Shabby Apple Amyrillis dress

Shabby Apple is by far my favorite place to shop for women’s dresses, because this online store sells some of the most beautiful vintage clothing for women. When I first spotted the dazzling Amaryllis dress from Shabby Apple, I fell in love. It was the kind of elegant dress that I’ve dreamed of fitting into for years, and I am thrilled that the many hours at our local YMCA have finally resulted in a more defined waistline.

Unfortunately I’ve hit a road bump in my journey to get in top shape again, as I just underwent surgery yesterday. This means no exercise for at least three weeks, and no strenuous exercise for at least six weeks. The Shabby Apple Amaryllis dress is part of my motivation to keep going at a slower pace though, because I want to wear this stunning dress at my favorite holiday party of the year.

I was a bit surprised to see that the Amaryllis dress was pink, as it looked more like a like coral/peachy color in the images on the Shabby Apple website. These days, the girls in the Frugality Is Free family are all about pink though, so the light pink shade of the dress is a perfect fit with my life, now that we have a baby girl in the family.

The gorgeous Amaryllis dress from Shabby apple comes in a very pretty light pink color, which goes with all shades of pink. I especially love it together with a stronger pink color, such as the bright pink color of bougainvillea. Of course, it goes well with black, gold and even silver as well. It is a perfect match with my silver hand bag, oh boy do I love it.

In South Florida, it is often necessary to wear a hat during outdoor events, and this vintage style dress goes great with a sophisticated hat. The elegant style of the Amaryllis dress is sure to impress, and the mesmerizing flowy a line skirt impresses even from a distance. It’s a timeless dress, which has a wonderful vintage feel, while still being current and great for a special occasion.

I have been admiring the beautiful Amaryllis dress for months, and seeing it in person did not disappoint. It is just as elegant and grand as it looks in the photos on the Shabby Apple website, and I am thrilled to finally be able to wear it myself. The Shabby Apple Amaryllis dress is surely a dream dress, and my boys call it “Mommy’s princess dress”. They are insisting that we find a crown, so that I can be a princess for Halloween.

  1. I’ve wanted to try Shabby Apple for awhile now. I think my favorite dress currently is the Stone Haven.

  2. Tara, I love the Stone Haven dress as well.

  3. Looks so cute on, I have never bought anything from there before but their stuff looks cute.

  4. As someone with loads of extra skin due to having gastric bypass, this would NOT look good on me. That being said, it is really cute!!

  5. Ooh, that is really pretty! Hope you get the chance to wear it soon!

  6. Speaking of which, I hope you post photos when you do get to wear it! It’s an unusual shape, it would be really neat to see it on someone other than the model!

  7. It is cute on and I love the color too! It is hard to find a dress that looks great these days. You picked a wonderful one. They also have great clothes there. I sometimes find a dress and when I put it on I am not happy!!
