I was sent a dress from Shabby Apple to review: Dresses from Shabby Apple
They have a new line of dresses called the Mad Hatter - check it out!
I was sent the "Alice" - I love it's color!! Here's the model's picture:
And now here's mine - - but first I have to tell you to ignore my hair - my blow dryer blew up (it shot sparks out of the cord end and tried to get me!) so when I showered this morning I thought I'd let it air dry and then flatten it - but it's 4pm and my thick hair and the rainy day means my hair is still damp - crazy!
Anyways, here ya go:
I was super impressed when I received the dress - I knew the bottom of the dress would have a lace overlay, but I didn't realize the bodice did too - it makes it really pretty. It fits perfectly in the waist but is a little big and loose in the bust - I blame mother nature, not Shabby Apple. I even have on my super-duper padded b-r-a and can't quite fill it out (not a big surprise). I might try taking in the pleats just a little.
I love the boatneck-ish neckline but how it's not falling of my shoulders or anything. The whole dress is lined and the overlay hangs past the dress with a scallop edge, which I love.
This is the dress that will be my Easter Dress - I think it's perfect for that!! So if you want to match me, go for it :)
But now I have a dilemma - - what shoes should I wear?!? I found a few options:
I think these would have been the top choice, but there's a black strap going across the ankle, and black doesn't really say "spring" and "Easter" - but I do like how they're nude with that pop of hidden color.
Next up, these are probably my least favorite but they're not bad - just maybe a little too casual??
And this shot has a couple of options - the one on the left is more strappy and shiny and maybe too dressy?? My favorite out of all of them is the one on the right - nude with a peep toe. The main shoe is patent (shiny) leather but the bow thing is suede-ish to add interest.
So, shoe thoughts??? Any of my choices work?? If you know what kind of shoe would be perfect for the dress, leave a comment with a link and I will for sure check it out. But remember I'm kind of cheap - I'm hoping for something under $40.
