Robin, keep your eyes on your inbox for an email from the farm.


And the original post dated March 23 was:

Are you pining for pinafores, perpetuated by plaid, and placated by peplums?

If polka dots predicate a pleasurably palpable prognosis, you’re not alone.

May I prescribe Shabby Apple vintage clothing—a return to what dresses were always meant to be.





Shabby Apple clothing specializes in vintage clothing for those with discerning taste looking for quality and style.

We’ve partnered with Shabby Apple to give away a $50 certificate to one lucky winner. To be our winnin’ girl, just tell me what your favorite style is.

Maybe it’s lacey lace, silky silk, or wooly wool. Or, perhaps you’re more of a pattern gal, such as girly gingham. Is your color sassy seafoam? Let’s talk about retro ruffles.

I’m partial to pink pinstripe myself—so sashay on over to Shabby Apple to take a look around and then come back and tell me your answer below.  I’ll pick a name out of a plug hat, or maybe a fedora.

  1. Gail Dooley says:

    Love love love these clothes on the Shabby Apple. Makes me feel real again to see true fashion back in swing. Hope to win this nice prize. Already liked on Facebook and signed up for email.

  2. Barbara says:

    Lace and a few ruffles.

  3. Stephanie says:

    There’s a lot to love at Shabby Apple!

  4. Marie Clarke says:

    I like classy southern, sleek comfortable cotton that flows in the perfect sea breeze

  5. Addie Schille says:

    I think those clothes are beautiful. I’m a skirt person. I love the full skirts with bows, especially in the summer.

  6. Jennifer Galbraith says:

    I love the peach dress on the bottom! So happy to see these styles coming back!!

  7. theresa says:

    The dress “Overboard” screams summer to me! Summer is what I m craving right now….

  8. Sarah Stewart says:

    My favorite dress in particular is the navy blue “Bon Voyage”. I enjoy sewing quite a lot, and I’m a sucker for high quality fabric, and those little details you don’t see anymore in ready to wear clothing- a hem that’s actually turned under twice, darts, and shaping that flatters and fits a grown up female body. When it comes to colors, and patterns I’m all over the map. I love simple clothing with beautiful lines.

  9. Debbie Christin says:

    Love the apparel……especially liking the Venice Beach dress!

  10. Toni Whitney says:

    Love the Sea Breeze, being an Ocean Farm Girl.

  11. Patty Byrd says:

    Oh my… I especially love the ‘Set Sail, South Pacific, All Aboard, and the Side Saddle” collections! What wonderful styles! I will for sure share this with all my friends!

  12. Tammy Bradshaw says:

    Love Shabby Apple !! But what do I love the best ? Oh the lace – no the cotten or maybe the chiffon. Can’t decided !!

  13. Michele H says:

    I love the swimwear and the clean classic lines of the dresses. Thank you for sharing this website/store!

  14. Jennifer Hansen says:

    Currently loving nautical/sailor type dresses that have a retro feel.

  15. Krystle says:

    I checked out their dresses and they are all beautiful! My absolute faves were the Bon Voyage or Overboard. I do like lace dresses for dressing up for a nice summer dinner date though!

  16. Minh Laidacker says:

    Ee! These clothes are so cute! I love cotton dresses and skirts with ding-dong bell swinging motion and trim waists. (Or at least those that can give the illusion of a trim waist! *wink*)

  17. drMolly says:

    An interesting site! Lovely dresses – I especially like the Zoology Collection. However, somewhat beyond my means I have to admit – I guess I’ll just have to stick to DIY.

  18. missMolly M. says:

    I love the Ferris Wheel collection! I really like the root beer float dress and the high waist skirts, especially the ones with polka-dots!

  19. Grace says:

    I love lace and small ruffles! Glad to see these clothes available again!

  20. SAcha A. says:

    I am a HUGE fan of Shabby Apple!! It is too hard to choose just one favorite. I love the green Animalia dress or the Headliner dress or Azure Coast or Neap Tide or Walk the Plank or I’m Late! I’m Late!. So many beautiful styles!!!

  21. Cheryl Fiske says:

    I love the free-spirit, yet ultra feminine look of Shabby Apple clothing. The look is comfortable and pleasing.

  22. Krista R. says:

    So many to choose from. It’s hard to pick. I really like the “Vineyard Sound” dress, but they’re all quite fun and pretty. 🙂

  23. Aimee says:

    I adore polka dot dresses with full skirts (made for twirling)!!

