michael meets medieval

inspiration hit today while holding some chainmail we’re using for a project at work. i loved the combination of gold and silver links that my coworkers put together, and the cool, slightly heavy drape of it over my hand was seriously seductive.

and that’s when i saw them: fingerless chainmail gloves! with a loose sleeveless blouse cinched by a high-waisted miniskirt, a multistrand necklace, and some ankle boots?!? add a bit of a fauxhawky pompadour and friday night never looked so good. clearly, i thought, there must be somebody out there that makes these things. so i did a little online shopping. lots of options out there, but most a little too king arthurey for my taste. this number by toby jones jewellery, however, has just the sort of weight and transparent feel i was looking for:

looks like toby’s site is still in the works, but in the meantime you can find the gloves (and other temptations like this ) at this fantastic culture/arts/fashion/et al site. wishing you all a little shine and sass over the long weekend!
