Blogher Bound with Shabby Apple Up and Away! (Up for grabs)

by Pam on June 20, 2012

I’ll be attending Blogher for the first time in August. I was prepared for meeting new people and attending seminars for tips on improving my blog. What I wasn’t prepared for were the parties! As a teacher, my wardrobe is “limited,” meaning casual and easy to clean if anything is spilled on my outfit. I needed a new dress, stat! Shabby Apple came to my rescue with their lovely dress collection. Featuring classic styles with modern touches, I was slightly overwhelmed with their large selection, most of which I wanted for myself! After an hour of browsing their selections, I settled on the Up and Away!

Made from Crepe de Chine Silk, this dress is the image of versatility. The simple design allows it to be worn for business lunches and to the office or dressed up for the evening with heels, hose and jewelry. When I pulled the dress from the package the fabric felt thin enough that I was afraid it might be see through. After trying on the dress and having my husband observe me from all angles, I was satisfied it could be worn without a slip underneath.

This dress does wrinkle easily. When I removed it from the package, I wasn’t sure how to get rid of the wrinkles because it is dry clean only. I finally put it into the dryer on the “fluff” cycle for five minutes, which worked but is probably not recommended.

Featuring Raglan sleeves, a tie back waist and a barely above the knee hemline, the Up and Away is figure faltering. The Smoke Gray shade is unusual and a fun twist on The Little Black Dress. The only problem I had was the neck line was a teensy bit looser than I am used too. I found myself checking a few times to make sure I had no visible straps showing.

Shabby Apple has dresses for any occasion as well as jewelry, accessories, and a maternity and kids selection. Connect with them on facebook and twitter. Use the coupon code  justlikejune10off to receive 10% off any order. 

Win It!
One person will receive a $50 Shabby Apple Gift Certificate.
