Some time ago, Shabby Apple emailed me and asked if I would like to be their affiliate partner. Of course I said yes! I have been loving Shabby Apple clothing, especially the dresses, and as I'm an amateur blogger who blogs purely for fun, it is very important for me to only have sponsors or affiliates whose products I truly like. Shabby Apple's dresses are flirty, feminine, and modest. They feel vintage, yet they are modern.
My parents are visiting my brother in the US this fall, so I thought I would order some products from my favorite online stores, because they can send them over to my brother's address, then my parents will take them back to Indonesia later on. From Shabby Apple, I planned to order this One For My Baby Dress from the Twin Palms collection. I can't tell how to call this particular color exactly. Seafoam green? Mint green? Light turquoise blue? Tifanny blue? I notice that the color, and the chiffon pleated skirt and white collar detail are all very popular right now at various clothing stores here. Indonesia only have rainy and dry season, so I can wait until fall to wear this supposedly summer dress.
Well, what do you know... My parents just got back from Zhang Jia Jie, China (if you watch the movie Avatar, Zhang Ja Jie is the original place where the real Avatar mountains do really existed here on Earth, just google for it), and Mom got me several lovely things, including this dress.
It's quite similar to the Shabby Apple dress that I wanted to order! I also saw a similar style at Zara and Dorothy Perkins recently. I love all the neat details: the scalop collar with white piping, the smaller polkadot at the top and bigger polkadot for the skirt, the tiny pleats, the puffy sleeve, and how feminine and flowy it is. I especially love the color!
The only downside of this dress is, my husband thinks it looks like a house dress and not very stylish. "You look like a 50s housewife!" he said. I cheerfully replied "Well, that's the theme on this look!" He shrugged, kissed me on the cheek and said "It's not my favorite look on you, but you always look lovely in anything. Especially since you obviously love the dress." ^_^Shabby Apple dress, visit their website now. The are having August sale going on, with a 20% off many of their clothing collections. I'm thinking of ordering another dress, since I already got this one from Mom.
