I absolutely love cooking. Since I make almost everything from scratch, I do have to watch for splatters, flour "explosions", and other potential mishaps that can leave my clothing in less than perfect shape. No, I am not an overly messy chef, but when there are toddlers running amock, a clumsy preteen that tends to bump into me, and a pesky little dog that seems to always be underfoot, accidents can (and often do) happen!
I had never really considered wearing aprons before. After all, the vast majority of them are clunky and shapeless looking, and are anything but cute. I don't know about you, but when I am in the kitchen I don't want to feel like a boxy-looking short order cook that you'd see in a school cafeteria somewhere. So these garments, while convenient, have never been my "thing."
That's until I discovered Flirty Aprons! This awesome company offers a wide variety of super-feminine, fashionable aprons that are flattering for every figure. They even make them for men and kids, too! The thing I like most about these must-have kitchen apparel is the fact that the company spares absolutely no detail, offering designs that feature great color combinations, adorable prints, and even girly frills, such as ruffles and extra-long ties, ideal for making that perfect bow! They are very reminiscent of old-school Hollywood, if you ask me, and are anything but shapeless!
I chose the Scarlet Blossom design for my review, although it was definitely a difficult decision. All of their designs are so amazingly cute! I picked this one because it features my all-time favorite color combination of black, white and red. When it arrived, I was immediately impressed by the quality of the garment, from the expertly done stitching to the bright, vibrant colors. And the fit? AMAZING! As a matter of fact, my husband's eyes about popped out of his head when he saw me wearing it, and he started feeling a little bit frisky. Men seem to like a woman in the kitchen, despite the fact that it's 2012, and they like seeing a woman look pretty and flirty while she whips up a home-cooked meal. My husband actually requested that I cook dinner wearing nothing BUT the apron. (So not happening with 3 kids in the house!) Can't blame the guy for trying, though!
Overall, I am thrilled with my item from Flirty Aprons. It's very well-made and will protect my clothing from any kitchen mishaps that may occur, and I get to feel like a bombshell while I am wearing it, since it is so feminine and definitely flatters my curves. I may need to order a few more in different patterns and colors! Sure, you may equate these kitchen accessories as being June Cleaver-Esque, but I guess the Beav's mama had it right all along. Who says June Cleaver wasn't one sexy mama, after all?!
