Glove Makes the World Go Round
Way back in 1966, Deon Jackson sang that "Glove Makes the World Go Round". He was so right. Here we've put our gloves to good use to help prove his point.
You can wash your pink velvet bustier in your red rubber gloves.
You can take your daily calcium pill while wearing your beaded elbow-length gloves.
You can recreate the black and white Japanese monster movies of your youth, updating them with a splash of color.
You can zip up your black coat in your contrasting black and white polka dot gloves.
And why shouldn't you look fashionable while checking out your website?
The reason you always hated dusting is that you were wearing the wrong gloves, and you probably had the wrong color duster for your home, too. Problem solved. No more dust bunnies for you!
You can do your weight-bearing exercises (good for muscle tone and bone density) wearing gloves that match your weights. Be the envy of all your friends!
You can quit smoking the chic way (faux cigarette in the bakelite cigarette holder). Or, if you've been invited to a Breakfast at Tiffany's party, you're all set! (Oversized pearl ring by Meredith Katz for Made her Think.)
Grocery shopping holds more appeal when you're wearing your drawstring gloves.
If you didn't buy the pink tool set that was so popular several years ago, just wear a good glove. A little color goes a long way toward making home plumbing fun.
Gold embroidered opera gloves are just the thing for rummaging in the chilly fridge for some sake.
You can work on your hand-eye coordination.
Don't leave home without it - your black leather fringed gauntlet from Santa Fe, that is.
On the road again? Flag down a cab with black patent and gray leather Issey Miyake mittens.
