As a general rule I feel that men should NEVER buy their wife anything such a blender, vacuum or whisk for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and the like. This year I actually asked Alex to get me one such similar item for Christmas.
The Flirty Everyday Housewife Apron by Momo's Retro Fashions is super cute. I am constantly spilling stuff on myself when I cook and an apron would help. I tried to prevent the spills, by wearing Olivia's apron. Let me tell you it is a sad state when you have to wear your 4 year old's small little apron...and it is not very cute at all. Basically, I just look foolish, although I am sure it gives my husband a good laugh. If I must cook, I sure would like to look fashionable and sassy. The aprons are inspired by a 1950's pattern and the fabrics are great. I also think it is great the gal that makes them models the finished product on her site so you can get a feel for how it will fit.
I really hope Alex comes through or I may just have to buy myself one.
Edit: The gal modeling the aprons is the maker's daughter. :)
Edited after Christmas: What a great husband I have, he came through with the very apron featured in the blog. Thanks babe.
