VINTAGE VIXEN: Good Glove Hunting

Vintage gloves are a perfect addition to the fall wardrobe we've been building over these past few weeks… Both practical and fashionable, you can't go wrong with gloves.

Everyone has seen the beautiful Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 ads all over with Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson and Christy Turlington. Look at their arms… gloves! I love sheer nylon gloves, leather gloves, short gloves, long gloves, you name it! There are tons of gloves on Etsy and Ebay, as well as in your neighborhood vintage haunt (I imagine). Vintage gloves are available across all price points, so there's no excuse to buy new. I've found the details and stitching on vintage gloves are so much more luxe than new gloves. The attention to detail is so nice. The glove patterns were more complicated in previous decades and therefore the gloves slide on with
a smoother fit. Here are a few of my favorite picks:

Luxurios Vintage 50s long Opera real kid dark navy blue gloves.Size 7. Made in Western Germany. Price: $42.00.

Navy leather is my newest obsession. I love these gloves in such a mysterious midnight blue color.

Collection of Vintage Leather Gloves Opera Tea 6 1/2. Price: $15.00.

Deal city!! 6 1/2 is kind of a small hand size, so make sure you pay attention to the measurements given in these listings if you can't try before you buy, but wowza what a deal! Look at this great lot of gloves for only $15.00!

Vintage Leather Gloves. Price: $15.00.


Vintage Miss Aris black leather
gloves. Price: $20.00.

Scalloped edges are so nice!


Sheer Navy Scalloped Gloves. Price: $4.00.

What a bargain! I have some almost just like this and wear them all the time!

She Seemed French In White.. Vintage White Deco French Seam Swirl Leather Gloves. Price: $30.00.

These Art Deco gloves are gorgeous!!

And here are my favorite vintage glove finds from my closet:

Happy Glove hunting!
