Do you love clothes? And do you have a hard time finding clothes that fit? I do! I love clothes, but my body just doesn't conform to standards set by manufacturers anymore, or so it seems. That’s why I was so excited when Heather Johnson from ShabbyApple contacted me to ask if I wanted to review their products on my blog. Off course I wanted to!! ShabbyApple—Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? Just the name would want to make anyone browse their site!

ShabbyApple have the most amazing collection of vintage dresses you have ever seen... This is not just another online boutique specializing in women’s apparel; their owners and designers recognize that finding the perfect dress can sometimes be challenging, which is why they strive to design highly fashionable dresses for all types of women. Choosing among all their lovely dresses was the hard part! They've a fantastic selection and making a decision was tough. I finally opted for this pretty spring dress: The name of the dress is Primavera, which means spring. And you all know how much I love spring! It was just so me!

And of course, I had to model my new dress for you! ;) All required now is 30 pounds off my body to look anything like the model on the above pictures, right? So I hope you won't be too harsh on making comparisons! ;)
Whether you’re looking for evening dresses, blouses, or the perfect skirt, ShabbyApple should have something that is right for you! And keep in mind that they are always designing new dresses for women, as well as coming out with entirely new fashion lines. So if you can’t find the perfect dress for you, go check this amazing boutique right now! But wait... because I know how much you all are going to love this line of clothe, I have a surprise for you!

All Roses Show Off Your Cottage Monday

Hello to you! And welcome to Show Off Your Cottage Monday, a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live. If you're new here, thanks for stopping by and if you've visited before, thanks for returning!
The House in the Roses
If you remember, last week I suggested that our theme for this week be "ROSE BOUQUETS".--simple, elegant, small, large, dried or fresh bouquets in whatever container or vase you wanted; but only just roses (not in bush)! And thus some of us worshipers of roses have come together for this special “Show Off Your Cottage Monday and prepared what I consider an extraordinary rose-filled post to brighten your day... so sit back and enjoy! The lovely hostesses are:

Hakan (the roseman), at Maleviks Rose Gardens Pam, at White Ironstone Cottage MarĂ­a Cecilia, at: Casa Dulce Hogar
Miss Bella, at: Bellas Rose Cottage Carolyn, at Aiken House and Gardens And some of my own bright beauties from The house in the roses: Do you have some lovely rose bouquets you're just dying to show off? Now is the time! Link and take us there! Remember, if you rather show off something other than our theme feel free to link that up too! Just please link back to The House in the Roses as courtesy!
