Designer Vintage Inspired Aprons from Grandway (Review and Giveaway)

by SuZ Besecker

When I get in the kitchen and get down to work, it can get pretty messy. And while I will buy every baking or cooking gadget under the sun, you’d think I would also buy an apron to help minimize the mess. But I don’t, because aprons are usually so dowdy and annoying and pretty darn ugly, if you ask me.

Grandway’s designer vintage-inspired aprons have changed all that.

I was recently sent the Audrey, a black floral designed pin-up style apron, for review.

Gorgeous.

Audrey is just one of the designer vintage-inspired aprons available from Grandway. They also have the Betty, Lindy, and several other super cute styles and fabric options to choose from.

The aprons do a great job of protecting your clothing because they have a larger coverage (especially over the chest area). They also have a great pocket on the front to stash recipes and any other things you want to stick in there.

Another fantastic thing about the Grandway aprons is that they are 100% cotton which means they are long lasting and durable.

And again, the most important fact about the aprons, they are PRETTY! Any woman would feel pretty wearing these aprons while making yummy treats in the kitchen.
