Los Angeles based designers and sisters, Carine (left) and Arda (right) founded a boutique line of bags and jewelry, which initially began as an outlet of self expression, eventually leading to the establishment of Arda Marie Jewelry and Tannery LA. Each of the collections are filled with simple and versatile pieces — leathers, stones, and metallics, that are great for any occasion! Be sure to check out their work at Unique LA in December!
This weekend was all about being bohemian chic. I wasn’t sure where the day would take me yesterday, so I wanted to be ready for any situation be it casual / artsy / dressy. We ended up going to a street jazz festival (artsy), followed by dinner at one of my faveee restaus (dressier), followed by game night back at home (casual). Turns out my outfit was versatile enough for all!
Since my dress has a patterned lace overlay, I decide to opt out of wearing a belt or any loud jewelry. I kept earrings and necklaces simple, then decorated my wrists with a chunky sequined cloth bracelet and a few bangles (and my Jaw Bone Up Band, obviii).
This weekend’s look:
◊ Dress – Kimchi Blue ◊
◊ Shoes – Anthropologie (forever ago!) ◊

◊ Cloth Bracelet – Anthropologie ◊
Store: Leola Lace

What You’ll Find: Leola Lace has a wide variety of clothing styles, ranging from classic chic to bohemian. They also have a fabulous selection of purses and totes, along with beautiful pieces of both bold and dainty jewelry. The boutique usually has new styles and items on display each week, which means you should shop by once a week so you don’t miss out!
What We Loved: The owner and the employees (they are the sweetest), the interior design (succulents, terrariums, cloth covering windows), the wide variety of dainty necklaces and rings, and the sales rack!
Price Range: The jewelry usually ranges from $12 -$15, but there are a selection of higher quality pieces, ranging from $20-$30. The tops are around $20+ and dresses are $35+, but Larissa and I did find some great items on the sales rack (You’ll see if you keep scrolling)!
♥ Looks we Loved ♥
• The emerald dress can be paired with a blazer for work, then stripped down to expose the open back for cocktails and a night out on the town! A great outfit for a top knot bun too!
• The boxy, hot pink dress would be easy to slip on for work, and since the look is very bold, all you’ll need to complete the outfit are simple black heels! In the evening, ditch the work bag for a cute patterned clutch!
• The long sleeved lavender dress is perfect for both summer and fall/winter. The light and refreshing palette can be great during a cool summer’s day, complemented with bold jewelry and wedges. When fall rolls around, you could easily pair the dress up with tights/leggings and boots!
