The vintage look has become a fashion trend over the last couple of years. I was late getting to the party, but now I look for vintage style clothing when I can. One of the reasons I like vintage clothing is because I find that they are more modest than other current styles.
Shabby Apple has created a line of vintage inspired clothing that celebrates women, but keeps them modestly covered. Their company is women-owned and operated as well as donates to help other women start their own businesses. Shabby Apple carries dresses, bottoms, tops, swim, shoes and accessories. Their products are reasonably priced and you can shop their sale section to get a great deal. It seems like they are always listing new items!
I was sent their Lighthouse dress. This dress has two layers, one bright yellow underneath and a white over it, to create the soft butter yellow color. It has a removable white bow belt that can be worn with the bow facing any which way. It also has cap sleeves. It is made out of 100% Cotton Voille, which is very light. All the customer reviews for the Lighthouse dress were great, which gave me a good feeling about the dress.
Based on the measurements, I ordered a size large. I have a larger bust, so I always base my dimensions off of that. I was debating between a medium and a large, and chose the large. Unfortunately it didn’t fit. That is when I learned about Shabby Apple's amazing return policy. I don’t buy clothes online often, just because it is a hassle to return them. Not with Shabby Apple!
If your clothes or shoes don’t fit or when you put the item on and it doesn’t look as great as you thought it would, then you can exchange or return it for FREE! Your clothing must be unwashed and unworn and can be exchanged and returned within 30 days of purchase. Of course there are limits and more specific details, but for me, it was simple to exchange my size large dress for a size medium. All I needed to do was download a return/exchanger form and a return label. You can read more about their return policy HERE.
My new dress fits perfectly! The top pleated part of the dress was not as snug as I wanted it to be so I just added a safety pin to keep it flat against my chest. I like that the belt can be worn with the dress any way I like. I have tried it different ways and I like it in the front and to the left. The soft yellow color reminds me of spring and summer, which is when I will wear the dress since it is light. I think the dress pairs nicely with flats!
The Lighthouse dress is currently on sale for $59, originally $89.
