Opera length kid gloves
I am cleaning house.
I have two pairs of beautiful kid gloves, that actually fit, with tiny pearl buttons at the wrists. More amazing, I have worn both pairs for an event. The expression “fit like a glove” comes from gloves like these, which must be carefully eased onto the hand and are so snug that they are, quite literally, a second skin. The kid is so fine that my sense of touch is almost unencumbered by the glove. My only hesitation comes from the fear that I will get them dirty. This, I think, is why men started opening doors for women, to protect our gloves.
