Shabby Apple Giveaway Extravaganza.

Once upon a time, a woman from my favorite women's dress boutique emailed me that she liked my blog, and asked if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway. They provide the Shabby Apple dress free of charge, and I provide the lucky reader who gets to win it. While I am not interested in advertising things, I am interested in recommending things, especially those things I like (i.e., books and food), and I like Shabby Apple. This love of recommending probably stems from the library scientist in me. Either way, I wrote back a resounding yes.

Here I am, liking one of my favorite Shabby Apple dresses the day I became a Master,

and then another the day Hedi got married.

Here is the dress you may win:
It is called Spanish Steps and is from one of their newest Spring collections. If you are interested, leave a comment (or two, or three), and I will do some sort of drawing on May 8th, before posting again with the results. Good luck!

I am now a Shabby Apple convert! Dress winner or no, I am definitely going to browse (and hopefully buy) there! Fun, fun, fun giveaway, Ms. Rachel!

Adrienne said...

I almost feel like I shouldn't try to win because I just re-discovered your blog. Will you forgive me for not looking at it for so long? Oh, and Jim, if you win, can I please have the dress? Unless of course, you do plan on wearing it.

Kara said...

Rachel,
I so need that dress. Seriously!! That is so flippin cute!!

Kara said...

Okay seriously.. the more I look it, the more I am thinking I may have to buy that for family pics this summer!

Evelyn said...

what!! listen to this....today my sister in-law emailed me links to two blogs she thought i would like to check out. The blogs are by the same person. She lives in nyc and is a hairdresser. I was looking over her personal blog and I loved her style. I came across one picture of her wearing an adorable dress. I thought of how I wished I knew where she had gotten it. I read the caption under the photo and she happened to mention it was from Shabby Apple! What are the odds??? I had never heard of them before today. Crazy! I then spent some time looking at their website. ps this is counts as my first entry. ;)

Evelyn said...

pps That dress is adorable and I loved the dresses from that collection. Hope i get picked! :)

Emily said...

Sure, I'll enter to win. I love their dresses, but don't have the kind of money to actually buy one.

Emily said...

Did you say to leave a comment or two?

Emily said...

Or three. ;)

It's like you've made it into the blogging big wigs! I've been coveting that dress, I should probably win to avoid breaking any commandments. :) Love you Rachel!

Ashley A. said...

Wow, this giveaway is fun surprise from your blog, Rachel! I WANT that dress! But, I do agree that it may not look as cute on me as those others do on you!

PS I love your last post. It can't be as bad as Joe, who once got three tickets in one day! :)

Okay! My last comment!

I am officially a Master of Library Science! I'm so happy!

Tomorrow I am leaving to London for a week with my parents to celebrate my Mastery!

Hopefully when I return I will have an happy email saying I won. If not, I will have to wait until I get a job and buy a dress to celebrate. =)
