Palm Springs Delightful

Palm Springs is always a swell time.  I always find myself terribly hot, but so amused and content by my surroundings of midcentury modern chic.  Always inspired by my surroundings, I take design direction from the environment around me whether  it's nature or bold prints.  The Viceroy is always a nice boutique spot and the ladies on this August trip happily appreciated the Sovereign villa we stayed in not to mention steps away from Chi Chi!  Our home away from home!  We enjoyed our time on the Parker grounds, everyone's fav takes on a 70's vibe designed by Jonathan Adler. As you can see our Jendarling shoe bags fit quite in at the new Avalon, previously Viceroy.  Cin Cin!

Closet Envy

I remember growing up, my closet was painted a blue hue with built in steps for shoe organization.  I loved it!  Cleaning it, organizing it, visiting it.  It's one of the reasons why I created Jendarling, stylish bags for the closet.  Inside and out!  At 26, living on my own in the Marina district of San Francisco (also home to LARGE walk-in closets) I had my first big one - a walk-in closet!  A closet you can sleep in?  Take it.  It was also the closet that helped me launch my first garment bag designs.  Many walk-in's later, paired with garment bags - I still dream and envy closets and what's inside.  Here's a few swoon worthy closets from Kelly Wearstler to  Aerin Lauder - these ladies closets are worth aspiring to.  Check out our favorites via Pinterest 

 

All about that garment bag

Plastic, always gets a bad wrap.  It does not store our cherished clothing items well and it's not breathable for the long haul.  True, a free garment bag when shopping is a perk and sometimes is reused as there are not a lot of options.  Garment bags come in all kinds of materials, we think that cotton is best. Although Jendarling garment bags are our bread and butter of what we do -  we admit, garment bags are not sexy.  It's not always top of mind.  But they sure do help out! A lot designers make an effort to create good ones that can go from point A to B that come with the dress as seen below.  For the long haul, we prefer our cotton ones best.
