According to the fashion laws of the sixties gloves were worn for evening and social occasions.
This six year old remembers her wearing them to church. I'm sure she wore them to other places that I didn't go.
I played dress up with them a couple of times, but I didn't keep them on for very long. That lacy crap irritated the heck out of my arms. Made me itch. I want to scratch just thinking about it.
I think the cedar chest is the best place for them.
