I was flipping through the new Vogue yesterday (the one with my girl Sarah Jessica on the cover!) and was reading up on fall trends. Vogue's fall trends aren't really in my economic realm (I won't be buying a new Marc Jacobs frock this season, to put it mildly) but one of them really caught my eye. Gloves. Gloves are back. Long or short, leather or cotton....ladylike gloves are this season's hot accessory. Hmmm....gloves, eh? I picture myself wearing a simple black dress, sweet little gloves my only ornamentation. I like it! But....Prada...Hermes....Louis Vuitton....as if!!! I immediately head to my favorite place: Ebay.
Bada-bing! There are tons of gloves to be had, and pretty inexpensive too! Cotton, velvet, suede, kidskin.....vintage, new, plain, embroidered. Gloves, gloves, gloves!!!
The only thing I'm wondering now....exactly how and wear do I wear these gloves? The models in Vogue all look terrific standing around making bored faces while sporting gloves. But....they're just standing around. Can I wear gloves out to have a drink? Do I have to take them off when I go inside? Can you hold a drink while wearing glove? Smoke a cigarette? (not that I smoke) I'm racking my brain trying to think of old movies....what did Doris Day do with her gloves??
I need glove etiquette!
