#Everydayglamour Shabby Apple Giveaway

Phew, what a week! I was planning/celebrating my birthday and barely got around to do anything for fun on the Internets. It can be very hard to blog when you get home when you spend your whole day running a website. And truth be told I was barely home at all last week.
What I did manage to do was to keep alive the birthday tradition I've observed for just about ever: wear something nice on my birthday. I chose the Upper East Side dress from Shabby Apple, which I got a gift card for through a giveaway on the fabulous lingerie blog A Slip of a Girl. It's a simple silhouette in a beautiful color, which is what I tend to look for.

Better pictures on the way, promise.

I do think it could use a bit of tailoring in the waist, but that was no reason not to wear it on my birthday. Plus, it gave me a chance to wear a vintage incredible faux pearl wrap bracelet I won in Joanna from Dividing Vintage Moment's giveaway. So many wins! I am such a winner.

Shabby Apple contacted me about a giveaway and I think this is the perfect time to share the love. Enter the #everydayglamour giveaway for a chance to win a $50 Shabby Apple gift card. After you like Shabby Apple on Facebook, tell me what little things you do to make yourself feel a little bit glamorous every day. For me, it's putting on blush. Not only do I brighten up my face; the process forces me to smile and that makes me feel better. There are five other ways for you to get entries with Rafflecopter. Unfortunately, this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

  3. Definitely red lipstick - no matter what you're wearing, lipstick makes you feel glamorous. My second answer would be stockings!

  5. I like to make a conscious effort to change up my hair every day. I have a growing-out pixie and I get stuck in a Same Hair rut all too often. By changing my hair accessories or even just my part, it makes it feel a little more special!

  8. Yay!

    Okay, my favorite Shabby Apple item is http://shabbyapple.com/p-1712-arripidae.aspx - I love the color and the cut!

    And to answer your question, what makes me feel a little glamorous is adding a wing tip eyeliner.

  9. I'd like to enter for your giveaway. I haven't bought anything from Shabby Apple yet but I've certainly looked:)) Thanks for the shout out on the bracelet. It looks very lovely on you:)) I also think this royal blue suits you well. Now you just need a cocktail in the other hand:)) Some days I may go without makeup but I like to put on some retro glam accessories. Who says you can't have a little bling everyday?:)

  11. I am just loving about 2/3 of the lovely things on Shabby Apple! But in the summer, I like shorts and cute tops so I'm thinking I really just need the Cherry Sno-Cone Blouse! Maybe because I also love sno-cones...

  18. Something that makes me feel a little glamorous everyday would be wearing a dress. I work in a creative office, so I am allowed to wear casual dresses.. or more dressed up, it's up to me really. And I would rather be over-dressed at any time, than under-dressed!
