  2. Love, love, love the Gondola dress and the Romas dress looks sooooo comfortable. I’m a HUGE Shabby Apple fan.

  3. Definitely Bethesda Fountain!

  4. The Last Empress reminds me of one of my favorite books/movies, The Painted Veil. Absolutely lovely!

  5. Wow, they’re all amazing! I’d be happy to take home one of everything, but I especially love the Champs Elysees.

  6. I LOVE GONDOLA & SHEEP MEADOW! Green + Stripes = <3<3<3 But if i were to win a dress I would get the Gondola. <3

  7. Creamsicle, in the little girl’s section! I love it!! My Diva would rock it! I love the women’s dresses too, but I’m pretty sure my big ol size 14 butt wont fit in them. :(

  8. I love the gondola dress! And my DVR is set – will have to be my night time TV as I’m heading to hickory for the furniture mart’s after-market sale :)

  9. I love me some Shabby Apple. I Narrowed it down to two. Gondola and Champs Elysees. Beautiful!

  10. oh goodness, i love so many of their dresses. so to name one, i’ll just say: b17 bombshell :) thanks for the chance!

  16. I love love love Penelope and Odysseus, but it’s so hard to choose a colour. I’d probably pick Green Tourmaline or Rhodolite.

  17. Shabby Apple is one of the neatest dress shoppes online. I really want GRAY FOX! I think that deep blue is so beautiful.

  18. I am torn between the “half dome” and “the boss.” I love Shabby Apple and really need an excuse to buy one of their dresses!

  29. WAIT I want to change my vote because I just realized they have MATERNITY dresses and I have been looking everywhere for something affordable and lovely for “wedding season” this summer (during which I will be increasingly huger). The adorable bright yellow “Fruitful” dress features some creative pleating and looks like it would make a great summer wedding dress for my pregnant belly. :)

    I like the entire South Pacific collection… Freshwater Pearl, Tropical Sunshine & more!

  39. I love cider. It looks perfect for work, church and family get-togethers.. but could probably dress it up for bridal showers, engagement parties, etc.

  40. I love Volcano At Midnight! It was so hard to pick just one. There are so many beautiful dresses.

  41. Having to pick one is nearly impossible. I truly want one of each, but my favorites today are the Chickaree and the Champs Elysees. I LOVE Shabby Apple!

    Molta Bella!!

  51. How am I suppose to pick a favorite!? There are so many gorgeous dresses! I will say MARSEILLES, but it was a very hard choice. I hope I win, I have always wanted a dress from shabby apple!

  52. Pick just one? That’s impossible! How about Trapeze. L’Ete or Sacred Falls to get started? :-)

  53. I pretty much *adore* everything they make, and with their popularity, I’m going to assume that I have a snowball’s chance in you-know-where at this thing! But here it goes anyways because I’m an optimist like that (c: Love, love, love the Spanish Steps dress, but the Gondola with the cute stripe skirt is oh-so-fabulous as well…and it’s no suprise that I already *love* them on FB…Fantastic giveaway Kate!

  54. I never win these things, and I can’t pick JUST ONE! My two favorites are:

    Marco Polo dress (but I have way too much black in my closet)
    Tres Jolie (LOOVE the green)

    I also think the Polo PP would be great if it were shorter.

  55. oh. my. goodness. i LOVE so many of them! The fifth ave. is absolutely awesome, that’s probably number one for me. but i’m going to say number two is Ming! Love them!!!

  56. Wow! I love everything! Thank you for introducing us to this site!! I have to say though, I love the chic, ladylike El Capitan – so modern and yet evocative of the best of 80s fashion. I’d pair it with some lemon yellow platforms and a big chunky yellow belt!

  57. I love the midnight garden dress – can’t afford it though so lets hope I can win it!

  58. I want that Gondola dress so bad! Green and Stripes, a made for me dress! Love Shabby Apple!

    I already “like” them on FB!

  59. It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but I loved the Primavera dress from the Roamin’ Holiday collection!

  62. love so many, especially the Champs Elysee dress and the red and white Baccimi dress!

  63. the Cleopatra is STUNNING, but for everyday I love The Ramble or Espina Bonita or Roma! or Balleria or Cayenne or Bianca or ….. Would be a hard choice!

  64. Love the Spanish Steps dress. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner I have coming up!

  82. Oh my goodness – we’re going to Paris in the Fall and the Champs Elysees from the oh la la collection would be perfect! I also adore the Cortez and Casablanca – amazing designs. Thanks for the post CG!

  83. I LOVE Shabby Apple. It was so hard to decide. I guess I’d have to say my fav is sheep meadow, it’s just me! Simple, and green and blue are my fav combos.

  84. Fifth Avenue. I have loved it for so long, but oh! (for a girl who never spends over $20 on any article of clothing) That price tag!

  85. Oh, wow! stunning dress collection :-)
    I’m going to have to say Azure Coast is my far! Back to looking

  86. I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS THE GIVEAWAY…. I love your blog…but I am also a HUGE fan of Shabby Apple…so excited about the giveaway! It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I SWOON over Fifth Ave.

