A Not Too Shabby Apple Win

I enter many blog giveaways and now I can say that there is nothing more exciting than actually winning one because I did.  A couple months ago, I entered The Bargain Hunter Extraordinaire’s Shabby Apple giveaway and won a Shabby Apple dress.  Yes!  I was really excited about that giveaway and the win because I’ve been admiring  the dresses at Shabby Apple for over a year.

The dress I won is called Ahoy!, a green cotton voile dress with a turquoise bow belt.  

Here’s the dress worn with its bow belt.

Since I am not a huge fan of bows, I’ve been wearing the dress with a stripe scarf worn as an obi belt.

This dress is so versatile with its classic silhouette, taking me from a summer classroom to my favorite spot for brunch on the weekend.

Dress—Shabby Apple

Obi belt—Scarf via The Limited

Shoes—Kanna via Marshalls

    Really cute dress and you look fantastic in green! I've been wanting to place an order at shabby apple and think I probably should do it now before summer is over!

    I loved the dress in the first pic, but when I saw the scarf, I got excited…I have the same one! I really like how you used it as a belt!

    @Sing: How cool! I can't wait to see what you do with yours. Mine isn't quite perfect yet. I ended up sizing up because the waist was too snug on the first dress that I got. The larger size, however, was too big on the top. I also think I am going to hem it just a bit.

    @Allie: Thanks! I don't why I don't like bows. I had to find a substitute for the belt and my scarf was the only thing I had with a color similar to the original belt.

    @Amina: Thanks, Amina!

    @B.Inspired: Thanks for saying that. I stay away from this color because I am not so sure it works so well on me.

    @Kish: Isn't that Limited scarf gorgeous? I will lookout for you rocking yours.

    @Capis: Thanks mama Capis!

    Oooh, love the complimentary colors of the scarf (and the bow, to be honest).
