Winter gloves


The queen of England loves to wear them and with good reason. Gloves protect our hands from the elements, giving them the feeling of being on a perpetual Summer vacation.

The best place to buy gloves is a small store in downtown Lisbon called Luvaria Ulisses. It has, since 1925, offered a large selection of gloves, so we can always find a pair that is perfect for us. Every time we leave the store, wearing new, elegant gloves we find Winter more appealing.

Luvaria Ulisses is located on Rua do Carmo, 87-A, tel. 213420295, email:

  1. So love this shop, its a lovely throw back to the last century, in 1925 it would be just place for any Portuguese roaring twenties flappers to buy their evening gloves. You place your elbow on a little round leather cushion, you can catch a glimpse of it in the photo, your hand is held up while the assistant smooths on leather gloves in your size. Need a little stretch on the fingers they have a delightful little tool spreader to do the job, perfect!
    But I so hate it when Her Britannic Majesty is referred to as the Queen of England, there is not such person. Her complete title In English: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas Queen, Defender of the Faith
    In Latin: Elizabeth II, Dei Gratia Magnae Britanniae, Hiberniae et terrarum transmarinarum quae in ditione sunt Britannica Regina, Fidei Defensor. So now you know.

  2. So beautiful and well written! I love reading your blog. Continua o bom trabalho 😉 beijinhos de Canada
