Is It Chic or Just Plain Cheap?

This week I was browsing through the women’s dresses on the Shabby Apple website, when I discovered the below dress.

Called “Five to Nine”, it can be used for work and after. Its extremely versatile and can be customized based on the shoes and accesories worn.

    Definitely chic but most of us will need some serious shape wear to pull this off — even the Skinny Minnies (of which I am not one). Love the simple cut and the flare around the hips. I’d probably skip the lace tights though I know they are on trend right now. Love the platform shoe. Definitely a great day to evening look.

    Trendy and versatile – definitely chic!

    I think it’s Chic, but I’d have to loose weight to wear it.

    Chic! ANYTHING Shabby Apple is chic!!! ANYTHING!!

    Though, I’m not a fan of those lace tights. They might be in but you will never see me wearing them!

    hmm, it depends. something like that would not work for me, the fabric looks thin. i cant explain it but i cant get away with certain dresses. i look like i’m wearing ‘trapos’ yet my friend can put the same thing on and look sexy. haha.

    OMG, I say CHIC. It looks thin, but that’s why our mamis taught us to wear slips!!! No sea tan fresca!!! LOL

    Not cheap by far…I agree w/ the above comments re: the dress. But as for me, it doesn’t quite go w/ my sweats – not sure how’d I’d wear it :)
