If you haven’t heard of Shabby Apple, then you’ve been missing out. I was recently introduced to them and I fell in love with all their designs. Shabby Apple offers affordable, hip attire perfect for work or a day to play. This company is one you definitely want to check out! Their styles are flattering for all body types, and they have a little something for everyone -- including kids!
After years of not being able to find stylish dresses that covered enough skin to make you feel comfortable (without wearing a tank top, cardigan or long slip), owners Emily and CK decided to do something about it. They visited trade shows, marketplaces and designer studios only to discover the problem was not that department stores weren't buying the right dresses, but that designers weren't designing them. Shabby Apple is proud to offer you fantastic dresses that allow you to look fabulous, without having to compromise anything else.
I was recently given the opportunity to review one of their dresses, so I chose the the Forbidden City Dress.
The dress features a scoop neck and cap sleeves offset the voluminous top which is cinched at the natural waistline, and descends into a pocketed tulip skirt. Made of 100% crepe de chine, the dress is finished with French seams and baby rolled hems.
The pictures do not do this dress justice! It looks absolutely amazing on and the feel of the dress is wonderful.The only thing I would change on this dress is the zipper. The zipper on the back is not very appealing because it exposed. I would have rather seen it in black and a little thinner or covered by fabric. Apparently I was the only one that felt this way, as I have never received so many compliments on a dress as I did with this one. What I love most about the Forbidden City dress are the pockets! Although the pockets are not very deep, they are indeed functional and add a little flair to the dress. Fabulous!
Not only do Shabby Apple have a stylish line of dresses, but they also are committed to helping women live as well! Shabby Apple Dresses shares 5% of its profits with Unitus, an organization working to bring life-changing micro-loans to thousands more of the world's working poor.
