I fancy myself a bit of a cook, I spend hours a day in the kitchen. Part of this is because of necessity, the rest is because I honestly love to cook. But I have a problem – I am an extremely messy cook (just ask my mom!) Despite being a messy cook, I rarely use aprons. Instead my jeans and t-shirts get covered in flour, juice and whatever I’m working with.
That is not to say – I don’t own aprons, or like them. I actually love aprons, they’re fun cute and a bit of a past generation. Recently I found a great website that has adorable aprons – House of Minerva, and they offered to send me one to review.
There are a lot of different apron options on the market, a lot are utilitarian. House of Minerva provide fun options that are different than the rest of the market. Their fabrics are inspired by Retro and Art Deco patterns, and they offer aprons for men, women and children. They also have a large selection of dresses, bags, tablets sleeves and guitar straps.
I selected the Lucy Apron – the fabric consists of retro kitchenware. Since I fancy myself somewhat of a modern 1950’s housewife, I found it not only adorable but fitting. Not only does the apron have the cute fabric on one side, it is completely reversible to a yellow inside and machine washable.
My new apron made its first trip to this week while I was baking cookies. The first thing I noticed was the size of the straps, they could almost wrap around me twice. They were easy to tie and stayed secured through the whole process. I love that the apron has two large pockets on the front for recipes or utensils. And most of all, I loved that after I was done – my clothes weren’t a floury mess!
