Real Fashionistas Wear Aprons Giveaway

Here’s to hoping that I’m not the only one who received a few styling tips from the likes of Beaver Cleaver’s beloved mother June during adolescence. Before the term fashionista had even been thought up, Mrs. Cleaver was displaying characteristics of a fabulous fashion maven via her never-ending supply of kitchen aprons; all of which made the transition from unfussy cooking uniform to stunning hostess attire with complete ease. It is this effortlessness alone which just goes to show that real fashionistas wear aprons; and now one (1) of you has the chance to make one your very own.

Café Fashionista has teamed up with Portland, Oregon designer Christa Taylor to bring one (1) of you fantastic foodies the apron pictured at right – a kitchen accessory that will make you look fabulous even when you’re in the midst of cooking up a storm (or simply sneaking a few spoonfuls of cake batter before popping your prize-winning dessert into the oven!).

To Enter the Real Fashionistas Wear Aprons Giveaway:

Visit Christa Taylor and choose your favorite item.

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, April 1, 2010 at midnight PST stating which Christa Taylor item is your favorite.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post stating which Christa Taylor item is your favorite between now and Thursday, April 1, 2010 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader/Google Friend Connect/Twitter, and leave a comment on this post stating which Christa Taylor item is your favorite between now and Thursday, April 1, 2010 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick one (1) name out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Friday, April 2, 2010.

Good luck everyone!

This Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents!


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Christa Taylor for the picture.

Adore the Jan sweater dress and the classic Marina skirt...I can't make up my mind!

I had never thought of June Cleaver as a stylish lady, but thinking back, you're right! Always with her pearl necklace, always classy!

Lovin' the Jan sweater dress. It's so simple and chic!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

A Portland, Oregon designer! Say it ain't so! I love some type of fashion coming out of my city- thanks for the Portland boost Erika. So I gotta say I love all those dresses- lord, I couldn't pick one so I narrowed my "pick" to the Paris Trench because it's beyond adorable.

Amanda said...

I'm a sucker for this apron:)

I think aprons are so adorable. Sad that more people don't use them. They make cooking/baking even more exciting than it already is! xo

ellie said...

I think aprons have done more for us than we know..I love apron challenge at the Angry Chicken website best. I've learned to make smocks that way out of stuff I didn't have a use for.

Lovely apron!

Rick said...

my girlfriend would think I'm trying to be sneaky to get her to cook
(um, sign me up lol)

Robyn said...

I love cute aprons, they make cooking more fun! I often check Anthropologie or Ebay for them. :)

Ok, contest: I'm a follower, and my favorite piece is a toss-up between the black Paris trench and the lined Letizia dress. Both are so classic and understated- perfect!
