Glossy mags love to showcase flab-free fourteen year old models cavorting in thigh-high miniskirts and short-shorts, promising the look will give you "mile long legs." Maybe. But at what cost...your dignity? Given that within the US alone (with the rest of the world quickly following suit), the average American woman weighs about 145 - 160 pounds and wears a Size 14 dress, maybe the motto should be less about skin and more about comfort. Which is what the fashionistas behind Shabby Apple felt when they got fed up at never being able to find stylish dresses and skirts that fit, flattered, and covered enough so that no additional layers, cardis, slips, or camis were needed to be rated PG. Their adorable frocks remind us of those wonderful "day" dresses in 40s & 50s movies that were simultaneously feminine, practical, stylish, and yet completely appropriate anywhere - be it strolling through Central Park, shopping on the Avenue Montaigne, or perusing the piazzas in Roma. And with sizes for petites all the way through to plus - not to mention all kinds of fun fabrics, colors, and lengths - and at really great prices - covering up has never been so much fun.
