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.

    PLEASE! Say you are not cleaning house wearing opera gloves ~ like those rubber gloves used for scrubbing! Your caption made me wonder with dismay for a minute.
