While sharks are attracted to brightly colored clothing because of their ability to see sharp contrasts, mermaids are attracted to designer clothing because of their waterproof copies of Italian Vogue. Become part of the fashion world with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of upscale women's apparel and accessories at Tula Boutique.
Tula drapes limbs in luxurious basics, packing racks with casual, hand-selected designer clothing, bags, jewelry, and accessories. An eclectic mix of hard-to-find labels such as Three Dots, Trovata, and Antik Batik lead customers on a chic promenade, while the one-on-one styling advice from store owner Laura Westgate keeps clients pulled together and blissfully free of pattern-matching responsibilities. Snag a Three Dot T-shirt to turn a wardrobe staple into something stately ($50), or carelessly toss a Me & Kashmiere scarf across clavicles, covering bare necks or adding a splash of color to Bedouin costumes ($138). Shoppers can pull on a Trovata ivory- and taupe-striped cotton top with silk hem detailing ($78), get elegantly dressed in one step with the Jarbo heather gray rushed dress ($249), or display arms with the Elvis Laskin coral screen-printed tank, allowing the sun to gently kiss once-wintery shoulders ($60).
Tula's vintage townhouse space beckons browsers with whitewashed brick walls and cleverly arranged vintage display pieces. A friendly, relaxed staff stands ready to help with sartorial conundrums, or press the button under the counter that summons the store's helpful dressing sparrows.
