Touch and Go (Winter Gloves + Mobiles)…

Dear readers,

It has been snowing heavily on and off, for a few weeks now.  And I have come to the realisation that certain ways of keeping warm in Vancouver will not ‘fly’, here in Ottawa.  The good news is that the Mackage ‘Bijou’ parka that I bought in 2009 is now being put to fabulous good use.
Bijou - MackageThe not so good news is that my fingers were not prepared for the onslaught of ice queen frost, as I call it.  This means that in Vancouver, I am able to tug off my glove, make a call/send a text on my iPhone, maybe browse the web a bit… all without feeling the loss of warmth acutely.  Not so, here.  But what’s a girl to do when she’s got a touchscreen phone?

Get some techie gloves to match, of course!

Test run in the snow…

After a particularly bitingly cold day taking the bus to an interview, I came back home and immediately ordered this pair of wool gloves from Echo Design (via Chapters here).  Boasting an 80% wool, 20% nylon mix, as well as a techno fabric pad on the thumbs and index fingers, these beauties will keep me warm and socially connected!

This is a pair that should be in every smartphone user’s cold weather wardrobe, period.  I am personally all about bows and ruffles, but Echo Design has a wide variety of styles for both women and men, so be sure to check them out.  🙂

Do any of you cold weather style experts have any survival tips to share?
