So, what did this newlywed domestic diva ask her husband for her birthday? A sophisticated apron, of course. I have recently launched into a new career as a food stylist. But I cannot get just any apron dirty. Nonetheless, to prevent any such birthday surprises, we went shopping for it together several weeks ago. I have always adored those fluffy, froufrou aprons from Anthropologie. You know the ones with a pocket for a Diptyque candle and another for a green drink? However, I needed an apron to communicate that I am serious, capable, and have good knife skills. Needless to say, if you are looking for the best array of quality home goods in Paris, specifically the best selection of aprons, Lafayette Home Opera is the place. There are several walls of aprons and matching accessories of every color, pattern, and persuasion. And I found a real beaute. What kind of chicery is this, you might ask? It’s purple ombre canvas with a discrete and slimming kangaroo pocket, perfect for an I-phone or a snack. And I couldn’t resist adding on a matching oven mit and kitchen towels. I’m a real housewiii, I mean, food stylist now!
