A Halloween Week Giveaway with Shabby Apple!

Halloween week is here and thanks to sensational sponsor, Shabby Apple, we have a fun giveaway straight out of "Wonderland"!  


Shabby Apple is an online dress boutique selling women’s dresses, casual dresses, skirts, and women’s apparel. They now have a line of fashion jewelry and accessories. The first time I visited their website, I was taken aback by the beauty of their creations. Today, I count Shabby Apple among my favorite sources of fashion inspiration. One of the things I love most about their company is a fact that they are always designing new dresses for women, as well as coming out with entirely new fashion lines. I look at each of their new fashion lines when they debut and wonder how they could possibly top it. Then they come out with their next line and it is just as wonderful as the last.    

I'm a big fan of vintage dresses and this is one of my favorites, the Hackney dress, from their "sidesaddle" vintage inspired collection:

One of my favorites in their boutique collections is the West Coast Swing dress from their "1943" collection:

I am in love with this pair of "Dazzling Day" high heels from their shoe collection:

I'm crazy about this Sugar Pie Headband. Go figure?

So now, to our giveaway. Come take a journey with me to see Shabby Apple's line of jewelry inspired by "Alice in Wonderland"...

                                  I am a fan of key necklaces and this one is an exceptional piece.

Their "Key to Wonderland" necklace is an antique brass vintage reproduction skeleton key suspended on a 24” long chain. I love it that it is handmade in the USA.

                                                    I love the detail in this bracelet:

Their "Simply Alice" bracelet has grey/blue fresh water pearls finished with a cream satin bow, or pale pink fresh water pearls finished with a beautiful black satin bow. Bracelet has metal chain and lobster clasp for easy removal without compromising the perfect bow. 

"Poker Face Alice" is a gold metal multi-chain bracelet adorned with several gold charms and finished with a lobster clasp closure.

"The Chesire Cat" is a rectangle brown and black speckled beads with antique copper chain and lobster clasp closure.

Shabby Apple has a wonderful Facebook page that is one of my favorite places for delightful fashion inspiration. You can "like" their page here to get in on special promotions and exclusive discounts.

One of you will win the Shabby Apple "Key to Wonderland" necklace! (ARV: $52.00)  

If you are not the winner, you can still get in on a sweet deal. For the next 30 days, they are giving The Southern Fried Bride readers 10% off their purchase on the Shabby Apple website. The promotional code is "southernfriedbride10off".
