#ShowYourShabby W/ Shabby Apple










 {Photos by Angel Rodriguez}

Dress: c/o Shabby Apple, Clutch: Forever 21 (old), Heels: Christian Louboutin

Happy Thursday! Today's post is featuring this royal blue cocktail dress from Shabby Apple. If you aren't familiar with Shabby Apple they are an online brand with pieces that range from apparel, swimwear, and accessories. The beauty in their pieces are the retro feel. Their style is a mixture of dramatic, vintage, femininity. Which happen to be three of my favorite things. Their clothing also range from pieces that can be worn to weddings (whether you're a guest or bridesmaid), a picnic, brunch, special occasion, or work. They really are a one stop shop.

The dress I'm wearing is called the "short sleeved nutcracker". It is stretch taffeta with a sheen. It has a excellent fit and comes in a variety of colors. I especially love the vintage look and timeless shape. Since this dress does have a sheen to it I would recommend it for a night out. Oh! Did I mention that it's on sale for less that $100? ;)

So if you are in search for a unique dress or skirt I would definitely recommend Shabby Apple. Their pieces are fun and affordable. I've linked this outfit below as well as some of my other favorite pieces.

Hello September

It's the first day of September so you know what that means...Fall is almost here! I thought I would be sad to see Summer go but with hats and cozy sweaters like this, it makes the transition a bit more bearable. ;)

Necklace: c/o Hanuel, Crop Top: H&M (similar here)

Happy Monday! I cant believe August is over and sooner rather than later we will be saying good bye to our swim suits and hello to pumpkin spice everything.

Today I give you another recap of some of my favorite Insta snaps as well as extra info I didn't share here on The Bobbed Brunette.

This month my Q&A for one of my favorite places in DC, The Yards, went live on their People Profile. Some of the things we talk about are what to do when you have nothing to wear and 3 tips for budget conscience shopping. You can read the Q&A here!

You can also get my favorite s'mores dip recipe here.

Life in Astana: Food Diary Pt. 2

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing another photo diary from Kazakhstan. I'm such a huge foodie and we continue to discover great restaurants here in Astana. It has definitely made the transition easier. I hope you all enjoy these photos. Happy Tuesday!









This Mediterranean restaurant has become a quick favorite of ours. It offers a great selection of wines (as you can see), cheese, French and Italian dishes. 


Seafood Risotto
Bow Tie Pasta with Salmon and Caviar 

Georgian Food and Wine

I think Georgian food has become one of my FAVORITES! It is so flavorful. Not pictured is the yummy salad and lamb kabobs.
