We’ve blogged about Nuala leather products in the past, but recently, Obsessive Beauty had a glimpse at some of the gorgeous work that Terry McInerney has been creating as of late, and her new line of leather accessories has us drooling. McInerney, a local mom in Santa Cruz, has been cutting and sewing together a new batch of inspired purses, messenger bags and more. What particularly caught our eye are her new wallets ($55)—with simple studded hardware and pockets that will fit your debit card, driver’s license and much more; they come in black or a chestnut color and are vastly unique. Another captivating item of McInerney’s are her leather cuffs, which have a vintage broach embedded on them ($42)—they offer a splash of rough femininity to any outfit. McInerney is also responsible for the recent brouhaha over a certain leather cuff watch that she recently created. A chunky leather band wraps around your wrist, with a classic watch face attached to it. It fits in perfectly with the sturdy, military-inspired looks that were featured on the runways. Perfect for fall. (These can also be custom-ordered.) Visit etsy.com/shop/nualaleather to make an inquiry, or find Nuala leather on Facebook.
Joining the leather rush is a new scarf just out by local designer Alexis Meschi of Lex Designs ($48), which is made of a cozy black fabric, with a piece of leather as the focal point of the scarf. It’s a fresh take on the classic black scarf, and offers a pop of texture in your fall wardrobe.
