Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway

It's been quite some time since we've had a giveaway here on D&OC and when Shabby Apple contacted me to see if I were interested in collaborating again, I knew it was high time for a little pick me up around here.  I adore this company's take on fitted silhouettes for women that easily translate from work to nighttime without all the fuss of worrying that your hemline is too short or that you're exposing too much up top.  Comfortable and classy, there's always something I want to get my hands on at Shabby Apple.
The winner gets her (or his if you're trying to win it for a lady friend) choice of these two dresses, available in sizes xxs-xl:
Tuxedo III: a chocolate brown linen dress with an adorable ruffled front placate, high ruffled neck, and mini cap sleeves.  This linen and rayon blend is perfect for the summer.  $62 value.




















OR
Oh La La: Nautical red + white boat neck jersey top with 3/4 sleeves tucks into a high waisted black A-line skirt that has pockets!  The top is made of jersey knit and the bottom is a cotton/spandex blend.  $76 value. 




















*Entering is easy. Simply leave me a comment and let me know which dress you see yourself in.
2 bonus entries:
If you're a follower of D&OC you get an extra entry. Just make sure to leave a separate comment.
Talking about this giveaway also gets you an extra entry.  Tweet, blog, or Facebook about it and let me know you did. Again, make sure to leave a separate comment! Winner will be picked next Tuesday.
Thank you Shabby Apple and good luck friends.  I'm taking the day off from posting to catch up on your lovely blogs; I'm so far behind it's embrassing. 
xo,
Christina
Receive 10% off at Shabby Apple with coupon code "Downandoutchic10off." 
*giveaway is open to US readers only. I'm sorry international readers, but I'll get you next time :)

Marilyn said...

Oh my god. I would LOVE to win this. No joke, I was just visiting their website and lusting after this dress:

http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-616-tuileries.aspx

I bookmarked it and every few days I keep checking to make sure it's still there.

Anyway, of the dresses offered on giveaway (thanks, btw!!), the Oh La La is my favorite. I love it (and the black/white counterpart) so much that last week I recreated a cheap version with a striped boatneck tee and pencil skirt.

So maybe I would chose the tuxedo? I don't know. Decisions!

Very hard...but the "Oh, La, La" dress is different from anything I have, so I might "need" to go with that... :)

I am crazy about Shabby Apple's entire Paris line. They're all stunning. And when I heard (via a friend's blogpost) that D&OC was giving away The Oh La La, I had to enter! This dress is just phenomenal.

And yes, I'm a new follower. SO sad I didn't know about D&OC before now...
