candy cane cutie: a present for you *CLOSED!*

want a dress?  

shabby apple, online candy store of women's dresses, asked me to pick a wee treat from their cruise-slash-holiday-getaway line to giveaway to YOU!  (that is, you living in north america EDIT: you living in the US of A.  sorry canada and world.  hopefully shabby apple will rule the international waters soon.)  i'm so not into cruises.  something abut falling into water and not being able to breathe.  but i do like me some holidays.  so i chose the bacciami dress because it looks like a candy cane.

mmmmm candy canes.

i'd wear this with green suede pumps and call it a christmas party.

to enter, comment on this post, and holler at me that you've done these things:

1) "like" shabby apple on their facebook fan page
2)  for a second chance, follow me, or let me know how you follow me if you already do. 

you must complete numero uno to enter!  following me is optional, but gets you a second entry.  and it makes me feel popular.

seeing as how i still owe five pay it forwards and one tutorial, i'm psyched to host a giveaway where it's on someone else to cough it up.  really, i do love to give things.  i just have trouble with the minutia of it.  i'm fairly certain shabby apple will be more timely than me.  giveaway will close november 28, which coincides nicely with debi's sew grateful challenge (more on that, and how it will save my slacking ass later...)

ho ho ho!

  2. I also like SA on Facebook. I have only been able to afford to be inspired by their looks, although I have often wished to own one of their faboo dresses.
