Mr. Selfridge style red leather gloves

I’ve been meaning to write about Mr. Selfridge since I fell for its costume dramarama charms on Sunday night. And I’m ashamed to admit that it was whilst browsing The Fail’s “Sidebar of Shame” that I was reminded to pull my finger out and do a post…

The Daily Mail reported that Debenhams has seen a 65% rise in the sale of red leather gloves since episode 1 of the ITV drama aired (which may mean that about 10 extra people have invested, but still). I can’t say I’m surprised anyway: the moment exuberant Mr. Selfridge, played by Jeremy Piven (you would, wouldn’t you?) bought sweet shop girl Agnes a red leather pair, my heart had a little skip.

And don’t even get me started on Ellen Love’s full length red and black dress…*faints*

So if you haven’t watched the first instalment, you’d better – and if it makes you long for red leather gloves, you know what to do….
