what i wore wednesday {& a shabby apple giveaway!} CLOSED


happy wednesday, friends!

i have something really special for you today – a shabby apple giveaway!  just be warned:  you’re about to see a whole lotta me in a whole lotta red.

if you’re new here to wiww, its a place i started to keep myself accountable to getting dressed each day.  putting a little effort into myself has made a huge difference on how i feel and is actually pretty fun!  thanks to all of you who have joined me!  another benefit to posting weekly outfit pictures is that i push myself to try new things more often, hence the pictures below.

i am not a red girl.  in fact, i own very few items with red in them.  but when i saw this dress, i had to have it!  actually, i spent probably close to a month choosing which dress i wanted shabby apple to send me (thank you thank you thank you!) because there are so many amazing choices.  but i saw this dress and remembered my friend tracy wearing it at SNAP and she looked amazing in it.  i figured i’d go bold and try something new!

so here it is:  one dress, three ways.

i thought for the most part i don’t get too dressy, so how could i dress this down for daytime?  red is pretty bold, so i didn’t want to go with black accents because that would only step up the contrast.  adding boots and a jean jacket make anything right for daytime, am i right?  i even could have added a simple leather belt, but i kept it simple and showed off the cute bow detail of the dress.

i added a simple deer necklace from lisa leonard to break up all the red.  i love the feminine details of the dress:  the boat neck, the fitted waistline, the lacy hem.

boots – steve madden

jean jacket – forever 21

 but if i were to wear this dress out for a date or a special event (hello christmas party!), black was the perfect accent color for the accessories.

 a necklace with a longer length adds some sparkle and the simple suede wedges keep it dressy, yet comfy.

necklace – forever 21

wedges – payless

this is where i really had to push myself, and i think this is my favorite outfit of all!  i wanted something unexpected and eclectic – mixing patterns and colors.

you can’t go wrong with polka dots and leopard print, and a little turquoise never hurt anyone.

remember when you’re mixing patterns to have at least one color in common between the prints to have it make a little bit of sense.  and turquoise almost works as a neutral – it goes with just about every other color!

cardigan – forever 21

flats – target

necklace – ruby rose

so, yay for you guys because you can go pick out your own dress, too!  not only is shabby apple offering a $100 gift certificate to one lucky winner, but they also have a discount code for you all!  just use code “pleatedpoppy10off” for a 10% discount.

    you look beautiful friend!! I love the last look, although you know i think those boots are to die for!!

  2. 2

    Beautiful dress. You look amazing!

  3. 3

    Wow that red dress is awesome! I love the casual style best, but you did a good job with all of them. I would never think of pairing those boots with them, but they work wonderfully!

    Shabby Apple really does have great styles! I like the One For My Baby Remake dress the best! It’d be perfect for a night out swing dancing!!

    What a cute dress. I love the different looks you created. I love their Barefoot in the Park dress … it would be perfect with tights and boots come winter time.

  5. 5

    I love the Truman dress, it looks comfortable and I think it could be accessorized in many ways to bring it from autumn through to fall. Love it!!

  6. 6

    You look gorgeous! I love the Alice dress-they have sooooo many pretty options, but that is the front runner! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  7. 7

    I love the Animalia Dress-mostly for the color but that skirt has some beautiful movement!
    awesome giveaway!

  8. 8

    Ok I LOVE this dress! Lucky you! I love how you styled it but I also think my favorite is the last one! It is SO hard to pick a favorite from Shabby Apple but I’ve seriously loved the ‘one for my baby’ dress ever since they came out with it!
    Crossing my fingers!!

  9. 9

    I love their whimsical, vintage style… makes me want to travel. I feel like I didn’t have to go far into their website to fall in love with the new Animalia dress – love the color and the tie at the top!

  10. 10

    I know what you mean – I have lost on the Shabby Apple website before – so many beautiful dresses! If I won I think I would either get the desert modern dress (http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-1524-desert-modern.aspx) because I’m keen to try a maxi dress or perhaps the headliner dress!

    You look lovely in red by the way!

    Fingers crossed!

