For me, there's nothing like the feeling of making a home-cooked meal for my family. I'm not what you would call an "experienced cook" (do the air quotes with your fingers for me, please) or even all that much of a creative one, but if there's a recipe, I can follow it to the letter. And when I can look around the table and see a whole meal that I put together, I take great pride in that.
Unfortunately, the combination of lack of time and picky kids (and adults) leads to me usually feeling pretty uninspired when it comes to the kitchen. So who would have thought that all it would take to make me want to get in there and do some serious cooking would be an apron? However, this isn't just any apron. This is the Little Black Dress of aprons, it's the Original Sassy Black apron from Flirty Aprons.
Definitely the site to go to for aprons that will make any woman look and feel beautiful, Flirty Aprons has found a way to involve fun and fashion while performing traditional, everyday activities. Their wide selection of stylish and high quality aprons come in so many great colors and patterns that there is sure to be at least one that fits your personality and decor.
Aside from the obvious ultra-attractiveness, the first thing I noticed when checking out my Original Sassy Black apron was the condition of the item itself and the workmanship that went into making it. Having grown up with a mother who is an excellent seamstress and doing a little sewing myself, I immediately noticed that the 100% soft cotton fabric was fully lined and each seam was clean and strong.
Measuring in at 21" in width and 27" in length with generous ties on each side and an adjustable neck, this apron truly does fit all sizes without being overly baggy or frumpy looking. It was easily able to keep me clean and comfortable and, although not exactly made for her, my little cooking helper was able to be quite stylish as well:
In reality, Flirty Aprons knows that kids are anxious to help out with the cooking and has a full line of children's aprons that are an even cuter, scaled-down version of the women's aprons. Or, if the man in your life is the chef around your house, the men's aprons are strong, durable and manly enough for even the most masculine cook.
Following their mission to create products that truly help you rediscover what it means to be cute and fun in and around your home even while performing a mundane task, Flirty Aprons has done just that. Their bright colors, fun patterns and sassy styles are a welcome change compared to the usual aprons found in stores or online.
Add to that the high quality (even after multiple wearings and washings, my apron hasn't torn or faded one bit), affordability, easy return policy and stellar customer service and this is the site to go to for a unique and stylish item for yourself or as a gift. For your next housewarming party, bridal shower or the upcoming Mother's Day, an apron from Flirty Aprons is a item that can surely make cooking more fun for anyone.
