What I Wore - Shabby Apple Ed.




The sweet people from Shabby Apple were kind enough to send over a dress for a little review. My review? I am in LOVE! No Ellie did not pick the shoes for this dress, but my Mr. told me which looked best. We thought we would make it extra fun so I donned some red lipstick and we did a little shoot. Now Ellie thinks I should wear lipstick everyday, but alas that will not happen since I rarely even wear makeup. Isn't this dress just the sweetest? One of my sisters thought so too and when she tried it on I could tell she felt pretty so it now hangs in her closet. Everyone needs a dress that makes them feel extra special. So a dress that makes you feel pretty and special, now that's a winner. I can't wait to try their fitness line and this swimsuit is just too divine, oh and to order another dress, ha!

Wow, you look absolutely stunning Paula. The colour, stripes and style of dress really suits and I think Ellie is right about the lippie (I don't wear makeup either, but still wear lippie, really makes a difference I think).
Happy weekend.

you look lovely, it's a sweet dress and the sash just gives it such a twist, the colours look great on you and the lipstick sets it off wonderfully.

nice. from an artistic point, the second shot with the neck and hair wisps is amazing...

Melissa said...

The dress is so beautiful-- glam and yet looks really comfy, too. Love, love the pleats in the skirt. You look so beautiful-- I agree with Ellie that a little lipstick every day goes a long way towards making you feel more beautiful! You should frame that second shot for your hubs-- my hubs would brag all over town if he had one so lovely of me!

Paula - you look absolutely stunning - what a deal Shabby Apple got asking you to do the review :) They should put your pics up on their website, they're catalog worthy

Stacy of KSW said...

Ok, just went to the site to see the dress and nothing against the doll they have modeling it but you look 100x better in it :) They really should update the listing with your pics or better yet pay you to model their line