  11. 11

    Gorgeous dress, love how you’ve accessorised it, the boots are fab! I think my fave is the pattern mixing as well, such a statement! x

  12. 12

    Love the dress you look gorgeous and I love the way you have changed it up. Is the giveaway international? Looks like a fab site.

  13. 13

    I love the Desert Modern {if I went long} & Highland Light {if I went short} dresses, and keep trying to win one or the other! ;o)
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. 14

    I love the red. It is beautiful! I like the Bon Voyage dress. I love that it is a simple dress, but has the fun, flouncy skirt!

  15. 15

    I have been looking and looking for a dress to wear for my daughter’s christening; I think The Golden Afternoon dress may just be perfect!

  16. 16

    Like you, I very rarely wear red, but did buy a red dress a little while ago and love it. It’s very versatile like yours. Look 3 is my fav as well, very clever styling :-)

    A big thank you for the link up!

  17. 17

    You’re right, it’s almost impossible. I love the Mary Jane Watson but the purple Tea Time dress is stunning.

    Connie Tacazon says:

    Love the aloha dress.

  21. 21

    Desert Modern – thanks for sharing a great new site to shop on!

  22. 22

    I LOVE this dress!!! And love how you made 3 different outfits out of it.

  23. 23

    I love, love, love the dress you chose. I think I would choose something from Shabby Apple’s maternity line for myself. I am pregnant with baby #3, and I’ve never splurged on a cute maternity dress. I adore the Finding Out dress and think it would be so fun to wear it throughout this pregnancy!

  24. 24

    Love it with the boots!

  25. 25

    The dress you picked out is beautiful and what a fun post remixing it 3 ways! Shabby Apple has some great items for sure. My favorite dress is the Calooh! Callay! It’s perfect for remixing all seasons :)

  26. 26

    The red dress is great! So many beautiful dresses to chose from. It was hard to narrow it down, but Cayenne. Your red dress inspired me!

  27. 27

    I love your red dress! and I love shabby apple’s clothes!! I like their elizabeth island dress a lot!!

  28. 28

    Loving the After Class dress for fall!!!

  29. 29

    Love the Che Bella!!!

  30. 30

    Thanks, as always, for hosting this fun linky! I love the outfits that you came up with using just your one red dress…I’d love to do more posts like that- to encourage people to use the clothes they have in a practical variety of ways! As for the SA giveaway (YAY!), my favorite dress is (for the moment!): 4.0 – such a super cute look for fall :-) Hope you’re having a wonderful day!!!

  31. 31

    I love the Nantucket dress, simply beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway. :-)

    Katie Greenlaw says:

    Love your outfits. I love the Animalia in Kelly green…out of my comfort zone….but gorgeous.

  33. 33

    Shabby Apple how I heart you! Soooo many pretty dresses to choose from. One of my favorites is One For My Baby…it has polka dots, it’s mint green and it twirls…what more could you want?! :) I think it would be fun to wear in the ’50’s style but could also be switched up with boots and a long cardigan. Great giveaway!

  34. 34

    Love the Bali Ha’i.. Love the 3 looks you did with the dress!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  35. 35
    Melissa F says:

    I’ve had the Toe the Line Chambray shirt dress pinned for ages. I’d love to play dress up with that one…I love your styling of a dressy dress for everyday.

  36. 36

    Love the poly hill!

  37. 37

    i want that red dress, you look beautiful! I am a winter so red is one of my colors! I like how you can dress it up or down! thanks!

  38. 38

    i loved the beachcomber dress…really all of their stuff is gorgeous!!!

  39. 39

    I love the Mariposa Grove dress!

  40. 40

    You look so cute in red! You should definitely wear it more often :)

  41. 41

    Love the red dress on you…especially the 3rd styling. It’s so hard to choose but I’d go with the A+ or After Class. So ready for fall!

  42. 42

    Ok, I love the different ways you styled the Shabby Apple dress! I think my favorite is with the boots and denim jacket. Love the look. I think I would choose their red maxi skirt, but I am not sure. I flip-flop every time I look at the photos.

  43. 43

    such a beautiful dress. I Love the PUCA PUCARA dress.

