Honore de Balzac once said: „Woman is the most charming creature, who changes her heart as easily as she does her gloves.”
There is something rather special in gloves. We often carry handbags, and wear shoes, belts and even hats, but gloves…not so much. Gloves had a huge role in fashion and in development of man kind, but they have always been a bit special. Firstly worn for protection in cold winter days, later they developed into a status symbol. I would give anything to live in the days when it was perfectly normal to wear gloves to the theatre, parties, dinners…even just walking around town. So these days cold weather is the perfect excuse to let my glove collection do all the talking! These black and red leather gloves are the first pair of gloves I have ever bought…they protect my hands of course, but with them I feel elegant, special and a bit devilish all at the same time :).
Today – an homage to one of my favourite movies – The Rocky Horror Picture Show. If some crazy scientist would approach me with an idea of time travelling, I would tell him without any hesitation: „Take me to the 70s, pretty please!!“ All that over-the-top glam, outfits, men and women in satin, jewelry and make up – I absolutely love it! Rocky Horror is a true example of mid-70s glam. But behind all the make-up, platforms, and cross-dressing outfits, are extraordinary music performances, which are still amazing as they were almost 40 years ago!
