Giveaway: Shabby Apple

I hinted on Monday that I had a surprised planned for you today, it's something I've been excited about all week long - a giveaway with a fantastic prize - this gorgeous, blue women's dress from Shabby Apple!


My summer wardrobe staple is a sundress. I don't love the way I look in capri's or shorts and jeans are too hot, so I spent the summer in dresses. My closet is full of colorful, fun dresses that are easy to dress-up or down depending on the occasion.  Wearing a flirty dress makes me feel girly, a maxi dress makes me feel carefree and the all-purpose little black dress makes me feel elegant.  In fact, a suitcase full of dresses is how I managed to fit over 3 weeks of clothing for a trip to Switzerland in a carry-on bag.  I love this quote from their website:  "A return to what dresses were always meant to be - a one piece outfit.  No need to add anything...no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories or course!)"

I've spent a bunch of time browsing Shabby Apple's website in the past few weeks, picking out a dress to giveaway and to find the perfect dress for myself (I have a gift certificate I'm ready to cash in) and the only problem I've had is narrowing my selection down, there are so many beautiful options, here are some of the dresses I'm considering for myself:


Amazing yellow dress


Sophisticated navy dress


To enter the giveaway, head over to Shabby Apple and look at their dresses, then come back here and comment telling me which your favorite is.  If you are a subscriber/follower of this blog, add a second comment for an extra chance at winning.  Comments will be accepted until end of day Wednesday, July  27, I'll announce the lucky winner next Friday.

Even if you don't win (or if you find a dress you just have to have NOW) Shabby Apple is giving you all 10% off with the coupon code: lyricaljourney10off, which will be good for the next 30 days.  Even better, they also currently running a huge sale, with many of their dresses 20% off, so the time to shop is now (just enter SUMMER20 as the coupon code)!

If you fall in love with Shabby Apple like I have and want to start filling your wardrobe with dresses, be sure to head over to their Facebook page and "like" them so you can get in on special offers and deals. Even for those of you who may not be dress fans, give their website a look, they also sell the most awesome, retro women's swimwear, have some adorable girl's dresses, and gorgeous women's jewelry.

Thanks to Shabby Apple for providing the dress for this giveaway.

Because I'm in a super girly mood after writing this post and I've been listening to the new Peter Bradley Adams album all day, I think his song Katy is the perfect way to end this post:
Pin It

Oooooo!!! I have been oogling Shabby Apple for so long, but have never taken the purchasing plunge. 20% off? Oh, hello. May have to!

Anyway...I am in love with Ahoy. It's so plucky and fun...and it's in my wedding colors, so it might make a great rehearsal dress!

Off-topic from all the Giveaway-ness, but I feel like Perfect turquoise dress could look a little... maternity. I vote for you to get the green and navy striped dress! It's good for all seasons.
