  1. The Sheep Meadow striped dress is awfully fun….

  2. Sandy says:

    Oh, I just love the white cape cod shirt dress called “bonheur”. Maybe summer is on my mind with all this now, but I also know I look great in casual white things, and have wanted to incorporate some more white into my wardrobe.

  3. Ms.Cleaver says:

    Wow – what a bunch of great dresses – my favorites are j. muir and red fox, I also quite like cider. I have a feeling discovering this site is going to be bad on my wallet!!

    I love the Le Seine dress! All their dresses are amazing.. this is a great giveaway!

  22. Adrienna says:

    I like so many of the dresses! The Liz and Darcy is a good, versatile dress — and quite flattering (I think it’s way more versatile than a bridesmaid’s dress!). I also adore the Red Fox – I imagine I’d feel sassy every time I wore it.

    oh my goodness… how to choose just one favorite… I could take the entire All That Jazz, 1943 and Skyscraper collections.

  183. Angelique says:

    wow! I’d never heard of this site…and how fabulous to know they exist since I was actually on Etsy this morning looking for cute vintage pieces!
    Here are the great things that I love about the site:
    1. You can shop by body type!!!!
    2. the selection.
    3. the products are great (or seem to be great) for taller women such as myself! I’m 5’10″ and often have a hard time trying to look like a lady, without dresses being incredibly short!

    one only disappointment….seemed to take 4EVER to load on my page…may be due to my internet connection, though. but well worth my wait! :)

    Ok so with so many great options out there, I’ll have to say of the favorites that I have, I’d LOVE to add “VP” to my collection!

  482. Melissa says:

    I think my favorite is the Bethesda Fountain dress. A little impractical, but still gorgeous!

  483. Evie says:

    It’s a toss up between Cotton Candy and Ferris Wheel…I absolutely love the patterns with the solid collar, cuff, and belt!

  484. Amanda B. says:

    I LOVE the classic cut and pretty color of the Ain’t She Sweet dress. I’m a sucker for a good vintage-inspired shape. The Ingrid would be perfect with some red pumps at work. Or at grad school interviews? Eeps.


  485. Cindy says:

    I love the ballerina dress, pretty color and looks very flattering.

  486. Kate says:

    I loved Cider!! The neckline is beautiful!

    As Ned Flanders once said, “If it’s clear and yella, you’ve got juice, there, fella; if it’s tangy and brown, you’re in Cider Town.”

  492. Alicia says:

    I’ve actually had Ingrid bookmarked for a couple months as a dress that I wanted to get. I saw it on this post and swooned for it all over again. I adore it.

  493. Jennifer says:

    I have been in love with the Sheep Meadow dress for too long. It is no longer in my size, and I do my best to refrain from crying myself to sleep most nights.

  494. Jennifer says:

    I “like” shabby apple!

  495. Jess says:

    I really love how simple and smooth the “Up and Away” dress looks–but it’s really hard to pick, there’s so many great ones!

  496. Secret Squirrel says:

    Shanghai is my favourite. What a great competition, thanks guys x

  497. devon says:

  498. Jen says:

    Black oak is my favorite!

  499. Sarah says:

    I purchased this dress over the summer and returned it immediately. The stitching was uneven and made the hems and neckline look strange, the fabric was very cheap feeling (the top was itchy and paper-y, the bottom was very coarse), and overall it was not cut well. The top is easy to see through. It wasn’t worth the 90 bucks I paid — it was easy to see that one trip through the wash would have bent the dress out of shape. The ruffly neckline looked horrible.

    Academichic, I’m really not sure why you keep pushing Shabby Apple. I get that they do “modest” in a cute way, but their dresses are on-par in quality with the Old Navy clearance rack and the prices are extraordinarily expensive for what you actually get — Talbots pricing, Old Navy quality.

    I purchased the dress shown in the picture above hoping that I could wear it for law school functions, and I cannot imagine showing up in something that looked as poorly made as that dress from Shabby Apple. It was itchy and not 100% cotton.

  500. Valerie says:

    Very hard to choose! But I love the French Quarter dress and kept going back to it.

  501. Valerie says:

    I also “liked” them on facebook.

