je t'aime tuleh

to me Tuleh was that quintessentially refined New York fashion house that really embodied the chic and stylish je ne sais quoi you don't see much of nowadays in American fashion.   it was fashion for women - pure and simple -  who enjoyed all that print, color, rosettes, bows, ruffles, and furs could do.  Tuleh was a fashion romantic and more than ever do we need that beautiful poetic spirit today.

Justin, you just made me the happiest gal. I'm breathless. In 1999, I was planning my wedding. I had recently moved to Pennsylvania from Mississippi, and had no one to help guide me (wedding-wise) except for my mother-in-law. While the wedding was to be held in MS, the shopping part of it I did in PA. I knew exactly what I wanted for my dress. I had this picture of a white Tuleh dress that I ripped from a magazine. It was perfectly covered in tiny bow. Classic in shape, with just enough edge. It was my dream dress. Suffice to say, it could not be found.. and fast-forward, I settled. I settled for a dress that my MIL told me I looked fabulous in, and I've hated it ever since. I have been searching for this Tuleh dress for over ten years, and I have long since lost the magazine page. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have found it again!!! I promise to remake this damn thing to the best of my ability. I can't believe I found a photo of it. Thanks for listening! xoxoxo
