Crescendoe gloves give your hands a slim and lovely look…Leather-tailored of wonder fabric that wears longer and washes better.
I’m really not very nostalgic when it comes to fashion accessories of the past. I had enough of garter belts and stockings and little hats as a pre-teen to do me for a lifetime. But one thing I really wish I’d gotten in on was the wearing of dress gloves. I can remember wearing them as a very young child, but by the time I was 8 or so, the wearing of them had passed from being de rigueur to being just one more thing we didn’t want to fool with.
I look at the hands of many women in their 70s and older, and realize their hands look younger than mine. It has to be that they got much less sun exposure as teens and as young women. Those $4 gloves turned out to be a very good investment in skin care, and did a lot more good than do today’s $25 hand creams.
Happy first day of spring to you all!
