Loving Lenni (the Label) | Small Haul
Updated: Nov 14
Let me preface by saying this is a bit of a late post, for I am not the type to wear white after Labor Day- however I had to document my love for these pieces somehow. I placed an order with Lenni the Label a few months back for some pieces that I just could not take my eyes off of- a dainty, little crop top with a tie-dye print that looks like a cloudy sky and a short dress with a vintage, floweresque-type vibe that had a matching bikini set (which I obviously had to get, too).
Lenni the Label is a growing brand based in Australia that founder Lisa (aka Lenni) Stricker opened in 2013 with the intent to create pieces that embodied a
blend of wearable sexy and vintage 70's vibes with a touch of mystery and darkness, in styles that can be dressed up or down to the occasion. I found the brand on Instagram and had been following for a while before locking down on this purchase, and I think I bought it during some sale they had going on, so it all worked out at the right time for me to bring these babies into my life.
With all of that being said, the Great
Quarantine of 2020 kind of put a stop to all events and things worth pulling out my favorite new pieces for, so I had to get either creative or patient. Obsessed with clouds this summer, I purchased a tapestry from Society 6 to put on my bedroom wall and felt inspired to embody one in a DIY photoshoot. I searched long and hard for a skirt that would have the right look, and truth be told, I struggled and ended up getting one from Forever 21. It did the job, I guess, because the most important part of the look is the top. The Crush Shirred Cami in Bloom from Lenni the Label is
NEXT- the bikini! I wore the bikini on a recent trip to Lake Tahoe and I am so into the fit of the top. It is super flattering for my fellow small chested girls (and I'm betting supportive for the latter) and comfortable, all at the same time. The bottoms are super cheeky and high legged, kinda run a little, but are overall a nice style. The material has a nice stretch and ribbing to it that meshes in the vintage vibes of the brand's core identity and makes this groovy-lookin' swimmie one of my favorites of the order.
The last piece I bought from Lenni the Label was the Crushed Shirred Dress in Bloom. Now, originally, I would have imagined this dress to be a summer style, however, with the coloring and ability to shift moods so easily, this dress can, without a doubt, go all seasons (which is something I prefer to go for). The dress is a short, upper-thigh length with thin, adjustable straps, printed with a vibrant fuchsia, yellow, and orange floral pattern on a forest green base. The top to middle cinches slightly and creates the illusion of curvier hip area. I can picture this dress styled with a cardigan and sneakers for a casual look, or black platform sandals and a small leather clutch to go out (maybe add a leather jacket if necessary). Ultimately though, this dress would be perfect to wear with a pair of slide sandals to the beach on a warm day, so thank goodness I live in Orange County where our Fall has rarely fallen below 85° F. I have yet to wear it, but when I do, I'm sure I'll be excited about it and post a little pic somewhere.
I think it is fair to say that I love Lenni the Label, and I will keep them on my radar for cute staple pieces. If I've convinced you, go check them out at https://lenni-shop.com.
