Los Angeles

Kendall Conrad

Great trip to L.A.—popped into both of Kendall Conrad’s shops (sadly, she was in NYC), had coffee with the artists David and Kathy Leeds, saw family, stayed in a duplex bungalow at The Charlie Hotel, and spent a day at the beach in Malibu. Not bad for a long weekend.

  • Sounds like a wonderful trip! I am planning my next trip out there and was interested in staying at The Charlie Hotel. My friend used to live in that building before it became a hotel! This trip, I am likely having my three year old in tow. Would you recommend it? Looks like they did a lovely conversion and I love the old school Hollywood vibe. Kinda bummed it doesn’t have a pool. Having used to live in LA, I have since struggled trying to find a place to stay there that covers all the bases…

  • Hello always enjoy your posts. May I ask, are the rings and chocker necklace a matt finish or a shiny brass? Thank you:)

  • It was so great to meet you and your family. Come back soon! Kendall Conrad’s bags and jewelry are wonderful, aren’t they? Love the necklace in the bottom tray.

  • Would be interested in your sense of the “fashion vibe” in SoCal as compared to NYC. What similarities and what differences did you observe?

  • The Charlie is great for us (2 older kids, we can entertain there). It was too cool to swim so I didn’t miss a pool.

    The fashion vibe is casual chic with a lot of athletic bits—the ultimate run around territory. Kathy Leeds in her cargo pants and a mini Saint Laurent fringed bucket bag epitomized the best of L.A. style.

    If you have questions about Kendall’s jewelry, please call the shop, they are very helpful.
