Apron Couture

Apron is often an overlooked accessory in the kitchen.  Unless you are working in a commercial kitchen where wearing an apron is a must, how many of us really wear aprons while cooking at home?  That said,  I do own a plain, unappealing burgundy coloured one lying somewhere in my kitchen storage – a clear sign that I rarely wear it. Ooopsie!

As I was doing my usual round of online shopping, I came across a couple of fabulous aprons, so fabulous that are worthy to be an outfit on its own. I’ve always have this eclectic taste in clothes (some would say “wacky”) but I couldn’t help to draw myself to Faith – Caramel cocktail apron (outfit No.6). Imagine this: a plain clingy black dress and hide the potential after-a-big-feast tummy fancy it up with this gorgeous frilly apron; then, complete the outfit with a pair of towering Christian Louboutin Classic Black Stiletto pumps (ok, maybe a knock-off version!), oh so glamorous, eh???  (G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S, yeah, G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S…. *Glamorous by Fergie playing in the background*)

Ok enough rambling from me. Before I continue to dream of turning my kitchen benchtop into a fashion runway, I’ve compiled some the collections which caught my attention. Enjoy! :D
