Fall Favorites!

The Santa Ana winds have overtaken Southern California, and it's warmer than usual here for the middle of November. Nonetheless, the fall styles beckon me and I've put together another assemblage of beauties you might adore!

1 - I've long loved the envelope clutch, as it goes from day to night and carries all of the essentials (phone, lipgloss, business cards, car keys). This one here is the Eaton clutch from Madewell. I especially love the gold bar detail and the mix of black and brown leather.

2 - The black blazer never, ever, ever goes out of style. Perfect over jeans or a dress and, in Los Angeles in particular, fantastic over a little fitted tee shirt, paired with a loose scarf, as the evenings get chillier. The Reveur Blazer from Anthropologie is available in black and brown - I'd suggest buying both!

3 - The queen of incredible nail colors, OPI offers everything from azure blues to sparkling metallics. They're my go-to nail polish and their gel neutrals not only last for weeks and weeks, but they're beautiful and minimal and complement absolutely everything.

4 - Tula Design's Trillion cut diamond ring, shown in 14K yellow gold, is available as a custom ring in whatever you desire - rose, white, or yellow - and in any size you need. Because of its prong setting, it's easy to stack with other skinny, petite rings, but also looks pretty wonderful on its own!

Four Fall Favorites

Without question, fashion influences my aesthetic, my style, and what I'm creating in the studio. So, I've decided to put together an assemblage of beautiful bits - something which may become a regular Tula Design post - bringing some of my favorite finds in fashion and hairstyles alongside a Tula piece or two!

I'm loving this delicious, oversize drapey cardigan sweater I spotted on, the tousled, loose coiffure looks perfect on every woman, and this incredible, feminine blouse from Michael Kors is just the right amount of sexy for day and night. My rose gold monogrammed Signet ring (also available in yellow or white gold) evokes the right balance of understated and heirloom-worthy - a bit of private school prep meeting 21st century sophistication. I can imagine it working wonderfully with each of these classic styles, modernized and effortlessly brilliant.
