Shabby Apple dress review and fashion linkup
I have heard of Shabby Apple many times from my fellow blogger friends. First impression? They have so many cute dresses with a colorful and vintage vibe. If you know me and are familiar with my style, you can tell this online store and I are a perfect match. 😉
For a super petite woman like me, the fit and flare dress usually is the best choice to flatter my 5 foot frame when I shop online. I can pull off a maxi but I prefer to try those on to make sure I’m not tripping over it. Recently I have been focusing on collecting more colorful pieces into my wardrobe. When I saw this Nutcracker Dress Pink my eyes were so happy!
I loved the color very much but I was worried because the material looked pretty stiff to me based on the photos on their website. But it was simply too cute to pass so I still decided to give it a try. After a week, I received it and couldn’t wait to try on. My first impression was that the material is pretty stiff as I had guessed. And the shiny surface feels a little cheap. I was not very pleased and was thinking I had made a mistake.
But after a little care from my steamer, it became a very different dress. The glossy surface I was worried about now feels fancy instead of cheap. And as I wore the dress for a little while I now understand why they use this kind of material. Only this stiff feeling fabric can hold the flare shape without additional lining layers beneath as is the traditional way. I am happy again. 🙂 I am wearing a size 8 for this dress, and it’s just a little bit tight as you can see, but I am working to lose some holiday weight. 😉 Please note, I’m a professional fashion blogger so don’t try this at home! You may end up with a lot of ill fitting clothes.
Congrats to Andrea D for the winner of Nicole Lee Wallet. 🙂
