We just moved from Virginia to Ohio this week. I am so happy to be home, too! One thing I noticed right away when we arrived at our new home is that the climate is definitely different up north than it was in Virginia. This ,means I will be putting the vast majority of my summer wardrobe into storage while I break out all of my fall clothing. Here in Ohio, it tends to be chilly in the mornings and evenings, and this is something I am definitely not used to!
One thing I look forward to each fall is the change in fashion. While summer is flirty and vibrant, fall is more rich and elegant, in my humble opinion. I love the darker hues that are so popular in the autumn. Some of my favorite colors to wear in the fall include reds, browns, grays, and of course purples.
Some of my favorite dresses all year round can be found at Shabby Apple, an online boutique of women's dresses. The thing I love most about this amazing shop is the simple, understated sophistication found in their garments. Everything they carry is feminine, modest, and elegant. Their clothing almost reminds me of a bygone era when Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth graced magazine covers. They really seem to have that classic pin-up feel. They're sexy, but not revealing. In a word, classy.
Their dresses are suitable for both casual and special occasions and can be dressed up with just a few accessories. The site also sells some very vintage looking jewelry that can help tie your look together. Oh, and I can't forget about the shoes! Shabby Apple has some of the most drool-worthy shoes I have ever seen. And let's face it: A girl can never have too many pairs of cute shoes.
Here are just a few of my favorite Shabby Apple picks for fall. I just love the colors and vintage designs!
Aren't these items spectacular?! I always get really excited when I browse Shabby Apple. They're always adding new styles and finding fresh new designers for their line of clothing and accessories. You will always find something unique, flirty, and oh so feminine. They even have sizing for women with more curves! This comes in handy for me, since finding dresses that don't squeeze my bust to death has always been a challenge. I would definitely recommend Shabby Apple for all of your fashion needs. Trust me, you will feel like a Hollywood Starlet in their clothing, and these flattering designs will surely turn heads.
