Colombian Independence Day!

July 20th is Colombian Independence Day! Allow us to join in the celebration by highlighting some favorite Colombian brands carried by Lenceria Boutique! 

Maaji - This brand has always been one of my favorites. I love the fun mixture of bright colors, patterns and designs that can be found in both their swimwear and lingerie lines. The swimwear is very fun, with a lot of different looks and styles, with the added bonus of being reversible - so it’s like getting two suits for the price of one! The lingerie line has a little more famine feel with an added touch of lace, but keeps the same whimsical energy found in the swimwear. 


       


Entreaguas - This swimwear is so simple, yet still so classically refined. The fabric is smooth and soft, flattering the body in all the right places while still staying functional in the water. The braiding and weaving that adorns the sides, backs and straps of different pieces adds a uniqueness to each piece. The beautiful earthy tones puts one in touch with nature, while highlighting the sun-kissed glow of the skin. 




Agua Bendita - This is by far one of the most well-known lines, and for good reason! The bright colors, eye-catching patterns and stunning details make these suits the life of any get together. All of the details - the beads, stones, and fabric touches that adorn each piece are carefully sewn on by hand, making each suit feel like a one-of-a-kind creation. 




Touché - With beautiful, elegant and comfortable designs, Touche lingerie is a must have for any closet! This Colombian brand prides itself on creating clothing that for the modern woman, creating pieces that are functional with a classic touch - providing the aesthetic of beautiful lingerie, while still being versatile enough to wear day or night! 





Lenceria Boutique is proud to carry so many designs by such talented Colombian brands. Swing by the store and check them out for yourself - we’d love to see you on Melrose! Happy Independence Day Colombia!

Father's Day Gift Ideas

Let's be honest: awesome dads don't get nearly enough credit. 
They teach us how to ride a bike, take us for ice cream and movie dates, give our senior prom date the "you'd better get her safely home by 10pm" lecture, and continue to impart valuable life lessons throughout our life.
One day a year isn't nearly enough to show our gratitude, but it is certainly a start!
If you live close to your dad (lucky you!) Father's Day is the perfect time to bring back the Daddy/ Daughter Date.
Take him out for a sweet treat and that action flick that he hasn't had time to see yet!
Is home sweet home a few states away from your pops?
Treat him to a phone call or FaceTime date and catch each other up on your lives 
or send him a greeting card with a surprise gift certificate for a day at the batting cages 
so you two can share some quality time on your next visit!
Are you and your S.O. parents yourselves?
Treat him to a date and plan everything!
Maybe check out an MLB game or take him camping with the kiddos!
Don't forget to pack a little something special for some alone time with him...luckily, we just got some new Maison Close Lingerie for the occasion!

Festival Clothing

Whether you love listening to the latest indie, pop, or country music, this summer's festival lineup has you covered. Maybe you are headed to Coachella in April or perhaps you booked your Stagecoach tickets as soon as they went on sale. Either way, it's now time to stock up on funky and fun bohemian outfits! A favorite heat-friendly solution is swimwear or coverups!
Check out these pieces from Mar de Rosas! Pair these with some well-worn cutoffs and strappy sandals!
     
  Maravilla del Mar Bikini
We especially love these two bohemian macrame back bikinis!          
                                                  Mar de Rosales Bikini with Crochet Back                        
Want to wear more than a bikini and still stay cool? Mar de Rosas has the answer.
I love this one! It can be worn as a skirt or a top!

          Mar de Perla Blouse
 Our newest brand, Paradizia is absolutely perfect for the festival circuit! Check out these amazing bikinis!
Maybe a monokini or macrame one piece is more your thing?
               Spiritual Monokini
And one of my personal favorites, this gorgeous beaded and embroidered kimono. Sigh....
Let us know what you think of our festival picks! What would you add to the collection?

Rainy Day Guide

We are incredibly lucky in Southern California. Most of our days are filled with bright sunshine and bikinis, crop tops, and flip-flops as far as the eye can see. We hardly ever have rainy days.
While some SoCal residents might not agree, I think the rare drizzly day is magnificent, and the perfect time to indulge!



You might not be able to hit the beach, but you can put on your most comfortable pjs (we highly recommend Touche's pajama sets and separates - so soft!), make a hot cup of tea (or pop open a bottle of wine...), and fully commit to a Netflix marathon or finally finishing that book that has been sitting on your bedside table since Christmas break.

OR you could go another route...

Massages, anyone? AfterGlow Candles (by the incomparable JimmyJane) are wonderful for setting the mood with a soft glow and delicious scent. After they have warmed up, they melt into (lick-able!) massage oils. Pair that with the Contour M Massage Stone for a delightfully relaxing hot stone massage.

However you may spend your rainy days, enjoy them!

A Day at the Races

Churchill Downs Long Dress - Add a little bit of flair with this beautiful maxi dress cover up. The semi-sheer fabric is light and floaty enough to wear over your swimsuit and easily transition from a day at the beach to a night on the town!

Mary O'Hara Top - One of my favorite new pieces is this adorable bandeau top - complete with an overtop sporting flirty cutouts and a soft, willowy feel. It's the perfect thing to give you an extra touch of sass.
Blue Dots Top and Bottom - This adorable suit is perfect for a day out in the sun. Along with the fun polka dot print, the top offers underwire support (score!), making sure you stay happy, comfy and ready for anything!

Mosaic Oaks Shorts - I'm also a fan of these cute semi-sheer shorts. Fun and comfy with a dash of sexy.

So many choices - so little time! These are pieces that are going to be hard resist.
