Tiny Yet Mighty

Paco, the 15lb chihuahua saves the day by chasing armed robbers out of a store in Altadena, CA! Another reason we love these little guys! They are tiny yet MIGHTY! Our hero :)

The Rose Bowl was hot this weekend, but the treasures we found were even hotter!!!
On Jessica's couch you'll spy 3 lumps resting atop her eclectic mix of throws. Starting from the left is her lucky find, a grain sack pillow she just couldn't resist! Beside that is her raccoon pillow (thanks Ebay). Finally there's Cash, one of her two long-haired chihuahua's. Maybe someone should tell him that's not to him?

ps. Her obsession with fur pillows has perpetuated a DIY patchworking project (F U Ebay she's crafty). Soon to be blogged about!

Remember my post about Tibetan Tiger rugs? I S.C.O.R.E.D. Check out the inspiration here.

How RAD is this leather visor? I'll be wearing it all summer!!!

So, where do you like to hunt for flea market treasures???

Spotted About + Decked Out: Kathryn of TheBlondeandTheBrunette

When we're invited to a summer house party in Bel Air, we go. And when we found out fellow LA designer Shay Todd was hosting a party with Nivea, we slathered on our sunscreen and hit the pool party with gusto. But nothing, and we really really mean NOTHING could have made us more happy than to see a gorgeous blonde wearing the tie dye Suburbia dress.

We introduced ourselves, so flattered over how phenomenal the piece looked on her, and gushed only to find out that this blonde wasn't just any old LA blonde. She's THE Blonde. Kathryn! You know, of Yea, her. pfhthbt.

She snagged the very last Suburbia at Planet Blue on Montana in Santa Monica, but we hear there may still be a few left in stock at other locations.

Surf-y Stuff

It didn't take Ricardo Tisci's Givenchy resort show yesterday to make us realize how into 80s surf culture and fashion we are right now, but his show did make us literally giddy and lightheaded and stunned all at once (as good art should, we think). No, our obsession started with the purchase of Jessica's hot pink and black aztec print cropped "Hammer pants" a few weeks ago.

And so, more surfy stuff that is just so righteous right now:

Now go away, June gloom.

Complimentary Yours: Crochet That Humbles Hipsters

All it took was the removal of her Miu Miu sunglasses to invite in the compliments of a group of dudes at the local breakfast spot. There is something about wearing Leyendecker that ALWAYS warrants compliments from strangers. We just died when we heard this incredible story from our friend, Zoe.

"Obviously clad in Leyendecker, I arrived arrived early, before my friend, and took a spot next to a group of boy hipsters and as soon as my sunnies came off, one of the guys (who had amazing style) leaned towards me and was like, 'Hey you must be in fashion, that is such an amazing top.' I looked surprised because I'm actually not at all in the fashion industry and I told him so. Then his friend said 'Oh, are you a musician? An artist? A writer?' I sell pharmaceuticals, so no. But I asked 'so all this because of my top?' and they, as a group, all agreed 'It's hot.' It was super cute to see this group of hipsters humbled and honest and well, cute! All thanks to the power of a super cute crochet top."

What attention has wearing Leyendecker brought you? Tell us!

Two's Better Than Anything: Our Favorite Two-fers

Versatility is part of our design theory. Day or night. Dress up or down. Winter or summer. But we're also really really digging two-fers. As in, wearing one piece two very different ways. Like, backwards or forwards. Our long sleeved Reversible Crochet and Lace Mini Dress is just one ejemplo of our idea of a perfect-o two-fer. We're pretty sure that Two is not only better than one, but that it's better than anything.

Here, another example: Just Cavalli's Reversible Bikini, Gold shimmer on one side, l-l-leopard on the other.

And another example: Getting your nail polish remover WITH your Nail Polish, thanks to the brilliance of Butter London (Fairy Lights is such a perfect pink).

And as if you needed ANY more convincing, Jessica's Cash and Leroy.

Because it's always fun to romanticize the past, we're entranced by the hippies of 1967. Happy Summer. Now go get your crochet and feathers and moonstone necklaces.

Obsession: Snow Leopard Print

Obvi, we love Leopard print. Who doesn't? But for Spring, we wanted to find a leopard that didn't look too heavy, dark, or Fall-ish, so we looked to, (where else?) winter. Bright whites and light greys mixed with black - that's the kind of leopard we want to wear in the warmer months. And so, we found a super femme and fab snow leopard print silk fabric and it's been blowing off the shelves of Barney's and the like. LOVE snow leopard.

And theeeeeennnn, we found THIS. A snow leopard BIKINI. OMObsessed.

It's from a cool line called Tavik and we just love the unusual box-cut top (we do that a lot) and sexy briefs (once an oxymoron, it's not anymore, thanks to Tavik).

Will you be in bathing suit for the Memorial Day weekend? You bet both of us will be twinsies in this baby.

Let me introduce you to yet another creative Leyendecker pal..Ashley Chafin

Ashley lives in Los Angeles. She is a very talented artist with a love of four-legged friends. Her pet portraits are some of my favorite pieces. They have so much personality and flare! They look adorable with pretty much any decor and are great gifts! In fact, the last painting was a special gift from the artist. It's of Rolo (rip)..he was my chihuahua before Mars.
