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.

Trays of Kendall Conrad’s jewelry.

  • 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.
