Fits Like A Glove

Rock revival is a common theme on the runways, most recently seen in shows from Nina Ricci to Burberry. However, achieving the rocker look doesn't have to be all about shredded concert tees and metal accents. With the tragic death of Michael Jackson dominating the headlines as of late, what better way to pay tribute to the King of Pop than channeling his signature one glove look with Alexander McQueen's Faithful Leather Glove Clutch.

What You'll Need:
Large flap clutch
Fingerless glove (can be cut)
Snap button
Needle
Thread

First, sew one side of the snap button on the palm of the glove. Center the glove on the clutch for placement. It should rest just over the flap enclosure where you comfortably hold the bag. Make a mark where the snap meets the bag, then sew the other side of the snap button to the clutch. Now you have a removable glove built into your bag! This will come in handy if you unexpectedly find yourself in a street race or if, like me, your appendages are always abnormally cold.
