Shabby Apple maternity dress giveaway

Recently I was contacted by Shabby Apple, a (new to me) online clothing store, with the offer to choose any item from their catalogue and host a giveaway on my blog. After I browsed through their website, I kind of wished it was some other blog hosting the giveaway, so that I could enter myself. ;o)

Shabby Apple offers many lovely, feminine outfits. I must say pretty much all of them are something I would only wear paired with a modest top and/or a long skirt underneath. However, this can be said about most stores where I shop these days – yes, even those aimed at religious Jews. I almost always end up wearing layers so as not to compromise standards of modesty.

After I browsed the maternity wear category, I decided to dedicate this giveaway to all fellow mamas-to-be that read this blog, and chose this lovely maternity dress as my giveaway item.

It's a very pretty full-length dress I personally would love to have for the maternity/postpartum period.

I will keep the giveaway open for a week, after which I will randomly choose a winner. To enter, simply leave a comment – and of course, those of you who have a blog or a Facebook/twitter account are welcome to spread the word!
