Your shopping list
Immediately let go of any you’re not in love with, pop these in the REHOME bag.
Any that are cracking, peeling or weathered in appearance can go into the REFUSE bag.
If any seams are split and you feel are repairable, then put them into your REPAIR bag.
Return those you're keeping to their home in your closet.
Gloves are one of the most overlooked accessories here in Oz, especially in Queensland, where we have so few digit-numbing days, however, they are a chic accessory to utilise in the cooler months. You will often see the best-dressed women at the races sporting a pair of gloves, most commonly the low scoop variety.
A well-fitted pair of leather (or good looking faux leather) gloves in a neutral colour – black, stone, navy, burgundy - is a marvellous starting point.
Fingerless lace gloves have not been all that common since Madonna was a virgin and not just ‘like one’, so we can probably let this style go… or pop them in a fancy dress costume bag?
Elbow length satin style gloves can channel old-school Hollywood glamour for a winter ball, gala or formal wedding.
FOLLOW UP ACTION REQUIRED:
It’s the right time here in the southern hemisphere to be buying gloves! If you haven’t got a pair, take a browse!
Let go of those that no longer serve and tend to any repairs.
