Apronizing America

20130913_145841What does “Apronizing America ” mean, exactly?

This is a common thing I am asked quite often.

I believe that Aprons are a fashion accessory. I believe they can and should be worn out like one would wear a scarf, a necklace or a necktie. Apron can spice up ANY wardrobe, make, female, child, or even a pet or a doll!

When not wearing an apron out, I feel like I am leaving something behind.

But if I do, you can be sure that whatever I AM wearing is something I created, whether that is a Fascinator, a dress I made, my earrings, you name it, there is something from my creations.

Mostly, I love to make fashionable aprons because I hear the stigma of what people think an Apron is and I am not just out to get America to WEAR an Apron, I am trying to change a whole MINDSET!!

An Apron is NOT just for the Kitchen anymore and my aprons are NOT your grandma’s aprons.

I want to show you by creating fabulous things, dresses to go under them, fascinators to help accessorize them, and of course, Aprons that are spicy alternatives to dress up anything you wear or not wear (if you so prefer) to help add flair, spice and fabulousness to your life!

I am also NOT like other apron makers I have seen out there. Most work from their fabric in stock and create based on tissue paper patterns. Some design their own patterns, but then it is a constant “Cookie- Cutter” repeat of the same apron, with different fabric/textile.

I start from a Fashion Designer base FIRST! Meaning, I design based on the specs you give me in a quote from my Fashion Request Form. I then take that information and design within those parameters and then send you the design to approve. From there, within TWO WEEKS, I create your fabulous design.

You can choose if you want a Custom Apron or a BeSpoke Apron. Custom means I can use the design pattern I created for you and use it for another request. BeSpoke means you are the only one wit that design and it cannot be used for anything else.

You don’t see that from other Apron Makers, for the most part. I am sure there are one or two who “might” do that, but it is rare.

I feel and think this way of thinking has the potential to do as I desire and to help Apronize America because America will see how unique and different my aprons are as well as my mentality about wearing and using them.

Do I make Domestic Aprons? Yes, with Flair & Fabulousness!

Do I make other things? Yes, as long as they are true to my brand, meaning they will go WITH other things I create.

The questions I get asked most? Do I love what I do?

Yes. You know that song “Living what I love and loving what I do…”? That is the epitome of how I feel everyday.

What’s Next for Trisha Trixie?

Apron Builder. My Online Apron Creation Technology. On Apron Builder YOU are the designer. I give you the base template and you create what YOU desire. Then it gets printed and sent to you to construct by either sewing or other alternatives like No Stick Glue, Fabric Bond Adhesive or who knows, maybe you want to staple yours together! That is all on YOU!

What if I don’t want to use Apron Builder? Good thing you still have me! Trisha Trixie Designs will  still be the Custom BeSpoke Apron Maker and myself and my seamstresses will be available to be of service to you!

So, you see…there is no reason NOT to wear an apron and I have even made it simple and easy for you to do.

Now, Let’s Apronize America together!

Try It Tuesday~Tye Dye Today

When I first started hearing about Tie Dye being back in fashion I must admit I cringed a little. Let me explain myself, for those who are heating up and saying “how could you not like it!” And for those agreeing, let’s take a step back and consider a few things.

Tie Dye today is not the same as it was in the 70’s. I can back that up too. I started out looking and looking with a very biased mind and eye. I was sure that today’s Tie Dye was the same as it used to be. I was sure of it. THEN, I stumbled upon these:

Now I do have to admit that the skirt alone would  not be up to par but they attached it to a nice outfit. Still not convinced?

Check out these then:

This one has a nice vibrant coloring to it which makes it more appealing. It is also not a t-shirt or shorts. The colors do not blur together in a rather neutral shade either.

Stay with me now, I have more. I am determined that you can enjoy Tie Dye as much as I’m learning to.

 
With a front and back view this is encouraging
yet I am not a fan of the sheer skirting attached
to the back of it. I personally feel that it takes 
away from the “elegance” of the dress. I must 
admit though, the shoes caught my eye first!
And it gets even better. This one has elegance and class. I might consider this dress “dance worthy”.
And here’s one you could actually wear to a nice function or even to work at the office! 
I have to add that it does have the swirl of the older Tie Dye but it seems “classier” here.
.
And speaking of the office….
For those with a more casual style, there are a few for you as well.
                                                   

                                                      
                                                              
As a final coo I add this one last photo. 
While I wouldn’t go for the shade shown here, it does tantalize the mind and 
tempt one to try it on other hosiery. Maybe Tie Dye white tights/hose?

These are not necessarily Tie to Dye for but they do put a new perspective on an old fashion idea.
I hope you find this new old fashion interesting enough to go out and “try it”. Maybe by next Tuesday?
If you do choose to, be sure to come back and share your experience with us and some photos too.

Spectacular Sunday~Asian Beauty

There is an enchanting beauty to the Asian dress. I do not know whether it is the shimmer and sheen of their fabrics, the cuts and lines of their items or the vibrancy in their design. What I do know is that their fashions hold an ethereal attraction to me. I am enthralled with it. I look upon their dresses and other clothing items and I feel as if I have been transformed and taken away to another place and time. Allow me to show you a few of their intriguing designs.

Most of these are a style called Cheongsam and come in a variety of colors.
Let’s start with red. Do you recall from last week’s “Try It Tuesday” post which reds are cool and which are warm? Did you “try it”?

What about you? Is your color blue?

Now we take a look at the yellows, which were very difficult to find. It seems yellow is a less common color.

Shall we move forward to green?
And then there’s orange. You have to be careful here. Fashion shades blur at times; reds & oranges walk a fine line on a thin tightrope.
Now, purple. Shades of purple.
Pink shades are lovely. From bold to pastel.
Now on to the lovely black backgrounds.
And we finish with the white backgrounds.
As you can see, it does not matter which color or shade you choose, 
this particular style is amazingly beautiful no matter what. 
What is your favorite fashion/style?

Spectacular Sunday~Connect The Dots

Polka dots have long been a favored pattern. You need to be careful though as they can make a person look larger that they are. Another thing to be watchful for is  the size and quantity of the polka dot pattern. Too many, too small can overwhelm your onlookers.

When wearing polka dots keep in mind what the appearance of your ensemble does for your body and your onlookers. You don’t want your look to be too busy and you definitely don’t want it to “enlarge” your body shape.
