Shabby Apple Clothing: Beautiful & Uncomplicated Dressing

Sometimes we think we have an old soul, that is the only explanation for our obsession with vintage, and things that look vintage. One fashion brand we immediately fell in love with was Shabby Apple, a wonderful, women-owned/operated fashion label that offers vintage-inspired clothing, and partners with organizations around the world that helps women empower themselves. Shabby Apple brings back the elegance of yesteryear to women’s fashion with their stunning offering of looks inspired by vintage clothing. With a collection that includes everything you’d need like cocktail dresses, maxi dresses, formal and because we are in the season, summer dresses. We fell in love with several of their dresses, particularly their Central Park Dress.

This glorious cotton/spandex, maxi gingham wrap dress boasts a vintage-inspired silhouette with structured collar, 3/4 length buttoned sleeves, and an over-sized waist tie. You can’t help but feel like a lady in the Central Park Dress, but then we suspect, we’d feel that way about of of Shabby Apple’s dresses. Available in the above yellow, green, and blue (which has already sold out), you will love everything this vintage style. Of course there’s much more to drool over, from their short, and midi dresses, and skirts to their tops, jackets, swimwear, and accessories, you, like us, will find yourself bookmarking Shabby Apple’s e-commerce site to keep on shopping for all your dress needs.

You’ll love the Prince Dress for its fit and flare silhouette, voluminous skirt, and elbow length sleeves with bow tie closure; the knee length, fit and flare silhouette, and organza fabric of the Debutante Dress; the tea length, elegance, and sweetness of the Park Ave Skirt; and the floor length with tulle underskirt, and the eye-catching aesthetic of the Southern Belle Maxi Skirt. You’ll love everything they have to offer. Get to know Shabby Apple, and its Designer, Athelia “CK” LeSueur (pictured below) asap.

About Miguelina

Dominican born, Miguelina Gambaccini, the founder and designer of the highly coveted lifestyle brand, Miguelina, is best known for her ability to create designs for the most discriminating clientele. Equal parts sophisticated yet laid back, Ms. Gambaccini’s delicately detailed and ultra-feminine designs take inspiration from her jet set travels to international locales.
It was a creative experiment of dying cheese cloth that launched her career. For Fifeen years the Miguelina brand has been synonymous with luxury resort and beachwear. From colorful flowing dresses to silk caftans, effortlessly chic describes the women who adore Miguelina.

In 1998, while packing for her three-week honeymoon in Thailand, Miguelina Gambaccini realized she was packing more than she deemed practical. The trip called for attire for many different occasions, ranging from formal dinners to day-trips around town, which inspired her to create her second line, Honeymoon, a collection of gauzy coverups, lacy caftans, and bikinis with colorful details that could be washed by hand.

With a collection that can take you from Ibiza into New England, all of which can effortlessly stuff into your weekender for a complete travel-ready wardrobe. With styles that transition from day to night, city to beach and country club, her clothing is available at the finest department store such as Bergdorf Goodman and Intermix, as well as luxury hotel boutiques across the globe.
