Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway, WOO!

Have you heard of Shabby Apple? Let me tell you girls, this shop is amazing. When I first stumbled upon it a few years ago, I immediately wanted to snatch up every single dress for myself because they’re all just so lovely and feminine. Being that I’m pregnant and a freaking WHALE of a woman right now, I was so excited to see that there is actually a maternity section with some super adorable dresses as well! Options for us all!

Pop on over and take a look when you have a chance… it’s like floating through a pretty, ruffly dream.

Okay, now on to business. Shabby Apple has sweetly offered to give away their Five to Nine dress to one of my readers!

Is that not the most adorable little black dress you’ve ever seen? I know. I’m actually quite jealous that one of you gets to own it and wear it and be fabulous in it, I’m not gonna lie.

So what do you have to do to enter? Just leave one comment on this post. Tell me anything. Your New Year’s resolutions. What you ate for breakfast. Introduce yourself if you’re new around these parts. Shower me with adoring compliments… I don’t care!

Tweet the following for an additional entry:

  1. Ive been lurking around here for a while and never commented. Nothing like a giveaway to bring out all the lurkers!

  2. Oooo, thank you for introducing me to this fabulous store! I would love to win that dress & take my work wardrobe up a notch. :)

  3. After being on vacation since Christmas Eve, I’m so not ready to be back in the swing of things. But this dress brightened my day!

  4. i’m in love with that dress and the store! i’m from brazil and would love to be able to win.. please tell me i can be the winner!

  5. Another longtime lurker here. That LBD is the perfect motivation to get back into pre-Christmas shape!!

  6. I just stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago when googling “felt flower tutorials” and I was hooked. I love it!

  7. My new years resolution is to roll out of bed earlier so I can actually try to look somewhat attractive for my morning classes! So I should get this dress to help me out, no?

  8. Love Shabby Apple! Just ordered my first dress from there – how did I not find this site before?

    Woot woot for cute maternity dresses too!

  9. I love the dress!! So cute :D

    One of my new year’s resolutions is to go on more dates with my husband this year. Meaningful dates, not all spur of the moment kind. (I have also tweeted!)

  10. Literally the only thing I’ve ever won was two tickets to see The Backup Plan, a friggin’ Jennifer Lopez movie. I would love for my first good prize to be this dress! I’d wear it everywhere!

  11. LOVE Shabby Apple! Thanks, Morgan, for sharing the SA love with us. My NY’s resolution is to have a healthy pregnancy/baby in May. That’s all I’m focusing on in 2011! :)

  12. I just ate a Snickers (fun size) with peanut butter in the middle. Have you seen these? They are a regular Snickers bar with some peanut butter in there. I prefer my regular Snickers, but this wasn’t so bad that I spit it out or threw the rest away.

  13. Love that dress!

    Random thing to tell you…right now I am watching Finding Nemo and pumping (tmi?). Oh the joys of motherhood :)

  14. What a fantastic giveaway! I love the weekly photos of your pregnancy. What a lovely documentation of this special time with your new child.

  15. Cute cute cute! I saw Shabby Apple a year ago and I’ve always loved their clothes. That dress is adorable, and I could use a little black dress for the new job that I’ll hopefully be getting in the next few months :)

  16. I adore that dress, wow! And I love reading your blog – such witty humor. It makes me relive my pregnancies :) And I love love love your tutorials.

  17. Does it come in a size Nothing Looks Good On A Post Baby Belly? If not if I win it I could hang it up and stare at it and sigh dreamily and then swear at my sister whenever she tries to steal it.

  18. Lurker that could not resist! This dress is amazing!

    So, I need to tell you something, eh? Well, right now I am drinking probably the best (nonalcoholic) drink in the world…Passion Tea Lemonade! (Doesn’t hurt that it is a beautiful shade of pink!)

  19. This is my entry! I looked at the website and was very pleasantly surprised to see that they have plus size dresses. Also, the dress you’re giving away “fits generously”, so I think I can pull off an XL. Yay!

  20. They have the most adorable dresses I think I’ve ever seen! Love it!
    ..and you my dear are no whale of a woman. You are the cutest darn pregnant lady I have just about ever seen.

  21. You are definetly not a whale! When I was pregnant I could sit in a chair and rest my belly on the seat if I could get my legs open. But I guess thats what got me in the situsation in the first place! oops!

  22. I can finally fit in to my pre prego clothes 8 weeks after having my baby girl and I would love to wear this dress out on a HOT date with my hubby!

  23. My new year resolution is to stop cussing like a sailor. In fact, i’ll probably make that sailor blush from all the cuss words I say/make up on a regular basis.

  24. Firstly, I need to get this out of the way. I don’t know if I just haven’t been to your comments section in a while, or you’ve redone it, or I’m just not remembering. Either way, it’s fabulous. I’m jealous.