  24. Grace Mitton says:

    I really love the Callooh! Callay! dress. It’s so adorable! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  25. i’m feeling the polka dots! super cute!

  26. Brandy Ward says:

    I have a pic of my Grandmother in a black & white polka dot dress that has always been my favorite. I’ve thought many times about trying to “re create” it in my size:) The tan & white polka dot one Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman wasn’t bad either:)

  27. julie says:

    My favorite style is eclectic sexy

  28. Julia says:

    The designs are all so beautiful that I can’t decide! I especially love the dresses!

  29. cheryl says:

    I loved the scalloped hem line and pink is my favorite color.

  30. jaylyn morehouse says:

    I’m really liking the lacey Mulholland dress on their website! I’d be super thrilled if my name is picked out of the fedora! wooooohooo!

  31. Tamara Bainter says:

    Anything…ANYthing!…polkadot. And on a side note I am so happy that dresses are so popular again!

  32. Jennifer G. says:

    Love how they parlay older vintage styles into today’s high fashion!

  33. Judy Savoy says:

    I have been wandering all over this great website for an hour. I have to say, the SHABBY clothing here is APPLE-ing. I love the farris wheel looks, but was still wandering though when the website went offline 🙁

  34. Chana says:

    I especially love the calliope skirt! And I am sold on polka dots and anything magenta.

  35. Raelene says:

    OMG! How’s a girl to decide! Thank you MaryJane for sharing the site! I’ve never heard of them, and bookmarking it now. The accessories, crafts, and clothes…oh my! Anything long and casual…

  36. Sharon Bryce says:

    I am really likin’ the Neap Tide dress. The color remings me of Atlantic Beach sea foam when I was a carefree kid of the 60’s … Chewing on my saltwater taffy, taking a ride on The Diving Bell, smelling the fresh roasted peanuts from the nut shop that had a huge Mr. Peanut statue outside their door… Yep, I could feel like I turned the clock back wearing that sweet dress:)

  37. Britt Kidder says:

    I’m liking the Zoology collection for its color palette.

  38. Julie says:

    I like the francine skirt thansk

  39. Thayes Hower says:

    Hands down, the shirtwaist dresses. I love them in all kinds of fabrics, but I think Polka Dots are lots of fun. And….you must have a hat! The wider the brim the better.

  40. domestic diva says:

    I like the aphrodite dress. Feminine, simple, and perfect for my growing belly.

  41. Diane says:

    I adore this site– a friend told me about it a while back. Oh gosh is it ever hard to pick just ONE, but if I must, it’s “Cider”…all their stuff is so elegant and just… classy!
    The funny thing for me is this has always been my “style” and I spent so many painful years being teased for it that I almost feel like I’m getting the last laugh here 🙂

  42. Rachael says:

    Love the Caliope skirt, Highclere Castle line, Aloha, Freshwater Pearl, and on and on! Such gorgeous and modest dresses! Thanks for the AWESOME giveaway.

  43. Joy Luciano says:

    I have to go with the Gondola Dress in preparation for my Italian honeymoon! It’s so effortlessly elegant and simple all at the same time. Wish I had it for our trip!

  44. I love the whole Highclere Castle line but if I have to choose one thing, I love the High Tea skirt. White with black polka dots perfection! Polka dots I love. : D

  45. Elena Vo says:

    The Bon Voyage dress captured my heart 🙂 It’s flirty yet modest, comfortable yet stylish. It would look so well with my yellow kitten heels and red lipstick.

  46. Ashley Tracy says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE chic Southern style. Anything with pearls and lace make me feel feminine and strong. Shabby Apple is just glorious with their high quality and retro style. Please enter my name to win!!

  47. Dolly Sarrio says:

    I thought I liked the Golden Afternoon but after visiting the website I like Tow The Line. They are actually all very pretty. Please put my name in the entry. I love pretty dresses.Thanks MaryJane and Shabby Apple.

  48. Whimsy and elegance inspires me. Clothing, such as the Shabby Apple, that is chic and feminine makes me feel like I’m in Paris collecting treasures from old vintage shops- even though I’m only invisioning it from my kitchen sink.

  49. katherine lewis says:

    love the ms. porter but there were many many wonderful dresses to pick from; i loved how a lot of them had sleeves; you just can’t find that in most stores nowadays and have to wear cardigans if you don’t want to show your arms.
