Turquoise to robin's egg; Resources
Since I'm not the only one captivated by robin's egg-to-turquoise hues, I thought I'd offer some sources.
Brora call this luscious shade opal, but it looks like a pale-ish robin's egg to me, (with no green in it, Lisa). Excellent quality from a beloved Scottish maker. V-neck, £169. International shipping.
Pashminas Direct will make shaded pieces by order, like this turquoise ranging from pale to deeper hues, about £35 for a 75cm x 180cm shawl; send a request via Pashmina Direct's online store.
Turquoise ostrich tote, in good/very good used condition, lined in camel suede, $1,380 from Portero.
Talbot's piqué jacket in "Adriatic", web only. The brand I love to slam may have created a really solid winner. It even has a waistline.
And for $169.
Baccarat crystal Galet pendant, $230, available to US only from Neiman Marcus.
You can find Bacarrat jewelry at many other locations, such as Galeries Lafayette in Paris, and at Bacarrat boutiques worldwide.
Craig Taylor ruched cotton/nylon shirt, $155 from Neiman Marcus. I like how a turquoise shirt picks up either a black or white skirt; or if you're brave, red, orange, purple, pink...
Diane von Furstenberg Kula leather sandals, $245 from Net-a-porter. I like the graceful proportions and gold leather detailing, which takes this sandal from day to night.
I'm still looking for my robin's egg driving loafers!
