no glove? no love.

White_gloves>> A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... (Sorry guys, couldn't resist, I just saw the final Star Wars last night.  And yes, you're free to call me a big dork if you want to.  I'm okay with that.  It's been accepted and I've moved on.) I was reading the March 2005 edition of Nylon... a magazine I adore (and you should too), and I came upon a wonderful photo editorial.  Not only was Miss ValerieCorset_belt_1 Corset_back Avdeyera (the model) wearing the droolworthy 40's-style ivory corset belt and dotted skirt from the Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Spring/Summer 2005 Fishnet_gloves_1 collection, but also the most adorable little hand-knotted nylon wrist gloves, as well.  Which have stolen my heart (for the day at least, or until something equally glamorous comes along).  They're very feminine, consummate 40's, and yet something about them is very time-transcending.  Perfect for adding a little bombshell bang to your outfit.  Oh, did I mention that their maker, La Crasia, sells these lovelies for $8 a pair, and they come in three lovely colorsGreen_gloves  (black, white, ivory)? 

While I'm gushing, I might as well continue... Miss Avdeyera also wears teal crochet driving gloves by Miss Crochet_driving_1 Dater, which are slightly more expensive at $48 a pair, but well worth it for all you leather-coveting ladies out there.  Unfortunately, it looks like the teal is no longer available, which trust me, I'm just as disappointed as the next girl -- teal/turquoise/blue-green is my favorite color.  But there's still some other great options available.  So pay homage to Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich, all those old bags... and get some compliments, too.

So yeah.  Couple of side notes -- if you prefer the fingerless glove look like I sometimes do, La Crasia has a couple of great options.  And as La Crasia doesn't have a shopping cart set up on their site, purchasing information can be found here.
