Win the Perfect Holiday Dress from Shabby Apple


*GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*
Looking for the perfect holiday dress? 

Bombarded by excessive shimmer, glimmer and fluffpuffery in the malls, this is one annual tradition that typically gives me a serious case of  the "bah-humbugs".   Why is it so hard to find a chic little dress that is well made, affordable and versatile enough to outlive the mistletoe and the expiration date on the eggnog?

Well, truth be told, it's not.  And you don't even have to brave the crowds and at the mall.  Shabby Apple is an online boutique offering beautiful, classic, quality and affordable women's dresses.   Their vintage-inspired designs capture the elegance and sophistication of bygone eras ~ smartly updated and fit to flatter.

from the "Tinsel Town" Collection


from the "South Pacific" Collection

Whether you'll be making merry at a gala evening event, or escaping the winter chill for sunnier climes and sandy shores, the dresses in these collections will take you "from holiday housewarming to spring fashion week with just a change of shoes." Versatile elegance -- what could be more chic?

I'm so thrilled that my friends at Shabby Apple have generously offered to give one lucky Rook No. 17 reader the stunning Bali H'ai Dress:

WIN THIS!
"A simple shift takes on a new form with a lei of tucks, folds and petal-like ruffles along the rounded scoop neck of the Bali Ha'i dress.  Princess seams and careful tailoring keep the shape classic, and the cap sleeves and deep orchid color make it...(a)... perfect stand-alone piece.  This dress is made from a lightweight, delicate fabric." $78
