shabby apple giveaway...

from their website... "Shabby Apple welcomes you to great dresses that make dressing simple. A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add anything...no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!)"
shabby apple is giving one lucky reader this darling anchors away dress. i just love the vintage look of this dress...


also, i love their couture with a conscience campaign...

We at Shabby Apple Dresses love to help women dress but are also commited to helping women live as well. Thus we are supporting the fight against global poverty by partnering with Unitus-a non-profit organization that accelerates access to life-changing financial services for those at the bottom of the economic pyramid. Shabby Apple donates 5% of its net dress sales to support work in India (where Shabby Apple Dresses has sourced many of its dresses and the textiles used to manufacture its dresses). In addition, each Shabby Apple Dresses customer has the opportunity to donate an extra five dollars to Unitus every time she buys a dress. Shabby Apple Dresses and Unitus are involved with 10 of India's most promising microfinance organizations that provide financial services to more than 1.6 million hard-working women and their families.

Every $100 donation from Shabby Apple Dresses provides at least 20 women with access to financial services - and the chance to live a life without poverty.

For many women in the developing world, life is a constant struggle against poverty and hardship. Limited economic opportunity leads to a downward cycle of malnutrition, illiteracy and poor health - a cycle that traps each new generation. Through access to microfinance - financial services such as microcredit loans, insurance, savings and other products - women can overcome poverty and provide a better life for their children.

Shabby Apple wants to help.

With your help, we hope to provide 500 women with micro-credit loans by December 31 of this year. There are two ways to contribute.

1. Buy a dress from Shabby Apple. Shabby Apple donates 5% of all its net profits to Unitus. Every time you order something from Shabby Apple, part of this order funds a micro-credit loan.

2. Donate an extra $5 at the checkout page. When checking out, scroll down and click on the ‘help women worldwide’ button. This donation will directly contribute to a micro-credit loan.

Double your effect:
Enter the Code couture to receive $5 off of any order. Shabby Apple will double its donation for every couture coupon used.

to enter this giveaway simply click over to the website, then leave a comment telling me which shabby apple dress is your favorite.

i will pick a winner on nov. 2nd!

good luck, the dress is darling! :)
