“Never underestimate the thoughtful and generous power of Kristina Bouweiri.” — Sharon Ragland

“One of the many things that I admire about Kristina is her loyalty to her friends. No matter how busy, Kristina will always respond to a friend in need and do everything within her power to help you any way she can. It’s one of the traits that make her so special.”—Kelly Harmon

“Kristina is a sister that I got to choose. She is “always there”, when I need a friend, a brilliant leader, networker, able and willing to think outside the box, generous to a fault, loyal beyond comprehension, and lots of fun. We have shared both sad and glorious moments, always with a shared mantra, ‘life is too short to drink bad wine'” —Grace Keenan

“One of the greatest gifts of a true girlfriend-friendship are those moments when you can engage in those personal and intimate conversations with people you love and admire. It is those moments when you can share your dreams, ambitions, goals, challenges, foibles and what would make one think they have enjoyed a life well-lived. Kristina and I have enjoyed many such conversations, but one of those most memorable was when she shared that she would know she was really successful when she could consider herself a philanthropist. Well Kristina, you accomplished that goal long ago–you are a GREAT Philanthropist!” —Cynthia de Lorenzi

We can’t say it enough here at LLD, WE LOVE OUR CUSTOMERS!… Best of all, and we love to hear their favorite moments with their LLD bag. Keyla is one of our special customers and has been kind enough to share her wedding day with LLD. She was absolutely stunning on her wedding day with our Multi-White MBag! 
Wedding Day: May 20, 2016
Location: Orange Beach, in Gulf Shores, Alabama
Theme: Beach, coral and turquoise
Groom’s Name: Tyler J. Castille
Maiden Name: Galíndez
Proposal: A secluded beach location in Galveston, Texas (Where they had their second date–super romantic!)
Favorite place/outfit to wear your green MBag?
“I try to use my bags with as many outfits as I can, but my favorite idea so far? I am planning on wearing my green MBag to a “Vegas casino night” party with a short black velvet dress, my favorite black pair of Jimmy Choos, paired with emerald green jewelry from Pandora, simple and sleek designs that really make the bag the star of the outfit!”

It’s been a crazy twenty days here in Houston, Texas and LLD is off yet again! First, we’d like to recap on all things #RODEOHOUSTON!

It’s a neat thing – the rodeo is; the southern hospitality is apparent throughout everything they do here. From an enormous amount of scholarships given to kids from various places, to a pink out night in support of breast cancer awareness, and even a whole night dedicated just to those who bravely fight on the front lines for our nation!

Released to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Website, over 13 millions dollars has been awarded in one calendar year. There are around 750 scholarships that are awarded to many deserving kids across the state of Texas.

Another cool that happened this year- Zac Brown and his wife shelly were one of four buyers of the grand champion market steer that sold for $330,000 on the last Saturday of the livestock show and rodeo. Zac is a member of the country music group, the Zac Brown Band, and was a member of FFA when he was younger.

Among all of the many cool things that we were able to witness throughout our time, this might just be the coolest! It’s truly amazing to watch so many people come together, put on great shows every single night, and give back so much to today’s youth.

LLD was able to meet so many new people; it was interesting to meet so many that come from all different walks of life! See you soon!

Are you headed to #RODEOHOUSTON, but not sure what to wear? We’ve got you covered with the top western trends happening in 2017!

Fringe: Who doesn’t love a good bit of fringe? It’s so IN right now, it’s easy to overkill. Be wary of wearing too much at one time; if your bag has fringe, maybe leave the fringe skirt in the closet for one night and vice versa.

Flare: Bell-bottoms are BACK! This isn’t a joke, either. Now, this isn’t the 70’s bell look that looks as though you may take flight … just a touch of flare around the bottom half of the pant is perfect. Right along with flare in the bottoms, flared sleeves and tops are in, too! Gone is the skin- tight, suck it in look – it’s more comfy and cute.

Leather: This is a no- brainer, right? Leather is always generally associated with the western look, and rightfully so – but it’s important to remember that a little leather goes an extremely long way. Maybe leave your leather pants at home if you’re planning to don the pleather top – compromise, you know? A simple way to get that leather fix is a cute, simple leather jacket to spice up your low – pro outfit!

Denim: We know what you’re thinking – of course, I’d wear jeans to the rodeo… but there is more to denim than just your favorite pair of Wranglers! Denim shirts are IN right now; not only that, but denim on denim is very hip right now, too. It might sound like something you wouldn’t think of paring together, but with the right top and shoes, it’s easy to rock, and so trendy.

The boho gypsy look with a touch of vintage has made its way into western fashion in full- force! Of course, you can never go wrong with dusting that old pair of boots off and scooting around for an evening watching the cowboys and performers on the rotating stage! Be sure to stop by the shops while you’re here and pop into our booth!
