Lily Simone * Luxe de Ville

I love these 2 eclectic Los Angeles boutiques!

Lily Simone & Luxe de Ville boutiques each have their own eclectic style & carry Leanna Lin Jewelry ♥ Both are offering an exclusive discount just for Leanna Lin Jewelry fans! Just say "I LOVE LEANNA LIN JEWELRY" and get 25% off Leanna Lin Jewelry and 15% off other merchandise in the store! This excludes sale items. Offer is good until May 1st!

* LILY SIMONE in Eagle Rock is like walking into a modern Audrey Hepburn movie. Look for the latest fashion trends + accessories, while shopping at this sweet pink & mint boutique. Venture through the archway to her other shop, which is a general store carrying fun gifts + home accessories + vintage. Simone (Lily is her dog :) searches high & low for that perfect piece to add to your collection!

* LUXE DE VILLE in Echo Park is the place to shop for your inner-eclectic self! Here you can find unique vintage & indie designer fashions + accessories. There's an amazing treasure of one-of-a-kind finds for men & women! Oskar is also a designer & creates his own jewelry collection + accessories ... so you never know what new funky thing will pop up in his shop!

Happy Earth Day

Have a wonderful day & be kind to this earth!

I believe in creating sustainable jewelry *-*
70% of Leanna Lin collections are made from vintage materials!

Here are a few of my simple + easy tips
* Recycle
* Bring your own shopping bags I love Baggu bags
* Eat organic & local * it's healthier & helps our local farms
* Be Eco-Conscious & it'll soon be automatic for you!

Here are a few places to get good local + organic food
* South Pasadena farmers market for that cute town feeling & good organic selection
* Forage in Silverlake, which has a different daily menu
* Good Girl Dinette in Highland Park, for comfort Vietnamese

A retro Palm Springs

* I love the vintage vases in the lobby at the Parker Palm Springs *

Palm Springs is only a few hours from L.A. and a great weekend getaway. Cookie cutter streets with mid-century modern homes + pools + mountain desert backdrops ... feels surreal!

This past weekend, I tagged along w/my husband & friends for the Coachella weekend music festival. We rented a mid-century modern home through Vacation Palm Springs, where you can live the retro-life! There's tons to do in Palm Springs ~ spas, outdoor adventures, architecture tours, vintage shopping, pool parties, museums, the famous Aerial Tramway + more!

Here are my favorite things to do in Palm Springs!
*start your day off with a jolt at Koffi *-*
*vintage shop along North Palm Canyon Drive
*patio lunch Norma's in Parker Palm Springs, designed by Jonthan Adler
(then wander the garden)
*yummy organic breakfast at Cheeky's
*stay at The Horizon Hotel, designed by architect William F. Cody
*stay at the hip Orbit In
*hang w/hipsters at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club
*Modernism Week in February, every President's Day weekend
*take the PS Modern Tour or buy a map and take a self tour

Spring in Wonderland

I was walking along the cute streets of Eagle Rock yesterday and came across this blooming bed of flowers at the edge of the sidewalk.
How nice of home owners to make their sidewalks pretty to look at too *-*
