Dresses from Shabby Apple are anything but!

In the summer especially, I don’t like having to think too much as I choose an outfit for work. That’s why I love dresses! Just pull them out of the closet and you’re ready to go – it’s one-piece, easy dressing that ensures you always look put together.

Dresses are often hard to find, though. For cocktail parties or special events LBDs are a cinch. And if you’re searching for colorful, flirty sundresses, there must be hundreds of choices. The difficulty seems to come with the in-between — and luckily that’s where Shabby Apple comes to the rescue!

According to Shabby Apple founders Emily and CK, they spent years not being able to find stylish dresses that covered enough skin to make them feel really comfortable (you know, without wearing a tank top, cardigan or long slip). They visited trade shows, marketplaces and designer studios only to discover that the problem wasn’t that department stores weren’t buying the right dresses, the designers actually weren’t even designing them! So, they decided to do something about it and Shabby Apple’s fabulous dresses are the beautiful result.

The BaHa collection is the most recent release from the firm, and of course, I have a can’t-live-without favorite! The Caynenne (pictured) is a simple style that fits a wide variety of body types and sizes. This dress is made of fiery red jersey fabric with a drape from the shoulders into a flattering ruched waist that runs from bust to hip. More interesting than just a basic v-neck, this fold-over neckline adds a lovely style detail to the classic dress. Retail $86

In addition to the BaHa Collection, Shabby Apple has a score of other collections from the chic Manhattan, to the relaxed Central Park, to flirty Carousel and even the decidedly French Oo La La.

Not too shabby!
