Shabby Apple Nine to Five Dress Review

When Shabby Apple contacted me to do a review for them I was no less than thrilled! One look at their dresses and I was hooked.

It was like Christmas when my dress came in the mail! It was wrapped so neatly in some olive and lime tissue paper. I hardly wanted to destroy the cute packaging, but how could I not tear right through it to get to my dress!

My first dress was actually the Anchors Away, but I did not notice the “This dress FITS SMALL a slightly snug, ‘true to size'” in my ordering excitement. I put on the dress and LOVED it, but they do not lie when they say it fits snug. I worried that when I washed it, it would become a little too snug. So I sent the dress back (it cost like $2) and they sent me the Nine to Five Dress.

When I pulled it out of the packaging I was a little scared at first. It was so not what I would have chosen. I was worried I would look like a potato sack. It was a lot of Jersey and I was scared that my tummy bulge would be out for everyone to see. The horror. To my wonderful surprise, the minute I put it on I fell in love! The color and details were amazing! I am letting someone else choose for me from now on!

The hubs went on and on about how HOT I looked. Not a bad response to receive. I wore it to church on Valentine’s Day and I have never received so many compliments including “You’re looking great!” and “I love your dress, you look amazing and tiny!” I had heads turning as I walked down the hall. One of my friends said, “I love all the details. it makes it look so modern.”

Did you like my little fashion show right there? Add a belt, wear it plain, mix it up. Did I mention the comfort level? It was like walking around snuggled in the softest, yet nicely breathable blanket. I could live in this dress, though I would take it off to wash it once in a while.

So now that I have expressed my deep and undying love for my Shabby Apple Five to Nine dress, I would like to do what I call a little Shabby Apple runway show. Here is a little preview of some of my faves (click on the pics to be taken to that item’s page):

    You look fab! And what tummy bulge? Impossible with how tiny you are. My fave is that purple dress in the top right of your “fashion show” collage. So pretty!
