Short Sleeve Nutcracker Dress in Green


Shabby Apple sent me the Short Sleeve Nutcracker Dress in Green. When I received the package and took out the dress, I was delighted to see that it was exactly how it looked in the pictures online! Sometimes, when online shopping, certain companies products do not appear the same way as they do on the internet, however, this was not the case!

I ordered this dress in size 2, as I am petite. The only downside was that it was slightly larger then I had hoped. However, I was able to pin it in the back to make it fit better. I chose this dress in the green shade because I like darker cooler colors rather than warm and vibrant.  This color of the dress is a little more blue than I would have liked, however, it is still a very lovely color. I am quite short so the dress falls a little under the knee on me, though it may be shorter on some ladies. The fabric has a beautiful shine to it making the color of the dress appear both blue and green depending on how you look at it, and in what light you are looking at it in.

It can be seen as slightly plain-looking, so I would recommend adding a nice statement necklace to make your look even better. I would also say that this dress would look stunning on any sort of body type.

The dress is well-made, and the fabric is not itchy. This dress is categorized on the Shabby Apple website under the wedding category. So, if you are planning a wedding and need bridesmaid dresses, I would recommend looking into this company! This dress does not necessarily need to be used as a bridesmaid dress though. It would be perfect for any sort of party as well.  The Nutcracker Dress also comes in a bright pink color.

Keep in mind that Shabby Apple offers a wide assortment of casual dresses that would be perfect for the spring or summer.

    Beautifully written and on point. I was the photographer taking Melanie’s pictures shown here. The dress is beautiful and I love that it can be worn to any type of party occasion, not just as a bridesmaid dress. I love the color.

      Thank you! I also agree that the dress does not necessarily have to be a bridesmaid dress, and it is cute for any occasion!

    The dress is very flattering on you. I think it’s a good color choice, too.
