Pardon me for getting all squeaky for a second.

But I WON!

(Did you hear the squeak? It was there.)

I have not-so-great luck. I don't ever really win anything. But I enter lovely giveaways all the same like nobody's business, because I feel the same way about them I feel about plane crashes: the odds are slim it will happen, but really the odds for everyone are the same.

Does that make sense?

(This is why I'm terrified of flying.)

I digress! I entered the lovely Freckles Chick's (if you don't read her...go start!) Shabby Apple giveaway last week, an adorable boutique home to only the most amazing dresses ever. And when she posted the results tonight, I almost fell out of my chair when I saw my profile picture next to MY comment next to MY NAME!

Here are the colors of the dress I get to choose from:



What do you guys think I should pick? I'm leaning toward the green color, as I think it goes well with brown hair and brown eyes. It'll be a perfect summer-into-fall work dress, no?

(PS- a green, cotton dress worn to my brother's rehearsal dinner at the end of the summer will be the perfect complement to my fancy pink cocktail dress I bought for his wedding! Scratch that purchase off the list!)


  1. You can't lose! They are both great choices! So jealous, I never EVER win giveaways- even when few people enter! (now I shall go pout in the corner.)

  2. Go with L'Amour!!! Congrats on your win... I'm a little jealous seeing as I was comment number 14! <3

  3. Aww Melissa! Sending good bloggy luck your way, haha!

    So sorry Avant-Garde! On the bright side, your giveaway karma is way up!! I'm thinking L'Amour too!

  4. OOOHHH! Congrats to you! I like the green one as well! I have a Shabby Apple dress and wear it constantly! You will love it!!!

  5. Thanks so much girls! Just emailed Freckles Chick and said I'm going with the green!

    Meghan, would you be able to advise me as to what numeric sizes Shabby Apple's sizes correspond? Would a medium be in the 4-6 range or the 6-8 range?

  6. I went through a phase where I won a whole slew of giveaways back-to-back so now I get seriously pissed when I don't win. Haha. Way to go on winning, though...and such a fabulous prize!

  7. Haha see, Stephany, YOU used UP all your giveaway karma! Hahaha.

  8. Dammit I love both of them sooo much.
