The Palm Springs Guide for the Fashion 'IT' Girl

When it comes to weekend getaways, Palm Springs is always on our list!  From the sun to the palm trees, the iconic mid century architecture, and being a mecca for all things vintage is what makes this a top destination on our list.  We don't hate sipping on Mai Tai's while dancing at pool parties all day either.  Hey, whatever your thing is, we love it all!  

We've put together a short list of our top 3 favorite locations to get the ultimate Palm Springs look.  Fashion is always the first thing we think about when attending any party.  You have to find that balance between looking effortless while actually trying, but not too hard, and we believe that how you dress, is how you feel!  So put on a little extra eye liner and wear the hot pink lipstick you've been dying to try, because ladies we're going out! Oh, and don't forget to always dress in theme with the event and never out dress the host showing perfect etiquette!  

With these hot stores on our radar we know the perfect destinations to find colorful threads that will be the rave of every pool and garden party on our agendas this summer.

First up...


1. The Fine Art of Design

The mecca of all things vintage!!!  Audrey Hepburn, eat your heart out.

The vintage hat boxes steal the scene in this candyland of vintage duds.  The boutique has collected them over the years and has become a staple and fan favorite for all visitors.  Be ready to try on and don't forget to bring your bestie because you'll want to act out the 'Sweetest Thing' movie montage with this epic selection.  From Chanel to Dior this little boutique has curated the best of the best and outshines even the swankiest department store assortment.  


2. The Frippery

If your vintage style is a bit more on the daring side with a hint of boho, The Frippery is your new soul sister.  These are not your typical Mrs. Roper mumu's you guys!  This little gem sits next to Cheeky's  on the 111 and will distract your hunger while you patiently wait for a table - we're food dreaming about the infamous bacon flight as we type

This pretty baby came home with us!  What do you all think?  It's a major 90's throwback done all super hot and sexy.  Sorry Gucci, this buttery leather only set us back $150.00, which means $$$ left for shoes!

3. Trina Turk

All right all you Kelly Golightly fans....this is your sanctuary and one stop shop for clothing, accessories, swim, and home.  Trina Turk is an iconic staple and has quintessentially captured the Palm Springs spirit in everything she creates.  

You all know we are glutens for metallic and pink over here, so basically we kicked off our shoes and posted up for awhile in our dream space.  The staff is incredibly welcoming - their wardrobes make you entirely envious - and guides you through the euphoric atmosphere room by room.  Yes, there are rooms!  You feel like you've walked into the home of Trina herself and you secretly pray she'll be nestled in a peacock chair right around the corner.  

Accessoires everywhere!!!!!  We especially loved the featured artist M. Quan with all her celestial inspired pottery and hanging wall art.  

Thats our 1, 2, 3 roundup to keep you chic and on trend with the fashion icons roaming the desert streets.  Take a break from the pool and spa and let your man play another round of golf, because you've got some shopping to do.
