A Day Off from DIY…

I‘m taking a day off from DIY. I hope you don’t mind but I’m one of those bloggers who loves to host a fun giveaway.  So pardon the break away from DIY for one post.  We’re passionate about DIY.  There’s little glamor donning paint in your hair, old work clothes and safety gear but sometimes a girl just wants to feel pretty too and when Shabby Apple contacted me about doing a review or giveaway, I couldn’t resist. I bought one for me and saved the giveaway for you.  If you get around in the blogging community, you’re probably familiar with Shabby Apple and their amazing vintage women’s dresses.
Shabby Apple is generously giving away one of their beautiful dresses to one lucky DIY Show Off reader! I chose this one for the giveaway.  If the dress boasts ‘a true gem of a multi-tasker’, it’s perfect for a DIY diva!  Maybe a little ‘multi-tasking’ dust will magically absorb through your skin and if not, at least you look amazing! 
Amethyst
A true gem of a multi-tasker, the Amethyst dress, with it’s playful puff sleeves and no-nonsense shirt collar, is perfect for the office or a weekend getaway.  This plum-colored beauty sports faux-wrap styling—the skirt closes all the way—giving you the look of your favorite wrap dress without the anxiety of worrying whether or not you’re unintentionally showing too much leg.
So even though we look like this most days…
It’s fun to dress like this every once in a while:
In order to “know” what I’d be giving away to one dear DIY Show Off friend, I had to do a little detective work. I had to test drive Shabby Apple for myself. 😉  I had to know that it’d be of fine quality. So for my birthday, I bought myself the “Yorkshire“. I love this dress.  I love the quality, fit and how good it feels to wear it.  I loved the vintage vibe. Hey, if you’re turning another year older and feeling vintage, why not embrace it and dress the part, right?
Much more appropriate attire for a dinner date at Bravo for Italian cuisine (thanks to the DIY Club girls)…

Enjoy the day and good luck!
