It’s no secret that I love old TV shows. That might be because I’d be perfectly happy living in the “nearly-perfect” world portrayed in these shows. A Milk Man, grocery delivery, unlocked doors, and knowing the name of everyone on your block; doesn’t it sound absolutely wonderful? Then again, I would miss blogging… and Twitter.
Long gone are the days of Lucy Ricardo, Donna Reed and June Clever. Life is busy, hectic, and we sometimes have to fight to keep everything straight. That doesn’t mean we can’t channel our inner 50’s housewife every now and then. One thing all of my favorite 50’s housewives had in common, besides a spotless house and endless amounts of energy, is they liked their aprons. To me, an apron is one of those things you wouldn’t think you need until you actually use one. A friend gave me a Martha Stewart apron about a year ago as a gag gift (I love all things Martha). I decided to use it one day when I was rushing around the kitchen (in our old apartment) trying to get dinner ready before my in-laws came over. Come to find out, they’re tremendously functional and I was hooked. Especially when you are making mashed potatoes and they kind of… explode. Then when the in-laws show up, just throw the apron in the washer and you’re ready without the mess.
So, yeah, they’re functional. But it can also act as a fashion statement, and that’s where we’re headed today. Aprons are coming back in a stylish way and I’m here to share a few of my favorites that Lucy, Donna, and June would adore…
So the question is ladies, are you an apron girl? Have you always been or is it a new thing for you? We’d love to hear your apron stories. Happy Friday everyone!
