New Orleans, Louisiana.
In the humid months (which is most of them) Southerners kick up the air conditioning, resulting in serious indoor chills at work. Garden District Needlework’s Julia Houston to the rescue! These charming silk mohair wristlets keep cold air off tender hands and wrists while weighing almost nothing and leaving the fingers free to fly along the keyboard.
