It’s the weekend that the retail industry baits its breath for. It’s the typically American tradition that has somehow seeped into the realms of the UK retail trade whereby the whole country is on shopping standby for the weekend whilst eager shoppers take advantage of the one-weekend-only sales. I was one of said shoppers, I’m not ashamed to admit. Whilst my shopping excursion was a whistle-stop tour of “the main part” of Covent Garden (I only went into one shop… Yay for my non-resistance!) I did however spend a rather inordinate amount of money on a pair of gloves.
It has to be said though, that I have had my eye on these supple beauties from Kurt Geiger for a while now. Three months to be exact. And whilst some may say that spending £60 on a pair of gloves is ludicrous, I on the other hand, wave two fingers (two leather-clad fingers, might I add) up in the air and declare an investment has been made. Yes, they were £60. But they would have been £80, thanks to the eager sales assistants shoving 25% discount vouchers in everyone’s faces upon entering the shop.
Woollen gloves never go out of style. Neither do leather gloves. Combined, KG are onto something. Expensive or not, they will go with anything and get better with age. And for the record, I wore them all the way home and my hands were not even the slightest hint of chilly. I win.
