Skirt Celebration and Shabby Apple Giveaway!

Today, we are celebrating skirts! Skirts have just returned to my life in the last year and are a statement of confidence for me personally! Confidence that I am not embarrassed by my legs or any part of my body!

I also love separates... like skirts... because they stretch your wardrobe….you can do so much with them!! I invited Gigi to my skirt party and to help me announce a special giveaway for over50feeling40 readers from Shabby Apple, an online boutique for women’s dresses! You can win the Izzie Skirt….an adorable, spring-like pencil style! With this skirt, I would take out my favorite white T shirt, denim jacket, and a fun pair of red flats!


All you have to do, is tell me that you want to be entered; that you LIKED Shabby Apple on Face Book ; and which Shabby Apple skirt is your favorite from their website. You must visit their Facebook and website to be eligible. You can tell me all of this in one comment. I will randomly select a winner and announce the name on January 31.   Have a great weekend, everyone!
