Shabby Apple Ingrid dress

Shabby Apple was so kind to let me give their beautiful Ingrid dress a spin.  I’m getting tired of the whole layering/tights thing, so this dress had to stay inside, at least for now.  I’m pretty sure it’s going to get a fair amount of wear as soon as the weather warms up.  At first, I questioned whether the ruffles around the collar were almost too voluminous, but, let’s be honest, I’m not exactly drama-averse. B. wanted me to tell you that the belt was his idea, which is partially true.  I put it on and he said it liked it.  Baby steps.

This is such a gorgeous look! The dress is wonderful and there is not too much drama in the ruffles. A bit of summer sun and that top of the dress will pop! πŸ˜€

Great pairing with the shoes too! πŸ™‚

The ruffles are not at all overwhelming, but still dramatic. That is a gorgeous dress, and the belt really kicks it up a notch, so give B two thumbs way up and a pat on the back.
