Bizarro. But In A Good Way.

Recently I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of fingerless gloves. Yes, it’s spring but I still have visuals of pairing them with tanks, even during summer nights. I’ve entertained the thought of cutting my leather gloves, but re-considered in the event I actually need a pair of gloves when I go back east for the holidays. So instead, I decided to search online for a pair of cheapish leather (or faux) to DIY and make them into fingerless ones. I actually found a few choice pairs at Target for around $6 on clearance, and thought Score. Then I headed over to AA and while they don’t have leather fingerless gloves, I like their acrylic ones. So now it was between cutting up the Target gloves or going with the AA ones.  And then I found these babies via Nasty Gal Vintage.

They’re (unworn) vintage ’80s leather gloves with perforated details and a suede interior. Are you kidding me? I’ve been searching and searching, and all of a sudden I stumble upon these. It was as if the gods of the fingerless glove world were looking down on me and said this girl needs some serious help, and poof, these entered my life.

Of course, earlier yesterday I also bought this dress from Nasty Gal, on a separate order because the gloves weren’t online yet. Hate when that happens. This is the MinkPink Winona Zipper Dress and is totally early 90’s. Can’t wait to pair it with my Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties or my UO red combat boots.

On a separate note, I am still 0-3 when it comes to vintage online shopping. I had talked about this leather jacket a few weeks ago, and I ended up swimming in it. Down but not out.

Currently overplaying “Cheap and Cheerful” by The Kills.
