurts. As Calvin Harris said about Taylor Swift, I now say about this dress: "it ticks boxes I didn't even know existed."

Bottom line: this dress was made for twirling, sipping champagne and basically being fabulous. 

Not. Too. Shabby (Apple).
