Finally, this week’s contest

Category Contests

Hey all… sorry for the delay on this, but we ran into some technical difficulties and I didn’t want to post the contest until we were sorted out. And now we are!

So here it is: If you haven’t visited Shabby Apple yet, prepare to drool. They carry all sorts of dresses, from retro to modern, from casual to dressy stunners. I only want, oh, one of each. Heh. And while it won’t be in time for Mother’s Day, one lucky Want Not reader will be receiving a Shabby Apple dress at the end of this contest!

There are two choices (the same dress in two colors); you can be Pretty in Pink, or Barefoot in the Park. While I find myself very attracted to a lot of the retro-glam styles at Shabby Apple, what I love about this particular dress is that it’s perfect for just about anything in the warmer weather. Throw on flip flops or sneakers and run after the kids in casual comfort, or put on some nice jewelry and a platform sandal and suddenly you’re ready for a meal that doesn’t involve cutting up anyone else’s food. Either way, my guess is that you’ll find yourself reaching for this one again and again. (True story: I just bought a dress that looks almost exactly like this, although mine is orange. I joked to my husband that it feels like wearing my pajamas, and so is a clever disguise on days I’m required to actually get dressed.)

So… want to win it? Of course you do! To enter this contest, first go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave me a comment telling me which color dress you want by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Friday, May 7th, 2010. (I’m extending our usual deadline because of the late start.) Winner to be determined by random number generation and flounciness.

Ready? Go!


  1. Barefoot in the Park. Must. Not. Spend. Time. Shopping. Now!

  2. Barefoot in the Park, of course! 🙂 Yay for contests!

  3. Probably blue!

  4. I love being barefoot in the park, and wearing a dress that feels like pajamas!

  5. I do visit Shabby Appple every once in a while, and I just stare, and click, and stare. Haven’t yet pulled the trigger.

    If I could get their website to load I’d tell you which color I like better, but since I can’t get it to load I’ll just pick one. “Barefoot in the Park.”

  6. Barefoot in the park is the only choice for me! Great site. Gotta shop!
