A tragic situation occurred a few weeks ago: I lost my gloves. And
one would think that I would just run into the nearest department store
and buy a new pair – easier said than done, my friends! While I’m
fashionably suffering donning my grey knit $1 bin gloves, I’m scanning
for stylish finger warmers that shockingly run $50 and up! Considering I just lost my previous pair of gloves, why would I want to invest in such an easy-to-lose item?!
I determined that the amount of money I could bear to part with
along with any future gloves I may own would averages around $40. And call me picky, but I want my gloves to be pretty. Pretty, and affordable.
Luckily as the spring lines are coming into the stores, there are actually some sales on winter accessories, gloves included. A pair of long suede gloves I found at Nordstrom, originally almost $80, I found on sale for half the price!
And I’ve always liked the ribbed gloves with the removable top for when
I’m digging for my keys or dialing a number on my cell phone – and I
came across a pair marked down from $25 to $12! Even a statement pair of blue leather gloves I found were marked down from $48 to $24.
