Who Doesn’t Love A Great Pair Of Gloves?
I have two types of gloves that I keep around. Those that are actually functional for cold weather and keeping my fingers warm, and those that are purely ornamental. The latter group usually coordinates so well with some coat or other accessory that I’ll wear them when I know I won’t be exposed to the elements for too long.
That’s why theSimply Vera Vera Wang Ruched Long Gloves might be the best glove of the season. They come in purple, as shown at right, and the more utilitarian black in an easy to care for acrylic fabrication. And – are you ready for this? – they’re currently on sale for $16.50. Get thee to a Kohl’s store pronto! I’m telling you, for anybody who worries about sleeves on coats that are too short, just one pair of long gloves will solve all of your worries. Finally, if it’s a touch of whimsy and practicality that you seek, let me point you in the direction of Portolano’s Satin Cuff Leather Glove. But first let me wipe the bit of drool from my mouth. Are these not stunning? Love, love, love the wide pleated cuff that covers the wrist. Perfect for layering over a narrow sleeve on a jacket.
Portolano in general makes very high quality (read: Italian) gloves in an unbelievable array of colors and lengths. Their prices are very reasonable, too, for their basics. Even this pair is *just* $150, which is admittedly steep, but compared to many designer brands where one is just paying for the name on the tag, it’s a good investment.
So whether you spend $7 or $70 or $170, let gloves be a fun accessory to your cold weather wardrobe. And if you live in a warmer environment, use something like the lace pair to spiff up an otherwise average outfit. Your fingers will thank you.Any purchase made at a Goodwill Retail Store or on ebay.com funds Goodwill’s mission of training and employment programs for people with disadvantages or disabilities.
