Update: The winner of the “Nantucket” dress from Shabby Apple is Christy with the following comment ” I would wear this to my christmas party.” Congratulations Christy and a big thank you to all who participated!

I’m so excited I was offered the opportunity to hand pick one dress from Shabby Apple Dresses for a giveaway to one lucky Fashiongrail fan! Shabby Apple was started by women for women to bring dresses back to what they used to be…a one piece outfit. Their impeccable selection of dresses have a modern, vintage-y feel that is just to die for (not to mention flirty and fun and with subtle hints of sex appeal!).   Guaranteed to flatter any figure, I chose the Nantucket because of its classic silhouette, v-neck collar, full skirt and pockets (I love me a dress with pockets!).  Shabby Apple is also offering Fashiongrail fans a 10% discount good good for 30 days after the giveaway (just enter “fashiongrail10off ” at checkout).

How to enter: Leave a comment below stating where you’d wear this dress; then head on over to Facebook and “Like” the Shabby Apple Dresses fan page (make sure you state that you did so in the comments below). One random winner will be chosen on November 21st. For an extra entry you can also tweet the giveaway.   Shabby Apple will ship the prize directly to the winner.  Must be shipped to an address in the U.S.  Good luck!

The Red Hot Trend

November 13, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

One of the easiest ways to stand out in a crowd is to wear a sexy, head turning hue of red. Not only is it a red hot trend this season but it’s also a staple for the holiday’s.  Before you convince your self that red doesn’t complement your hair or skin tone, consider these tips to choose the right shade of red (whether it’s lipstick, a sexy red mini or earrings)..  Fair-skinned women should look for shades with blue undertones, like cherry. Medium-skinned women should look for basic reds like apple or fire engine red. Darker-skinned women should look for “blood-red” shades like garnet. Give it a shot!

 Red culottes – keep it simple with solid colors and basic pumps.

Red Skinny Jeans by Reuse Jeans a musician endorsed line that are made from 80% recycled denim.  I personally own these and they’re probably one of the comfiest pair of jeans I own!  I’ve paired them with a black blazer, a sequined tank and heels – simple and sexy!

A basic trench is a chic and easy way to incorporate red into your wardrobe.

This boat neck top would look adorable with flared jeans or trousers.

A scrumptious cashmere and wool scarf in this wine/red is perfection!

Looking Outside the Box: Prom Dresses for All Ages

November 9, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I don’t know about you but I get tired of going to the same stores and seeing the same limited selection every time.  I was getting so frustrated searching for a dress to wear to my boyfriend’s formal when I stumbled upon the David’s Bridal site (I swear I wasn’t looking at wedding dresses!).  But who knew they had dresses for all kinds of occasions besides weddings?  They actually have a lot of beautiful prom dresses that were suitable and affordable, including the one below that I fell in love with.

This charmeuse dress is a fun twist on the typical little black dress, but still looks classic.  And I know it’s difficult to tell in this picture but there are subtle sequins throughout the flowered skirt that add just the right amount of sparkle.  I can’t wait to wear it!  With winter formals and holiday parties coming up I’m sure you’re all going to be facing the same dress searching dilemma.  I never thought I’d buy another prom dress but look outside the box and you just might be pleasantly surprised!
