This is the Revolver glove, designed by Mila Hermanovski. Mila designed this fingerless glove because her two favorite accessories are rings and gloves, and she wanted to create a glove that would allow you to wear rings. I think it's very chic and made very well. The revolver glove is available in several materials, such as patent leather and black snake skin. They are available through her blog Brave New Frock. Please go check out her stuff; she is very talented! Also, look for our exclusive interview with Mila, where she talks to the Design Loft about Project Runway, LA Fashion Week, and home design.

We decided on a lovely white tree this year; it was the perfect choice. It really fits the color palette of the rest of our apartment, since I wanted to keep the color scheme monochromatic. I used gray, silver, and pearl-colored ornaments. Living in a loft is basically like decorating one large space.Our loft is decorated in a mid-century modern style, with classic infusion. Overall, we keep a minimalist standard as far as accessories and furniture. Take a look at some of our holiday decor .
One of my favorite ornaments that I bought is this charming polar bear. I got this at a shop in Mystic, Connecticut. I love how he looks like he is balancing on one of the tree branches. I try to make the animals look real, not just hang on the tree.
Our tree is only 4 1/2 feet tall, but we gave it extra height with this simple white end-table.
A glittered wreath on my large mirror, with a little bird nestled perfectly!
More birds on the tree! I love this adorable white porcelain bird. My mother bought us two of these.
On my table, I have a silver leaf platter filled with pine cones, and sprinkled with silver glittered balls.
On the coffee table I created a little scenery of snow, flocked trees, and this little twig rodent!
I found this amazing Pottery Barn SILVER-PLATED Santa; it retails for $125.00, and he weighs 20 pounds. I found him at Savers for $19.99. YES, this is a true story. How chic is that Santa? He is standing proud next to my silver ball tree that I made.
This is my mini vintage silver tinsel tree, decorated with light blue and silver balls of different sizes.
A great shot of the dining room table.
Lina folding chair. I might be picking this up; maybe after the holidays, but how chic? This comes from Design Within Reach. It's an Italian-made chair with an extremely durable steel frame. It can be used everyday, or tucked into a closet for storage when you don't need to use it. I think it would make a great accent chair, in an office or study.
