What do I like about Shabby Apple? Dresses with a vintage twist, darling skirts that make a lady feel like twirling, and a certain Rosie the Riveter vibe present in every piece they design. This classy company run by women makes women beautiful in its gorgeous clothing; they're self-described "feminine feminists." I love that.
There's something very appealing to me about being a girly-girl - wearing makeup, dressing nicely, and all of that - but sometimes it's difficult to be taken seriously if you care too much about your appearance. Shabby Apple's apparel (think sweet pencil skirts in pastel shades and conservative blouses with pretty details, a la Zooey Deschanel) let young professional women like me to show off their feminine sides while still looking the part in the workplace.
