Vintage Gloves

There are so many lovely vintage accessories out there to wear, one of my favorites are vintage gloves.

These are a pair of Lilly Dache gauntlet gloves, Dache was known as an amazing hat maker, but she also did wonderful gloves. I own a few pairs, and I rarely wear them, instead, I prefer to display them.

Modern gloves are generally labeled in sizes XS to XL for ladies.
The perplexing part about vintage gloves is sizing, so I stumbled across a measurement chart, so you can ensure a perfect fit. I find that my glove size coincides with my shoe size, but it's not always a sure fire method.

So the next time you see a bundle of vintage gloves, take a look and try them on! They're not just for blustery winter days!