    Anyway, the LBD is pretty fabulous too. I don’t know that I’ll be able to pull it off quite as well since, after the holiday season, I feel much like you do… and I’m NOT pregnant. But I’d still rock it. And I’d get a lot of use because I don’t have a go-to LBD at the moment. So, basically, pick me! Be jealous. :)

  25. oh good lord i need that dress!!

    do compliments increase my chances? because i just found you by way of clever girl goes blog and you have one of the cutest prego bellies i’ve ever seen :) (no really, you do.)

  26. Ooh, so pretty!! I’d feel like such a real woman if I wore this about town. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!! My boyfriend just got named Godfather to his new nephew, exciting!!

  27. I love Shabby Apple. I’ve been dying over the marseille dress for awhile. I am really excited to hear they have maternity dresses, since cute ones are SO hard to find. I’ll be able to justify one next time around- yea!!!

  28. I love Shabby Apple’s dresses because they have sleeves, they’re not low cut and they’re long enough! They definitely fill a niche in the market.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  29. OOOH! Me, pick me!! I love Shabby Apple! And you know that we have our baby boys that sort of freak us out due around the same time! That should be enough to win, right? :)

  30. Hello!
    I didn’t make any resolutions, but I love how this dress looks, so I’d make a resolution to wear it every day!
    Have a great year!

  31. I love Shabby Apple and so glad to see them getting some recognition. Happy new year. Always look forward to reading Mrs. Priss.

  32. I’ve been making my way through your awesome tutorials! Thanks for sharing. :-) And I am IN LOVE with Shabby Apple. The cutest!

  33. I too have been reading your blog faithfully but had never commented! Love your posts and you look adorable with your pregnant little belly.

  34. I love Shabby Apple and I love that dress! So cute! I got lovely boots for Christmas and I am pretty sure they would go perrrrrfectly with that dress! Thanks for the giveaway!

  35. Oh my gosh! I am 26 weeks preggo w/ a little boy too and have been obsessively “window” shopping online for all the things I want to buy after I pop this little one out and that would be the perfect addition to my post-baby wardrobe :)

  36. Yes I love this dresssss! :) So adorable. Random fact of the day: I just got back from sitting in the SS office for two hours to change my name, and rewarded myself with a Starbuck for going through all that pain! :D

  37. Oh gosh, I swoon after those dresses all the time ^_^ So wonderful! (And I think one of my NY resolutions is just to make the most of this year! 2010 was pretty good, and I’m going to have a FABULOUS 2011!!)

  38. Oh hai! I’m new around here, but love your site. I’m a new lover of all things Anthropologie as well ;)! Pick me – I need wardrobe help!


    2. Sorry about the yelling; it’s been a long day.

    3. My random tid-bit of information is going to be the white-trash dinner Jay and I are planning on eating tonight: hot dogs and cheese wrapped up in crescent rolls. Don’t hate.

  40. hey! Adorable black dress :)
    my new years resolutions are
    – learn how to knit (I’ve started to work on it)
    – learn how to sew (working on acquiring a sewing machine)
    – be more comfortable with me :)

    I’d love the dress!!

  41. Oh I love Shabby Apple! And that dress is so cute! Thank you for hosting the giveaway–all the way from NC!

    Happy New Year!

  42. I just found out I’m pregnant and need a little pick-me-up from my frumpy state. I think you look great and am a little jealous that you’re almost finished being pregnant.

  43. Great website!
    The dress is beautiful I know my daughter-in-law would look fabulous in this dress…I hope I win it!

  44. Oh, man…that is a super-cute dress. I would feel oh so lucky if I could win it! Pick me, pick me!

  45. I’ve coveted that dress for months! I’ve heard it referred to as a “librarian” dress – which is my day job… mommy by night. I found your blog when searching for fabric flower templates and now read along.

  46. I would loooove to own that :) What a great dress!! Hmm… random fact for you- I love making huge bows for my hair. <3 there you go!

  47. I am a stay at home mamma and one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take better care of myself!

  48. Does showering you with compliments increase my chances of winning that dress!

    Well you’re adorable either way! Also, I LOVE shabby apple! I convinced my sister-in-law to get her bridesmaids shabby apple dresses just so I could have one!

  49. I’ve been following you for awhile! I love your blog! Good luck with the new baby!! I love Shabby Apple and would love to win that dress!!

  50. All I can think about right now is my baby girl starts daycare tomorrow. Tears. Lots of tears.

    Now I want this dress. Even though I can’t imagine picking her up from daycare, well, I wanna do it in this dress. With polka dot black tights.

    Thats all. I’ll go sulk now.

