Lucy should have had one of these......

Vintage and retro pictures, movies and kitchen products from decades past are one of my favorite things to indulge in when I have the time. I share this interest with many others, so it was no surprise while web surfing that I came across the cutest vintage-inspired aprons .

Inspired by a gorgeous apron and glove set from Paris, Carolyn West-Owner of Carolyn's Kitchen, began by discovering 1940's patterns and bringing them to life with her modern interpretive designs.
"I wanted to bring back the glamour, sexiness, and cuteness of a bygone innocent era. The gloves and fabrics are new and nicer - it's a new and improved version of the '40's."

I think I will be buying these for Christmas gifts this year. What a fun idea for all of the girlfriends in your life. Come on now...there is a little "cheesecake" in all of us! Don't you agree?

  1. Ok, how cute is that apron...although I don't wear one...I love it. It looks like something my Grandma would have worn!

  2. Oh I just found the perfect Christmas gift for my new daughter in law. She told me last night that she does not know how to cook and my son is begging her to learn. This set along with a few good cookbooks will be perfect. I am going to choose the Marilyn Monroe one for her :)
    Thanks for the great post!

  3. Hey, Carrie! I'm dying for those gloves, or some like them...

  4. If I actually cooked, I'd totally wear this apron - cute and fitting with a little sex appeal! But I don't spend too much time in the kitchen, unless it's to bake brownies or warm up a lean cuisine. ;)

  5. You will never find me in the kitchen, sadly to admit. But I so admire you Cookie Girl.

  6. Hey Love the Music :)
    And what cool vintage (looking) finds! Ok Im not a kitchen dweller... :(
    But I do assist, every now and then, and my how cute I would look LOL
