Wedding season is just about over this year for us. We only have two left to go. We really enjoy weddings, and this year we traveled to Mexico, Texas, Pennsylvania and Idaho to go to them! Since it has literally been wedding after wedding for the past three years, I have gotten bored with my closet’s dress selection!
When I was looking into a new dress for a wedding we are attending in September, I found some really adorable dresses at an online shop called Shabby Apple.

- MY OPINION ON SHABBY APPLE
What more can I say. I love this dress.
The dress shipped quickly, and came wrapped in tissue paper with a Shabby Apple sticker seal. It was very professional. The packaging was so nice, that you could easily give this as a gift. When I pulled it out of the wrapping, I noticed the color of the dress was more like the last 3 photos on the product page, not like the photos of the model. It was more of a matte purple than a shimmery color. It was still beautiful.After trying on the lovely Bali Ha’i dress, I knew this was a dress I could wear again and again. This dress is just stunning. I feel so sexy in this sleek dress. It has a high scoop neck line, not baring a lot of skin and it is still flattering due to the form fitting design. I got a size smaller than I typically would based on Shabby Apple’s recommendations, and I am happy I did. I loved that they suggested sizing information. Not a lot of companies do this, probably due to a poor reaction from some that don’t agree! But I do agree, they were right on! The size is a little snug, but fits well. Luckily there is some give too.
Overall, the color is gorgeous, the neckline is fun and unique and the style is versatile for formal events or less formal events. I could wear this to a wedding, or out to a happy hour with friends. It can be paired with heels or flats, bangles or a belt. I have a feeling I am going to be wearing this dress often!