  87. Oh! I have never been on Shabby apple! How have I not known about it? Gorgeous, love it! I want them all. I really liked the Spanish Steps, Billie (wiggle dress xoxo), Manager Director, plus about 25 more!

  88. There are so many gorgeous choices! I’m really loving the Bali Ha’i’! :)

  89. My favorite is the Conservatory Garden. So simple, so beautiful. Weekend appropriate and work appropriate. LOVE IT!

  90. Too many to choose from! The Trevi Fountain looks lovely, even more lovely if I could where it AT the Trevi Fountain :)

  91. I will take any (or all) of them! My favorite may be the l’ete from the classics collection.

  92. If I had to choose, I’d pick Sheep Meadow. My 2 favorite colors in a fun, flirty dress. But all of the dresses are fabulous and so reasonably priced!

  93. Love their website, and especially that you can find dresses based on your shape. Really hard to just pick one, but I would probably say Jade is my favorite.

  94. So many cute dresses! It’s hard to pick one, but I’d probably opt for one of the teal dresses, such as Sierra Nevada or Alto Sax.

  95. If I have to choose, I’d pick Sheep Mountain. My 2 favorite colors in a fun, flirty dress. But they are all fabulous and reasonably priced!

  96. Hey there! Following your great blog! Have a lot of shabby apple favorites…adore the Trevi Fountain,Sierra Nevada and Spanish steps!

  97. Too many cute dresses to choose from but I think the Fork-Tailed Devil is really cute.

  98. I love them all, but can totally see myself making the Azure Coast a wardrobe staple!

  99. If one of each isn’t an option (these are seriously cute dresses), I love the Billie and Gondola. I kind of want a re-do on my bridesmaid dresses now.

  100. I LOVE the Ferris Wheel; I’ve been eyeing it for a while now! It would be nice to win one!

  101. The Ramble and Carnival are both adorable but I think Ballerina wins as my favorite by just a hair.

  102. LOVE the Marco Polo dress and the L’ete. I see a wraparound dress in my future!

  103. Pina colada, North Shore, and Spanish steps are my favs! I love them all. SO CUTE!

  104. I can’t decide which I like more – Fork Tailed Devil or the Bethesda Fountain.

  105. I love the Bali Ha’i’ dress from their South Pacific line. I’ve had my eye on it for weeks!!

  106. I love all of them! Probably between the Mauna Kea, Sheep Meadow, and Gondola!

  107. GONDOLA!!!! I am in love with dress. I am going on a few trips around my late summer wedding (including my honeymoon) and this dress would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe but my bank account can’t afford such a beauty/heavy price tag. I would Style it with a pair of straw and orange leather wedges that I have.. LOVE LOVE!!!

  108. I love the Black Oak dress with that gorgeous petal detail around the top and bust!!! To die for!

    I also think their swim wear is pretty too! Beautiful one pieces!!!!

  109. That is a difficult choice. Love the breeziness of the Pina Colada and the Freshwater Pearl. We have been experiencing flooding in our part of the country and both of these names seem a fitting escape.

  110. My favorite (so hard to choose) was the Chickaree – my husband loves for me to wear brown and it just looks so fun :)

  111. I can’t pick my favorite, but it’s between the red fox, black oak, and sheep meadow dress! What a great giveaway!

  112. It’s hard to pick just one! I really like Slate, Ain’t She Sweet, and Fifth Ave.

  113. I’m having a hard time choosing a favorite, but I think I like the Sheep Meadow dress best. I’ve been keeping my eye on it for a while now, just hoping it will go on sale :).

  114. I love L’Opera. Its still my style, but a little different than what I would normally buy for myself. It’d be great for summer and fall weddings as well as date nights.

  115. Wow, so many beautiful ones. I really love the sheep meadow ad well as Penelope and Odysseus. Great giveaway, thank you!

    ~Jessica Lewis

  116. Love the Champs Elysees dress! It would be perfect for our summer getaway!

  117. looooooooooove shabby apple! my fav dress THIS WEEK is jacob’s pillow. *sigh* kristinmik at gmail

  118. There are so many i like! I think the Champs Elysees is my favorite though.

  119. How do you pick? I want them all!!!! I love the Veni Vidi Vici. Then, I can wear it and pretend I’m in Europe! I hope I win. I hope I win.

  120. Do I have to pick one? Top three? Primavera, Gondola, Jacob’s Pillow. . . . now if I could just have the body to go with it too :)

  121. There is absolutely no way I can pick just one favorite. The best I can do is narrow it down to three: Crouching Tiger for the office, Gondola for a day at the park with my boys, and Aurelia for dinner with my love. Thank you so much for sharing; I LOVE this website!!!!

  122. I can’t decide!! I think I like “Palatine Hill” the most (but Cayenne and Aurelia are giving that dress a run for its money!).

