That dress looks nice on you: Shabby Apple Giveaway

Hey folks! So I was recently contacted by Shabby Apple asking if I'd like to do a giveaway of one of their dresses. I was all, "Let me think about it...YES." I've been a fan of their dress collection for a couple of years now. They specialize in women's dresses, little girl's dresses, accessories, and the cutest swim suits I've seriously ever seen. There's something about their clothing that just evokes romanticism.

One of you will be lucky enough to win a new dress from their spring line. It's called the Bali Ha'i and I can't get enough of that orchid color. If you live by a beach, you could totally wear it there, but if not, this dress would look great for an evening out to a neighborhood French cafe followed up with a production of South Pacific.


So! Want to win this dress? Here's how...

The Rules
1. Leave a comment on this post. If you like, click over to Shabby Apple and tell me what you like of theirs. Also, please provide your email address so that I can get in contact with you if you're the lucky winner. U.S. residents only, please.

2.  Yeah, that's about it. But wait! If you'd like to submit up to two additional entries, you can do the following.

Extra Entry #1: Go "like" Shabby Apple on Facebook and leave a separate comment here saying that you did. If you already like them on facebook, leave a comment anyway!

Extra Entry #2: Post a link to this contest on your blog, twitter, tumblr, etc...you get the idea. Feel free to post about it as many times as you like, but you only need to do it once on one of those for it to count. And then leave a separate comment here with a link to your mention of the contest.

To recap: You may enter up to three (3) times, each with a separate comment so I can properly choose a completely random winner.

The contest will close on April 18th, 2011 at 11:59 PM CST and the winner will be announced the following day. If the winner doesn't reply, a new winner will be drawn. You know how it goes.

Guess what! Even if you don't win or if you see something on there you just can't live without, you can still get an extra 10% off your purchase by using the coupon code gretchenalice10off.

{Disclaimer stuff...The dress is being provided by the fine folks over at Shabby Apple. All views and opinions are mine. Also, I'm now a Shabby Apple affiliate, which means that if you purchase anything from the links on my website, I do receive some minor compensation. No one forced me to do this. Also, I think you're swell.}

I would like one, please! Sign me up.

Which one is the one in the ad? I like that one the best, but I can't find it on the site. Probably because I'm lazy and gave up really quickly.

Wow. So many comments!

I actually ADORE this dress. I wanted my bridesmaids to wear this (as I also love the orchid purple), but there's hesitation since they are all married and might, you know, be pregnant.

I've been a fan of Shabby Apple for a while. I joked to my hubby that one day I'll have a closet full of their adorable dresses. Well, I was only half-joking...

I also have at least 7 tabs open right now.... Okay! I think I found a favorite... maybe... That's it: either Cape Cod or that darling blue Upper East Side. I love them both equally.
