Well my partner may not have won an all-expense shopping trip to NYC but when she gets my apron and accessories I hope she feel like a million bucks! I'd love to hear what you think about my creation.....

Well I finished my apron for the Flirty Apron swap just in the nick of time. If you are not familiar with the swap, let me tell you about it. The theme this time was "My Fantasy Vacation". Each person that was in the swap told about where their fantasy vacation would be and a little bit about the vacation. The host of the swap then assigned partners to everyone. We were to make our partner an apron that best represented their fantasy vacation. Sounds like fun, hugh? My partner was the host of the apron swap. I felt a great deal of pressure. I have seen some of my partners work on Apronista, and I did not want to disappoint her. Her vacation spot was an all-expense shopping trip to New York City...taxis, high heels, coach bags, a luxury hotel suite and a makeover. Well I found some material that had a theme of a shopping spree and a day at the spa. I thought this would work out well.
I had to add some glam to the apron, so I found some rhinestone buttons to attach the neckties with. I also made a small ruffle with some pink chiffon that had small tiny flowers. I think the pearls and the choker necklace add a nice touch to the whole glam look!
' I used both fabrics on the purse and lined it in the polka dot print. The handles were the perfect complement to the purse, with the large black balls.
I added swarovski crystals to the black and pink polka dots and to the main part of the purse. I think I mentioned she wanted glam?
