Outside of the practicality of wearing leather gloves when driving a Vespa in San Francisco, this item has been on my fall wish list for some time now. I know some of you may balk at these...leather gloves are not for everyone. I'll admit, last winter I went out to a bar with a friend who wore turquoise leather gloves and yes, I balked. But this year is a different story - I am in love with anything and everything leather, including leather gloves. I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair...and I think I found them with these 3.1 Phillip Lim Jeweled ones. The leather shouts rock and roll chic, but the jewels (which are also leather) add femininity so you don't have to feel too hardcore rocker chick - with these gloves, you're just in style.
