Alexa from Pop Elegantiarum here. In honor of Meryl Streep's win at the Globes on Sunday (oy what a speech), I thought I'd give a shout-out to this fab Julia Child apron by ImaginAprons. If Julie and Julia left you inspired to get cracking on some French cooking, why not imitate Meryl as Julia in the process? The apron even has a handy loop for you to hook an included dish towel onto the apron (à la Meryl, in character, above). How very mise en abyme, as the French say.
What is especially cool is that the apron comes with a replica of the badge Julia’s husband designed for her French cooking school, L'Ecole des Trois Gourmandes. Julia wore the badge on her show for years. Happy butter, everyone!
