Lovely Leather

beauty_photo11We’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.


All products (except the watches) are sold at Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, 421-9252, stripedesigngroup.com. Learn more at madebylex.com, and etsy.com/shop/nualaleather, or search for Nuala leather on Facebook.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
