Vera, Vera, Vera…

I have been known to quip that I only have a kitchen because it came with the house, but the truth is I do use it daily for important functions like making coffee, microwaving things, storing my refrigerator, and cooking a meal here and there.  I don’t possess a lot of fancy cooking equipment and I definitely don’t own an apron.  I did own a few aprons once upon a time…back in the day when I was a young wife and mother.  I have moved on from aprons without regret.  I would guess that the majority of folks are with me on this one.

So when I saw the below Vera Wang design on clearance at Kohl’s all I could do was shake my head and utter under my breath, “Vera, Vera, Vera.”

I ask you dear readers – do you see what I see?  I see an apron-inspired sparkle top; and, sorry Vera – I understand why it is on clearance.  This top is so very Donna Reed-esque in a day and age when fewer and fewer people know who Donna Reed is.  I have to wonder what Vera was going for with this – maybe attire for Celebrity Chef or a guest appearance on Martha Stewart’s television show.

Sorry Vera – I like your spunk as a designer – but you lost me at the apron look.  ;-)

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
