Shabby Apple Dress Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

I have seen ads for Shabby Apple all over the internet, and have really loved the unique vintage look of their dresses, tops, shoes, and even swimsuits. These are styles that I have never really worn, so I was looking forward to picking out a new special occasion dress. I attend live theatre performances once or twice a month, and I love dressing up. Since I don’t always want to wear the same dresses each time I go, I am always looking for something fresh and new to wear.

Being offered the choice of any dress from Shabby Apple was a fashionista’s dream come true. Believe me when I say I looked at every single option, had debates between several favorites, and finally went with the dress that I have visited and admired many times on the Shabby Apple website: Star Studded (regular price: $94.00; currently on sale for $47.00).

Shabby Apple Dress Review

Metallic silver is one of my favorite shades and it makes the dress both eye catching and unique. The boatneck line took a bit of getting used to; I prefer lower cuts to the neckline but I was willing to try something new simply because I adored the cut and color of the dress so much on the Shabby Apple website. At 5’3”, the dress seems to be a bit long for me; I would definitely recommend it for someone who is a few inches taller than I am. What I love most about this particular dress, however, is that it is machine washable. As a busy mom, I don’t have much time (or extra money) to spend taking a dress to be dry cleaned.

This dress is especially nice for curvy women like myself; there is a bit of stretch to it, and I didn’t feel at all too confined in it. I was able to move around comfortably and without moving awkwardly. Because of the material, though, the dress does making a swishing sound when I walk. I found the sizing chart to be very accurate and helpful, and didn’t have to worry about shipping my dress back for a replacement. However, Shabby Apple does offer free exchanges if your dress is not the right size or style for you!

One of the best features of the Shabby Apple website is the ability to search for clothing based on your body size, something that I overlooked when I first began browsing the website. The next time I place an order with Shabby Apple, I will take advantage of this service and maybe even consult their Live Help.

Overall, I am pleased with the quality and unique fashions that Shabby Apple has to offer. If you are looking for a style that will make you stand out and be noticed, start shopping today.
