I bought this apron in the blue, because I thought the flower really made the style pop. And it does. The material is thinner than it looks from the photo, but it does not look cheap. It's just slightly less fancy than pictured. I loved this apron as soon as I saw and broke down and bought it before Christmas. I have done some serious baking in it and it has held up fine for being washed twice so far. (I even let it tumble dry on high with my normal laundry because I forgot it was in there, and it held up fine)
I am tall and slim, and the apron is definitely not figure flattering on me at all. The boy that lives in my house said I look like a "fluffly '50s housewife" when he walked in and saw me in it, But I don't really wear apons to look sexy, I feel like cute aprons make working in the kitchen more fun.. And since I spend so much time in the kitchen, obviously that's a good thing.
Price is fair, and I would not hesitate to buy again, but it is def. not a sexy piece if you are slim/athletic built like me, the material sits wide across the back half of my hips and does not hug at all, even after washing.

lovely and retro
I was looking for a unique apron for my older sister who loves to cook. I was in my local anthro store and saw this apron it was so pretty that I thought it was a dress. I bought it in the blue. It is so nice that I don't think my sister will want to cook in it and the great part is I got the apron 30% off!!! Can't wait to give it to her for x-mas

I LOVE my apron. I had my eye on this one for a long time and finally just had to pick it up. It's so cute, I wear it every chance I get. It hangs up in the kitchen when not in use, so everyone can see it, and it has gotten me compliments when people come over. My boyfriend thinks I look adorable in it, and he's a photographer, so we even did a little photo shoot in it!. It does require a little ironing after washing, but it's worth it. The only downfall is that it's so cute, I hate to get it dirty, and I have to be careful not to get anything on the white part, because I don't want it to stain. Of course, that doesn't stop me from using it all the time.
This is a cute and colorful egg crate. I am not sure I am going to use it 100% of the time for an egg crate. I am planning to also use it to hold some of my smaller pieces of jewelry!! I love the color. I am very happy with the purchase.

I have the habit of buying a lot of kitchen products.. and this is my favorite egg crate I have came across. I like it more than the Farmer's egg crate that Anthro also sells. I bought this one in turquoise. I love how they are stackable (great for storing them) and I prefer how they are half a dozen. Both white and brown eggs look great in it. I'm really happy with these!

A Great Buy
Seriously, can use for anything from propping eggs in (obviously the main reason it was created) to displaying jewelry or trinkets. Even could be used to hold paint and brushes for a little budding artist! (You can lay the brushes horizontal across the center). Love the bright color options as well!
I too had a broken bin when it arrived. Customer service was wonderful and I explained the problem of the lid falling in and breaking the bin. I asked them to put shipping instructions to wrap the wooden lid so it could not fall into the bin during shipping. Then after receiving The replacement I resolved the loose wooden lid situation by spreading some clear silicone on the under lip of the lid. I also spread a bit of Vaseline on the top edge of the bin so the silicone wouldn't stick. I placed the lid with the still gooey silicone down firmly on the bin to make a "mold" of the top rim. Remove the wooden lid and allow to firm up and set (I left mine overnight.) Wipe off the Vaseline. Now you have a bin with a silicone seal that stays in place is not visible and provides an air tight seal. The bin Is absolutely beautiful. I smile every time I walk into the kitchen.

I absolutely love this jar (so much so that I bought two of the canisters as well). The detail is intricate and delicate all at the same time! It is stunning in my kitchen. True that it is not airtight, but I use it as a treat jar for my pup. I use the canisters for coffee pods. I have had this jar for over a year, and felt the need to comment because of all of the reviews relating to be it fragile. I have had the exact opposite experience. It is incredibly sturdy and has been banged around a lot.

A beautiful addition to any kitchen
I received this bread bin as a gift from a close friend. It is large enough to hold a large round loaf of sourdough bread. The lid is too beautiful to use as a cutting board so I treated the wood with an oil to protect its surface. For a tighter fit I placed a long (14") piece of scrunched up plastic wrap between the lid and the rim of the jar to creat a barrier. If placed carefully, the plastic wrap can not be seen. This makes a fabulous vase for fresh flowers too. Far too pretty to just use as a storage vessel for bread.
What a cute towel I purchased for my sister as a wedding gift. I am having their name embroidered on the back of the car and the date of the wedding on the licence plate. I will post pictures when I get the towel back!

Can't really read 'Just Married'
Beautiful quality and a quirky gift (I bought it for a workmate getting married), but the frustrating thing is on my towel I can't really read the 'Just Married' text, the stitching seems a little too far apart or something!

Well made keepsake
Looks handmade, much prettier than in picture! I used it for gift wrap for a wedding shower gift with coordinating wide satin ribbon....was very sweet and unique.
I just ordered 2 more for upcoming weddings......
I really wish Anthro would quit selling the cutest aprons ever! I already have 5 and every time I shop Anthro, I see another one I love. I am at the point now, that I have to skip the aprons altogether because I can't resist buying them. This is the last one, I promise...

Comfy & Hungry
I saw this apron on my favorite TV show, "Young & Hungry", and I thought it was cute. I bought it and when I put it on, it was so comfortable. I love it so much.
I bought the oven mitt and pot holder as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law who just re-did her kitchen in pale yellow. I'm adding in some hand knit dish clothes to sweeten the pot.
They are well made, great quality, and good price point. I think she'll love them - I would :)

Nice Pot Holder!
I was plesantly surprised by the quality of this pot holder. The fabric is thick and provides good heat protection. It is a nice set with the Pot Hodler and Apron, which I have those as well. I especially like the trim fabric that matches the apron. High quality! I hate to get it dirty!!

I love my potholders! The colors coordinate and look beautiful in my kitchen. They fit very well and work great! I am very happy with my purchase!
I love my pot holders with pockets! They coordinate very well with my kitchen and are nicely padded. I'm very happy I purchased a set to go with the sewing basket oven mitts. They make my kitchen happy!

Great Quality Pot Holder
I was quite pleased with the Pot Holder that I recently purchased. The quality is nice and the facbric is thick. I like the details - I have all of the matching pieces to include the Oven Mit and the Apron. They look nice together and provide an old school feeling in the kitchen.

Functional and beautiful
Bought this to match the apron, and I'm very glad I did- high quality and thick enough that you barely feel heat when taking something out of the oven
