Gemini Inspiration

May 29, 2017
by Alexis Adams
Ah, Gemini – arguably the most dynamic of all the signs. I mean, you do get two personalities in one! Social, curious, intelligent….and also serious, pensive, restless. As a Gemini myself I know firsthand the adaptability and nomadic nature of the twinned sign. To celebrate the new moon in Gemini, I’ve gathered some of my fav items in the shop – light and dark, whimsical and serious, there’s something in here to please both sides of the ever-changing Gemini personality. Also, don’t miss our special event with designer Emily Hirsch of Talon and zodiac + tarot expert Marty Windahl in the Los Angeles store!

Material Girl + The Bohème

March 6, 2017
by Madeline & Julia
Hi! We’re Madeline and Julia, the newest additions to the Los Angeles ESQUELETO team. We have a lot in common: we both have adorable Chihuahuas that we are obsessed with, we love the cinema, and love exploring the myriad culinary offerings of East L.A. But we are also different in a lot of ways, which is why we enjoy working with each other. After all, opposites attract! Maddie is really into 90s fashion, with a minimal and clean-lined aesthetic, while Jules has a very bohemian “more is more” attitude. Here are some of our first staff picks for the month of March, and why we selected them over all the many beautiful things in the shop. Madeline: Invisible Moon Face Studs by... Read More
