Dressing Up: Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway

So, you know how it's fun to dress up for a date out with your spouse? (You better be nodding your head in agreement.) You know how it'd be even funner...(yes, funner IS a word in my dictionary)...to have a brande new, flirty dress to surprise him with?

I'm a believer in buying yourself something new now and then to make yourself look and feel "hot"! For some, it's an unnecessary expense, and when budgets are really tight...that's understandable. I get that.
But, when there's a little wiggle room, or maybe you can save your pennies for a while, try to find a good sale and buy yourself a new dress!

There are lots of great places online to find cute women's dresses that won't break the bank. One of my new favorites is Shabby Apple. They have the best line of cute and classy dresses!

These are a few of my favorites..


Cute, right?!

And if I told you that Shabby Apple has generously offered to give a dress away to one of my followers, how excited would you be?!

One of Shabby Apple's most popular dresses is the "90 Words per Minute" dress (pictured below)...It's a dress that can flatter lots of different body types and can be worn casually, on a date, or even to the office. And..it's a beautiful, bright color! If you need accessories to dress it up or down, they've got those, too.


I know you don't need any further convincing, so here you go...

How to enter the giveaway:

1. Be a follower of Love Actually
2. Go to Shabby Apple's website, pick your favorite dress or accessory, and come back here to tell me in a comment!

Bonus entries:
(Leave an additional comment for each entry)
1. Vote for Love Actually on Top Mommy Blogs by clicking HERE. (you can submit a rank and comment, too)
2. Follow Love Actually on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Giveaway Ends: February 24th!

*If you just can't wait to find out if you're the winner and you want a dress NOW, you can also get 10% off any order from Shabby Apple using this coupon code at checkout: Loveactually10off (make sure the L is capital). Valid until March 3rd!

Thanks to ShabbyApple for sponsoring this amazing giveaway!

Oh gosh, I pretty much love nearly all of their dresses, so to "pick" a favorite I closed my eyes and pointed at my computer screen. I landed on Ballerina, which is just sweet and sassy. I love the different layers to the dress. The middle looks as though it might be slimming (which is great).

p.s. I'm a follower of the blog.

Some top picks; Cleopatra, Bon Voyage, G. Cooper, Some Like it Hot, Washington Square Park, Ballerina, Beauty Mark... I'm sure there were more.
