Decadently Soft & Delicate

I’m a huge fan of Murdoch Mysteries, a TV detective series set in turn-of-the-century Toronto. But I don’t just tune in for the stories…the ladies costumes are nothing short of amazing! Always so delicate, feminine, and intricate.

These gloves were inspired by a time when women gathered in full attire for afternoon tea, but designed for 2017. I wear mine with jeans and a sweater while I drink coffee and write patterns at my local Starbucks!
