FREE DRESS! Get your free dress here!

Daddy Likey and the lovely ladies at Shabby Apple have teamed up to give away a fabulous dress from their fabulous collection to one of my fabulous readers!

There's a lot of fabulousness going on.

This flattering frock (retail price: $86) could be yours, absolutely free! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I'll choose a random winner a week from today.

Tell your friends to get in on the free dress fun too! Or don't, if you want to improve your odds. Good luck!

*
Please leave your first name and last initial if you're not commenting with a blogger account. I don't want name confusion to leave our lucky winner dress-less!*

Note to international readers:
Shabby Apple doesn't ship outside the US, but international readers are welcome to enter the giveaway--if you win, we'll just have the dress shipped to me and I'll send it along to you!

UPDATE:
Out of more than 300 glorious comments, the winner of the fabulous Shabby Apple dress is....D'Rae! Congrats to the lucky lady, and thanks to everyone who entered. I especially loved hearing from all the lurkers, and I hope you'll come out of the darkness again soon! (But just to be sure, I'll do more giveaways.)

Verification word: 'waridens' (n.), fierce fashion warriors whose signature move is a sharpened stilleto to the eye.

Miss Addict said...

Oh thats is a gorgeous dress. I saw it and my brain started plotting what I will wear with it if I win! Must get my hands on a pair of bright blue tights!

... does this offer include those of us not in the USA? *crosses fingers*

Miss Kumquat said...

I love your blog, but I've never commented. I guess giving away a dress that is so pretty and spring-y is a good way to make me come out of the woodwork! :-)

Shannon (A beautiful Dream) said...

oooh, stripes, collar and wrap around front - totally my kind of dress!

daddylikeyblog said...

Miss Addict--
Shabby Apple only ships to the US, but if you (or any other international reader) wins, you can have your dress shipped to me and I'll ship it to you!

Miss Kumquat--
Glad to see you out in the sunlight! :)

It's nom nom nom nautical. It would go perfectly with a straw boater.

savannah said...

I was checking out the dress on the gorgeously tall model...wondering exactly where the dress hem would fall on short ol' me...debating if I should leave a comment...thinking the coat rack even looks taller than me.

And then I was like what the hell am I worrying about the proportions for...IT'S FREE!

Dee said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog! That dress makes me want to buy a yacht or go on a picnic or something. Le Sigh.

young r said...

Tara said...

Ooh gorgeous dress! I hope this is open outside the US? (Does accidental rhyming increase chances?)

I was going to make my friend Amy go on that show "How Do I Look?" because her wardrobe is...reality-show worthy. This dress, however, would be gorgeous on her, and I know she would wear it, and it would spare both of us public-day-time-tv humiliation.

For the love of Amy...
