After several weeks of being on the prowl for these sought after gloves, I finally stumbled upon a pair at The Bay. I am not a regular at this store, but when I do pop in on a whim, I am always pleasantly surprised by their accessories section (FYI, The Bay locations at West Edmonton Mall, and Southgate Mall are the best!!). Of course, I found the most perfect black leather gloves with some detailing on the wrists and lined with soft, grey and white rabbit fur. I tried the right one on and it fit perfectly! So I thought 'YES!' mission accomplished. I bought the gloves and left the store feeling victorious.
A few days later, I woke up to a chilly weather forecast for the day so pulled out my new leather gloves, sprayed them with leather protector, and to make them "officially" mine, cut the tags off. Habitually, I put the right glove on first, 'aaahhh' I thought to myself, what a perfect fit! Then I proceeded to put the left glove on, and to my shocking surprise it did NOT fit. I was able to get the glove on, but couldn't bend my wrist or my fingers. WTF! Disappointingly, I had to wear my last season black suede gloves and asked my partner, RJ, to go through the garbage and pick out the tags as I had to make a trip back to the store to exchange them. I am happy to report, I am FINALLY wearing my black leather gloves lined with rabbit fur. For those of you who are too, on the hunt for the perfect winter accessory whether it be gloves, a scarf, or ear muffs, may your story also have a happy ending!
These are some of my most other wanted accessories for the winter season. Hope you like them!
