Dress Review: Shabby Apple Margaret Dress

Shabby Apple dress with jacket

When Shabby Apple offered to send me a dress to review on here I immediately knew I wanted a piece from the Tartans and Tweeds collection. In fact, when this post goes live, I’ll be in Scotland with Lar! How fitting, no?

Shabby Apple Tartan dress without jacket

The Margaret dress is my official 2013 holiday dress (I don’t know what makes it official). I’ll probably jazz it up a bit for parties with some fancier heels and sparkly accessories like this and this.

The peplum waist is my favorite part because it adds some femininity to the tartan. Speaking of the waist, the dress runs small in the waist. I usually wear XS to S and this S was a snug fit. So if you plan on ordering it, I recommend going up a size.

If you haven’t seen the previous post already, we’re doing a Shabby Apple giveaway! Enter to win this dress. Lar and I think it’s the ultimate holiday dress.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Lar and I will be celebrating with friends (Americans and Brits) on Wednesday so we’ll have left overs on Thursday before we leave our rented Scottish manor house on Friday. It’s going to be wonderful and I plan on being completely stuffed while flying back to the states ;)

    This dress is just too darn cute and indeed very fitting as you are currently in Scotland. The dressier heels and necklace to spruce it up for the holidays will go great I think, I especially love love love the heels.

    Those holiday heels are going on my Christmas wishlist. It’s sounds shallow, but there really is no better pick me up than walking into a party wearing an amazing pair of heels.

    Love your styling as well as the dress, retro but not too self consciously retro. Well done you.
