Carolyn’s Kitchen Holiday Sparkle Apron
I know you all remember Carolyn’s Kitchen from our fabulous Dorothy Apron Review and Daisy Apron Giveaway at the beginning of the summer. The Dorothy Apron and Daisy Aprons are some of my favorites, but leave it to Carolyn West, the creative designer and aproness herself, to come up with some fabulously new fun and flirty styles just for the holidays. Again, I had a difficult time choosing between her styles for the Fall/Winter release 2010, given the choice between the Party in Pink, Tease Pots (love the name by the way!), Tease Cups, and Holiday Sparkle Aprons. In true Carolyn’s Kitchen fashion, these aprons are sweet and sexy with a vintage feel. Don’t let the word “vintage” fool you though! These fabulous aprons are not something you’d find in your Grandma’s kitchen. Carolyn’s aprons have been described as aprons that “enhance the merriment of playing whimsical dress-up combined with the indulgent delights of naughty pin-ups.”
As much as I loved the tea pots and cups (sassily named “Tease Pots and Tease Cups), I decided to go with one of the holiday aprons. Although the Party in Pink was fabulous, I went with the Holiday Sparkle this time around. I also love my Dorothy Full Apron, but this time, in a deliberate attempt to be different, I decided to go with the half apron style. My Holiday Sparkle half apron, pictured above, has a a multitude of different Christmas trees on it (red, white, pink, etc.) in their own fabulous styles (striped, polka dot, etc.). As with any half apron, it ties in the back, but the front is also graced with a big red bow with white polka dots. The same pattern of red and white polka dots adds some sass in a garter style bunching towards the bottom of the apron and also is used as the frilly bottom trim. I cannot wait to have my first holiday party of the season! This, and all Carolyn’s aprons, are made in the USA, are machine washable, and are easily ironed. All of her latest and greatest aprons come in full or half size, have matching gloves, and most with matching garters available too. These aprons, especially the holiday ones, make fabulous hostess gifts or just holiday gifts for your favorite Domestic Diva!
