Snap Dragon Dress by Shabby Apple

Have you heard of Shabby Apple? If not, you are in for a real treat. Shabby Apple is an online store with an amazing selection of gorgeous vintage inspired clothing. It's so hard for me to look throughout their site without pulling out my debit card and spending all of my money.

I was recently contacted by the lovely people over at Shabby Apple to do a dress review. When looking through their gorgeous collection, I was immediately drawn to the Snap Dragon dress. Not only is the dress absolutely stunning but it also has buttons near the chest area. It's so hard to find vintage dresses that button up (for easy nursing access).

I looked on their sizing chart and realized that my measurements were right in between 2 different sizes. I also read on the dress' review that some ladies who previously purchased the dress claimed that the sleeves were too small. Shabby Apple promptly emailed me back and had 2 girls from their store try on the dress and told me that they both didn't think the sleeves ran small. They also sent me both sizes of the dress and a pre-paid shipping label so I could return the size that didn't fit. Their customer service is above and beyond and they are more than willing to answer any questions you may have before purchasing (;

When I received the dresses I tried the smaller of the two on first and it fit perfectly. I then went to the post office and shipped off the other dress and planned a few different ways to style this dress. I didn't want to over-do it with accessories or layers because I wanted you guys to see the dress. Luckily, the weather has been unusually warm the last couple of weeks so I didn't need to layer up or anything (;

 This dress is extremely comfortable and fitted in all of the right places. I personally like that it isn't fitted around the hips since it's usually hard for me to find dresses that fit my hips and upper body. I personally think I have large upper arms for my body and was a bit worried that the dress would be too tight around my arms. Fortunately, the sleeves fit perfectly along with the rest of the dress. This is easily my new favorite dress, I love everything about it.. the bright colors, the fit, and that it looks like something that would have been worn in the 50's.

Head on over to Shabby Apple and take a look around. They have clothing for all different shapes and sizes. You can also follow them along on Facebook and Instagram for sneak peaks of new arrivals and specials.
