Hands down one of the coolest elements of being a vintage fashion and lifestyle blogger is that you just never know what exciting opportunity is going to come your way out of the blue next.
Case in point, last year I was contacted by a staff member from the popular UK sewing magazine Make It Today, who had discovered my blog via some of my posts pertaining to wearing vintage gloves and was keen to get my impute on the topic of evening gloves and, in particular, their lasting appeal.
As posts such as My top tips for glove etiquette and wearing vintage gloves from January 2015, as well as scores of my own outfits over the years, attest to, I'm wild about gloves and will happily talk about this topic 'til the cows come home, so it was an immense pleasure and honour alike to get to do so in the scope of a magazine article.
Below are jpeg images, supplied by Make It Today, of the magazine's cover and the article that I contributed some of my thoughts to for their 9th issue. They're not the highest resolution images, but I think that they give the gist of things nicely all the same.
I've been keen to share about this fun article ever since I was tapped to take part in it, however I didn't receive these images until quite recently (and hadn't yet received a physical copy of the magazine either, though I'm happy to say that I since have), so I wasn't able to do so in a way that would include such.
Another big reason why I'm keen to share about Make It Today here is that they (awesomely!) interviewed me again a little earlier this summer regarding some of my thoughts on the care, washing, and maintenance of vintage garments, which will appear in a forthcoming edition of their wonderful publication.
I plan to share about that here, too, once that edition of the magazine goes live, but in the meantime, as I know that a lot of you are big fans of wearing vintage and/or evening style gloves as well, I wanted to post now about this really really lovely opportunity that I had.
Year after year, I get more questions pertaining to wearing vintage gloves (and hats) than almost any other specific old school garment, so if there's ever anything you'd like for me to try and answer on that front that I haven't covered here on my blog (or in this magazine article) before, please don't hesitate to shoot your queries(s) my way anytime.
Thank you very much to the fine folks at Make It Today magazine for involving me in not one, but two, editions of your terrific publication. I'm tickled pink and can hardly wait to see the finished second article!
