Scribbles From Emily is sponsored by Shabby Apple. Haven’t heard of ’em? Well, let me fill you in.
Once upon a time, two women were fed up with dresses that didn’t have enough coverage. They wanted dresses that were modest and modern, cute and comfortable, that didn’t need a sweater, tank, or long slip. They wanted dresses to flatter every body type, for every occasion. So, Shabby Apple was born.
One of the reasons I especially love Shabby Apple is that they are committed to fighting poverty worldwide. 5% of their net profits go to charitable work with women in developing countries through Unitus, a non-profit organization that helps women receive micro loans for starting their own businesses. Customers are also encouraged to donate $5 to Unitus with each dress purchase. Shabby Apple features several stories from the women whose lives have been changed on their charity page.
Shabby Apple’s site allows you to shop by occasion and body type as well as their collections. And I love their style tools for analyzing your personal style! You can also submit your question and get style advice!
