Pretty things are so important. This blog was originally named “The Importance of Pretty” because I truly believe there is something special in appreciating pretty things and embracing – or just even seeing – the beauty that surrounds us. Of course I changed the title of the blog to All Sorts of Pretty because it’s much shorter and easier to type, but I firmly believe in the importance of pretty.
This “Daily Dose of Pretty” is a new series I’m working on designed to make you stop and appreciate something beautiful every day. When I was in college and working on an art degree, my professors hated this idea. They thought “eye candy” was amateurish and all art should have some deep meaning or theory behind it. There should be suffering or an epiphany or something conceptual about the art. And most of it was ugly and didn’t speak to me. I love pretty things! I like things that make me smile or crazy jealous (in a good way) and make me stop thinking about whatever it was I was thinking about and just admire something beautiful.
Today’s Daily Dose of Pretty are these gloves from BHLDN. Sometimes I wish we still lived in a time where all the women wore pretty gloves like this to special occasions like weddings or brunch or to church. Wearing pretty dresses with petticoats underneath – how fun! What is more feminine or charming or unexpected in today’s world than a pair of delicate gloves?

Would you wear decorative gloves like this that serve little or no purpose for warmth, but instead just add a vintage and feminine touch to your look?
