What better way to ring in 2011 than with a giveaway?!
I’m so excited to partner with Shabby Apple to offer one lucky APP reader this adorable San Gabriel dress! I love everything about this grey poplin frock, from the military-inspired buttons and ruffle detailing to the sweet sashed waist. This would be a perfect little number to kick off Spring 2011 {I secretly wish I could enter myself}.
Shabby Apple designs beautiful dresses with real women (and modesty) in mind — “A return 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!).”
Entering is easy peasy. Just leave a comment with your email address or URL and tell me how you would style the San Gabriel… with tights and pumps for the office, neutral flats and a roomy tote for a shopping day, etc. 
And in the spirit of the holidays, everyone’s a winner with a special Shabby Apple discount for all APP readers. Order before 2/1/11 and use discount code aprettypenny10off to get 10% off! Cruise on over now and start shopping {well, enter here first, then cruise over}.
All giveaway entries must be received before Friday 1/07/10 at 8:00pm EST. I’ll announce the winner the following Monday.
Good luck!