  44. 44

    I’m Late! I’m Late! in the Mad Hatter collection is beautiful (well, they all are :)

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Love your site!

  45. 45
    Mary Richards says:

    I think the Aphrodite dress in the maternity collection is just darling.

  46. 46

    I’ve been admiring Shabby Apple for quite some time. I’ve put items in my basket and never checked out. Lois Lane is to die for.

  47. 47

    I think I love the Red Queen dress you are wearing the best! It is so pretty and versatile. Thanks.

  48. 48

    Lindsey, it really is ridiculously true. I could spend hours on their site enjoying the photos alone!

    Favey fave…
    Animalia – that green on my redheaded self? Good stuff.

    And if I had a flat tummy, I’d order the Francine skirt in a heartbeat!

  49. 49

    Great looks! I love a lot of the Shabby Apple dresses, but I really think the French Quarter is feminine and versitile, so I would choose that one.

  50. 50

    I have a big wedding to attend in a month and I’d love to go in one of these dresses! I’m loving the bellisima dress!

  51. 51

    I was huming lady in red as I was looking/shopping at the offerings from shabby apple. I love the polly hill dress and would be diving into the unknown territory that is red. Have a great day! ks

  52. 52

    I think the glacier dress is really cute. Love how unique they are!

  53. 53

    I love the Shabby Apple’s style…so vintage! It was definitely hard to choose just one favorite, but I think I am going to have to pick the Mauna Kea. Love the color and the flower detail!

  54. 54
    Kristin M says:

    I think Desert Modern maxi but I reserve the right to change my mind! Too many fun choices!

  55. 55

    My fav dress is Desert Modern from the Twin Palms collection. Her site has really evolved since I last visited- its awesome!

  56. 56

    I LOVE Shabby Apple! It’s so hard to pick just one, but I love the Desert Modern maxi dress! It looks so comfy!

  57. 57

    I would love to win so I can buy the Alice dress. It would look so cute to wear to student teaching!

    I have been drooling over the El Capitan dress for months now.

  63. 63

    Serenade stood out to me, but I have a long list of favorites :)

  64. 64

    I love their dresses! I have had my eye on the Baciami! for awhile now…

  65. 65

    LOVE Shabby Apple – and LOVE the “Summer Wind” dress!! So pretty!

  66. 66

    I think you look great in red! The denim jacket with it is my fave. :)
    I love the Balderdash skirt in, you guessed it, RED! xo

  69. 69

    all the dresses are so cute!! You made the red one look amazing!!

  70. 70

    Your red dress is so cute! I like the last look best as well. I love all of their dress but I think I like the Carnival dress best, in blue :) Thanks!

  71. 71

    I like the dress called “North Shore” – so many cute dresses to choose from!

  72. 72

    You look stunning!!! I love the third way you styled the dress best. Really gorgeous!

    I’ve had my eye on the I’m Late I’m Late dress from the Mad Hatter collection for a while. I just love the navy lacey goodness.

  73. 73

    Love that dress! My favorite way you styled it is with the leopard flats and polka dot cardi…super great! It was super hard to decide wich is my favorite dress but I narrowed it down to Ivy League & Primavera! Green’s and mustards are kind of my fav. colors right now…and orange! Fall colors are beginning to call me name!

  74. 75

    I love the piazza navona dress!

    leslie adams says:

    They have an orange wool houndstooth dress that I am in love with right now and I pinned it a few days ago– it has a turn down collar. I forgot the name. I won’t go back to their site to look because each time I do I spent too much time drooling …. thanks for a chance to win!!!

  76. 77

    Please don’t make me pick one! Ugh, ok I think I would pick something from the “all that jazz” collection or maybe the “65,” Or “oo la la.” I just can’t pick one…… this place if AMAZING!

  77. 78

    I can see why it took a month of looking to choose a dress. I like the Anamalia dress-it’s a beautiful color and shape…and realized that I’ve pinned a dress from shabby apple that’s still available-too!

