Fingerless gloves? This Diva doesn't get it



Fingerlessgloves At the end of a long day, I happened upon an earnest PR pitch in my inbox for what was billed as the must-have accessory of the season:

Fingerless gloves.

What, you haven't bought any yet? Me neither.

I just got back from a chilly but awesome weekend trip to New York City. My thin-skinned Florida self was oh-so-grateful for fully fingered gloves. In 40-degree weather, I didn't want a single extremity left to the elements. (And yes, I got to wear sweaters. Finally.)

Rather than noting the homeless vibe of fingerless gloves, the PR pitch highlights their functionality, namely that they leave fingers free to text. Because God forbid the cold stop anyone from feverishly punching out cell phone messages for a single second.

I'll stick with full-finger gloves this winter. How 'bout you?
