My Fall "Seasonal Fashion Confusion" and a Shabby Apple Giveaway! Pick a Dress!

I don't know about you, but when the seasons change I might always have a handle on the home decor, but I always feel stuck when it comes to pulling an outfit together.  Alex confirmed that this happens every Spring and Fall usually and that I show the same symptoms every time, ha! 

According to him, signs of this seasonal fashion confusion include:
-Making a complete mess in my closet after failed attempts at an ensemble
-Talking to myself with grumblings like"I don't have anything to wear!" and/or "where did sweater/pant/shirt X go?!?"
-Spontaneous online shopping orders and spending
-Repeating, "Does this look stupid?  I feel like I look stupid!" to get reassurance that I don't look stupid, but regardless will continue to insist that I look stupid. 

Maybe I sound crazy but if anyone else is in a fall fashion rut like I am, I have the perfect thing for you today- a dress giveaway from Shabby Apple!  If you haven't heard of them, it's a site full of vintage clothes -- think dresses, jackets, pants, tops and swimsuits.  My favorites are always the dresses, so many fun & feminine looks to choose from!  I'm totally digging a few fall looks like Shetland, At Last, and the Rosalin sweater.  I think each one would be fun for making layered fall look with cute boots to top them off!
What do you think?  What dresses, skirts, or sweaters are you liking this fall?
