If you are susceptible to feminine dresses, you will find yourself swooning for the pretty confections offered at Shabby Apple Dresses. This online candy store is having a dress designing contest, and yours truly is entering two designs. If selected as a finalist, my design will be considered for their spring line based on popular vote. What are the chances? Fun to play designer for a day anyhow! Here's the contest announcement:
And, here are my entries:
The "Ava": in natural linen or linen-blend with ruffles in teal or white cotton. A detachable ruffled rose belt and covered buttons finish off this ultra-feminine look. I designed this dress to play off the ruffle trend with a classic, conservative profile. Wear it with playfully hued heels to liven up the tailored look.
The "Faye": in light gray knit on top and crisp gray cotton on bottom for a two piece look in once piece comfort. The detachable ruffled rose belt I again see as striking a pose in bright teal. For the office, a brown woven leather belt would would fit nicely instead, drawing cowboy boots, wedge sandals, or flats as suitable accompanists to the outfit.Speaking of Shabby Apple, you may notice that I have a Shabby Apple button on my sidebar.

As for the contest, I'll let you know if my drawings make it!
