Women Should be Carefully Gloves 
to follow the French Etiquette

Until the 60's French Women would never go out side of their house without wearing gloves. 
Day gloves were light white or beige and made of cotton or nylon. 
To go to the city or to the Church or in the evening at the opera, ladies were putting on gloves in any occasion. 
Gloves would never be removed in public without being provocative and feeling naked without them !
Nowadays gloves are a fantastic Fashion Accessory.

Please find more handmade retro French cotton lace gloves in my SophieLadyDeParis Shop :
