Lina Rennell

how is it that i only learned about Lina Rennell today? all i know is that i haven’t wanted a beanbag since i was in varsity, but now i sure do.

Driven by optical passions and an addiction to excellence in textiles, Lina Rennell is a high-casual women’s wear and textile label based in Northern California. Launched in 2009 by Angelina Rennell, a true wild child and daughter of Los Gatos, California. The Rennell line is an art brand with a heavy focus on original print work, old world USA production, craft and tailoring.

she is stocked at a number of places, but you can buy her stuff online at Beklina.

The ASOS Dress

i have a very bizarro habit of browsing ASOS for dresses… often. i don’t know what it is, probably because i like to be overly prepare for things (eg buying a new outfit for a wedding that’s 6 months away, or getting my summer dresses now while it’s still raining). so, may as well turn my obsession into something helpful. looking for a dress? i’ve got you covered.

just click on the fancy little icons to be taken to the dress.

Jean Stories

i think i got onto Jean Stories because i saw a pic of a nice bum in a nice pair of jeans somewhere. that’s how these things start, you know. good bums in good pairs of jeans are kind of everything. sort of like The Selby meets Freuden von Freunden meets Closet Story – but in denim. it was started by Jane Herman Bishop and Florence Kane, both fashion writers at Vogue.

Jean Stories is all about denim – who’s wearing it and making it, why we love it, and all the ways it reflects our lives and styles. Jane grew up in Los Angeles selling jeans at her family’s Ron Herman stores, where she got an informal denim education from some of the industry’s best. Florence’s fondest denim memories were, until now, from the 90s: stealing her dad’s Levi’s and Pendleton plaids to wear to high school in San Diego; decorating her room with Calvin Klein Jeans ads.

plus they have this amazing story about Rachel Comey and her new store in NYC which i am dying to visit. why must i be 12,500km away?
