Hostess with the Mostess: Surprise Giveaways!Hostess with the Mostess: Surprise Giveaways!Ooh-la-la! Carolyn’s West’s unique, vintage-inspired “Carolyn’s Kitchen” aprons and gloves are reminiscent of the pin-up era and a fun way to play dress-up in the kitchen :) In Carolyn’s own words: “I wanted to bring back the glamour, sexiness, and cuteness of a bygone innocent era. The gloves and fabrics are new and nicer – it’s a new and improved version of the ’40’s. I let my imagination run, and originated the embodiment of that 40’s girl in the apron and gloves, living in our ultra modern age…”

Ready to play dress up? Just make a comment on this post and you could be on your way to winning your own Carolyn’s Kitchen apron and glove set – like the Rock-n-Roll Faux Fur Gloves and red, black and white Dorothy Apron pictured here. The winner can pick their favorite designs from the collection! (Giveaway ends Wed, March 14th at midnight PST)

  35. Melanie says:

    Dinner parties or just everyday supper,
    My kitchen needs a pick-me-upper

    I’ve tied a towel ’round my waist,
    and donning a robe, I’ve tried to baste.

    Oh wait, what’s this? Vintage aprons galore!
    Ad-libbing may not be needed much more.

    A new reader who loves the host with the most,
    Would love an apron, to cherish and boast.
