One of my favorite things to receive as a Christmas gift and a staple on my holiday gift guide, aside from tech toys, is shoes and clothes and that is why Shabby Apple is top on my list of holiday must haves. To me, almost nothing beats the feminine silhouettes, simple charm and sophistication of vintage fashion. This is why I have several vintage inspired pieces from Shabby Apple. The quality is high and the price is reasonable.
Recently, I received two beautiful new dresses from Shabby Apple. The Mrs. Robinson and the Truman. I love their simple lines and the fact that they both can be dressed up for brisk autumn nights on the town and dressed down for casual days apple picking or shopping with your little ones.
Mrs. Robinson is grey with white cuffs and collar. It looks very demure but the name suggests anything but. Mrs. Robinson makes me think of subtle sexiness, class and sophistication and that made it my number one choice this holiday season. It is loose yet clings to your body in all the right places.
- Fitted Bodice with A-line Skirt
- On Seam Pockets with Elbow Length Sleeves
- Key Hole Opening at Front Neck a
- Ponte De Roma
- 97% Polyester 3%Spandex
- Machine Wash Cold, Line Dry, Iron Low Heat
- Made in the USA
My other pick was the Truman. It is soft and lovely and, who am I kidding, the Truman makes me think of Truman Capote and all that amazing stories he wrote and that appeals to the writer in me. The Truman will transport you to a bygone era, where an author sits sipping coffee, leaving behind red lipstick like a memory while working on the next great novel. When I wear the Truman, I feel sexy, smart and interesting. Let’s be honest, I’m a mom to two little girls, I can use all the sexy, smart and interesting that I can get these days.
- Cowl neck dress with elbow length sleeves and self tie waist
- Available in black
- Sleeve hits above elbow and skirt hits just above knee
- Thick Poly/Rayon blend
- Machine wash cold and hang to dry
These were my two choices but the choice was almost impossible to make; there are so many amazing pieces available at Shabby Apple this holiday season. I’m sure there is something that you will love for yourself.
