One thing I really want - gloves!

God, I now know why private house sales can be a huge pain in the ass, especially when you try to buy from somebody (supposedly a friend) you know. We just came back from an unsuccessful negotiation of a house sale whose house belongs to somebody who works at the same company as I (it's a big company). I really thought we'd have a deal 'cause she said we were friends and the price would be negotiable. But let's just she's a effin greedy bitch. And the whole thing gave me a HUGE headache, literally. So I went to the mall on the way back to get a Blizzard to appease myself. And I wanted to look for long gloves and arm warmers. I'm so glad they are huge this season. This is one trend that I'm excited. They are no longer just a necessary accessory to keep you warm. They decidedly bring a grown-up, elegant, lady-like aesthetic to your wardrobe, and instantly elevate the look and mood of any outfit. Variable lengths are all great, but I particularly like the long ones. I want a pair in leather (I don't know if I'll be bold enough to go patent on these) and a pair in cashmere or wool.
