I've never been much of a chef. As a matter of fact, I don't think I made a homemade "from-scratch" meal until I was engaged to be married. And my poor hubby-to-be probably had to choke it down. I tend to overcook my meat and undercook my pasta. If I can't zap it in the microwave, it's just too complicated for my taste. Sure, I can fool many and throw a kick-ass party with the help of my food bible, Joy of Cooking, and the Martha website. But mostly, I just fake it to make it.
Thanks to Carolyn's Kitchen, I can role play "hostess with the most-ess" every night.
These are not your grandmother's aprons. Think Sex and the Domesti-city. Carolyn West's retro-inspired aprons and gloves intertwine fanciful dress-up with mischievous pin-up girls. Her goal is to bring back the glamour and sexiness of the 1940's, using fashionable, modern fabrics. All aprons are made here in the U.S.A. and are carefully constructed with the highest quality 100% cotton fabric and eyelet lace trim. Celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Laila Ali, Cheryl Burke and The Girls Next Door have all caught onto the frivolous fun that is Carolyn's Kitchen!
Did you ever think an apron could make you feel pretty and provocative? From wild and animalistic to sweet and romantic, there's a style for every personality. Are you the spontaneous, daring type? Tease him by showing some skin in the Marilyn Apron & Bandeau. Or perhaps you're more shy and coy? The versatile Dorothy Apron (with optional garter) lets you decide just how much or how little to reveal.
With these sexy, sassy aprons, your oven won't be the only thing steaming up the kitchen. Your significant other may even come help you stir things up! *wink wink* If you're culinary-impaired like moi, rest assured that no matter how bad your meal may taste, you know he'll be coming back for more just to catch a glimpse of you in your get-up. And even if you make a mess of the food, at least you won't make a mess of your dress.
