+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: November 26

I like elbow length gloves for two reasons: they keep me warm on drafty days and they have a chic, vintage feel to them.  If you’re looking to buy a pair, and want to save some money, try discount stores like TJ Maxx and vintage stores, as long as the lining is in good shape a vintage pair may be your best bet.  They also make great gifts for the fashionista who has everything.

    Belle – have you seen any smart touch gloves that aren't hideous? I would love to find a pair for a friend but all I ahve seen so far are not so pretty.

    Thanks –

    Ann – after searching through lots of pretty ugly smart touch gloves, I just bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas: https://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12772729&cp=2446815.1831968&parentPage=family

    They have a women's version, too: https://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12818037&cp=2446812.1831951&parentPage=family

    Also, not smart touch, but I bought these for my mom last year and she loved them, plus they're a great price today: https://www.wilsonsleather.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12988510&cp=2446812.1831951&parentPage=family

    For Ann:

    Re: smart-touch gloves. A few years ago, I found a nice-looking pair at LouLou. However, they may not sell them anymore. Last winter I went looking again for them there and didn't see the exact pair that I got. Maybe they will bring them back.

    i have been meaning to ask this:

    do you still do Friday discussions? If you have stopped, I will be the lone voice in the room and say that I miss them!
