I love aprons, and I'll 'fess up to having quite the collection of them - from holiday related to vintage hostess aprons. Yes, I wear them - there's a reason aprons were an important part of every housewife's wardrobe: they help keep your clothes clean and fight wear and tear on them! It's a lot easier to wash a small apron than the entire outfit you are wearing when kitchen disasters happen! ;)
When I was a little girl, I remember my mother having this old school drop oil apron that she used for just about everything on the small farm I grew up on - from washing the dogs to picking up the eggs. Would you believe it's STILL going strong? That apron has got to be almost as old as me now! So when I spotted the Gloveables Black Zebra Oil-cloth Apron, I knew this was exactly what I needed!
This nifty apron has a fun black and white zebra print, while having a very feminine shape. I love the scalloped edges! Like the apron that's lasted my mother for many years, it has a spill proof finish, so it stands up to your messiest cleaning jobs without soaking your blouse! It also has these wonderful pockets in the front hat you can slip anything fro a few light garden tools to scissors to a hand towel in. It feels sturdy to the touch, while still bending when you move around or bend down. Let me say it again: I LOVE THIS APRON!!!! lol
They also sent me an awesome pair of the Pink / Zebra with Black Bow Gloves from Gloveables to match when I am scrubbing the dirty stuff. Can I just say it was love at first sight? My hands have been a mess lately, so having these fun gloves to scrub in instead of the disposable ones I'd been using - and that I'd often poke my fingers through - was wonderful. Take that, icky bathroom germs! ;)
If Zebra print is not your thing - I understand ;) - they have lots of other prints and colors available, from cherries to leopard to beautiful floral prints. There's a little bit of everything for all the retro housewives out there to match just about any color scheme!
