I am a huge fan of long sleeved dresses. I am sure that has something to do with cold Colorado winters and chilly Spring/Autumn nights. I cannot count the times that I wanted to wear a dress (or needed to) and then spent forever trying to figure out what cardigan matched best or what coat to wear. Where as with a long sleeved dress, you are good to go! If it is Winter, add the fleece lined leggings or tights, if it is Spring/Autumn go with bare legs.

I am always on the lookout and this Shabby Apple dress is the newest long sleeved dress in my collection. In fact, I am packing it with me for my Washington DC work trip this week – I think it is Capital Hill material. This dress is perfect for the office or a fun date night which makes me love it even more. You know that I am all about versatility!

What type of dresses are your favorites? Do you find that you are always looking for a certain fit/style? Have you ever worn any of Shabby Apple’s dresses?

    Wow this dress is absolutely lovely, and I have to say that although I never really thought about it before, I am loving the long sleeves too! The material gives this dress a very vintage Jackie-O feel but somehow the long sleeves make it feel modern. And this location is so beautiful – those tiles on the stairs are just stunning. Where is this?

  • This dress is lovely! I've always eyed Shabby Apples dresses but have never actually purchased one. Do you like the quality?

  • Love this dress! I agree, it's very Capitol Hill (and very Claire Underwood, in a good way!). It's nice to have a winter option that doesn't require a cardigan.
