Hip Hostess Apron Giveaway

The internet really is a remarkable thing. A few weeks ago, I found The Hip Hostess on Twitter and started following the dynamic mother-daughter team. The name of their company and their brief twitter bio (Owner/Designer The Hip Hostess, a hip collection of seriously stylish aprons) drew me in. I immediatley went to their Web site to find out more information about them, which is where I fell in love with them even more.

The duo started when daughter Andrea, a new bride, was looking for that perfect apron to wear as a newlywed hostess. Let’s be honest, some aprons can be rather frump-a-licious. Luckily, for the fashionable Andrea, her mother Debbie, is the “queen of creativity” and was able to make her a few “trendy numbers”. Once people saw the aprons Andrea had, they naturally asked where they were from and wanted their own. Soon, requests started pouring in and with Andrea’s enthusiasm and support, so began The Hip Hostess.

From their Web site: “Now we find ourselves on a mission: combine simple, contemporary style with fabulous fabrics to create a “couture in the kitchen” look that today’s modern woman will want and actually wear. After lots of researching, designing, and brainstorming… not to mention wishing & hoping and planning & dreaming VOILA! We think we’ve got it and hope you’ll love it!”

And love it, we do! I’m not one to always wear aprons when I’m just at home cooking for myself, but when I’m having company over and attempting to get all of my timing down the conversation in my head (and often times out loud) goes a little something like this: “When should I put this in the oven. When should I wash the dishes, oh, but wait, I still have to shower and do my makeup, and figure out what I’m wearing. But what if guests start showing up!? Should I just run and shower now even though guests are arriving in 2.2 minutes. What if they come while I’m still in the shower?! Well then, that’ll just be awkward.” This is where a Hip Hostess apron comes into play. Shower, get dressed, do your makeup, take care of your business, toss a pretty apron on, and proceed with whatever it is you have to do around the house. And when your guests arrive, you’ll look divine. Hey, you can even skip the shower and toss one of these aprons on as your outfit and you’ll still look great πŸ˜‰

The Hip Hostess offers Sheath Style Aprons, Demi Style Aprons, and Cafe Style Aprons in really fun, bright, and beautiful prints and all are machine washable. Some of my favorites:

Meri Mixers … Is this not perfect? I love the retro feel of it!