  51. i’ve been lurking for awhile…so this darling dress will bring me out of hiding. thanks for the great giveaway! :)

  52. Shabby Apple has such cute fashions! This would be a welcome addition to my wardrobe!

  53. clever girl sent me (us?) over here for this adorable dress, which IS way cute. much like the blog. thank goodness for google reader, i would never be able to remember all the cute blogs to check out…

  54. Okay, I’m confessing. I JUST found you today, added you to “That which inspires me” on my blog and I’m a little obsessed already! I’m going to link your flower hair pin with the singed edges today. I LOVE your blog. (Oh, and I had a Zone bar for breakfast…LOL)

  55. I’ve been a lurker for quite some time, always enjoy reading your posts but usually don’t comment…for some odd reason?
    New Years resolution – to stick to my word more!

  56. They have the cutest dresses everrrrr. I need to start wearing more dresses. I’m such a jeans and tee shirt gal. That needs to change!

  57. I am in LOVE with your blog! This is my 1st comment on your page, even though I laugh hysterically every time I get on here (Which brings snide looks from the male coworkers here… Psssh, whatever, boys…)
    Anyhow… My New Years resolution (On top of the normal ones, lose weight, exercise more, try not to kill my mother… etc…) Is to support my local businesses and community.

    The dress is absolutely fabulous (Not as fabulous as you, my darling, but still) So, heres to hoping I can start off my 2011 with a stunning black dress!


  58. That is so cute!! My resolution is to try to eat at least one vegetable every day, to set a good example for my son, who is on a no-vegetable kick.

  59. eeeek I want it! I need a LBD and I can wear it with the hot pink pumps I have been drooling over…..

  60. This dress is exactly what I see myself wearing in my heart…as opposed to the jeans that have become my daily wardrobe. This year I vow to enjoy more high teas with my sister and to wear something that would take my hubby’s breath away (We just celebrated our 15th anniversary). This dress is so classic and ladylike it would be appropriate on both occasions. I would feel like Audrey Hepburn and who wouldn’t love that! I love your blog, I have been following you for quite awhile and I enjoy when you share your amazing crafting skills with us. Thanks!!!

  61. Hi! I ran across your blog…can’t remember how. But, I LOVE IT! I went back and read some of your posts, (I do that when I run across new blogs. To make sure they aren’t just a super boring blogger that I never want to read no matter how bored I am at work). You are adorable pregnant and hilarious!

    Anyway, I am a Mommy of three little girls and keep a blog. It’s not quite as funny as yours, but feel free to check it out.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win the dress. And if I don’t, maybe I’ll buy one for myself (and have it delivered to my office so I can rip the tags off, shove it in the back of my closet and tell my husband “NO! It’s not new…I’ve had it a while” after the one week waiting period is over).

  62. I would like to say that I knew about Shabby Apple…but thanks for telling me that they have a maternity section! I am expecting and having a hard time finding cute clothes lately. So thank you!

  63. I always feel too intimidated to comment on blogs I love…but like many others have said, nothing like an irresistible giveaway to conquer that fear! Even if I don’t win, I will probably go buy that dress anyway…

  64. I have my little lovebird on my shoulder and he is nibbling my hair. That is something, right?
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  65. I love that dress! I have been reading your blog for a few months now and I’m pretty sure I want you to be my best friend.

  66. Another longtime luker! Ive been reading you for long time now. I absolutely adore your DIY projects. I wish Im that good as you are. And you are hilarious! That dress is gorgeous and would love to wear it since I don’t have anything like that in my closet! :)

  67. Hi! I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago when googling how to make flower hair clips and have loved reading from someone with the same sense of humor as me ever since. Thanks for providing me with lots of laughs. Oh, and I love the dress. Pick me, please?

  68. It’s gorgeous!
    I’ve been hanging around for a while, too. I showed up for your felt flower tutorial, but the one where you said “Ballin is my hobby” was my absolute favorite. :) I’ve been lurking ever since.

  69. I’ve been following your blog for some time now, but have never commented. Well here I am and I LOVE that dress!! I would be so excited if I won :) I’ll be tweeting it as well! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!!

  70. Listen, i have to tell you “thank you” for your hilarious posts….i swear you keep me in stitches….most of the time, i could have said the same thing! :) really, i appreciate your posts….like a daily smile!
    Take care!

  71. What an awesome dress! I always need wardrobe help so this would be a fabulous win.

    I want to know more about your decision to be a stay at home mommy!

  72. I’m one of your newest blog stalkers and I love it! I know makes me sound like a complete wierdo! But hey you’re funny and Mrs.Priss is a GREAT read! Thanks!

  73. Hey Morgan,
    Love reading your blog. It’s a nice pepper-upper during my work week (shhh, don’t tell my boss!). Love the dress, not really my style, but since my experience with different fashion types amongst roomies in college, I have committed to branching out. Maybe winning the dress will help?

