Welcome Spring Fling - That Was Then, This is Now IV

Welcome SITS ladies! Today we celebrate the official "Spring Fling" for The Secret in the Sauce, so please click here to enter the Floral Apron giveaway from Apron Frenzy.

As I was strolling around the web looking at the changes that have occurred in the past 60+ years I pondered this photograph with it's perfectly coiffed women and their darling white aprons. Regretfully, if I had to do my hair like this daily, I would have a rat's nest up there. Not being the fashion plate for the latest trends, there are days when I am not sure how I came to create this blog. But then I digress, once again...

How'd they do that little flippy thing with their bangs? And what holds it in place. Then I wonder how did they keep those aprons so clean. Obviously, these were for show, right? For the record, I'd be the tallest one in the back with my hair just barely making the grade and hiding my coffee stained apron.




I am probably better transplanted into this photograph where women are running from the kitchen or their husbands or both. I think this is a race to see who can deliver their food in the pan the quickest. I hope the winner gets to eat first and maybe the looser should wash the dishes. I can run pretty fast so I'd take my chances in this picture, skillet and all.

Side note: I would bet a bezillion dollars that none of the ladies in the classic picture would ever be caught dead running like this with a frying pan unless being chased by an ax murderer.

Finally, here and now, these hip 20-somethings, wearing their skinny leg and boot cut jeans paired with the colorful-cool striped aprons, represents a real modern take on groups of women in aprons. They must be tossing the matching potholders in the air in celebration of the freedom that fashion and aprons now represent. Right? Tell me I am right on this one... or are they just posers shirking their responsibilities? I am thinking these modern gals are total gamers and could be placed in either of the above photos.

Regardless, I hope this pictorial left you amused or at least entertained for few moments in your day. And as always, wear your apron. (At least at some point in the day!)

I loved your photos. The top one reminds of my grandmother with her "Blue Star Women" They all looked like that. My GMs aprons were always spottless. So were all her whites for that matter. I can remember her boiling her whites. Don't know what was in the pots with the whites, but they were always line dryed when done.
Other thing, my mother was always in a dress or skirt,hair fixed and an apron around her waist, when I would get up for breakfast.Not me. My kids saw me getting breakfast in my jammies!

This was funny, I really like the pics, especially that last one.

I enjoyed that post. Liked having a look down memory lane for the aporn. It's nice to see that somehting so simple can change with the times, the meaning of the apron is no longer a symbol of "Housewife". Thanks for sharing.

Fun photos! I actually wore my apron all day long yesterday. I forgot it was on! I think my husband is wondering what is up with me lately!

That photo of the ladies in aprons with frying pans is tooo funny!

Debbie said...

I am amused! Especially by the frying pan photo.

Karen said...

I can see them doing either. Whatever it takes to make the world a better place.

I love it that aprons are coming back in style & doesn't mean you are a slave to the kitchen and housework!! I love all of the designs!! I don't have an apron and would love to own one. I was amused!!

Grand Pooba said...

LOL, oh I love it. How did they get their hair to stay like that? But a more important question, why did they do their hair like that!!??

Amused, for sure. I love how in the first group picture, all the ladies just look so happy to be there with their flippy hair and pristine white aprons. Makes me want to throw a pie at them. :) For fun, you know.
