Today I have on a black pencil skirt in what the Italians like to call lana fresca – which means cool wool. A nice pair of brown colored Nine West shoes with a faux alligator print. A high collar white, yellow and black Izod sweater with twinges of pale orange around the edges … no jacket and no stockings (and that decision I am definitely repenting for. My feet are freezing!)
The question is which pair of gloves should I wear? (don’t even begin to ask me why I want to wear gloves, if I have no jacket or stockings . . . leather gloves just make up part of what I consider the perfect winter outfit!)
my first choice it to try pick up the faux alligator print in the shoes and the brown tones with this 2 button length Italian leather glove and wool lining (new in the collection, I just had to have them!)
my alternative choice is a classic pair of gloves – a little longer than normal (they are a 4 button length) in an incredibly soft lambskin leather with a cosy warm cashmere lining. Long gloves always make me feel like I am going somewhere special … like dancing with Fred Astaire . . . or to work . . . ummm I think NOT.
of couse, I could always get a little wild and choose these colorful fur trimmed black leather gloves (which I picked up for a steal because there are on clearance now . . .) The orange colored fur wold pick up the orange colored streaks in the sweater.
