Shabby Apple: Vintage Zoology

Photobucket

Oh my goodness Lovelies! I am totally crushing on Shabby Apple right now. For those of you who don't know, I love anything vintage or vintage inspired. Shabby Apple always delivers. They are just coming out with their new Zoology Line. Oh my cuteness! Please tell me I am not the only one wishing I was wearing this dress, while dancing in a club in the 40's. I can picture it and man do i look good with my dapper guy on my arm. Yep I have seen Pearl Harbor one too many times. Remember I am a hopeless romantic. Who doesn't think of the 40's and just fall in love with the soldiers returning home from war, kissing their brides. Melts this lady's heart. Well enough of my history love gushing.Let me share some Shabby Apple dresses, so you can gush right along with me.No one wants to gush solo :)

I know right! Total Gush Fest! 

Now these dresses do cost a pretty penny and I definitely do not own one right now. I do however love to look at these for inspiration, when trying to create looks and dresses of my own. I love the vintage fashion trend right now, which is great for us thrifters out there. Vintage is basically what thrift stores are full off. They are years and years of people's fashion cast offs, ripe for the picking. So many people donate similar dresses to thrift stores. I am now on a mission to find knock offs of my own at the thrift store price. 


 

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

  4. I am a HUGE fan of your blog, my dear! But i just wanted to call you out on something. Shabby apple is not exactly cheap, and it's not exactly used clothing. I just thought you were all about helping us be like *you* and making wise choices for you family! I understand that you probably get money or something for featuring them, but sometimes being yourself is better in the long wrong.

    Again, love you and all you do. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I totally agree. I am a thrifter at heart and look to dresses and fashion trends for inspiration. These are for inspiration purposes only. I want to try to find knock offs on my next thrifting trip. I didn't specify originally, but have made that more clear in my post. :>

  5. I too love the vintage looks, and often have been sporting more of the pin-up or rockabilly look. I even got bangs! *gasp* Thank you for sharing the site, it is definitely good for inspiration. I also love Modcloth and Unique Vintage. There are many, many more, but they have some great stuff. Oh, and as for those who sew, Butterick has a whole vintage line of patterns ;)
