WIWW - Sunday Dress Edition (and GIVEAWAY!)

 Be sure to see the bottom of the post - Shabby Apple Dress giveaway alert- - 

For me, Sunday is a dressy occassion - either skirt or dress.  So what to wear??

This past Sunday was close to Valentine's Day, so I went with this pink sweater thing - it has a fur trim around the neck and wrists, so it's a little out-there for me.  I feel like a sophisticated lady with fur trim.  But I tried to roll with it - I added my pearl necklace.

Sweater - from my mom, who found in on sale years ago - $5? - I hardly ever wear it, but something about it just won't let me get rid of it.
Skirt - ?? - I think it's too big and makes me look hippy, but I think gray and pink go together (right?) so I wore it
Black Boots - walmart, $35, 5+ years ago

Oh, I just remembered I have another gray skirt - The Snowball Skirt - maybe I should have worn it?

Sometimes I get stuck in a skirt rut - so I've been trying to wear more dresses lately.  These are a couple of the newer dresses I have in my closet  - - - others I've had since high school - really.
I like my newer dresses and think I should keep going in that direction.  Dress shopping can be so intimidating though!  But I've found an online shop I'm loving - Shabby Apple.  So I'm really excited to offer you a chance to win a dress from them.

I haven't tried a Shabby Apple dress yet, but I'm on the brink.  Did you know you can shop by body type? You answer a few questions and it points out dresses right for your body - that's the kind of fashion help I need!


A few from the list recommended for me that I love:

This is Amy Butler Fabric - of course I love it!

A littler dressier than I normally go for, but I really like it:

Shouldn't I own a "little black dress"??
Bette D.
Bette D. 

So, what can you win?? - the L'Amour Dress - cute, right?? - you know I love green - really wish I could win!
