Handmade Christmas #3


Introducing the loveliest place for a dress, and I mean it. These ladies partnered up to create Shabby Apple, a spot for women to shop and find her a dress that will really fit her curves and show off her beauty. CK Woolley and Emily McCormick know what it takes to make women feel their best. When my beautiful dress came in the mail, I tried it on for Mr. Nielson who practically made me wear it whilst making dinner.

Take a peek around and find a dress for your holiday party!
