Dressing Up | Giveaway WSRW Blog Party

Whether it’s a LBD or a sophisticated wrap-around Shabby Apple has you covered with its eclectic collection of women’s dresses. Shabby Apple returns to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add anything…no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).

I’ve been scoping out Shabby Apple for over a year now. I’ve feel in love over and over with so many dresses but always chicken out at the last minute over which one to get. I love dresses but my body is weird, I’m a bigger girl with large boobs, long torso but short legs. Dresses hit me at a weird spot on my legs and tend to be shorter in the back, probably due to my butt. I tend to steer clear of dresses just to avoid frustration. Shabby Apple has come up with solutions for trouble body areas by dressing you by your body shape.
Shop by

  • HOURGLASS
  • APPLE
  • PEAR
  • PENCIL
  • ATHLETIC
  • WOMANLY
  • TALL
  • SHORT

Just a couple short questions and you are brought to the best selections for your shape. I’m a womanly apple; not a category they have but one I think that would best suit me. I haven’t yet picked out my ideal dress yet, I have commitment issues. But these are the couple that I truly love the look of even if they aren’t the right fit for me.

penelope and odysseus - golden gate collection

el mar - baja collection

champs elysees - oh la la collection

The Shabby Apple designers are independent artists. Their designs are submitted and if approved collections are created from their ideas, drawings and sketchings. Doing this I believe keeps the selection fresh, modern and inviting for women coming from all different backgrounds and demographics. The 20-something can shop along-side the middle-age corporate exec and they will each find a style that suits their lifestyle without compromising taste.

With the addition of active wear, swimwear, skirts and accessories you only need to make a couple more stops to complete your wardrobe.

Win a Shabby Apple dress of your choice from one of the following collections” Roamin Holiday, South Pacific, The Berksires, Yosemite, Oh La La, Central Park, Carousel, Baja, All That Jazz and 1943. Let me know which 2 dresses from these collections are your favorites.

Look 5lbs Lighter | Giveaway WSRW Blog Party


Like lingerie only better, Yummie Tummie is a slimming shaping garment that can be worn but doesn’t need to be hidden like tradition shapewear.

Unlike most shapewear that compress your bust and roll up, the Yummie Tummies’ cotton bust and hip panels appear to the outsider as a normal tank top; meanwhile the secret midsection panel is smoothing and shaping your middle, eliminating approximately five pounds off your appearance.

I wear tanks under almost everything. It gives a buffer against itchy sweaters, cleavage control with button downs and warmth under sweats and long sleeve tees. The Yummie Tummie does all of these along with some smoothing of the bumps and rolls. I have a drawer full of traditional super tight suction action shapewear that I love but they aren’t for everyday. The Yummie Tummie Skinny Tank has been a part of my wardrobe for about 2 weeks and I love it. I know I need to order more because I always grab it before any other tanks in my drawer. It doesn’t transform me into a svelte sexy beast but it does give a smoother look without the uncomfortable binding and rolling of other garments.

There are more than just tanks to choose from too! Yummie Tummie carries shaping lingerie, camis, tees and dresses. They’ve recently introduced a collection of Men’s Shapewear using the same hidden slimming panel. The smoothing is on the inside with a top layer of stretch cotton and no visible seams on the outside. This new Yummie basic will give you all of the versatility your wardrobe requires with a chic and sleek, show it off look!

Win a Yummie Tummie Tank for yourself from LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too!. Visit Yummie Tummie and tell me which garment would be best for you.

Holiday Wishlist 2010 – chicka-d Review – Clothes For The Game

Are you a huge fan of college sports and love to show your school spirit?  If so then you need to check out chicka-d which is a privately owned women’s apparel company created for women to show off their school spirit while maintaining a unique sense of style.

I am a huge University of Alabama fan and I guess Melinda is a fan by default so it was cool when Melinda received a University of Alabama tube dress for review.  The dress is strapless with an empire bodice and elastic shelf-bra. Side pockets are hidden by light gathers along the front and the dress is 92% Cotton, 8% Spandex.  In my opinion Melinda looks super cute in the dress plus it is the University of Alabama which makes her look even hotter. 

 “Female sports fans no longer have to resign themselves to wearing baggy jerseys or men’s t-shirts to show their school spirit,” commented Lauren Polt, founder of chicka-d. “With chicka-d clothing options they can now feel free to show off their team spirit with a variety of options that are truly unique to their style, tastes and figure.”

The above quote from founder Lauren Polt says it all and this is one of many reasons Melinda loves chicka-d.

chicka-d believes school spirit is a way of life and should not be reserved solely for the stadium. Therefore, its premise is simple: Clothes for the game. Clothes for spirit. Clothes for life.

This fall look for chicka-d clothing lines at Alabama, Louisiana State University, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Colorado, Texas Christian University, Arizona, Arizona State, University of California, Stanford, Central Florida, Houston, Southern Illinois, Appalachian State and Virginia Tech.
