Get messy in the kitchen with Jessie Steele aprons from Sex and the City 2
Posted on July 7, 2010
Charlotte gets kitsch in the kitchen.
Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) has had her ups and downs since the start of the Sex and the City franchise, but she’s (almost) always handled them with class. She’s an old fashioned romantic, and while her first marriage didn’t work out (despite her efforts), the second is going well. But now she’s got adopted daughter Lily and toddler Rose to keep an eye on the cracks are beginning to show. And hiring a nanny doesn’t help, since she constantly worries about her husband being attracted to the braless Erin (Alice Eve).
But whether she’s falling off a camel in Abu Dhabi or lunching with the girls, Charlotte always manages to look well put together. Nowhere is this more evident than when she’s baking hundreds of pink cupcakes with her two daughters. And this is down to the beautiful Jessie Steele apron she’s wearing to keep her white outfit free of pink spots. Unfortunately Lily manages to add a couple of pink handprints to her ensemble, but we’re sure the dry cleaners can handle that.
The aprons are “influenced by the romantic visions of a bygone era, and designed in vibrant colors, flirty patterns and figure flattering shapes”. Helena Steele had been collecting vintage aprons for years when she decided to team up with her daughter to “create vintage aprons that would both reflect the retro whimsy of the 1940’s and 50’s and meet the challenging needs of today’s woman.” And Charlotte certainly has some ‘challenging needs’ but she manages to looks perfect while juggling her commitments.
She wears the ‘Audrey’ cupcake apron with pink edging and double pockets, which you can also get in child size as you can see on Lily in the movie. And the aprons and matching kitchen accessories are a bargain too, with many on sale online. We’ve found the original cupcake printed pinny online, but we also fell in love with some of the other designs. There are cherries, polka dots, leopard print and even one in a kitsch kitchen utensils print. These aprons also make the perfect gift for almost every occasion so get yours now.
