Orlando: The Collection

If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know that I love Shabby Apple dresses. One of the things that I like best about this boutique (besides their super flattering clothes) is that the ladies who run the place are way into themes.

After experimenting with a variety of different types of themes ranging from the delicious (boysenberry), to faux French (oh la la), to pre-World War (1943), the designers at Shabby Apple seemed to have settled into a comfortable groove. If you haven't noticed, most of the boutique's recent dress collections are named after beautiful and inspiring places: the Berkshires, Central Park, Baja, Manhattan, Queensland, and, most recently, Yosemite.

There are many deserving candidates, but may I suggest the most worthy city for a future photo shoot?

Imagine this: a gorgeous model wearing equally an gorgeous dress standing on top of the Epcot Center.

And this: a gorgeous model wearing an equally gorgeous dress feeding Shamu a fish from a bucket.

And this: a gorgeous model wearing an equally gorgeous dress hanging out in the parking lot of the Titanic Museum.

I get goosebumps thinking about all the possibilities.

Why am I not a stylist? Or art director?

I ask myself these questions almost every day.

Until the arrival of the dress collection called "Orlando," we'll all have to make due with what's available.

Behold! Yosemite:





I've spent most of the day wishing I had bangs to work into mini-buns. Just so you know.

Don't really have a comment, just wanted to be first at someting...teeheehee. However, I do love your blog, visit it often and have yet to be disappointed.

I live only 2 hours from Yosemite. They should have used me as a model! Ugh. Why is it people only pick the girls with the luscious locks and shapely gams?

I love, love, LOVE Shabby Apple dresses!

And seriously, they could totally make a dress line designed around Orlando. There could be a Spider-man inspired dress for while they're at Universal Studios, and something with sequins on it to represent the tacky tourist district. Awesome.

I think they wasted the two bun hair that would have been more appropriately placed in front of Disney since it looks Mickey Mouse inspired.

I want to go there! I love their dresses too. You'd look great with mini-buns.

You don't need bangs to do hair rolls. Actually long hair is better.

Doesn't it just tick you off that the model STILL looks fabulous - even with mini buns?

UtahMillers said...

Gorgeous dresses! And modest too! More designers should take a lesson from Shabby Apple! Modest is hottest!

Um, I could probably fit into those dresses if I had mini-buns. As it stands, my buns have never been called mini.

I am anticipating posts about little kids cutting their own hair....
It makes me cringe to think of it.

Mini-buns are actually a 40s hairdo called "victory rolls"...and they are easier to make with long hair.
Love your meanest mom attitude!!! I'm working on mine!
