Ahoy!

I had so much fun doing the giveaway with Shabby Apple a few months ago of course I had to say yes to doing my own review of one of their fabulous dresses!

For those of you who weren't around back then, let me tell you a little about Shabby Apple. They make amazing dresses that are vintage inspired silhouettes with modern updates! I'm in love with so many of their dresses! Let me give you an example with the Ahoy dress!



It says the dress hits above the knee but on my 5'4" frame is hits just below the knee. I'm going to get it shortened so it is right above my knee which I think will make it more flattering and help me look a little taller (hey a girl can use all the help she can get!).



The fit guide also says it falls in the fits generously size chart. By this chart I would have been a small, in reality I could have gone to the XS and had it fit my waist and hips better but there's no way the top would have fit. The Small for me was a tiny bit tight at the top (to be expected with my broad swimmers shoulders, even though I haven't swam competitively in 11 years they haven't shrunk any!) My waist is 26" and my hips/rump at the widest part are 39" the small was large in both these areas on me, but not so much that I think it's unflattering or anything, just a few quick stitches and I shortened the belt so it would hold the dress in and it fits great now :) Plus lets face the facts now it lets me eat a little more and still fit comfy!

Looks like they are having a summer sale right now with 20% off most things! Bonus! Enter code SUMMER20 at checkout (not sure when this ends though, it says it at the top of all the pages in red type as I write this up).
