Can you look good in the kitchen?

December 13, 2013

That might sound like a brash question, because the answer is obviously a loud “Yes!” There is a common misconception that since the kitchen is where we prepare and eat food, and get messy doing it, that we have to wear scrubby clothes. Not anymore. Long gone are the days of greasy clothes covers or bland aprons. With Flirty Aprons, you can look fabulous in the kitchen all while staying clean.

The kitchen is more than just an area for cooking. Today, the kitchen is a place for conversations, catching up, late night conversations with friends, and watching news for some in the morning. Whether you are entertaining some friends late into the evening or whipping up delicious goodies for your family in the mornings, the right kind of apron will balance functionality and style during your routine. With our sexy aprons, it doesn’t hurt to attract a little attention from your significant other either.

Affordable Fashions for Mom

November 16, 2013

Moms rock. Sometimes it feels like Groundhogs day when you get in your routine of taking care of the little ones and cleaning up after dad. But when you do get some “me time,” who doesn’t love fashion? You might not feel like spending a fortune on it anymore, but affordable fashion is available. You just have to know where to look.

The first trick of affordable fashion is resale or thrift shops. Most every town has a store that sells used clothing and accessories. These are great places to pick up some really neat fashion pieces at affordable prices that will keep you on trend without breaking the bank. Checking out the local thrift shop is exciting too. With so many items to look through, patience can reveal a buried treasure on the clothing racks.

Another trick is a discount fashion store, like Ross or TJ Maxx. You have probably seen these advertised as selling the latest fashions at mark-down prices. If you have one of these stores nearby, they are a good resource to allow you to add affordable fashion to your wardrobe. While the prices are slightly higher than a thrift shop, you can often find more name brand items. Plus, they’re unused and ready to rock.

An affordable way to add fashion to an outfit you already have is to add a scarf. One scarf can dress up a plain outfit in seconds, taking it from last season to current in minutes. Since boots are the in thing, if you spend money on one pair of good boots you’ll have a fashion accessory that you can tie into multiple wardrobe variations, all without breaking the bank.

We all know, “if momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” With a quick trip to a discount fashion store, you’ll be looking good and feeling good. And that makes for a happy household. Go treat yourself. You deserve it.

Scarves – Simple and Functional

October 4, 2013

A scarf is one cool item every woman should possess. A tastefully designed scarf greatly enhances beauty, especially when you get into matching it with your wardrobe. Other than beauty, the best thing about a scarf is its ability to keep you warm. When you’re ready to rock a scarf and add one to your wardrobe, a few important items to consider are material and price.

Scarves are not created the same; some scarf materials are heavier than others are. A heavier scarf is ideal when it is bitterly cold. However, for a night on the town, a lighter scarf is better for easier movement during conversation. Having a mix of light and heavy scarves in your wardrobe is the best way of keeping yourself warm depending on the severity of the weather.

Another reason why scarves are so cool is their price. Considering their benefits of heat and fashion, they are staggeringly affordable. Let’s be honest, not many items in a woman’s wardrobe are as cheap as a scarf and yet it keeps you warm and glowing with beauty. Therefore, if you feel you need something to keep you warm during cold, add a scarf to your wardrobe. The item does not cost much yet they are invaluable during these ever-cold winter streaks. Moreover, because we all want to look and feel beautiful, a scarf is one item that will enhance beauty while serving the primary purpose of protecting us from the elements.

It is true that we do not buy things solely because they are cheap, but all of the functionality that scarves provide too is definitely and added bonus.
