shabby apple giveaway!

today i'm excited to post a giveaway for you guys! i don't do these very often on here, so i'm just thrilled to be posting this, and especially around the holidays.

shabby apple (a favorite around the blogging world for beautiful and vintage-inspired dresses...i wore the waimea dress for graduation and now i'm coveting their maternity collection!) has generously offered to give a cats & cardigans reader the gorgeous frida k. dress:
how perfect would it be for holiday parties? or with a red cardigan for a date night? or on a regular day at the office? i love how simple and classic it is, and that exposed red zipper is so fun. i'd pair it with heels and bracelets for church, then boots and a cardigan for a weekday.
to enter:
1. you've gotta "like" shabby apple on facebook (click here)

2. then, leave a comment on this post letting me know you did so AND letting me know where you would wear this darling dress...or who you would give it to if you won! be sure to include your email address as well so i can get in touch with you should you win (just one entry per person, please).
**woops! forgot to mention--this is only open to US residents.  sorry if that leaves anyone out!**

3. i'll choose a winner (using a random number generator) next friday and announce it here on the blog. 

good luck, and thanks a ton to shabby apple for sponsoring such a fun giveaway!

  5. Gorgeous dress!!! I have been a long-time fan of Shabby Apple on FB.

    I think a better question would be...where wouldn't I wear this dress? My first instinct was that it would be perfect to wear to work.

    Crossing my fingers!

  20. I can honestly say the last dress up outfit I bought for myself was from DI and I got it awhile ago. I have come to the conclusion after a lifetime of hand-me downs that it might be nice to have something new that is not just new to me.