  74. I’ve been reading your site for a while…and pretty sure I’ve never commented before. Yay for pretty dresses!!! :)

  75. My first time commenting but I’ve been wanting to tell you I just LOVE seeing your weekly preggo pics! I love seeing the belly grow…just not mine ;) You are too too cute (I know you don’t feel it, neither did I with either of my babies) but you look great and I enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for the chance to win such a great dress!!

  76. Hey Morgan! I’ve been secretly stalking your blog for about a week now (I know, i’m sorry!…i stumbled on your blog through another blog…and then i became hooked!). I keep a list of blogs under my favorites, and when i’m bored at work (if my boss happens to ask, this is actually NEVER-because i’m always so BUSY;) )….i just click-click-click them! THank you for being a part of my days…i love your blog! Thanks again.


  77. Oh I would love to win a dress! That black one would be perfect for some upcoming interviews I have!

    As for my new year’s resolution, I hope to procrastinate less!

    Happy New Year!

  78. I stumbled across your blog a few short days ago and love it to bits. Have already caught up on all earlier posts and wanted to say thanks for getting me back into that crafty mood. This super dooper LBD would surely add a ‘lil glam to my life though. Either way, I am hooked :o)

  79. Oh this dress is gorgeous. And I’m slightly embarrassed to say this but I don’t own a single black dress. I think this would be an awesome dress to start with, don’t you?

  80. Ooooh! I’ve a longtime Shabby Apple fan (yet I somehow have yet to own one of my own…)

    I for one love the makeup posts, and would love to know which are your fave shades and how they look on you.

  81. I am new to the blog world and new to you and you are just the cutest ever!

    Loves loves that dress! Santa brought me the PERFECT shoes to complete that outfit!!

  82. Oh, how cute! I could definintely use a cute little black dress like this. Four months post-baby and I’m in need of some new clothes. :) Best of luck with these last few weeks. I had a little girl then a little boy… absolutely amazing!!!

  83. I need the dress! I have a 6 month old baby girl, and I’m dying for a an excuse to get all prettied up and go on a date with the huz.

  84. My New Years Resolution is to actually stick to a weight loss plan an look great for the cruise I’m going on in May.

    Congrats on the baby! You look absolutely gorgeous!!

  85. I’m kind of addicted to shabby apple’s site now. I will probably going to end up purchasing something by the end of the month. Thanks for introducing me!

  86. Stumbled on your blog tonight and I’m in love! such a cute blog with great how tos (was looking up how to make shoe clips) and this give-away? LOVELY.

  87. This is my first time on your blog…so far I like what I see so I will be checking back often. Thanks for the great giveaway. :)

  88. Love it! I’ve joined the masses of the [f]unemployed, this little number would certainly add confidence to any job interview. Oh, pick me please!

  89. I’m a fellow Fresnan, well Clovis actually! Excited to stumble on your blog and have a chance to win a dress! Wahoo!! Hope you’re enjoy the cold and fog more than me!

  90. So jealous of your weekly prego photo shoots!
    When I was finally successfully prego (after five years and five miscarriage) I was too afraid to take any photos of myself – I only have one..just at the bitter end…looking like a beached whale.
    It is much more fun to look at the progress from week to week.
    You are darling! Love your blog!

  91. Ah! I love the Shabby Apple! Yet another store I wish had a physical counterpart so I could go in and try on the lovely dresses…..

  92. I have been a long time reader of your blog but I’m pretty sure this is my first comment! That dress is gorgeous. :) Honestly though, I love all your posts. Congratulations on the soon-to-be new family member!

  93. Thanks for introducing me to that store… super cute…. and I NEED that dress… do what you can to hook me up! lol

  94. Just turned the big 4-0! I could use a snazzy dress to keep me looking young and lovely. Had spinach quiche for breakfast…

  95. My New Year’s Resolution #1: Have a baby. He’s due in April, so I think I can do it. After seeing this post, New Year’s Resolution #2: Get into shape after having said baby so I can look great in a fab Shabby Apple Dress. :)

  96. confession: I stalk your blog. You are such a doll! I’m creative like you, and love love love your diy and posts. you inspire me. thanks for the afternoon giggles! carry on.


  97. so love shabby apple!! and i’ve been reading your blog for awhile, forgot how i even found it, and i love your sarcasm. it amazes me.

  98. LOVE your blog. it always makes me laugh.
    my new years resolution is to: spend a small moment each day writing down a few things I am thankful for from the day… such as finding my favorite cereal on sale or having a stranger let me merge into traffic. it want to increase my gratitude for life itself and I think this is a good way to do it. :D

  99. I love your blog! So many of my friends are pregnant, and don’t speak the truth about it. I really value your honesty about even the tough stuff, and you always entertain me no matter what you’re talking about. And I’m totally making a yarn wreath this weekend.
