Are you ever watching something, like a Broadway Show or ballet, and it's almost (almost!) un-enjoyable because you just wish you could be up there dancing or singing with that kind of skill yourself? That's how I feel about the Winter Olympics.
Watching these women dominate in their respective fields is inspiring. I'm not calling it jealousy, but it’s a healthy appreciation for women with amazing abilities. Women are breaking down barriers across the board: competing in athletics, starting companies, potty-training two year olds, becoming best-selling authors and running for office. Go, us!
So in honor of the Winter Olympics and history of women’s triumph, here are some fun facts about women and the Olympic games:
Women first competed at the Paris Olympic Games in 1900. They could participate in three events: tennis, golf and yachting. They wore dresses that were down to their ankles with long sleeves and high heels. Sounds fun, right?

Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
When I hear her name, my visceral reaction is of tailored Dior, luncheons on Martha’s Vineyard and royalty. It’s true, Diana and Jackie would have been the best of friends had they been born within one or the other’s decade.
Her style is so iconic that she gets compared to as if she were a brand herself. Shabby Apple’s new Winter Wonderland collection carries a Jackie O thread throughout each piece, with its muted pinks, deep blues and clean lines. The Hustle and Bustle dress is one Mrs. Kennedy surely would have had tucked neatly into her closet, paired perfectly with a matching pink pillbox hat.
But it wasn’t just the clothes that made her the immortal heroine we all remember her by. Jackie had this air about her that permeated grace, poise and surely smelled of Chanel No. 5. But I wondered how Jackie could emulate such beauty amidst apparent chaos.Read the full post >
Shabby Apple is a proud supporter of women's causes, and we recently discovered a wonderful initiative that makes an important difference in the lives of women who are receiving treatment for breast cancer that we wanted to share with you!
Girls Love Mail provides encouragement and love to women undergoing breast cancer treatments by distributing hand-written letters to them. These letters are written by women like you from all over the world. Their website explains that you don't have to be going through breast cancer treatment yourself to write these letters - simply providing happiness, light and hope through a letter that encourages these strong women to keep fighting is all they ask for.Read the full post >
I have a new friend. This person runs Ultra Marathons, has a bit of a potty mouth, recently started a business and wears muscle-tees and biker jackets.
Oh, and she’s a woman.
Having built her career around methods of women empowerment, it felt like Rebecca and Shabby Apple were a match from the start. Working as a midwife for the past 8 years she has been a beacon of encouragement and strength for many women, in particular - for mothers. She describes herself as a tomboy, but I'd characterize her more as a feminine feminist, both in style and swagger (and without the hairy armpits).
Case in point - Rebecca's favorite Shabby Apple outfit pairs the Blossom Skirt with a white muscle tee, some ankle boots, and a leather biker jacket - with a splash of red lipstick.
“I have a classic, modern, edge and a bit of rustic in my style, I think it's the mountains in me. Adding some sweetness with the Blossom Skirt makes me believe it is the ONE thing that will pull me out of tomboy mode. Just feels like a really fun outfit to rock in the world.”

The way we met was so serendipitous, that it couldn’t have been just chance. I recently read one of her blog posts about vulnerability and was struck by her matter-of-fact reasoning and depth. When Rebecca and I finally met it was like a flurry of ‘Me too’s and ‘I know what you mean’s. Turns out, we know some of the same people, lived in and share a kinship for the same city in Montana, and basically just missed each other at a birthing center down the street.
Two weeks ago, I landed at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, Turkey. I arrived carrying a small suitcase and not too much in the way of plans. I travel a lot. It comes with the territory being a travel writer. And, occasionally, I just book trips without doing much in advance. Sometimes, it's fun to just walk into a city and see what it holds without studying it via a Fodor's guide first. That was Turkey for me. I planned to spend four days in Istanbul, wandering the streets with my friend Deb ... seeing what was there. I wanted to meet locals, chat, eat, drink and shop. Now home from this little getaway, I can safely say two things. One, Turkey is one of the most colorful places on the planet. Two, I would go back in a heartbeat.
What surprised me the most those first moments in Istanbul were not the protests (yes, I saw some). It was not the 14 million people living in a single city (this town is immense), and it was not being woken up at 5 a.m. by the loudspeaker calls to prayer at the mosques - which are plentiful enough to accommodate those aforementioned 14 million. What surprised me the most about Turkey was the sheer color of the place.
Tiny bungalow houses are decorated with hanging laundry, dripping Bouganville flowers and stray cats. The striking blue water of the sea is dotted with tiny, brightly painted fishing boats and the sunsets here will quickly make a romantic out of anyone. From Turkish Delight - their favorite afternoon dessert indulgence - to endless rows of headscarves for purchase, there are small, personal moments of color as well. I spent hours shopping for glass lanterns, fine leather goods and incredible textiles in Istanbul's chaotic bazaars and the experience did more than leave my luggage a bit heavier on the way home. My mind began considering how pops of color can change not just your outfit but also your mood. There's something classic-yet-exciting about a bright, busy scarf with a black leather jacket. I adore a colorful pair of heels with a simple skirt and top because it pulls everyone's gaze down rather than up. This fall, I plan to take a cue from the Turkish women and wrap my hair or neck in something exotic. I plan to experiment with pops of color in unexpected ways. Oh... and I plan to go to the gym. Turkish delight is gorgeous on a platter, but it's hard on the hips. Below, I've included a few of my favorite brightly colored items that can be purchased on www.shabbyapple.com. Happy Fall, Y'all!
