  • Back In New England!

    We made it back to Boston!

    It was a lovely winter in the west visiting friends and family ... and meeting many of you! Nothing like a little sunshine and warm air to give you new inspiration and a fresh perspective.

    Olivia and I were lucky enough to be accompanied by a dear friend on our journey cross country! It made our days pass quickly with laughter, conversation and brainstorming for a new business!

    We traveled the Southern route to enjoy as much warm weather as we could, stopping in Holbrook, AZ at the Wigwam Motel. Such a cool place to stay one day. They have tee-pees set up like individual guest rooms - SO COOL! Quick stay in Amarillo, TX and then after a long drive we landed in Nashville, TN for a wonderful dinner and some live music! One more day on the road put us in Harrisburg, PA for the night after stopping for sushi in Roanoke, VA. Day 4 landed us back in Boston! Phew - very long trip but beautiful to see the country! A few photos above encapsulate our trip :)

    Now, back to business with Summer & Fall shows. You'll be able to meet us at The Greenway Shows in Boston every Saturday, May 7 - Oct 8 and The Ink Block Shows every Sunday, May 1 - Oct 23! Watch for new styles hand-crafted from beautiful new leather hand picked from Los Angeles and New York. Visit us and introduce yourself - we'd love to meet you!

    More show news and magazine ads to tell you about too, stay tuned!

    Smile, Hug, Love,
    Lara ;)


  • COCO LOVES ... Lara B. Designs!

    We have been featured in House of Coco, Vol 5, COCO LOVES!

    We are truly so grateful for all of the media attention coming our way! Not only were we able to be part of the Designer Spotlight(see previous blog post for details) in House of Coco's online magazine but we're also in Volume 5 of their print magazine too! Available now in the UK. We shared our Pink Orchid Tote, Silver Sparkle Wristlet and our Pink Orchid Pouch! It's really all so exciting and there's even more on the way ... stay tuned! I'll be posting more in the next coming days.

    Summer is on it's way and we've filled our schedule with shows. We'll keep you posted where to find us through Twitter, Instagram and on our Facebook page - follow us!

    Smile, Hug, Love,
    Lara ;)

  • Just Released: Lara B. Designer Spotlight Interview with House of Coco

    What is the hardest challenge you have faced since you started the company?

    "Finding time to design! There are so many facets to owning a business and they all need proper attention. I find it challenging to make the time to sit down and focus on designing."

  • Spring Is In The Air!

    It has been a busy and exciting few weeks on the west coast; the weather is warming up and spring is in the air!

    Since our launch of the 'Bag To The Future' campaign in the April edition of BRITISH VOGUE, we've been honored to have offers from GQ, Glamour, TATLER and House of Coco magazines for additional campaigns! We'll keep you posted on upcoming features like the May edition of BRITISH VOGUE and an interview with House of Coco too ... stay tuned for updates!

    We had a fantastic time in Santa Ynez! Participating in the 29th Annual Spring Art Festival in Newbury Park, CA and the Buellton, CA Wine & Chili Festival alongside our dear friend and owner of Botanical Notes. She's the creator, offering wine inspired body products & soy candles all infused with the finest essential oils - the Black Raspberry and Vanilla scent is divine and absolutely my favorite! Find her on Instagram at botanical_notes. It was so fun to meet you all and get some great ideas for new styles you're looking for :)

    Stay in touch, we love to hear from you!

    Smile, Hug, Love,
    Lara ;)
