Sartorial Saturday–An Apron with a Conscience

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

When I first saw the Rare Dirndl Lemonade Stand apron, I thought it was pretty. But when I learned that the proceeds from the aprons were going to Alex’s Lemonade Stand to benefit pediatric cancer research, I knew that it wasn’t just pretty, it was also a piece of clothing with a conscience!

I actually didn’t have my purple dirndl in mind when I ordered the apron…at least not for my first styling. But when I saw the lovely color in the flowers, a faint pinkish-purple, I knew that it would be perfect…and I really love purple and yellow together, too!

I went with lots of edelweiss accessories:

It’s such a summery look!

I’d love to see Rare Dirndl do more charity aprons in the future…it’s a great way for me to support both a small business and a good cause!

Sartorial Saturday–The Crystal Apron

Last year, I ordered a fun, whimsical apron from Rare Dirndl to change up the look of one of my dirndls for Christmas. I’ve added a second special apron to my wardrobe, but instead of being bright and fun, this one is glamorous and elegant, words I didn’t know could be used to describe an apron!

Here’s a close-up of the beautiful beading…it really sparkles in the sunlight!

When I first saw this apron, I thought that it wouldn’t go with anything in my wardrobe…until I thought about the color scheme of “Die Heimat,” which is the perfect backdrop for this stunning separate!

I love having a way to really dress up one of my dirndls!

Christmas Apron

I found this adorable apron for half off at Eckert’s when we stopped in there today. We may only have a few days of Christmas left, but I’m looking forward to wearing it while I can, and then again next year!
