WallflowerVintage presents:

On with the gloves!

One of my favorite movie scenes is from "Gone With The Wind" Scarlett prepares for her meeting with Rhett and is desperate to make the right impression, after all she was a wealthy women, a southern belle. But that was before the war. She makes a gorgeous gown out of the velvet curtains (amazingly still intact after the devastation) and pulls on her beautiful gloves. When she arrives she is resistant to removing her gloves and Rhett notices this. The truth is revealed - her hands are work worn, her family is in ruins she appeals to him for help but was too proud to present herself any other way!
