It’s no secret that I have a love affair going with Jessie Steele aprons. And PJs. And well, everything else they make. It is not often that you find such sweet items with such genuine femininity, inspired details and timeless style. They are gorgeously vintage, whimsical and just plain lovely. And these are never things I thought I would be saying about aprons and PJ’s…but here I am, doing just that.
Jessie Steele was started by the ultra creative mother/daughter duo, Helena and Claire Steele. Helena - the designer with a knack for sewing and merchandising, and Claire – a former model and fashion and marketing connoisseur – make for a powerful and savvy pair. Since they started the company nearly a decade ago, they have been adored by thousands and have been seen everywhere!
Their lovelies are carried by over 3,000 retailers in over 27 countries. And you may have seen them in a few little magazines (like Vogue and Better Homes and Gardens) or on Oprah, Desperate Housewives or in Sex and the City2. Jennifer Aniston and Marcia Cross are big fans (and maybe they are the ones that snatched up my Mrs. Claus apron?). Yep – looks like a few of us are sharing this love affair.
If you have never had the pleasure of wearing something from Jessie Steele – that all may be about to change. Because we are giving away the most adorable apron and mitt set EVER. Think of it as a little post-holiday gift for yourself. The Jessie Steele Harvest Toile Courtney Apron, according to their website, was, “inspired by 16th century France, our Harvest Toile is a chic update on a unique vintage print.” The classic print consists of lovely brown scenery with delicate pink accents on a warm cream background. The Courtney apron features a bias trim, an adorable (and removable) silk pink flower and a handy side pocket.
And because we love our readers so much, the lucky winner will also receive the matching oven mitts. To enter, all you have to do is comment below and email us at email@example.com telling us what your favorite Jessie Steele pattern is. You have until Tuesday, January 24th! Good luck! – LW
