Page 3 in the conversation "Chasing teal" by Brooklyn
This is an old find, but I know Cobb Hills are a standard.
ETA looks like this is the closest available now https://www.rockport.com/cobb-.....38;start=1
I did wonder if the heel was too high. It would be for me.
The inspo ones are good. Now for the right colour!
Jenni, Taos have a teal pair with a shorter shaft that is soooo close. But I have them already in another colour and I find them a bit heavy to wear with skirts.
FI, yours are good too, but not what I’m after.
Of course, I’m happy to have my forum emissaries out finding my boots for me
Brooklyn, whoopsie—I missed your post at the bottom of the other page. The new Cobb Hills are low heeled, which I thought you’d enjoy, but are nothing like those lace-ups.
No worries FI. I appreciate the thought. I’m always up for some teal finds, even if it’s just for looking
Brooklyn, I love yours!
This is the one I just ordered.
It’s the Aimee K brand I discovered through Janet on the forum.
Like you, I am bonkers for ombré.
I recently got one of their tie dye bags too but smaller.

Not Brooklyn’s boots, but Ropers has some gorgeous teal sandals; Zappos has them but my size is sold out.
I can only say you are Queen of Teal, you wear that color the best.
@Tanya that deep teal VB pantsuit you linked is wonderful, but one of my *absolute* HEWIs is a warm deep teal pantsuit with a shawl collar (curved lapels) instead. It's so hard to find shawl collars that aren't satin - let alone in teal!
If anyone ever sees such a suit, with a single breasted closure & rich in natural fibres (rather than polyester etc), please do let me know
Brooklyn, it's handy to have a handy hubs
And more fun teal I spotted at AT:
Carla, a company called Summersalt is advertising teal swimsuits on FB!
I kind of love this but doubt it would work on me:
There are more on the site.
I’ve never had a teal swimsuit but it would be ideal for me if I could find one that actually suited me. It’s so hard to find suits that look good on me that I tend to compromise a little on color.
I'm so late to this thread, but what a fun read, Brooklyn. I love teal, but since my wardrobe is High Neutral, I reserve it for special occasions and special pieces, like the HEWI VB suit I added this spring (twinning Tanya) and this antique turquoise ring which I wear frequently.
Speaking of actual suits, Ann Taylor also has Teal Jade suiting that popped up when I tried Angie’s link.
Brooklyn, you have some gorgeous teal pieces. I also love teal but only have one teal item at the moment. Shocking! It is a lovely teal embellished tee with lace and copper buttons. I went looking for it and cannot find it. It is somewhere.I also have some teal jewellery. I have a teal necklace, some earrings and a bracelet. I love the combination of teal and rust/copper.My living room use to be teal and rust. It is now rust and olive. However, I still have a pine table that Mr. SF #1 made with teal legs. I love it.
I am so conflicted over Teal: the right, deep rich shade of teal makes my eye color look incredible, similar to Janet’s piercing color.
All other teal brings up dark shadows beneath my eyes that aren’t usually there, and people say, “my God... are you all right?” (Well, they don’t actually say this, but I’m certain it’s what they’re thinking). Whereas aquas and turquoises are great, especially if they have more green in them.
The teal I was seeing in retail stores, and that is now turning up in thrift stores and consignment, is what I call Lack-Of-Commitment Teal - the color doesn’t have depth or saturation, and it looks like they skimped on dye. I saw this color frequently Ann Taylor, J Crew, Loft and Target, and was always aware of a vague disappointment.
Brooklyn, maybe we need to create a range of custom mix teal color formulas using RIT and DYLON, guaranteed to bring that peacock richness to our re-dyed treasures.
In looking up EF dresses for April’s wedding post, I found a teal dress. Just FYI...https://www.eileenfisher.com/w.....lorid=4589
In looking up Angie’s COS link, I found COS has what they call a teal bomber jacket, which is a casual modern jacket vaguely inspired by a bomber. They also have a couple of other teal pieces including a color block sweater.
Carla and Janet, Gottex has some teal swimwear as well.
