I came across this photo of my friend Ginger Kessinger the other day and couldn’t help but ask to use it on this blog! Isn’t this a precious picture? I *think* she is the little girl wearing gloves and she mentioned in some comments how much the accessory is missing in today’s fashion. Boy, do I agree! I’m hoping gloves make a comeback, along with everything else vintage.
I did some e-shopping today and came up with a round-up of some PRETTY sweet vintage gloves. Why buy new when you can avoid it? I’ve bought gloves at a few different yard sales over the year, too — keep your eyes peeled at sales and auctions especially if you have tiny wrists and hands. Vintage is small — so small people do often rule in this circumstance.
