Review: TULLE

If you have not seen or heard of TULLE then you are in for a very special treat because I recently discovered TULLE and this line of apparel and accessories is just spectacular! The first time I visited the TULLE website I spent about a 1/2 hour just browsing through the marvelous selection of really enticing chic styles of clothing and it was just one darling item after another. It is with great pleasure that I include TULLE in my Holiday Glamour & 2010 Holiday Gift Giving Guide and show you a few of the most glorious new items available at TULLE right now for Winter. Let me introduce this exceptional company to you:

The very generous folks at TULLE sent me four stunning items to review that came from their New 2010 Fall Collection. I had seen the items online and honestly when they arrived they were even more amazing when I saw them laying before me. I am so impressed with the delightful design of each item, each one demonstrating so much attention to detail in every aspect of its styling. These are pieces of clothing that seriously stand out from anything you typically see, they are no ordinary articles of clothing, they are most definitely extraordinary classy designs that will capture the attention of those around you. So without further ado here they are!

Double Breasted Sailor Button Coat
Price: $103


Live your life to the fullest and be fashionable too in this classic Double Breasted Sailor Button Coat. It features 3 pockets at the front. Wool Blended.

Style = J7570
Fabric = wool/viscose
Size = XS - XL

MY THOUGHTS: I received this dynamic coat in the gorgeous Eggplant Color and it is also available in Burnt Sienna, Tea Stain and Army Green as well. I have never owned a coat in this color so it is going to be so enjoyable for me to incorporate this new item into my wardrobe to spice it up and bring my outfits to a whole new life! Temperature wise it has been pretty warm here still so I have not had a chance to actually show off this divine coat around town on me, but I have been trying it on over and over again gazing at myself in front of the mirror imaging all the places I will wear it to!

I want to comment on how nicely made it is. Sometimes you see items online and they look so lovely and then when you receive them you are disappointed in the quality and workmanship. But not is the case with this coat. It is really well constructed, and all the elements to its design are perfectly orchestrated. I am really impressed with the level of excellence in how it is rendered and can clearly tell it will stand the test of time. That is important for me, as I enjoy wearing my clothes season after season, they become an extension of me.

This is the perfect coat to transition me from the crisp cool Fall days and nights into Winter. It has just the right amount of thickness to it that it will keep me warm and comfortable, yet it is not overly bulky that I have to worry about getting too hot in where I have to take it off and lug it around with me while I am shopping or out and about. It has so much distinctive embellishments to its design that really makes this a captivating coat and so unique from what most people are adorned in. I can't wait to pair it with all kinds of clothes that I currently have in my closet. I can see myself wearing this with jeans and all kinds of slacks as well as skirts and dresses. The classic military look has taken on a whole new look in this updated modern take on it, and it is sure to be my favorite go to coat this Fall and Winter Season!

Belted Coat w/ Zipper Pockets
Price: $115


Love the way you wear this coat. Mix it up with scarfs and hats this season for the ultimate chic cool weather look. This Vintage Wool Jacket features seamed detail and is finished with belt and zipper pockets. Wool Blended.

Style = J7571
Fabric = wool/viscose
Size = XS - XL

MY THOUGHTS: I received this classy coat in the striking Pacific Color. It is also available in Army Green, Heather Gray, Very Berry and Black. The Pacific Color is actually darker in reality than it appears in the picture, which is a positive for me. I think the color is fabulous, almost a Teal Color as opposed to a Light Blue which is what I thought it was going to be. I love the color and again this is a new color for me, unlike any coats I have owned before, so it is going to be such a pleasure to fascinate those around me with this hot little number!

Again, I want to comment on the meticulous manner with which the coat has been manufactured. There are a lot of elements in its design, the belt, the zippered pockets, the fitted lines to its style, and they are all perfectly constructed. I would have expected a coat of this caliber, a fine couture coat, to be priced double at the very least what this one currently sells for, that is how excellent this coat is when you have it in front of you. Seeing it online just does not do it the justice it deserves.

I think a belted coat gives you that polished, classy, professional look. The belted style makes you look sleek and slender and pulled together, like a woman who has it all. That gives you confidence and a sense of empowerment and that is why I am so excited to share this coat with you all. Whether you are a career gal and need a euro chic sophisticated new coat for this Season or whether you are a busy Mom on the go, we all want to look our personal best, and this coat is your ticket to achieving that look for yourself.

