Turning Heads Linkup- Uno Alla Volta-Italian Suede Clutch and Brooch Review


Hello Ladies. We went to see the Total Eclipse in Greenville, SC and it was so amazing! My hubby took some good shots so I hope to share more of that and my day’s adventure on the blog most likely Friday. Puppies were so good and it didnt phase them  It really was a great event with people cheering when it went to Total Eclipse.  We were gone until late in the evening when we got home, as there was a bit of traffic!

This is  favorite day to see all of your fashions and to influence me to spend more money on clothes! hehehe. I am bringing you some amazing accessories from Uno Alla Volta, a company in which I have partnered HERE,  HERE HERE and HERE. Do you ask the questions, how do my accessories make my look? What do they say about me?

Can you think of wearing an outfit without a purse? Or without your choice accessories? It would kind of feel bland, right? Accessories take a look to another level and ususally show our personalities. I collect vintage brooches, and love the story behind them. Well, I am wearing this  Mexican fire opal owl brooch, from Uno All Volta, made by artisan, Leon Nussbaum, as the shades from the fire opal sparkle in tones ready for Fall. Greens, yellow, red, blue, purple, all sparkle amidst the beautiful sterling silver. I love this piece, as the fire opal reminds me of the opal piece which reflects colors that I bought in Santa Fe, NM last year.

I love a love for brooches and will be sharing just how to style them for Fall as well. The next item that was sent to me was the Florentine Suede Fringe Clutch Purse-“Exclusively Italian by design, materials and craftsmanship, this roomy tan suede clutch purse with hand-trimmed details is masterfully handcrafted, one at a time, in Florence, Italy by our artisas Elisabetta and Alessandra.”  The fringed camel suede clutch  because of its neutral shade can be worn with so much.  The suede is luscious and the clutch sturdy and very well made. I was thrilled to receive this, as I wanted a neutral clutch to add to my handbag collection., Each of these items are made one at a time, making them very special pieces, as the artisans put their heart into the design and craftsmanship.

Purse measures approx. 11 in. x 19.75 in. when open.

I would like to say that these pieces say, ” I love unique and well crafted accessories. I have a sense of whimsy and fun ( the owl and the fringe design) and love the upcoming season. i LOVE the colors that are in this pin, sparkling in the sunlight.

As a reminder, Uno Alla Volta, means “one at a time” and it the way the artisans craft their art, as well as their philosophy on living. Take one day at a day, moment at a time, appreciate the things around you. I can appreciate this sentiment as I find myself doing just that.

I decided on more of a neutral look with this rust/pumpkin Vince Camuto blouse,poshmark LOFT cargo pants, ( old-, sim) and  Franco Sarto espadrilles.( here) c/o earrings Sylca Designs

I am a big fan of these cargo loose pants, and bought them in three different colors a few years ago.   I wanted the accessories to compliment this look.

    I love these autumnal colours, they look amazing with your hair. The brooch and fringe clutch are gorgeous! Wearing handmade pieces feels much more special than mass produced items. We watched the eclipse on TV, it looked awesome 🙂

    This outfit looks so great on you! I agree with you about what well chosen accessories can do for an outfit. I love adding some jewelry, a scarf, or a great bag to an outfit to add detail and interest.

    Can’t wait to see those eclipse pictures. Up here in Mass we only got 60% coverage so not super impressive! Unlike that owl brooch and bag, which are fab 🙂 Love that little owl, reminds me of the 1970s. So does the bag for that matter. Way back in my hippie chick days I remember my collection of fringed bags. Still love them. That pumpkin top with all it’s draping and ruching is so flattering. Need to find one like it.

      Thank you Theresa! The total was very impressive, so beautiful. Im going to look through and post the pics hopefully Friday. I hear you with the 70s, maybe I need to get out my big flared jeans! This is my first fringe bag and I do love this, I see this with a boho look too for sure! I bought the top on Poshmark, a US site that is like thrifting on-line. xx

    I love the fall colors in this outfit, plus those pants. I hear so many people criticize cargo pants, but yours are absolutely lovely and work so well to add an extra texture to go with those accessories.

      Fall is my favorite season for dressing, all of the layering and color. These pants are meant to be a bit baggy and I liked them so much when I bought them I bought 3 different colors! Glad you like the look Mary 🙂 xx

    Great color combination! Your cute little owl brooch and statement fringe clutch really added fantastic visual interest to your look. The boys and I enjoyed watching the eclipse together and enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience. We were careful to avoid I-85, as the traffic was incredible yesterday.

      That is great! I bet your kids loved it. We drove to Greenville, SC and it took us 4 hours in traffic. It usually takes a bit over an hour and a half, so we were stuck in it! It was so worth it, im checking out my hubby’s pics today! Glad you like the outfit.. I wanted to add a touch of fall and am a fan of brooches, the owl’s opal really shines in the light. xx

    Jess, these colors are definitely “your” colors! The fall colors are so amazing on you. And this clutch is just fabulous! I adore the owl pin and your sandals, too. Always gorgeous, my friend! How fun to experience the total eclipse. We only had a partial eclipse in upstate NY, but I watched the total eclipse on tv which was pretty cool, too. Although I am sure it was much more fascinating to view live in person.

    Wasn’t the eclipse so cool?? I would have loved to see it in SC! Whatever color you where, I think to myself, ‘This is her color!’, you look great in every color. These earthy tones look beautiful on you. Love your clutch and shoes !
