|New Gloves! Cute and bargainous.|
Actually, on EBay, you do get a bit of a mixed search when you put in white lace gloves. It's a list of three distinct types:
-Kawaii/indie/vintage interest (sounds about right);
-Wedding or First Holy Communion (been there, done that, too expensive);
-Fetishwear (WTF. Not the thing to shop for on your lunchbreak, clicked on what I thought was a nice pair- the shop kept mentioning them coming in an 'unmarked envelope' to hide my shame. Erk. Evidently I am a secret pervert).
In the end, after searching through endless Hong Kong wedding wholesales and kinky bits, I found a little gem of an eBay shop Fairie Tayls Creations. Handmade alternative stuff, here in the UK and at reasonable prices too! My gloves came in at £3.95 with free P&P- bearing in mind they won't be everyday wear, this is the best of both worlds: unique style, low cost. Their dispatch is also extremely swift (as in order one day, get 'em- neatly packaged- the next). Here are some other items from Fairie Tayls that I am sorely tempted by...click on the pic to visit the shop:
I'm planning on taking my gloves out on some delicate, feminine jaunts- perhaps nommage the secret tea rooms or The Chap Olympiad. One of those rare occasions when I dress tastefully in pastels and frills. Here are some 'hand model' shots. Check out my distinctly un-delicate nail art, what can I say, I'm from Norf Lahndan innit:
