Gloves, cars and a burgeoning mid-life crisis - Part 3
Yes, it's painful it's so beautiful. And nothing works better with red than black. In honour of this spectacular Karmann Ghia, I've pulled out all the stops.
Let me at it with black button leather gloves that take so long to put on the evening is over before it's begun. These gloves came from my mother's friend so I believe they're something in the vicinity of 40 years old. Quite beautiful and totally impractical for today's woman in l'age, but I love them all the same.
Kid leather is the perfect weight for a chilly spring. Coverage without insulation is what we're after. I believe this is a rainy Sunday country lunch combo, that is car and gloves (and faux Chanel bag to boot).
Next up, the indomitable combination of practicality and style.
