The lovely folks at Shabby Apple recently sent me a dress to review.
Let me tell you, when I agreed to review a dress, I was SUPER skeptical. I mean, SUPER DUPER skeptical. First of all, I'm a bigger girl. So I just knew that the dress would fit me all wrong. Secondly, the dress I chose was $86: the green floral Mariposa Grove dress from the Yosemite Collection. I would NEVER spend that on a dress for myself. And lastly, I don't usually wear dresses. Seriously, in the last 3 years I have worn a dress 2 times. And once it was to a funeral.
Why don't I wear dresses? Because, like I said before, they usually fit me all wrong.
So, the dress arrived, very neatly packaged in soft-colored tissue paper. I immediatly tried the dress on, ready to be disappointed & give my negative statements. I anticipated the sleeves that would squeeze my arms tight, the waist that would make my figure look all lumpy, the sucking in of the gut, the whole sausage in a tube scenario.
But I was SOOOOO surprised. It fit! And perfectly!
I ran out & purchased a mustard colored belt & tights. I know, crazy color combo. The Mr.'s eyes are still bugging out of his head. But, I like color. It makes me happy.
My friend, Susan, & I went out by the lakes to take pics by the trees. It was SUPER cold, which is why I also added the black cardigan. (Tights, belt, shoes & cardigan are all from Target.)
While browsing the Shabby Apple website, I loved the super detailed pictures. But more than that, I loved that they give you help finding a perfect fit to flatter your shape. Use that tool AND the sizing charts to help you find the perfect women's dresses, little girl's dresses or maternity dresses!
This is my new party dress.
I love it.
