Shabby Apple Giveaway!

* This giveaway is over.

I’m off for a bit to spend some time with my folks. Thought I’d leave you guys with something special while I’m on a blogging hiatus. As you may remember I did a Shabby Apple dress review and that green dress has become one of my go to’s when I want something simple, but lovely and comfortable to wear.

Well, now I’m giving you lovely readers a chance at winning your own beautiful Shabby Apple dress. It was hard choosing which one, let me tell you, but I finally went with this one and I’ve completely fallen for it. I think you’ll fall for it to, Overboard!

“Embrace your inner 50’s hostess in the Overboard dress.  Piped with perfect details, this blue and white gingham doll of a shirtdress will have you serving up trays of lobster rolls and summer punch and charming the masses in no time. The full a-line skirt falls just to the knee from the defined waistline, and a row of oversized buttons rises up the shirt front with bright white piping keeping them in line. Slip it on and set sail for the perfect summer getup.” – from the dress details.

For those of you, like me, who go to the ShabbyApple.com website and fall in love with more than one of their wonderful women’s dresses, they have given me (and all of you!) our own coupon code for %10 off! Just type in handmadeexperiment10off sometime within the next 30 days.

Alright. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. If you’d like to be entered to win the Overboard blue and white gingham dress from Shabby Apple all you have to do is tell me your favorite vacation experience.

For a second, LIKE Shabby Apple on Facebook and comment here that you did so.

For a third, HEART my etsy shop, Sew Flippin Cool  and tell me that you did so.

For more opportunities to win, spread the word! If you blog about, tweet (#flippincool), comment on facebook (@Sew Flippin Cool), etc. Just comment here for each thing your do and you’ll have a separate entry for each one.

Good luck! I’ll announce the winner next Thursday.

Shabby Apple

I was so excited to be contacted by Heather at Shabby Apple with the opportunity to review a dress. Their women’s dresses are all gorgeous. Picking just one was brutal! But I did it and now I am the proud, and much complimented owner of  Mariposa Grove.

The dress screams spring in its glorious greenness and has wonderful little details like the raw edged petals at the neckline, the exposed zipper on the back, and the spectacular vintage inspired seaming that is oh so figure flattering. I wore it today with my Miz Mooz green heals, DKNY charcoal leggings and my embroidered, batwing shrug I got from JJill so many moons ago. I’m also wearing my favorite upcycled charm bracelet that my friend Cory, of Freecycle, made. Overall, I’m really happy with the dress. It’s comfortable and lightweight enough that I can wear it all spring and into summer, too!

Shabby Apple seems like a really great company. Besides having a beautiful array of women’s dresses, maternity dresses, plus sizeskids clothing, skirts, and jewelry/accessories, they have also partnered up with Unitus, a non-profit organization working to bring life-changing mirco-loans to the world’s working poor. Shabby Apple donates 5% of its net sales to support work in India (where many of the dresses and textiles are made) and gives their customers the opportunity to donate an extra $5 to Unitus every time she buys a dress. Shabby Apple Dresses and Unitus are involved with 10 of India’s most promising microfinance organizations that provide financial services to more than 1.6 million hard-working women and their families.

So I know you guys are all real excited for me, but don’t worry. I didn’t forget you, dear reader. Shabby Apple has been sweet enough to offer all my readers a 10% discount! Just type the handmadeexperiment10off coupon code when you make your next purchase. You can also go LIKE them on Facebook to find out special promotions and exclusive discounts.

So what are you going to buy?
