A Dress Giveaway! Perfect for a Roman Holiday!

This dress can be yours! For real!

I don't do giveaways very often, so it has to be for something I really love, which is the case today. Shabby Apple is a wonderful online boutique with a fabulous selection of women's dresses for reasonable prices. I especially love their vintage-style dresses!

Shabby Apple asked me to pick out my favorite dress and they would give it to one of you, dear readers! All you have to do is a leave a comment (make sure I have some way to reach you) before Monday at 5 pm and let me know your dream travel destination!

Let me tell you about this lovely dress, called Spanish Steps: A luxe jersey cap sleeve top is gathered at the waist with a wide satin sash, and a veritable bouquet of appliqu├ęd, ruched flowers and leaves adorns the full sateen skirt that swirls just below your knee. An $86 dress can be yours.

Doesn't it just make you want to hop on a plane to Rome!?

Contest will go until Monday, Aug. 29th at 5 pm CST, at which time I will pick a winner to be announced the next day. In the meantime, if you simply can't wait that long, Shabby Apple is offering my readers a 10% discount. Simply use the code "benign10off" at checkout to get your discount.



  1. Um, YES! I have been oogling Shabby Apple for so long and just haven't taken the plunge yet. If I won this, it would be the start of a beautiful addiction. :)

    My dream travel destination would have to be...Italy. Anywhere in Italy would do just fine! Or doubling back to Paris. :)

  2. That dress is gorgeous! Absolutely love it!

  3. J'adore Shabby Apple!

    I absolutely need to go to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I currently have a 5 year plan. Maybe the Spanish Steps dress will make it's debut there. ;)

    I'm dying to do a tour of the Greek isles! I keep telling myself that one day it will happen!

  17. Gorgeous dress--what a lovely, karma-boosting thing to do! I'd be so tempted to keep it for myself if I were you. :)

    My travel dream this year (and the past 7 years really) is the Camino de Santiago along the north Coast of Spain. I will get there soon!

  18. Thank you for sharing! I never enter these things, but how could I pass this up? What a beautifully romantic dress -- such a divine throwback to the Italian streets of the '50s. :)

    My travel dream would be a return to Paris in the beautiful fall months, followed by a drive through the country vineyards and down to the beaches on the southern coast of France. No biggie ;)

  19. Beautiful!

    I think my dream vacation would be back to Ireland for an entire month, staying in one of their beautiful castles of course. ;-)

  20. That dress is FABULOUS! Hmmm...the perfect place to wear it...

    My dream vacation is New Zealand. Has been for a while...it is just finding the time to go (and money) because I would want to spend a solid month there to really enjoy it. And I would like to see the entire country - the beaches, mountains, ALL of it!

    And drink lots of wine whilst there!

  21. Cuba, defenitely Cuba! It's a beautiful, gorgeous dress and it would look just amazing strolling through the streets where the time has stood still.

  22. OMG!! How beautiful! I could definitely see myself int this!!
    While I have never been out of the US before I would love love to travel to Europe and backpack through if possible. A little more difficult now with almost 2 little ones but a dream nonetheless! Then, I would be be thrilled to go and visit Asia and travel through Jerusalem. What a dream, right?! :-)

  23. Dreams come in various styles, and when looking at this dress, it takes my mind and captures my thoughts to dream, to dream of the vacation to Rome, to Tuscany, to the country of Italy... to be with the man I love and look so beautiful and to just smile, smile with love and joy. This dress, takes my thoughts to that place of dreams... to travel in my mind and take me to that place of a beautiful location I have always wanted to go.. The movie Under the Tuscan Sun comes to my thoughts when looking at that dress, but I would take the man of my dreams, my fiance with me, and let him adore me in this dress... Love it... jenberryhill@yahoo.com

  24. Barcelona! I went once and have been dying to go back and bring my fiance with me this time. That dress is so gorgeous!
