Gloves. To the wrist. To the elbow. Vintage, velvet, silk, even knit. They add drama to any outfit (which, as you may've figured out, I live for in an outfit). They add an old-world elegance that is trendy chic at the same time.
I came dangerously close the other day to adding an elbow-length pair of gold sparkly gloves to my collection (think Samantha Jones in "Sex and the City").

Apparently, I'm not the only one re-embracing this trend. Reed Krakoff, Versace (again), Vuitton - the list of designers using gloves to add flair to their work is too numerous to mention for the fall collections.

Heck, you can get a sexy pair of elbow-length velvet gloves anytime around prom season (I have two)or Halloween for that matter. I also am a big fan of glove finds at vintage stores (the stitching on those gloves is nothing short of impeccable).
Is this too "over the top" or am I simply again working with the fashion houses instead of against them?