  502. Jenny G says:

    I love the Ingrid dress! I spotted it a while ago and thought it was the perfect balance of polish and pretty.

  503. Tema says:

    I really dig the Pont Neuf – looks like it’d make a perfect dress for a casual summer wedding!

  504. Tema says:

    Oh… and I definitely “liked” them on Facebook.

  505. Courtney says:

    Couldn’t help giving it a chance…I love Shabby Apple since I saw it featured on this website, and have told my husband that I now dream to own a dress from the Berkshire collection, preferably “cider.” Here’s to a shot in the dark!

  506. Courtney says:

    Also “liked” them on Facebook. ; )

    I liked Shabby Apple on FACEBOOK too!

  517. Elissa says:

    There are a lot of great dresses on that site–making it very hard to choose a favorite (the Ingrid dress looks fabulous, btw). I think I’d have to go with La Tour Eiffel… and I may use the 10% discount to get that one!

  518. Elissa says:

    And I liked them on Facebook.

    (By the way, the “shop by body type” feature is pretty cool.)

  519. Georgie says:

    Here’s hoping: I LOVE the Bon Voyage.

  520. Kayla says:

    I love Carnival! It would be hard to not wear it everyday! :)

    Such a difficult choice! I really like the Cider and the Kuna Crest.

    I think I’m going to have to go with “Antiquated.” I just love a black dress.

  524. notacomputeruser says:

    I also liked them on FB!

  525. Alison says:

    Just One?! I Could only narrow it down to my top two: Chickaree. I think the bottom of the dress is amazing and half sleeves are so flattering. The other would be Sequoia. I love the detail and the structure of the dress.

  526. Emily says:

    I love the Ingrid dress as well as Cider. Such lovely body-conscious designs!

  527. Marcy says:

    I quite like Forbidden City. I’m glad Shabby Apple has started carrying silk dresses. I wish their colorful bridesmaid dresses came in silk as well.

  533. Alisa says:

    J’aime le bonheur!

  534. RB says:

    My favorite is the Carnival!

  535. Amy says:

    I have to say, the G Cooper might have just made it on my list. I can see that getting a LOT of wear.

  536. Meg says:

    I’d have to go for “Le Soleil”, but “Shanghai” and “Bonheur” were not far behind. So many pretty dresses!

  537. Lisa says:

    I love the baja dress -the stripes are intriguing, and it would be so fun to mix and match with cardigans, belts, and textured tights.

  538. devon says:

    I love Champs Elysees. The street and the dress!

  539. Tina Cheung says:

    I like the Bijou dress. I like the print and how casual it is.

  540. cpt says:

    I love the deep blue of the Gray Fox dress, and it looks like an elegant way to show off curves. Thanks for the inspiration!

  542. Lisa says:

    I love the Ingrid dress, but I also love the Cider and La Tour Eiffel dresses, too.

    I can’t decide whether the Ingrid or the Madison Ave is my favorite. So many great styles! I lust.

  544. Lisa says:

    I also ‘liked’ Shabby Apple on the Facebooks.

  545. Lisa says:

    I might have changed my mind… “Partner” in the Skyscraper collection is lovely and elegant. I’m a bit concerned that all their dresses would swamp petite 5’1″ me, though.

  546. Elizabeth Ann says:

    The Ingrid dress has long been a favorite of mine so I would love to win this giveaway. Thanks for hosting it!

  547. April says:

    That is such a cute dress! I have yearned for their Yorkshire dress for ages. One day I’ll buy it.

  565. Bethany says:

    Also liked on Facebook :-)

  566. sylvia says:

    i love shabby apple’s dresses and style – but the vast majority have a neckline which is unflattering on a larger bust. christina hendricks may be able to pull off that look on mad men, but i feel like i have a giant expanse of chest when i try it!

  567. Ashley says:

    I love the Marco Polo dress


  568. i love The Fitzgerald. Thank you!!

  569. The Ingrid dress is by far my favorite, but I love all of the dresses in the 1943 collection.

  570. I think Shabby Apple may have deleted their Facebook page, cuz everytime I click the link you provided, it says “page not found…”


  571. [...] on Academic Chic, they’re hosing a giveaway of this dress from Shabby [...]
