How many is too many?

Remember the apron that I "needed"? Well, I received it as a gift, and I love it. It filled a void in my apron collection - the floral and polka dot void. My apron needs were met!

Until.

Until I realized that I didn't have a single mustard pear apron (an absolute staple) in my collection. Obviously my assortment is deficient!


I actually touched and held this apron at Target today, but left without it. That would be called strength

Target has aprons???

I also have a problem keeping enough aprons. I buy just about every one that goes to clearance at Anthropologie.

oooh...I do love this one as well, BUT I am still covetting the first one that you now own (be leary if I drop by the house unannounced- an unidentified apron may go missing!)

I don't have any, I think that's a major problem. I am in need. There are too many cute ones to choose from. A lot of cute ones on Etsy. You're inspired me to buy one....as soon as I make up my mind.

I am so in need of an apron period. . .here I am wearing a dishcloth and clothes pins! Just pitiful. http://golly-holly.blogspot.com/2009/02/superbowl-09.html I have thought of making one, but my to do list is just too long. . .baby on the way in April.

There is no such thing as too many aprons... just like there is no such thing as too much fabric! :)

Wow, I am proud of you! It's hard to leave Target without buying something. Fess up... what was in the bag? haha I love aprons, and that one was exceptionally cute!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

I've found it incredibly difficult to leave Target without filling my cart to the brim with all of Orla Kiely's stuff. That apron would be no exception :)

I'm a total apron addict myself!

I understand. I made one pillow so far from that same line. It is too cute! I have the pillow on my blog if you'd like to see.

I am guilty...I bought the apron a few weeks ago, brought it home, tried it on...and didn't really like it! The neckline was uncomfortable to me...lucky me!!!

Stength, self-control, and will power. You go girl! I think you can do anything.

I also stood in front of the Orla Kiely endcap and drooled over this apron while my husband told me I had enough aprons and rolled his eyes. I left without it. And was very sad. And dropped many hits to said eye-rolling husband. Within 24 hours, he had brought it home for as a surprise! Yay Hubby!

BUT - It's also uncomfortable and doesn't fit me well. It pulls on my neck, and the waistband sits just below my boobs. I think Orla doesn't design for the well-endowed. :S
