School Shopping - Shabby Apple Giveaway

My husband is headed back to work today.  He's a professor and enjoys the boons of an academic schedule.  So this is his first day of school! Every year, my mom would take me school shopping the week or so before school started.  I loved it!  I always felt like it was my chance to reinvent a little bit of myself.  Even as a kid I knew the transformative power of a new dress or a new pair of shoes.  




I'm so excited to announce that Shabby Apple is giving one La Maison Boheme reader a 

$75 gift card!


Shabby Apple is also giving ALL La Maison Boheme readers a 10% discount when you purchase something from their online shop! Use the code "lamaison10off" when you check out.  Now you can do a little school shopping too!  Here are some of my favorite things from Shabby Apple this season:







I also really like the Shabby Apple fitness line.  



GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED




1. To win the $75 gift card please "Like" Shabby Apple on Facebook.

2.  Then, visit the Shabby Apple website. Come back and tell me what you'd put your $75 towards.

Had to get in on this! I'm really loving are those preppy lady shoes! the only thing is--I don't have much to wear with them, so I'd have to find a way to narrow down the dress choices! ;)

Liked your Facebook page, Shabby Apple's page, and posted! I love how their dresses are so classy, but also modern. My wedding rehearsal dress was from them :) If I won the gift card, I think I'd have to go with either the SPQR dress, the Andes skirt, or the After Class dress!

Ohhh, I adore their dresses and skirts. I rarely have a true opportunity to wear them but on occasion, I over-dress for the grocery store and silly chores.

I really like the Cecily skirt. What gorgeous colors! And oh my... how can you pick just one shoe? They are all fabulous!
