What Item of Clothing Can You Not Live Without?

There are many fashion bloggers out there that claim to have one item of clothing they CANNOT live without: Jimmy Choo shoes, colored tights, favorite J Crew sweater . . .

Well . . . if I had to choose ONE item that is a MUST HAVE in my closet it is . . .
$1 gloves. They come in many assorted colors, and are cheap enough to be disposable. $1 gloves can literally save your life in many circumstances:

1) Protect you from frostbite on those COLD Utah days when you don't have an ice scraper in the car and have to clean off the windshield.
2) Good to protect your rear from chafing when you don't have toilet paper with you and you are 10 miles from home -- on foot.
3) Perfect to catch vomit in WalMart. For example . . . your child has been throwing up all morning, but you have planned a grocery shopping trip to WalMart to buy your weekly supply of food. You really want to get those groceries and don't want to leave sick child at home. You decide to risk it. You take sick child with you and try to rush up and down the aisles before vomiting occurs again. You can tell he is feeling sick, so you grab some 7Up and saltines hoping that eating and drinking will help him get through the shopping trip. Suddenly you hear, "Mom! I'm going to . . ." You rush over with your glove-covered hands held out in a cup-like fashion. You catch the vomitous mess, and quickly look around for a place to dispose of it. Luckily you spot a trash can just feet away. You rush over, peel off the messy gloves, and voila, you continue your shopping spree!

$1 gloves are like a little miracle. They are stylish and always handy to have around!

So do the gloves also protect your hands from getting any germs which might be on the shopping cart? I like that you shop with the gloves on. :) Sorry about the throw up mess but I'm so glad you were prepared!! Maybe I should go and get some more $1 gloves. :)
