Notice Something Different About Our Digs? Shappy Apple, BAAAABEEE!

I am thrilled, delighted, tickled pink and purple (mostly purple as I am chocolate), pleased as punch (spiked with Grey Goose) to announce that Shabby Apple is an OFFICIAL advertiser for Beyond Black & White! Right from the start, me and Athelia Woolery, my fashion crush and creator of the site, have been a match made in heaven.

Before I found her, I’d essentially given up buying dresses–a feminine essential. For the first time in my adult life, I found classic, well-made dresses that look good on my medium frame and short-legged body. Her ingenious “Fit to Flatter” program helped me select outfits that did not make me look like I was wearing a potato sack, and for that, I will be eternally grateful.

Tip: If you aren’t a super model, dresses to compliment your figure can be tricky. If you have a large bust, you need a piece that while give ample room for your bosom-a-plenty without making you look like you’re wearing a moo-moo. If you have an apple or pear shape, you should pick cuts that de-emphasize those problem areas while accentuating others. It’s hard as heck to do that without a fitting room, unless you take advantage of programs like “Fit of Flatter,” which I did with excellent results.

Athelia has also supported US by donating dresses for promotions and give-aways and her generosity and support for the success of BB&W has been amazing. (Is my crush showing again?)

The the new line, “Academia” is one of my favorite this far. If you love sixties chic with a contemporary twist, the line does not disappoint. I mean, check out this skirt!

And think of how you’d knock ’em dead in this number:

Here’s some of the dresses and shoes I haven’t been able to resist, to my husband’s chagrin…

So there you have it. Real life fashion worship of Shabby Apple by Yours Truly.

The holidays are coming up and I just simply HAVE to get that red dress up yonder and manufacture an event I must attend in order to justify buying it.

Any ideas?
