One of the things I like most about cooking is that I get to wear an apron. I know it sounds weird, but I really love wearing aprons, and I have several of them.
My favorite style of aprons are the retro, or vintage style aprons…you know the ones with the ruffles that Lucille Ball and June Cleaver always wore when making dinner? Those are my favorites. And there are lots of good places out there to find them!
Flirty Aprons sells over 50 styles of aprons. All of their aprons are durable, and either single or double-layered. They were designed with real women, so the long, thick waist ties and a unique pattern allow women to adjust the tie length. The waist ties are designed to fit any body type, measuring approximately 54″ apiece, and can usually be tied in either the front or the back. Big or small, these aprons will fit!
The style pictured above is Flirty Apron’s Little Black Dress, and it’s the next apron I plan on buying! I think it would be perfect to wear if you were entertaining guests!
Flirty Apron also sells men and children’s aprons, as well as dishwashing/cleaning gloves.
ASD Living offersÂ fantastic retroÂ aprons that make me swoon! There is a huge selection of patterns and designs to suit every taste. There’s even a Mother/Daughter collection that makes me want to buy every style available.
ASD Living offers not only women’s aprons, but children’s and the Butcher Style Collection for men. They also offer one-of-a-kind designed potholders.
And one other thing…they have a selection of Dr. Seuss-themed aprons! I want the one for Christmas for sure!
Lynne’s Whim also sells vintage aprons that I could spend a fortune collecting. Each apron is made by hand…yes! They are actually hand made! You can purchase women’s aprons and various potholders. They even have a Halloween and Christmas line, and they sell matching witches hats for Halloween!
Whim (Via Zulily) Now I haven’t been able to find this company anywhere except when they are featured on Zulily.com, though I wish I could because I love this description:
“When we were kids, we imagined a future where we’d float around a kitchen in heels, in full makeup, hair perfectly pinned, prepping a meal and cake from scratch. Then we actually grew up and the reality of homemaking wasn’t quite so ideal. Get a little of the magic back. Whim cutes up your kitchen, even if you’re keeping your feet on the ground (and in fuzzy slippers instead of heels). ”
Are you a fan of wearing aprons? What is your favorite apron style?
