Do you wear an apron?

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
I'd been thinking about getting a few aprons for awhile now. I don't have many clothes and I can't afford to ruin them with stains. So yesterday I ordered a few really cute vintage aprons from Etsy.

So am I a really huge geek, or does anyone else wear an apron? (Or both. Ha!) When do you wear it? When cooking? When cleaning? All day long?

I do! I have a crappy Tupperware apron that I got from someone on freecycle a while back and then my favorite one which DH got me.

I wear them all day. There is just no point to me taking it off. I am always doing something and it comes in handy with my toddler's grubby hands always groping me for boobie-time.

I wear one every time I cook, and I fling a dish towel over my shoulder. I want to make some more so I have some variety.

Honeydee, that is super cute! I love that.

These are the ones I bought:

It was $15 for the three of them, so I figure that $5 each was a good price. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the ADORABLE vintage half-apron I saw at a flea market yesterday. So I tried to console myself by shopping on Etsy.

I'm addicted to Etsy. I'm also addicted to vintage tea towels and napkins. Now I think we can safely add aprons to that addiction.

I want one of those flirty, sexy-looking aprons, too. I figure if I end up using my new aprons a lot, I will splurge and get something a little more expensive. (And also so I don't totally wear out my vintage ones!)

I wear one sometimes. I should wear one all the time when I cook, but I don't. I usually wear one when what I am doing involves flour, but I remind myself after the fact, usually that I OUGHT to wear one when I am around something greasy.

I love my aprons. And I must say so does DH . I wear them to clean and cook. One of mine has nice pockets so as I straighten up stuff gets put in them to get to it's place

No, I don't, but it's a good idea!
post #11 of 90
Ooooo! Now I want one!!

If I had one, I would wear it. Matter fact, would have a different one for each thing. One for cleaning, one for cooking, and one for baking. I love aprons. I just got a pattern to make some in the near future.

I just got one from Ross -- it is really cute, shaped almost like an A-line coctail dress from the 50's or something, but ya' know, with no back It is floral, but vintage looking. Love it.

The best thing is, they had ones for kids too, yay! I got one for dd -- it is pastel and the same material as flour sacks...kwim? it is so cute!

I love my apron!!

Oh I love those! I just looked briefly but I might go back for the flirty housewife apron (OT - love her haircut too!).

I was just thinking yesterday that I could really use an apron while we were making cookies. I usually stick a handtowel in my back pocket or waistband to wipe my hands on - classy, I know...

Thanks for that link!

Yay! I'm so glad that more people are catching the apron love. : It seems like it's really coming back into style. Maybe as more people can't afford to buy new clothes all the time it will become a necessity.

I am loving all these etsy links, especially the print on that last one.

I don't have an apron, so I never wear one. But those are too cute and now I really want one.
