Hi- I am Leslie Vargas, the "L" behind elle landon™. I am so excited to launch my website today! I would like to thank my husband Jon, our seven children (Emily, Paul, Landon (and Mandy), Cole, Claire, Christian, and Elliott), my brother John, and my mother Jean Landon Wallace for all their love and support. Also thanks to our good friends Kathy and Jim Huizenga for their help on my website, their friendship, patient advice, and sharing our love of wine and food, especially bottles of The Prisoner.
The photos are by Jon, except the product photos and the one of me on the contact page, they are by Sarah Gibson (who was also instrumental with helping me on the website, with product design, and in so many other ways!). She is a wonderful young designer who you can find on Instagram at sargibs or on her blog at roomfortuesday.com.
Special thanks go out to my dear friends Lisa Grissim Koetters (my best friend since our days at Harpath Hall and Vanderbilt), my former boss and attorney extraordinaire Ellen Weprin, and Nicole Gianuglou at Preen (also a shout out to Beth). Lastly, thanks to my friends Ann Dunham, Tori Watson, Cheryl Gadd, Kate Coleman, Mary Mims, Joni Light, and Mark Bustillo for all the times they have been there for me. These are all my guardian angels without whose love and support there would not be an Elle Landon for me to run.