  78. 79

    I’ve had my eye on the ‘beauty mark’ dress for a long time…their site is one of those that is on my day dream list. Love it! I loved all three looks…very pretty! =0)

  79. 80

    I love the one you chose! Beautiful!

  80. 81

    I love the one for my baby dress! It is so cute and modern that also looks very vintage!

  81. 82

    To stick with the red theme, I really like the Cayenne dress!

  82. 83

    They have beautiful dresses. I liked the Serenade.

  83. 84

    I so love the “top of her class” dress! ^_^

  84. 85

    I love all the ways you styled that red dress!
    My favorite Shabby Apple dress is the Phi Beta Kappa- I’m really into navy lately!

  85. 86

    I’ve been eyeing the Blue Eyes dress for months! Cute site!

    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  87. 88

    Love the Bon Voyage dress :)

  88. 89

    thank you for posting the discount code and hosting the giveaway!!! so hard to choose a favorite, so i choose three– animalia, desert modern, and bellisima!

  89. 90

    You look great in your red dress! I’d choose the metropolitan or panorama blouse. I need tops!

  90. 91

    WHAT A CUTE DRESS! And your styling of it is divine. :)

  91. 92

    I think I would choose a dress called “Champs Elysees”. It looks really retro and I like the navy blue color. But, it would be a hard choice. Pick me! :-)

  92. 93

    I love the Andes skirt. And I love the way you styled that red dress! I always enjoy WIWW.

  93. 94

    I love the Bernini dress!

  94. 95

    Lisa Thomas says:

    I LOVE all of their dresses. This was very, very hard. Antiquated is beautiful, Aquaria, Pantheria, I’m Late I’m Late ! – Red Queen – SO MANY !!!

  97. 98

    I love the Animalia dress! I’ve been loving dresses with pleated skirts lately.

  98. 99

    That dress looks awesome! Way to step out of your comfort zone.

    I am a high school teacher and the Prom Coordinator so I think that I’d go for something pretty that I could wear for prom… the Boogie Woogie dress looks perfect!

  99. 100
    Tiffany Hatfield says:

    I LOVE the Tigris and Aquaria! They are all super cute but those were my favs. Your red dress is pretty awesome too!

  100. 101

    I just fell head over heels in love with “Frabjous Day.” I’m loving the orange/teal combo lately and the pleated skirt is so feminine.

  101. 102

    I love the Casablanca!

  102. 103
    Kelly O'Donohoe says:

    I like so many of them! But I think the Aintree is my current fav… Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  110. 111

    Red is great color for you! Love that you went outside your comfort zone :) I’m loving the Baciami dress :)

  111. 112
    Sharon Traywick says:

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I really like the Puca Pucara dress.

  112. 113

    wow, you weren’t kidding when you suggested taking an hour or two to look through their website! (and to think i’m supposed to be cleaning!)

    it’s a toss up between the cider and mariposa grove dresses! they’re too lovely to choose just one!

  113. 114

    I like the Panthera dress for dressier events, but I think it would be too warm for me since it is partly wool. So I guess I would have to go with Serenade. Looks cool and summery! :)

  114. 115
    Kim Roepke says:

    Hmm.. so hard to choose. I love the Sophia necklace, it could go with a variety of outfits.

  115. 116

    Gosh, there are so many! I liked Extra Credit.

  116. 117

    I love AQUARIA …simply gorgeous!

  117. 118

    I didn’t have time to look through all of them this morning yet, but so far my favorite is Blue Eyes…love it!

  118. 119

    Great giveaway! I adore the Alice dress. Fingers crossed!

    Melancholy (dot) smile (at) yahoo (dot) com

  119. 120

    Just like you, I’m not a red girl either. And I never looked good on red. But you did a great job to put on such cute ensembles with that dress. They all look great and I like the idea on how you put the outfits together but maybe I could copy it with a different dress color. =)

  120. 121

    You were absolutely right. I wanted every dress. It would take me months to figure out which top 5 I wanted, but…in the nature of the giveaway, I picked one that will be versatile but also great to wear to a wedding as a personal attendant. Black Oak from the Yosemite collection. Love reading your blog Lindsey!