  123. Love Shabby Apple!! its so hard to pick a favorite, but i would say its a tie between the Bon Voyage Dress and V.P dress!!

  124. Oh my word! All of their dresses are so pretty. I don’t know how I could decide if I won. The Bali Ha’i’ is probably one of my top choices. Gorgeous stuff!

  129. I’ve been loving the Spanish Steps dress since they came out with it!

  130. I honestly don’t know how to pick just one. Gondola and Sierra Nevada are two that stand out to me.

  131. I love the gondola dress! It reminds me of being in Rome for my honeymoon last year :)

  132. Oh em geeeeee! I am in <3 with this site thank you for sharing, def will be peeping this site regularly! I love the Gondola and the scarlet dragon! AH-mazing!

  144. I absolutely love the Madison Ave dress. Its so classy, which is my middle name.

  145. Mariposa Grove … but they’re all so lovely I’d probably change my mind if I actually won one.

  146. Oh my gosh! I can’t even begin to pick one, haha. But I really like the North Shore or the Mauna Kea dress. So cute!

  147. I love the Spanish steps dress! Would work perfectly for one of the 7 weddings that I have this summer. Thanks!

  148. What beautiful dresses! I love how Shabby Apple allows you to sort for the most flattering fit for your body type. I couldn’t decide between “Azure Coast” or “Bon Voyage”–lovely how the names make me think of summer vacation too.

  153. I love all of the dresses, but the PENELOPE AND ODYSSEUS dress looks fun for summertime. :)

  154. I was actually just on this site last night drooling over the dresses as I tried to make a selection for summer wedding apparel. I fell in love with Champs Elysees.

  155. The Gondola dress would make getting dressed for work FAR MORE entertaining! I am trying to add more color to my wardrobe to….I have way too many black/gray dresses!

  156. I like the black rose maternity dress. I have no maternity ware yet, and this dress would be FAB!

  157. Never seen this store before! Love the TUILERIES dress! So perfect for summer! :)

  158. I love the Black Oak! I’m pregnant, so I would either choose that one for after baby comes or Odyssey for now!

  159. Never seen this store before! They have such cute stuff! Love the TUILERIES dress!

  160. Oh I love this website! I have never bought anything because it is clear out of my price range, but if I bought a dress, it would have to be ANCHORS AWAY or MADISON AVE. So classy!

  161. Ooh it’s so hard to choose just one :] I’ve narrowed it down to three : Bonheur, Champs Elysees, & Bon Voyage. They’re just all so pretty!

  162. Just shared this on Facebook! Didn’t mean to double post a comment, when I tried to post the first one-it said it was a duplicate and didn’t seem to go through so I changed it and posted again, turns out it went thru anyhow. Sheesh. Sorry about that! :(

  163. I love the Champs Elysees and L’Artiste. It was very hard to pick! Great giveaway!

  164. Thanks for featuring Shabby Apple. Love Aloha and Ink Brush and many others.

    best regards,

  170. GONDOLA dress! Maybe because I’m Italian but probably just because I LOVE stripes! :) Too cute for summer!

  171. I love the one called Trapeze and one that you have above – Penelope & Odysseus

  172. Can I have a skirt instead? I love the Izzie! What a great little piece – easy to dress up or down. Perfect for work or a date night with the hubs. Love it!

  173. I love love LOVE L’Artiste!! my second choice is Fifth Avenue. So had to pick just one!

  174. I love the Marco Polo dress! But, everything by Shabby Apple is gorgeous!

  177. Hi Kate,

    Quite lovely.

    No, I shan’t be rising at 3 am. for The Royals. I don’t do 3 am unless I’m forced by a baby to give birth at that uncivilzed hour. There isn’t enough coffee in North America to wake me, either. I have total faith that it shall be covered by every network. For endless days going forward, I will be able to see it, and then not be able to avoid it for endless days after…..

    I AM DANG curious about Kate’s dress, however!!! I’ll send you my cell number if you’d like to give a detailed report. Let’s see-is that 1 am your time?? You might as well stay up!:)


  178. I’ve coveted Shabby Apple dresses for years but sadly the hubby-in-law-school budget hasn’t allowed for it yet. Maybe this will be an early birthday present?!?! Love love love the Sacred Falls and the Bonheur!

  179. I’ve loved Shabby Apple for years and would LOVE to have one of their gorgeous dresses! I’m a huge fan of Ingrid!!

  180. I have my 40th college reunion this July. PLEASE pick me, I love MARCO POLO. Actually, I love lots of them, but for my AARP body–this is perfect. I need some confidence seeing people I haven’t seen since 1971.

  181. I love the Piazza Navonna. It looks so comfortable and cute! What an awesome website! I would love to win one. My oldest is graduating from high school and I could show up in style.

  182. Wow, that was so hard to choose. I like the Pina Coloda dress. I think it would hide a lot of my flawed areas. Did you check out there bathing suits too? So gorgeous! Thanks so much for the chance.