Again, with Fall just beginning and our temperatures still pretty mild I have not actually worn the coat out of the house, but I have been modeling it around the house and I am just aching to wear it out and have some fun in! I think it will look terrific with all the jeans I love to wear but also with any other pair of slack or dress/skirts for that matter. It is an ageless timeless coat that can work with any kind of wardrobe you currently have. It is perfectionism at its finest in its style, design, and construction.

Cowl Neck w/ Ruched Sleeve Top
Price: $58


Rush me out the door in this cowl neck top featuring center seam detailing with ruched sleeves that will add texture and structure to any out fit. Pair with a pencil skirt or wide leg trousers for a fashion forward effect.

Style = E9328
Fabric = cotton/spandex
Size = XS - XL

MY THOUGHTS: I received this spectacular top in Black and it is also available in Charcoal. Who doesn't love a classy, sexy black top to add some spice and pizzazz to your wardrobe! This is the kind of top that will instantly reinvent an outfit and take it from Blah to Aaahhhh in a fun, flirty, alluring way! Whether you choose to pair it with a classic blazer or cardigan for a more professional look or wear it by itself and glam it up with some chunky chain necklaces for a dressier sexier look, this is sure to perform as a most versatile top in your wardrobe that you will find yourself reaching for over and over again!

What struck me at first was the super soft feel to the knitted material. It is a fine gauge, lightweight knit that just has that luxurious cozy texture that you want to drape over your skin! Because the necklace gracefully hangs midway down below your neck and the material is light and breezy this is the kind of top you can wear year round, even on the cooler spring and summer nights. Of course I couldn't wait to wear it and excitably show it to my friends and family, so I did take the liberty of testing it how it washed before I wore it. I turned it inside out and washed it in the machine using the delicate cycle and cold water and I line dried it overnight. By the next morning it was totally dry and it looked just as breathtaking as it did when it first arrived. I definitely passed my wash and wear test!

I wore this top with a cute pair of dark beige capris and come black wedge sandals and for me it was a real hit! It was super comfortable to wear and the style is so darn cute you can't help but feel feminine and elegant with it on, and I felt it just revamped my entire look. I chose to wear a silver bib style necklace with it and because the cowl neckline drapes low, it is the perfect top to also enjoy wearing those sparkly necklaces that really add some twinkle and spark to your aura.

I plan to wear this top all Fall and Winter Season as one of my key signature separates to create a lot of different outfits for myself. The texture will work with blazers, sweaters, vests and will be paired with jeans, slacks, and skirts. You can't help but want to grab this top because the detailing on the cuffs of the sleeves and the beautiful way the cowl neck falls against your chest is just so couture and chic that you won't want to stop finding new and different separates to wear it with.

Last but not least I received this ultra feminine cardigan!

Ruffle Cardigan
Price: $53


Everyone needs a good cardigan. This cardigan has a great cotton/rayon blend with short sleeves, finished with a ruffled lapel which gives it a soft feminine vibe perfect to pair over a camisole or even your favorite dress.

Style = E1350
Fabric = Cotton/Rayon
Size = XS - XL

MY THOUGHTS: I received this fun flirty sweater in Black and it is also available in the vibrant Emberglow Color which is shown in the pictures above. I used this color because the details show up better in the picture than it did with the black. I cannot count the number of times each season when I wear a black sweater. Black sweaters just seem to go with everything, whether casual or dressy and quite frankly, black sweaters can get kind of boring after a while, don't you agree? So why not pick up this very joyous ruffle cardigan that will change the way you think about a typical black sweater because it is far from ordinary and boring! It is enchanting and magical and brings a whole new meaning to a classic black cardigan.

I want to comment on the fine gauge of the knit. This is not a flimsy sweater by any means, but it is also not a heavier sweater in terms of thickness and weight. It is perfect for wearing anytime you want to add that feminine touch to your outfit. It is splendidly made, I really like the simplicity of the design and the flirty air that is has about it. I have already worn it a few times, with just a cute graphic tee underneath it and a pair of jeans. You can so easily wear this by day casually as well as dress it up with a sexy silk blouse underneath it and go out to hit the town! It is most versatile and another signature item you will want to go to wear over and over again.

That's it folks! As you have probably guessed by now, I am quite smitten with TULLE and the incredible line of clothes they offer. But do check out there adorable line of accessories too! Accessories are also a key way to bring new life to your existing wardrobe!
