I have an obsession. I usually do not tell people about it. Like it is a dirty little secret…. I am a professional chef. I rock the white coat and look good but I adore little frilly and pretty aprons. Really! The prettier and more feminine the better. If an apron is made with all lace I am in love. Of course these aprons are not wearable but hang on my kitchen wall. You can’t really cook in these creations. Especially when your cooking can often resemble the work of the Swedish Chef on the Muppets..you know what I mean, with food flying everywhere.
My problem has been solved. Lulu’s High Country Kitchen makes aprons that are absolutely adorable but completely wearable. These sturdy aprons are made to not only be cute as heck, but you can actually wear them in the kitchen. YAY!
When I met Lulu I was delighted when she rolled up to our meeting with sunglasses on carrying a canning jar box with aprons in it. She obviously is a hipster canning girl too! We sat down at a local coffee shop and talked mostly about music, living in the mountains of Colorado and Jamestown. As you all know Jamestown is my favorite place in Colorado.
Lulu is also a professional chef and she spoke of her inspiration for making cute and wearable aprons. She is an artistic and creative person who just wanted to work in something more interesting than the usual black apron or white chefs coat. She took matters into her own hands and designed her own line of aprons. You just have to love a person like this!
Those darling aprons spoke for themselves. I fingered the professional seams and marveled at the sturdy design and fabric. I did not need to ask much about them and the quality spoke volumes.
Lulu is serious when she says she is making a line of wearable aprons. The quality is better than the ones I get at the restaurant supply store.
Lulu and her husband live in the mountains and are both artistic. Her being a chef and him a talented musician. They live a lifestyle most of us only dream about.
Lulu is happy to give away one of her darling creations to a lucky reader from this blog. Just comment below and you are entered to win. Pin the aprons on Pinterest or post on Face book to get more entries.
