I loooove their scallop print dresses. I've been trying to work on my spanish(or lack there of)and reading blogs is an easy and fun way to do it. If you like La Casita De Wendy, you might just like Grosso Modo:

They have so many beautiful images even if you can't read spanish it's still a super sweet blog.

Here, Jenny, I can translate for you. The sidebar on the main page reads:

Ines Aguilar (33) and Ivan Martinez (37) are the two designers from Madrid of "la casita de wendy" ("wendy's little house"). Respectively they are licensed (maybe "have degrees in?") in Architecture by the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Philosophy by the Autonoma University of Madrid.

[from me: Autonoma University is probably the "Free University" or "Independent University"; I don't know the institution, so I can't translate that precisely for you, so I've left the Spanish in. Translation continues below.]

They began to design clothes 9 years ago and now they are embarking on various projects like designing [I don't know "tejios de papel para hogar" - some kind of paper product for the home, my guess would be wallpaper?], notebooks and day planners, etc. Their designs are characterized by the use of a select palette of colours, simple forms,and contrasting prints. Their passions and inspirations are nature, music, stories, magic and figments of the imagination. Their clothing is distributed in showrooms in Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid, and they have sold their collections at the international level in such prestigious stores as Barneys in New York, Cocktail in Hong-Kong, Matsuya, Rue Charlote, and Mystic in Tokyo, Liborius in Iceland, Henrik Vibskov in Denmark, Victoire in Paris, Fenwick in London, etc. and in more than 80 select points of sale throughout Spain.

Additionally now you can encounter a selection of their best/most popular ("mejores") garments in the new Online Store.

If you need any more of it translated, Jenny, just send me an email or post on my blog or something. I could use a brush-up to keep my Spanish fresh these days; I'm learning Czech and I keep worrying that I'll lose all my Spanish in the process!

Google translate usually gives a fairly decent run-down! Not great but good enough to get by...

"Ines Aguilar and Ivan Martinez are the two Madrid-based designers behind the label “La Casita de Wendy.” Ines studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Madrid, while Ivan studied philosophy at the Autonoma University in Madrid.

They started to design clothing 9 years ago, and are now engaged in a variety of projects like weaving and paper design for notebooks, agendas etc. Their designs are characterised by the use of a select colour palette, simple shapes and contrasting patterns. Their passions and inspirations are nature, music, fairy tales, magic and the imagination. Their clothing is distributed in showrooms in Paris, Barcelona and Madrid and they have sold their clothing internationally to prestigious shops such as Barneys in New York, Cocktail in Hong Kong, Matsuya, Rue Charlote and Mystic in Tokyo, Liborius in Iceland, Henrik Vibskov in Denmark, Victoire in Paris, Fenwick in London... and more than 80 locations in Spain.

It is now also possible to find a selection of their finest clothing in their new online store."

Nice, everything is perfect.

In addition, La Casita got notice because Bjork wore some of their designs in the 90s. They teach in several universities in Madrid and also at their own studio (El Estudio), and they are very good at it btw!

And Merche Grosso is a friend, with a strong point of view and a really cute aesthetic. A beautiful blog!