  121. 122

    I think the Mauna Kea is super cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

  122. 123

    I think I would say Mariposa Grove or North Shore, although every time I go back and look I change my mind! :)

  123. 124

    It would be like picking a favorite child. But that red dress is pretty hard to pass up.

  124. 125

    Love the Academy Award skirt (how fun would that be to wear to a party?) and the fact that they have XS and even XXS sizes in so many of their offerings!

  125. 126

    I love Overboard. What a cute date night dress.

  126. 127

    My favorite is with the black and I LOVE that first picture of you in the middle from the side- so pretty! I went to Shabby Apple (one of my already favorites) but did not see a place to enter to win the $100 gift certificate….??

  127. 128

    Love the red dress! I like the PH.D..

  128. 129

    i love the one you picked! gorgeous! if i were picking a different one i think i’d pick the gray fox.

  129. 130

    I LOVE Shabby Apple. Been staring at their stuff for a while. Need to actually buy one of their gems!

  130. 131

    I love so many of their dresses, but if I had to choose one I think I’m in love with “New Caladonia”. The cut and the color are perfect. Thanks for the chance :)
    Love your outfit, but I can’t wear ecclectic, I’m just too worried it won’t work.

  131. 132

    I love your red dress! If I won, the Eliza necklace would be mine…pinks, corals, white and owls – what’s not to love?!

  132. 133

    Love everything you did with the red dress!

  133. 134
    Malinda Lloyd says:

    Oh my! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Shabby Apple!! so pretty! this is my favorite dress of the moment:

    though they have so many pretty ones, it’s hard to decide.

  134. 135

    Oh my, I do not know how in the world any other dress could beat how you look in this one. I especially love it with the sweater and flats and the denim jacket!!! If I had to pick any dress I would go with the Bon Voyage! :)

  135. 136

    I think that dress is really nice for an evening look! How cool that they gave it to you.

  136. 137

    I already knew which dress I wanted, the Bon Voyage. I love it!! Thanks for the discount code and the contest ;)

  137. 138

    oh i love the G. Cooper! so smart and classic.

  138. 139

    Oh my, so many great choices, I think my favorite is the Ph. D dress. I’d get it in black to go with my tall black boots. :-)

    You look darling in your dress, I like the third outfit with the cardigan and turquoise!

  139. 140

    Oh, I love the A+ Blue Shirt Dress. It’s adorable and will be so cute with tights this fall!

  140. 141

    I think i like the yorkshire. All so cute!

  141. 142

    You look amazing in red! I love the jean jacket look!

    Shabby Apple has been a fav of mine for a LONG time, and recently I have been drooling over the Elizabeth Island dress (http://www.shabbyapple.com/p-1612-elizabeth-islands.aspx).

  142. 143

    Such a feminine dress! Excellent choice. You look lovely, Lindsey! And such great accessories. I’m a fan of your leopard print shoes. :)

    My favorite Shabby Apple dress is the Bon Voyage dress but, let’s face it, all their dresses are beautiful. Thanks for the chance!

  145. 146

    I LOVE the Humboldt Current Skirt, but you’re right, there are SOOOO many to choose from. I’d have to have days to decide. YIKES!

  146. 147

    oh my goodness! shabby apple is something i sometimes drool over… i beyond love “overboard”. but i don’t think there’s anything there that i don’t like!

  147. 148

    I love their Desert Modern dress and Barefoot in the Park dress, and so many others. I love the way you’ve styled the Red Queen dress, too!

  148. 149

    I love your dress and so many at Shabby Apple! I love the cotton tiered dress.

  154. 155

    You look amazing in red! You should definitely buy more! Thanks so much for starting WIWW. It has really pushed me to “try” with my clothes. After having 3 kids, I really needed some help getting back into fashion, and I love getting ideas from real women with real budgets!!

    I checked out Shabby Apple, and I love the Ursa dress and the Race Point Skirt.

  185. 186

    I think the red dress is stunning on you! Thanks for letting us know about Shabby Apple–I’d never been there before, but will definitely be back. Maybe to buy the TUILERIES dress. So pretty!

