The Winning Dress

Today’s post is a special one because it features the winner of the Shabby Apple giveaway I held in January.

As luck would have it, I pulled the name reeltravel out of my hat. Laura, the writer behind the blog Reel Travel, happens to live in Seattle. I knew I wanted the winner to appear in her dress on this blog, but I had no idea I’d be able to pop by and be the photographer!

Dining Car dress

Laura picked the Dining Car Dress, a teal green number that complements her skin and hair so well. It’s a gorgeous shade and looks fantastic on her. The length is great–and so is the way she paired it with her Tsubo shoes.

The dress is a lightweight chiffon and has a retro vibe without feeling costume-y. It’s a piece that can dressed up for dinner but is still work-appropriate.

Congrats again Laura, and thanks for the impromptu photo shoot on your rooftop deck!

    Beautiful dress, photos, and model! 🙂

  2. The colour of the dress is beautiful and looks good with blonde hair! Laura picked a great style, very flattering and versatile!

    I love the rooftop photo shoot, the angle looking down at the street and the Space Needle in the distance makes for an interesting backdrop for a fashionable lady!

    • It’s a great space to shoot, isn’t it? In summer, with all the flowers blooming it would be even better! I’m glad Laura picked that dress. It does look great with her blonde hair!

    Those are lovely photos! That dress looks smashing on Laura, what a great choice for such a lucky win!!

  4. Super cute and I love how you featured the winner on your blog! That is such a great idea. But you’re sweet like that. xo

  5. How cool! I have adored each and every Seattle area style blogger I’ve met (including you, My Dear!), so how cool you had such a great excuse to meet another. The dress is darling, as is Laura. Hopping over to check out her blog! ~Sarah

    • You’re so sweet. I totally agree with you. It’s been so fun meeting other bloggers (which reminds me, we need to get together again!). Laura is a film and travel blogger and I think you’ll like hey posts and pix.

  6. She did choose the perfect dress! It suits her beautifully. Everything about this post is just awesome – amazing photos and all! (And the shoes. I’m obsessing over them right now, actually.)

    • Thanks! I had fun taking pictures. I usually take my own and a tripod will only get you so far. It was nice being the photographer for a change. And I do agree. She definitely found a great dress. The cut, the color. Loving it too!
