Giveaway: Shabby Apple Dress

Fridays, giveaways, and guest posts are some of my favorite things so that makes today an exceptionally great day!
Let's start with this weekend's giveaway which comes from the lovely online dress company, Shabby Apple.

Shabby Apple has a variety of chic, stylish dresses that I would LOVE to get my hands on (or my body in?). They're super affordable and most of the styles I could wear to work, which is a huge plus.
Here are some of my favorites...
This weekend, Shabby Apple is offering to one super lucky Down and Out Chic reader, the 90 words Per Minute dress.
This dress is ahhhhhdorable and comes in the cheeriest of turquoise shades.

This dress is perfect for the end of summer, but throw on some boots and a jacket and it would easily transition to the fall.

Now, only one person can win the dress, but Shabby Apple has been kind enough to offer any Down and Out Chic reader 15% off a purchase! Just type "downandoutchic15off" at checkout. So, how to win the dress? Rules for entry (up to three possible entries!)
1) Leave a relevant comment on this post after visiting Shabby Apple.
2) If you're a follower of Down and Out Chic you get a second entry! Simply say, "I'm a follower."
3) Chat about this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter and leave a comment telling me so. Be sure to leave separate comments, or they won't count!

Felicia, from Dalipstickbandit, did a little Q+A with me and the thing I love about Felicia's interview were her super thoughtful questions. You'll have to check it out to see what I mean. Felicia is kind, honest, sexy blogger who knows her swank and her makeup (and she expresses her self with an impeccable writing ability!). If you don't already, I think you'll adore her blog as much as I do! Thanks Felicia (look at her cute collage!)

Read the interview here.
Happy weekend everyone!

This dress is right up my alley! It looks like something one of the MadMen girls might wear, which is totally what I'm into right now. The Madison Avenue dress girl really reminds me of Trudy Campbell.

I am absolutely in love with Shabby Apple! What an incredible dress collection.

Great interview with Felicia! You really are such a sweetie. I loved your definition of sexy: "Sexy, for me, and I mean this in all sincerity, is when I can see someone's goodness..."

The Cottage Cheese said...

P.S. loyal follower here!

I really need a new turquoise dress. My black boots are lonely ;)

christina said...

I have to say I've been a fan of Shabby Apple forever, but I don't have a dress from there yet. I'm a huge turquoise fan, so I think this one would be perfect in my closet.

Great interview, btw. Love it.