  186. 187

    I had never been to their site and just love all their styles! I love the Toe the Line Chambray Shirt Dress.. it’s so hard to find dresses that work for breastfeeding, but this one looks like a winner!! Thanks ; )

    Danielle King says:

    So I didn’t have hours and hours to look at the site (which has changed a ton since last time I looked!), I ran through the newer lines…. and I really like the Tigris dress! I’m not an orange girl, but maybe I’ll get luck like you and that gorgeous red dress and find lots of ways to rock it!

  189. 190

    I love the Arripidae dress!

    Mary Beth says:

    Oooh I love the Red Queen dress…I’m just a bit afraid the bright red might not work well on me…it’s such a gorgeous dress though, and I love all the ways you styled it! So…I guess my favorite would be the Animalia dress. Or the Arripidae… I cannot decide! Just might have to buy them both!!

  195. 196

    I’m in a wedding in the fall, so I would get my bridesmaids dress..which is up to me as long as it’s a fall color. So I’d go with the Cider dress.

  196. 197

    I LOVE Shabby Apple! My friend just wore the red queen to a wedding. For me? The Elizabeth Islands has been in my cart for awhile…

  197. 198

    Am loving their tess bow skirt. Would be adorable with some little booties for fall or heels for work!

  198. 199

    Beachcomber looks so comfy! Thanks for all of the great styling ideas!

  199. 200

    What a great giveaway, I love the dress you picked.! Red is one of my favorite colors. There are so many things I like at Shabby Apple, but 2 of my favs are the Racquet Club dress- can’t do wrong with any thing in nautical and the Panthera dress. I think this dress has a great fold over collar and the wool fabric would be great for fall and winter. I linked back to your giveway:)

    Thank you !

  208. 209

    I love to see different ways to wear the same dress–especially the last one–so unexpected! I think the Creme Noeud shift dress would be fun and so totally out of my “normal” style!

  209. 210

  215. 216

    I’d have to go with one of their swimsuits but can’t decide between the Lagoon, the Marschino, or the Ondina.
    My husbands parents are taking all of us on an island vacation in December when he’s home on leave. My goal is to lose the baby weight by then and I think a gorgeous new suit would be great motivation!

  221. 222

    I love how you styled this dress in so many wonderful ways! My favorite is it’s sister dress, the Alice! Red is, most unfortunately, an awful color against my complexion, but that blue in the Alice dress would be perfect.

  222. 223

    Tigris & Animalia

    but I loved to get any dress really!!

  237. 238

    I love the Pont Neuf dress in the Ohlala collection. REALLY cute stuff all around tho!

  238. 239

    So…I’m not brave enough to stand in front of a mirror, photograph, and link up, BUT, I always look forward to these Wednesday parties. It’s like dress-up for big people. My favorite way you wore your red dress was the last one, Lindsay. Mixing patterns is the way to go…now I know!

  239. 240

    ooh- ingrid, or eldorado. or a new swimsuit. I could definitely use one of those!

  240. 241

    I love the one you got, the red queen. I have been pinning for lake titicaca and antiquated but I might have to add another to my wishlist.

  241. 242

    Seven Seas in Seersucker is just gorgeous!!

  242. 243

    Swim mini!

    You did a great job with that beautiful dress!! Looks great! I love the Aintree casual dress…and ALL the wrap dresses!!

  245. 246

    I like the Da Vinci dress. Not sure it would work for this nursing mama, but there weren’t many that would. The hem on your new red dress looks so pretty!

  246. 247

    Love the Animalia dress…I would hope that I would have the courage to get it. It’s beautiful, but it definitely is an attention-getter!

  247. 248

  249. 250

    I love the One For My Baby dress!

  250. 251

    how funny. i really hadn’t visited before we chatted. i actually got fashion advice from kathleen, simply silly life. i found leopard flats to go with my red (“i love lucy” like) dress, gold jewelry, and a cream lace tank that will barely peak. i think it will be classy-sassy… you know, like me (ha!)

    i want to win THIS give away! the “heart of mine” dress would be PERFECT on me. i want it.

  251. 252

    I love the Aristocrat!

  252. 253
