it’s that time again — tulle is having a monster sale on selected goods. for prices that range from $5.99 to $8.99, you get a pretty good range of stuff this time around too. my picks are below, but you might wanna take a look-see yourself at everything they’ve got to offer — before sizes run out!



mixed cable sweater in teal

also in: black, crimson
original price: $78
tulle’s day price: $6.99

why: i don’t know about you people in other states, but here in chicago it’s been just about the coldest october in recent memory, and my extensive collection of fine gauge cardigans, while insanely cute, just isn’t going to cut it. i need me some cable knit, and i need it NOW. bonus points for being cute and coming in nice bright colors.



baby quilted skirt in crimson

also in: black
original price: $63
tulle’s day price: $6.99

why: let me tell you a story. once upon a time, cold weather was my nemesis. i refused to go anywhere without cladding my legs in chain mail pants denim or corduroy or 15 pairs of heavy duty tights. then, i discovered how to wear skirts in cold weather. and lo, the heavens burst open and a chorus of angels sang, etc. this skirt, being quilted, is perfect for cold weather, because it’s heavy enough to withstand sudden gusts of icy chicago wind without exposing any ladybits. and i don’t know about you, but anything that prevents frosted ladybits is alright by me.


wool plaid shawl collar coat in graphite/black

also in: lavender/ink
original price: $110
tulle’s day price: $8.99

why: in my head i have this entry planned called “i don’t think so, tim: how to wear plaid without looking like al borland.” and it is pretty awesome, and this jacket would be on my list. it does everything right: the cut is slimming, the wide collar adds some interest, and the colors don’t scream LUMBERJACK. winner.


canvas sherpa vest in graphite

also in: evergreen
original price: $78
tulle’s day price: $6.99

why: okay, so the styling on the tulle site isn’t so hot. but bear with me here — couldn’t you just imagine this over a slim turtleneck dress, tights and riding boots? so very fresh-from-the-ski-lodge chic, no?
