Here at Mama Chocolate, you have the chance to win the lovely Ballerina Dress from Shabby Apple!

I love what Shabby Apple is doing for women’s dresses! They specifically design clothing that is feminine and fashionable, (no frumpies allowed!) but modest. It is difficult to find this combination these days. Everything is too tight, too low, or too short. Or it’s ugly.

We started Shabby Apple because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women.

I love this dress! It is super soft and comfortable, easy to care for, and beautiful!

Plum-colored folds of soft jersey fabric dip from the shoulders into a ruched waist that runs from bust to hip on this flouncy, ballet-inspired dress. Perfect for traveling, this dress sports a V-neck and fully lined skirt for extra coverage, so whether at the office or on the road, you’ll feel comfortable and beautiful.

This dress follows our Fits Generously size chart. We recommend ordering a size down for petite customers and/or those preferring a more snug fit. This dress flatters most body types and is particularly nice for new mothers as it hides a tummy!

Poly/Rayon/Spandex blend jersey fabric. Machine wash cold, delicate cycle. Line dry.


I love how the ruched waist actually flatters my waistline. I’m getting a significant “pooch” around my middle with this little one (going on 11 weeks now,) and with this dress you’d never know!

I love when I start really showing, but there is that awkward point where there is definitely a pooch there, but not enough to convince people you’re pregnant, LOL!

I did need to wear a camisole under it, mostly because I have little persons who tend to grab and stretch necklines…and this neckline would be a bit dangerous in such situations. ;-)

How would you like your very own Ballerina dress to dress up for your Valentine’s date?

 

One lucky Mama Chocolate reader is going to get this lovely dress shipped to her door!

Enter using the easy Rafflecopter form below, and then be sure to scroll down to check out all the other blogs’ giveaways on the linky!

Good luck!

That’s a gorgeous dress! I totally know what you mean about modest and comfortable. Does it work for nursing? I haven’t worn a dress in a long time as I’m still nursing my daughter, but that top almost looks like it would be okay.
